Re: Am i the only one who thought jankovics injury time out was b.s.

Not necessarily, Serena ended up taking a medical timeout at the same time as JJ and it was perfectly legal for both of them to do so........ They're both professional tennis players, they understand what they can and can't do. The pity of it for Serena is that she played really flat, way outside her usual style.

Having said that, I'm not a fan of either of the Williams girls, so ultimately I'm happy JJ won the match.

It's possible. But if it's within the rules, then she's doing nothing wrong.
And she was injured in Perth.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

I think that a lot of the "injury" time outs are BS. Yeah, it is within the rules, but that doesn't mean it is right.

Life is short...enjoy it while you can.

All,

Didn't she say something along the line that her injury was career threatening?

its a bad part of watching the womens game, but its started to become a trend the past five or so years.

players are now blocking it out of their mind more so than they used to. it used totally ruin the match for the opponent.

She pulled out of two single matches at the Hopman Cup,and during doubles she was hardly moving,she played her 1st round match for almost three hours.I'am surprised she not injured more.I don't think she was faking at all.

Is it that hard for you to actually move on?

She was feeling pain and knew that her best chance to win was to do it in straight sets. Getting treatment helped her move better and this caused Serena to lose. Jelena and Justine are my total faves and the players you like are the ones I cannot stand so I am just fascinated by how your mind works. LOL.

I don't know if it was b.s. or not. She did appear to have a stiff back earlier in the match. All of her injuries this month have seemed overdramatized, though. She's not the only player like that, though, so...

Can you move on already? Serena already lost her match. Jankovic is in the semis. Nothing will change this fact.

It was drama from very early in the match. You could see something like this developing.

Looking forward to more encounters between the two.
