Shame on Ivanovic, Sharapova, and Jankovic for their poor Wimbledon performances

this was just embarrassing for the sport that these supposedly top players lost without even a decent fight in early rounds to no-name players. Hats off to the Williams and Dementieva for bringing their best game to the most-watched tennis event in the world.

Early losses usually mean top players arrive at the next slam rearing to go, look at the sisters and their early FO losses. Watch how maria tears up the hard court season next.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Thanks for holding the right people responsible and now blaming Venus and Serena for their failures.
Not sure it would have made a difference if they had advanced to meet the sisters, but their performances were disappointing, ntl.


It's 2008 and I'm shopping for a new fave. Hell no! And Venus is still playing?


I Love You, Roger and Venus, 5-time Wimbledon Champions!

It's time to get over this. Every player has early losses throughout his or her career.

Each of the 'no-name' players, actually does have a name.

Re: Shame on Ivanovic, Sharapova, and Jankovic for their poor Wimbledon performances

Ivanovic and Jankovic are not grasscourt players.

Ivanovic doesn't like the low bounce and the lack of time on her huge forehand. Also, her movement and backhand are poor.

Jankovic will always be vulnerable to the Tanasugarns, Bartolis, and Zhengs on grass. Too much of a defensive pusher and such a weak serve.

I am only disappointed in Pova to be honest.

But i guess she couldn't do it!

I really wanted her in the SF!
