John Wertheim reveals Jankovic drama on middle Sunday

Quick story: I arrive at the club on open Middle Sunday, to walk around the empty grounds for an hour, meet a friend, and use the WiFi. I stroll by the practice courts and pass Jelena Jankovic and her mother. J.J. is grimacing in pain. She is mummified in tape. Mom looks concerned. At one point J.J. grabs a railing for support and adjusts this blue bandage on her knee. I notice that it's about 2:20 p.m. and assume she's early bailed on a practice session that began at 2:00 p.m. Had one been so inclined -- and I assure you I was not -- they could very easily have profited from this inside information. Jankovic, though favored to win, barely put up a fight in her next match, no surprise to anyone who'd seen so gimpy the day before. Points: A) Before, absent concrete evidence, we accused people of fixing matches, we should consider this more plausible situation. Person A witnesses something -- eg, Jankovic exhibiting less mobility than Grandpa Simpson -- and either places a bet or calls his buddy to share this tip. Doesn't make it right, but least the purity of competition isn't being undermined. B) You are a fool to bet on tennis. Someone always has superior information.

Re: John Wertheim reveals Jankovic drama on middle Sunday

Yes but you forget one very important thing. Miss Jankovic is a drama queen diva supreme. She has limped around many times before with injuries and yet gone on to win big matches. So to know when its real and she really cant play good or not is not always certain. Take last Australian open as an example she hobbled through that beating both Williams sisters. She had injured herself a few weeks earlier in the Hopman Cup exhibition. She continued to play at the Adidas International the week after when most sane people would have had that week off. Then her performance at the Australian Open under an injury cloud. So I wouldnt bet on her not performing injury or not.

Nobody is "Drama Queen" at practice courts when she alone with her mother and sparing partner.

Jelena have creazy shedule in 2006 and 2007 which is reason for many injuries and fatigue problems and that produce some strange loses or retirements in past. This season she also played litle too much for TOP5 player, but it's much better than in 2007 (and no more doubles) and that is reason for her much consistent results (Wimbledon R16 become her first 2008 result where she not reach QF)... but b/c JJ past her body is now very vulnerable for injuries and unfortunately in match against Wozniacki she REALY injured her knee. End of story.

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

I hate that we don't know how serious this injury really is! It sounds bad and JJ hasn't put up her summer schedule on her site.
