Will Jelena Jankovic save top 3 blushes and get a medal?

Hey folks

After the pull-out of Ivanovic and the 1r defeat of Kuznetsova, only Jelena Jankovic out of the current top 3 in the Olympic tournament. Do you think she will save their increasingly poor reputation and manage to medal or depart early on like most of their recent tournaments?

I like all three players, but I am starting to think that they are the worst top 3 in history..

I completely agree with you. I have friends who don't watch tennis anymore because of this fact. They say they'll tune in again when the real top 3 show up again.

I agree, they must be the weakest top 3 in history. If the thread about JJ's movement was anything to go by then she won't save them but who knows...sometimes she's injured one day and fine the next...though this seems to be one of the times when she's actually properly injured.

Serena's in the top 4 again though...maybe she can help!

Venus Williams
Serena Williams

Re: Will Jelena Jankovic save top 3 blushes and get a medal?

After this tournament it is very likely that Serena will be number 2 (depending on how far Jankovic goes) so things will be better,

Rena's Army, Ana and Vika!!!

Don't worry Serena will save the WTA.

But this time you have to thank her

Re: Will Jelena Jankovic save top 3 blushes and get a medal?

IMO the whole field is very weak at moment, as far as consistency in concerned, every one in a while someone gets to the spotlight but at the very next tournament she either pulls-out or gets beaten by a lower-ranked oponent. that goes for everyone: the williams sisters, ana, jelena, sharapova. no one is consistent at the moment...
however that doesn't neceserily has to be a bad thing , if nothing, it's more fun, and less predicitve this way.

the tour schedule is very tough, and plus, the girls now have much more off-court duties, and interests.

maybe the really consistent player at the moment is safina, but i wonder how long will that last? we'll have to wait and see...

that's not right too, she plays on such a limited schedule. it is more fair for a player that overplays to be on top then the player as inconsistent as serena or venus. true they are great champions, but you can't live on old glory, and be on top. that's not good either...
