Is this proof that Jelena could possibly win a slam???

I know many write her off and say she will never win one but given how well she played in her first final...as a jj hater i'll be the first to admit that against anyone else she would have won (probably not ana since she can't seem to beat ana lol)...but then again maybe not....maybe she just played that way because it was serena and she knew she had to be more aggressive???


i dunno...your thoughts??

I really thinks she plays at the level she knows she can get away with.

Winning a slam...

I hope.

I honestly am surprised with how well she did tonight...

I think mentally if she took it up a notch she could be in contention

cause when a heart breaks, it never breaks even.....

Re: Is this proof that Jelena could possibly win a slam???

I think that was the best she could play and like you said TW, against anyone other than Serena and Ana, she probably would have won.
I don't know if she can keep it up and stay healthy, (although Jankovic alternated when she was healthy and not healthy in these matches according to her opponents play, )

hmm that's my only draw back....she seems to only turn it on when she's playing serena/venus/jh(when she was playing)/masha....when she's not playing a big girl she's content with grinding you down and waiting for your errors, which won't work against who isn't giving her the errors...it was actually great to watch her be aggressive for some parts of the match...i guess we will have to wait and see what she does from here

I am also studying economics man ..tell me Snezana has to practice economics on her wardrobe too.
Her degree is meaningless in the west,because she was practicing in a non performing economy ....

She wouldn't have beaten neither an in form Maria, nor Venus. She might have beaten Ana though.

But JJ is slam worthy, no doubt about that. And it's been a while we're aware of that instead of being blindfolded by hate

Re: Is this proof that Jelena could possibly win a slam???

Ok honestly, i think the only reason the match was even close was because Serena was wayyyyyyy too passive. She wanted to beat Jelena at her own game and she kind of did but their match at the AO was still on Serena's mind and she had decided she wouldnt gift the match to JJ by making a million UFEs.

Any hard hitting top player can take out JJ on a good day and to win a GS you need to play atleast 3 such players. She might sneak a win or even two and make the SF's or finals but for her to win a GS she would have to have a very kind draw with players playing subpar tennis.
