Federer takes swipe at Jankovic

After his loss to Andy Murray today Federer said:

Quote:
"If [Murray] carries on the way he is he will have a shot," said Federer. "Things change very quickly.

"But I hope if he were to become number one he would win a Slam - not like the women's side. No disrespect to Jelena Jankovic but it took Rafa five Grand Slams to become number one."

Lets make the 2014 US Open the Anybody But Serena (ABS) Slam

That's hardly a swipe. He prefaced it with "no disrespect."

And Jelena's still ranked higher

Re: Federer takes swipe at Jankovic

that's actually him taking a swipe at the tour, not jelena, he basicly just said how easy it is to become number 1 on the wta tour.

Re: Federer takes swipe at Jankovic

he should have just left it at the first and second sentence. the last two weren't necessary. poor jelena, i don't see why this is such a big deal, i mean it's not the first time it's happened. i hope she wins one soon.

but not at the expense of my girl.

Behind you one million percent Vicky D! You will prevail In Jesus Name. Amen.

She's already answered to these statements before with saying "Grand Slam Champs get lucky and play well for 2 weeks" or something like that while #1 is about the whole year..blah blah blah.

Re: Federer takes swipe at Jankovic

If one reads between the lines I think what Federer is really saying is that the women's tour don't have anyone as good as him around. With him in the mix getting to number one is very tough. He's not exactly modest.
