What the hell is wrong with Jelena Jankovic ?

It seems she lost her movement and her accuracy. And she is not even injured.
Where is the JJ from 2007 ? From the end of 2008 ?

I have the feeling Jelena doesn't care anymore, just look at her when Bartoli beat her. And right now, she is transparent.

Where is the drama?

What a miss on her first breakpoint ! and on her second bp again...

Re: What the hell is wrong with Jelena Jankovic ?

I saw her playing in Paris vs Amélie. Her serve, especially her 2nd serve is really crappy. And when she faces retrievers like Bartoli or Mauresmo, she's suffering. And her game isn't as deep as last year.

Vs Kanepi, she's still in the business.

Maybe she's just got as high as she can and the only way is down ?

Did you watch tennis in 2007 & 2008 ? Or even at the US Open 2006.

Re: What the hell is wrong with Jelena Jankovic ?

Maybe the extra bulk is slowing her down? Being half a step slower than you're used to will mess up your game.

Um. Bartoli is a retriever?

But I saw her in Hong Kong and she was going for way too much all the time; didn't try to set up the points like she did so well at the end of 2008. Her crosscourt forehands back then and the incredible backhand helped her a lot. Her 2nd serve has gone back to what it was two years ago...almost a drop shot... And her bulking up didn't help and now she is slower than ever.

Three tournaments this year and only 1 quarterfinal reached. That is so unlike JJ. Ana has more QFs than her this year

Waiting for Ana Ivanovic to just retire already .
Justine Henin. Amelie Mauresmo. Francesca Schiavone.

Overrated player.
The weakestt n.1 in tennis history.

She misses her so called injuries, though.

Re: What the hell is wrong with Jelena Jankovic ?

i thought that losing the #1 would take off the pressure of her shoulders and that she would start to play better again but that hasn't been the case.

she doesn't seem happy anymore, she isn't smiling it's like she isn't enjoying it anymore

And they both obviously failed
