Jankovic: "I can't answer that now. I'm not in the mood."

Pretty routine question:
Q. The Djokovic family is working on a tennis tournament as you know. I would like to know your thoughts on what that means for the future of the tennis in your country and as well...

And it gets this response:
JELENA JANKOVIC: I can't answer that now. I'm not in the mood.

Something doesn't sit right with me having that attitude, it was a very normal question in a press conference nothing at all controversial that she might not want to answer.

Re: Jankovic: "I can't answer that now. I'm not in the mood."

Jelena is a bit of a prima-donna

Of even more significance, there's this little gap in Graf's resume the size of the hole in the ozone layer: It's called Monica Seles. Was Graf the best female player of all time? She wasn't even the best in the heart of her career.

Nothing wrong with what she said... Maybe she didn't feel like going into details about it... so she said she's not in the mood..

I find it funny because it's something I would say if I don't feel like explaining or express how I feel at that particular time....

Re: Jankovic: "I can't answer that now. I'm not in the mood."

I remember when she was asked to say something in French and she answered " I am not in the mood "

Nothing wrong with that, another useless thread.

Ain't nobody got time fo dat.

It's still rude and she is a professional, she shouldn't give answers like that to a really normal question.

It might be a routine question to us sitting at a PC, but in a press conference after a match theres other things going on in the mind, etc.

She already answered that like million times. This time she wasn't up for it because she's upset. Everyone can understand that, I hope.

Indeed she has. And we too have the right to consider her answer extremely rude and proof of a conceited mind largely exceeding the lady's achievements.

And I believe politeness, profissionalism and respect for others are a big deal and JJ's answer is lacking in all these three departments.
