Re: Are there any fans of BOTH Jankovic and Ivanovic?

a few years ago plenty of people liked both of them and you'd expect that at least from serbian posters. however, it is very difficult to like both players when they so obviously can't stand each other.

personally i never cared about jelena's tennis career and still don't. my problem with her is just in situations where i feel she is misbehaving towards ana - the eternal fed cup drama, the madrid incident etc. actually the rivalry between ana and jj used to be a very one-sided affair because ana was so much more successful and often at the expense of jelena, so it was the jj fans who started the drama, at least on this forum. it was their constant bitching about ana and the said jelena's misbehaviour that made things more ballanced.

on her own jelena even nearly won me over during her us open semifinal against justine. however, she managed to choke in such a lulzy way that instead of becoming a moderate supporter i lost all respect that i might have had for her up to that point. she was more likeable during her wimbledon mixed doubles title run, but such moments are rare.

I guess I liked Jankovic once but fans on TF and their personal feud can seriously mess with your head about who you like.

I don't think that's true at all, it's just that we project our fellings on their relationship. If there's any bad blood between them as of recently, it was caused by the Serbian media and some people within Serbian tennis circles. But I still don't think they give each other a thought (when not playing a match, of course).

I like Jelena more than Ana. But I can´t say, that I really dislike Ivanovic.
Ana herself seems to be a gentle nice girl.
Sometimes I start to dislike her, when her fans (some of her fans, not all of them) gets too annoying.

True.

I used to like both of them a lot in 2007/2008. Not so much now, I have started to dislike JJ for her classless behavior at times (the Ana imitating at Madrid ). I still like Ana, I like JJ with streaks of dislike.

Not to start a war, but don't you think Ana's fist pumps in the first place are classless behavior?

Most Serbian fans like them both! I can understand their positions and differences, and they are both my number one favorites on the tour!

No. There is nothing wrong with fistpumping.

But imitating the exaggerated fistpump is classless?

How about Azarenka's behavior? Is it always classy? BTW, I like Vika, so don't take it the wrong way.

I liked them both, until I saw Ana play a tight match.

They way she was acting during the Kleybanova match in 2009 was !

Ana's fist pumps belong at the jersey shore (guido style) - those are not normal tennis fist pumps

1.) Not true--many fans are fans of both, but often like one more than the other.
2.) She was always a pusher. If anything, she's turned into a ballbasher now, and look how that turned out.

In my head, I pretend that Ana and JJ are actually secret bestfriends and do everything together, but pretend to make fun of each other sometimes and act like there's a rivalry just for drama (it was JJ's idea, of course).
