Her form in Australia was pretty decent, but then again it was last year as well so..

I hope she can but surely 2013/2014 is her last chance to do so.

She has the skill to do so, but probably doesn't have the dedication to adapt her game now that she's passed her physical peak.

Daniela Hantuchova.

Casey Dellacqua, Jelena Jankovic, Anna-Lena Groenefeld,
Jelena Dokic, Mirjana Lucic, Sara Tomic, Sloane Stephens
Melanie Oudin, Kiki Bertens, Kaia Kanepi, Alison Riske

Re: Is there a chance that Jankovic can ressurect her form/career?

Define resurrect? She was clearly fit (as in top shape) and motivated at the Aussie Open, but she is still a step slower than in her prime and the main problem her forehand is still complete trash. She still cannot hit a fh winner to save her life. So how far can you go with that? Obviously at her age there is the danger that her dedication and motivation drop, when the results don´t follow, which happened last year. I think she´ll finish the year somewhere between 15 and 25.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

It would be nice to see her to back in the top 15.

If she finds her motivation again she could get back to top 20.

I'm sure she can get back to Top 15. It would be nice to at least watch her play competitive matches against Top 10 players instead of losing to whomever in R1....

She's way past her physical peak which makes it ten times harder.
Making the QFs in both the French and the US Open would be amazing results for her.

She is not on track for anything, she will not be making the QFs of slams, she will not crack the top 15, and she will most certainly not be having competitive matches with anyone inside the top 10.

Okay, won a WTA event only beating a single top 100 player; Cadantu. Phenomenal achievement.

That's what I thought of Coezter around the same time in her career when she won on of the Feb. clay tournis.
She won one more Feb. clay tourni and retired as a top 30 player.

She was 33 when she retired that's a big factor in the story as well since Jankovic is no where close to being 33.
