Is this Jelena's year?

For a Grand Slam that is. She's one of 3 numbers ones to have not won a slam, and 4(5?) to become number 1 without a slam first (Clijsters became number 1 before her slam...but I'm not 100% sure about Ivanovic. She became number 1 RIGHT after the 2008 SF French Open against Jelena, so technically she was number 1 without her first slam).

Can she do it this year? If there's one slam I would put money on the Empress to win, it's Roland Garros. Random champions every year, Serena, Maria, and Azarenka aren't too fond of this surface (so no top 3 winning everything) and most importantly, she's 9-0 so far this year on clay. CAN SHE DO IT?

Re: Is this Jelena's year?

This could be her year! If I wasn't so sure Venus would win the French this year, I'd next pick Jelena to win it.

Undefeated on clay

She is winning FO. I don't see anyone stopping her, but once she wins her 1st one, she wont stop there. Wimby & USO are also a huge possibility. If she wins all 3 remaining this year then we can start talking about the JJ Slam.

Re: Is this Jelena's year?

I saw her in Brisbane last year and thought she was working hard, moving well and seemed focused. I predicted last year would be her year :lol

Re: Is this Jelena's year?

How about Jelena actually beat a contender for grand slams first before we put her back in the list of contenders herself. She hasn't beaten anyone remotely relevant in terms of winning grand slams.

I don't think she's beaten a top 10 player in the past year.
