Jelena is alive! *UNBREAKABLE* Book out November 1!

Jelena is alive! She just gave an itnerview for Serbian daily Blic. She lives in Australia with Tin. She has a private run business and occassionally works for Tennis Australia as a part time coach and commentator. She also participates in some exhibitionist events in Australia and Asia.
She is currently writing an autobigraphy and she will reveal some juicy details. She mentioned that book a few times, so looks like she is slowly starting to promote it

In other news, Damir is selling his mansion in Serbia for 1.8 million euros. He says the house is too big for him, he is old and can't maintain it anymore.

Will try to keep this thread active with JD updates.

Re: Jelena is alive!

I've got her commentating now, on Cibulkova vs Makarova, on ESPN3 in the USA. Did not expect this!

Re: Jelena is alive!

JD was one of the Australian presenters for our WGII play-off against Serbia.
Her face is so chubby and unrecognisable she could walk past you and you would not know it was her.
I didn’t until she was introduced and spoke.
Does anyone know if she is pregnant?
I hope so, that explains it and she will drop the weight.
Perhaps there is a medical issue at play. Thyroid problems maybe?
Can anyone shed any light on this dramatic change in her appearance?
It's strange to look at her when she talks.
It's like she's been made up for a role in a movie and her character weighs 100+ kilograms.
I cannot watch her like this.

Jelena has clearly put on weight and looks different than in her tennis playing days, but as long as she's healthy & happy, that's what counts.

Re: Jelena is alive!

Jelena often had weight issues even during her playing career, so for me it's not surprising at all that she's put on weight after her retirement. But the main thing is that she's happy and I think that's the case, so everything's fine. Also I'm glad that she does something tennis related and didn't disappear completely.

Do you happen to know how Jelena is as a commentator? I haven't heard her personally.

Yes, I heard Jelena commentating on the Lucic-Baroni vs. Radwanska match at this year's Australian Open and I liked the way she commentated. For me it was a good balance between shot analysis, tactics and her knowledge of the game and what she would have done in certain situations, what she found difficult herself while playing etc. Jelena also talked a bit about Mirjana Lucic and that she found it hard to anticipate where Mirjana was playing the ball. I think that's interesting because Jelena and Mirjana have similar game styles and I would have thought that it's easier to play against someone who plays a similar style like you do. Anyway, all in all it was very nice to hear her commentating and in my opinion she did a very good job.

Well that's good to hear. Not every former tennis player makes for a good commentator, regardless of how skilled or successful they were, but it sounds like Jelena has a talent for commentating.
