I dunno what to say. She had time to rest, and nothing.

Re: Bojana Jovanovski...

I thought that she would deal with Niculescu's game.

She's probably mentally exhausted - not only did she play a lot this season (and between seasons) but many of those matches were also crazy three-setters with multiple MPs saved and wasted. Then, this is the season she has made a real breakthrough by having deep runs no one had expected her to have (maybe not even herself). And to top it all, she suddenly had to become the leader of the Serbian FC team on whose performance depended an important rubber, while only alst year she was merely Ana's alternate in the team of whom no one expected anything.
So, I guess she's bound to be a bit overwhelmed with everything that has happened these past couple of months, and it'll take her some time to take it all in and learn how to handle the pressure of not being an underdog anymore.
Also, players with Bojana's ballbash-y style are usually somewhat incosistent, and perhpas this ih her patch of poor results after which a good patch will come.
And I still think it's not too late for her to learn how to serve better - that would help her A LOT.

And the question is: "Can she get a professional coach?"
I don't think her dad is too bad, but she is really stubborn and needs some professional help.

I must say I know nothing of her dad's coaching qualities or even about Bojana's character (although she does seem grumpy but in a cute way ), but if complete nutcases like Dementieva and JJ were able to learn how to serve at some point, Bojana surely can as well. And I don't even know who Dementieva worked with (apart from her mum ) and I doubt one can be much more pig-headed than Jelena, so...

She push herself to do limits, and like in 2010 paycheck coming during this post-Australian part of HC season. She has obviously right now big problem with FATIGUE which symptoms are to not feel comfortable on court and footwork and basic shots (serve especially) is not like it used to be. Here is how such change is reflected on players results.

2011 start for Bojana:

Opening four events (+FC):
Wins: #19, #22, #24, #64, #84, #85, #94, #117, #138, #139 (all 3 TOP25 wins in straight sets)
Loses: #2, #11, #21, #25 (all loses is vs TOP25 opponents and all 4 is in three sets)

Last three events:
Wins: #95, #116, #123, #184, #187 (only one straight set wins)
Loses: #91, #120, #172 (only one three setter)


So from player which beat all non-TOP25 opponents (and vs TOP25 won 10 out of 18 sets!) Bojana so fast mutate into player which is not even able to face some TOP90 opponent, losing 10 out of 21 set which she played despite almost all this opponents are qualifiers or WC's. Let's hope she will done with this already in Miami and back amazing shape from Australia.
^^^ same explanation for IW works also for Miami. Its nothing with her mentality, bad coaching, strong opponents or whatever. Its pure biology

This is expected punishment for player which playing 22 months in the row without pause. This is pay-check for hers decision to play challengers in late october, november and december instead pause and classic off-season preparations. Same thing she do during 2009 off-season so in february-march of 2010 she barely beat anybody. But in 2009 she have many reasons to play during off-season and to improve in rankings into TOP150. In 2010 there is no any rational reason to do that when she is already TOP80 player in the world.

Fatal mistake with schedule... nothing else... She (and we) now just need to be patient... Hers body will be soon again in control of hers mind, and she will feel her shots once again. Its not injury but fatigue, so lets hope she will be 100% ready since start of clay season.

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

Re: Bojana Jovanovski...

^That's really well deserved. She handled the pressure of becoming the FC team leader overnight (from being a mere alternate) incredibly.
