Jana Novotna serve and volley club

Okay I like Jana Novotna a lot for her playing style, here is an opportunity for you to share your memories of Jana Novotna, apart from teh famous Wimbledon tear jerkers episode which last for 5 years, what other memories do you have?

One thing which stick out to my memory most is her doubles with ASV, they were such a happy pair and also with martina Hingis, unfortuneately both partnership end with some unpleasant exchange of verbal war. But anyway forget all about that and appreciate what jana have done to tennis world

Does Novotna still chat with her fans on her yahoo club? I found it nice from her that she took time for that

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

I miss Jana! She was an AMAZING athlete!

Remember that French Open match against Anna Kournikova, I think it was 1997 -- Anna was running Jana again and again from sideline to sideline, but Jana kept getting to every ball against all odds! Like an early version of Venus! And she won the match.

Oh Jana, i miss her. I love her commentating during Eastbourne and Wimbledon

Men när natten är ljus - I ditt sjuttiotalshus
Och du är ånga, spår av ett moln
I en dröm om att fly till någonting nytt

Och du håller så hårt och när längtan blir svår
Så är jag din, din, din att ta med
Att ta ut, att ta in i någonting nytt

Yes, Jana still talks to her fans on her yahoo club. She also replies to messages.

thanks wongqks for starting so wonderful thread here! i love her style too! her elegant tennis performance will be in my mind forever and no player can compare with her style espcially for her net skill and backhand slice!


in my memory, 1999's french open, in the doubles match, jana hurt her wrist by steping on zvereva's foot for saving a ball. and she was taken off the court on the stretcher with tears. i can tell how painful she was at that time. i think that tear not just for the pain on wrist and also for the upcoming wimbledon. all these was on my local news and i heard the reporter said that that would influence her defence on the coming wimbledon... that really hurt my heart!

shirley,

Thanks for posting this link on Jana yahoo club, Jana frequently answer question on her club, but I am still waiting for her chat coz she has not done that for a long while

bull

I saw that pic as well, Jana was carried off and she just covered her face in disbelief, very sad. BUt then look at the positive side Jana achieve a lot in tennis, I will be very upset if she does not get inducted to Tennis Hall of Fame

One more note,

I am very upset no one take it where she left off, in a way that there is no serve and volleyer around, I hope it will not diminish completely, I wish Jana can coach someone or something and make her another serve and volleyer like she is.

yeah i talked to her on her club recently on what to do with my smash

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Alberto,

I don't even want to think about that match against Maria Sanchez Lorenzo LOL.

Jana decide to go to Australia since 1996 at that time to give herself a shot at Australian Open, and rightfully so, and then she play really badly, I remember she had some kind of injury as well which kept her from playing her best and also shows at the result in her carpet season in 98 (a surface in which she excel on), I think she lost like 4 match in a row or something and then lost to Steffi in round 1 in Chase Championship (surprise surprise LOL). anyway, 99 is definitely not her year LOL, but hey we all like Jana.
