I remember her words then. And i said she will "play" like Seles, it was obvious.
She played FC next year - so you wrong.
Playing invitational exo paying 20K per match has nothing with representing her country. Just bad decision from her handlers and they corrected it next year. Her (and Nole's) price this year was too big for Hopman Cup. And its not like she was much better this year in Australia.
Playing HOPMAN CUP is 10X prestiges for some country than playing in Euro/Africa zone of FED CUP or play-off for World Group 2. Also Ana played for Serbia 6 matches in Hopman Cup (Novak too) - are you realy belive that organizers give Ana and Novak 120K+120K (20K per match) for that??? Jelena and Jimmy reach 45K+45K for slam win in mix doubles... Also she played in that matches against all TOP50 players (including TOP10 Kuznetsova) and for example JJ this season in Plovdiv and Kosice in all her FED CUP matches (singles and dubles) played only one match against TOP100 player (Cibulkova #76). So please dont undervalue her and Djokovic decision to represent our country at HC in 2006 instead have normal preparation for AO.
Had she won she wouldnt need to play two hard matches. Its her own fault she went there like on vacation.
You complain against Ana "person" but you give so inhuman and cruel comment like this.
She sacrifice whole her 2006 clay season in that day playing for our country - and thats your "thanks Ana". In both that matches she played against Peer, player with maybe best condition at WTA tour and that is reason why tired Ana last day lose both 3rd sets. Are you think that is Jelena fault that injury against Cibulkova (much worse player than Peer) because she dont won that match in straigh sets or before 3 hours of play? She played tired after Wimbledon and that is reason why she lose 2nd set with 6:1 or have big problems in 3rd against player like Cibulkova. Jelena in Kosice 2007 and Ana in Plovdiv 2006 played that hard matches for Serbia not for theyself and we dont have right to complain - its they fault because they played so hard matches.
Mystery diary entry? She knew it all along.
No - she know that already after first physical in that monday and public that results of her site in tuesday, but because she want to verify again she drop out that. But when results two days after that is same she publish her decision to not play again but this time like definitive. Her injury is obviously more serious than Jelena's (JJ will play San Diego and Ana not).
I didnt said once she should go there to sit on bench to show her support.
I have same right to say "we were so close", i had same contribution as her.
So what you want of her last week? To play with serious knee injury?
support today kids!?
she should stop whining how no one supported her when she was a kid. Or she should support today's kids. Works both ways.
What do you talking about? Jankovic, Lukic, Timotic and Jovanovic is all older than Ana! Or why you expecting of her to tell lies about conditions in Serbia in Milosevic era or in first years after his down?
So, you are saying she will eventually play Fed Cup?
She still dont have 20 but already played for our country 7 FED CUP matches, 6 HOPMAN CUP matches and want represent Serbia at Olympic games. So, you are saying she will NEVER eventually play Fed Cup
? Only because she not playing with dangerous knee injury last week?
If you could follow media here you would see that her camp is very aware they made a mess and tried to clean it up. Piece on state TV news was laughable.
Before her Paris final media in Serbia much favor Jelena and Nole than Ana. Even have dirty campaign against her (even Serbian tennis asociation is been part of that). Whole world speaking about Ana in superlatives in last 3 YEARS
and in Serbian media only in last MONTH
- and you are already protest because that.
