Now, I meant Seles about excuse repertoire. She used all those phrases long before
Seles is bad doubles player and when she played we dont have other good player (TOP150 for example). Even with her we dont have chances to compete in world groupe 1 and she have 1.000.000.000.000.000 (zilion) times much better job for our country reaching 8 GS titles playing with our old flag than if she play for as in some stupid Europe/Africa FED CUP zone couple uneccessary matches.
Hopman Cup is exo. Nothing more. Dont bother to use in argument.
If Hopman Cup is only EXO and dont have anything with representing some country why is always all teams is for same country and named like "Russia", "USA", "Australia"...etc not (for example) like Ivanovic/Djokovic team. Also if HOPMAN CUP only EXO
competiton, Europa/Africa zone of FED CUP (or PO for 2nd world groupe) is only SHIT
competition (like azdaja already says).
for all countries gain nice money and that is reason why this EXO tournament is so prestiges and have great traditon - because have always strong competition.
From what she was tired then? Be serious.
Sorry for not following our tradition of celebrating defeats.
And why we celebrating Jankovic success in Plovdiv this year? She dont play against any TOP100 player? I tell you why - because she played two matches per day in 3 rounds and final round (in doubles she played "for two"). That is reason why HER victory (not "our team") against Romania in last day is so great, because she played extremly tired (with six matches in last three days before final round). In 2006 we also dont have real "team" we have only Ana. She also played two matches per day in groupe, but in final round day she must play not against some (non-TOP150) weak team like Romania. Tired Ana must play against Israel with Peer which is phisicaly must stronger player than Ana in that time and Peer have much better support in that week from rest of Israel team (Smashnova and Obziler) than Ana. That is reason why she lose two marathon matches in that day (including 10-8 in 3rd set in doubles).
By your words. Not even her camp says that. And they already blowing that up.
injury is not best word, but fact is that between her last match (Wimby SF) and her next match (i hope to see her in Toronto or L.A.) she will lose atleast one month and she must miss atleast trhee events which she plan to play this summer in her shedule (FED CUP, Stanford and San Diego).
Today's kids - 10,12,14 year olds. I said its all true she was saying, just ask why she doesnt help to change things for the better and she is in position to do that. You know how much players parents fight for more influence in federation. Who would dare to say no to her after she (and JJ) bring some real cash? This is way Nole&Srdjan doing. Tit for tat.
She is 19y.o. girls who traveling whole year across world and played and training tennis - not some businessman, investor, civil engineer, politician with connections... If you realy belive that Srdjan Djokovic (and Damir Dokic before him) only want to help young serbian tennis players and spend many of they kids with theys "tennis academy" projects, thats your problem. If our state dont see interess to finaly build that tennis center in Belgrade or have big problem to find good location or money, why do you think that is must be job of some 19 y.o. girl? By the way president of our tennis asociation Zivoinovic is much reached man than Ana right now with much better connections in country and have all times of this world to create atleast litle better conditions for new young kids. It's his job.
Next Fed Cup is right after AU open. What are chances she will play? There will be always something more important.
She will publish her shedule already in december like always. She is not cheater with always new excuses like you want to describe her. We know that she dont play in april couple months before. In january 2008 she will be tired after AO and have to defend Tokyo final. But because she is not so smart girl i fear that she will play that stupid Euro/Africa zone competition if she dont have some injury problems. So chances is about 70/30 that she will play.
You probably saw that piece on TV. Out of the blue?
When was last time you saw THAT kind of report?
I enjoy every time i see her on TV, i wouldnt mind whole channel
dedicated just to Ana, but that one was too much. Clear "damage control".
You obviously not watching RTS. In RTS tradition in last 50 years "reports" is always like this (black or white - nothing between). They ignore Ana and all her success by years (even Montreal, Tokyo and Berlin final dont give publicity), but when tennis success of our players this year is so big that whole world talking about that our national TV like always going after ignorence in complete extreme contrast after Roland Garros this year. Also "THAT kind of report" dont have nothing with Ana and her team - she never have connections with our corrupted journalism. I think her new big sponsor "Verano Motors" care for this new sounds about Ana in week where they agree with that new sponsorsheep.
I still dont understand WHAT DO YOU REALY WANT OF HER and what you realy have against her. If we compare her with all other serbian and worlds athletes she is very close to be "perfect model" for all others!
