Top 2 Qualify for Sony Ericsson Championships

ST. PETERSBURG, FL, USA – Jelena Jankovic and Ana Ivanovic are the first players to secure treasured singles berths for the season-ending Sony Ericsson Championships, set to take place at the Khalifa International Tennis Complex in Doha, Qatar, from November 4-9, 2008. The world's Top 8 singles players and Top 4 doubles teams from the 2008 Sony Ericsson WTA Tour season will compete for the Championships title and a share of the record prize money of $4.45 million.
The two Serbs are currently in first and second place in the Race to the Sony Ericsson Championships, with Jankovic having earned 2,770 points and Ivanovic 2,761 points. For Jankovic, the current world No.2, this will mark her second qualification for the prestigious year-end event. Jankovic, who has won six career Tour singles titles, is projected to pass the $5-million mark in career prize money at the Rogers Cup presented by National Bank in Montréal. Thus far in 2008, she successfully defended her title at Rome, finished runner-up at Miami and reached five more semifinals, including at the Australian Open and Roland Garros.
"Qualifying for the Sony Ericsson Championships is always one of the important goals that I set for myself at the beginning of the year," Jankovic said. "Naturally I am proud to have achieved it at this early stage of the year. I look forward to competing in Doha and hope to do really well out there."
Ivanovic became the 17th No.1 ranked player in Tour history in June of this year after capturing her first Grand Slam title at Roland Garros. She has also won at Indian Wells, finished runner-up at the Australian Open and reached two more semifinals. She was awarded the Tour's Most Improved Player award earlier this year for her 2007 achievements.
"I am proud to have already qualified for the Sony Ericsson Championships," Ivanovic said. "This season has been a great year for me as I achieved two of my life's goals by winning my first Grand Slam and reaching No.1. To win the tournament in Doha would be the perfect end to a season I'll never forget."
"Jelena and Ana are amazing athletes and champions, both on and off the court,” said Larry Scott, CEO of the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour. "Both players are fan favorites who have had fantastic results in 2008 and earned their spots in the Sony Ericsson Championships in Doha, which promises to be one of the most exciting season-ending finales in Tour history."
"The Sony Ericsson Championships will be an exciting finale to what has been a fantastic year for the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour," said Aldo Liguori, Corporate Vice President and Head of Global Communications & PR for Sony Ericsson. "We are delighted to see that two of this season's most successful players are the first to qualify for the Sony Ericsson Championships. Both Ana and Jelena have worked hard to secure their place in this tournament, and both are great ambassadors for the sport and the continuing effort to drive women's tennis forward."
Sony Ericsson is committed to bringing entertainment, innovation and glamour to tennis by creating unique sporting events such as the 2008 Sony Ericsson Championships in Doha. This tournament will bring the excitement of the game to a new audience, with Doha set to benefit from the biggest tennis event ever to be held in the region. Sony Ericsson strives to energize the fan experience at the Championships, by bringing them closer to tennis through the integration of innovation and technology, to deliver the best possible sports experience.
The Championships were first played in 1972 and since then the event has been held in such notable venues as Madison Square Garden, New York City; the Olympiahalle in Munich; Staples Center in Los Angeles; and the Recinto Ferial Casa de Campo in Madrid. Former singles champions include Tracy Austin, Kim Clijsters, Chris Evert, Evonne Goolagong, Steffi Graf, Martina Hingis, Martina Navratilova, Gabriela Sabatini, Serena Williams and Justine Henin. Cara Black and Liezel Huber, defending champions in doubles, lead in the Doubles Race with 3962 points, followed by Anabel Medina Garrigues and Virginia Ruano Pascual.

Re: Jelena Jankovic News and Articles Thread, vol 2

July 30, 2008
Jelena Jankovic
MONTREAL, QUEBEC
J. JANKOVIC/A. Wozniak
6-0, 6-4

THE MODERATOR: Questions.

Q. Is there a minimum rest time? Did you ask for a later match?
JELENA JANKOVIC: In less than 12 hours I'm practicing again. I almost can have breakfast here with you guys (laughter).
Q. So is it a good thing that things went pretty well for you tonight?
JELENA JANKOVIC: Yeah, it's a good thing that I was able to finish in two sets. It was a good match. Especially the first match is always tough, playing against a Canadian, knowing that the crowd will be against me, knowing all the circumstances, it's not so easy.
But, you know, I was able to stay focused and was able to get through the match. So I'm happy with that and looking forward to my next match.
Q. The first set, things went pretty fast.
JELENA JANKOVIC: I was really focused. You know, I didn't know what to expect from the crowd so I wanted to win every point. I was really out there and I wanted to do my best so that, you know, the crowd has less to cheer about. I was able to do that.
But then the second set I a little bit lost my concentration. I lost a little bit of my movement. I was a little bit slower. Especially in the hours like this, so late, it's hard to keep your body going. I felt a little bit slow motion. I never play this time. It was a little bit hard, but I managed to finish it in two sets.
Q. Did you have any problems moving with your knee?
JELENA JANKOVIC: A little bit here and there. I have some problems where I'm not as stable as I was before I got injured. But it takes time to get it stronger and feel better on that leg.
Q. Do you know anything about Stephanie Dubois?
JELENA JANKOVIC: I watched her today against Kirilenko. I don't know much about her. She's another Canadian, another player that the crowd is looking forward to cheer on, you know, at this tournament.
I just really have to go out there and really focus on myself and try to play my game and I hope I do well.
Q. You're going to turn out to be the mean one.
JELENA JANKOVIC: The Canadians will hate me soon (laughter). I mean, it's the draw, you know. You cannot choose. I wish I didn't play the Canadians. I wish, you know, to let some other girls be in these situations, like maybe Kirilenko. It's sometimes very hard when you have all the people against you, sometimes cheering during the points. But, you know, they try their best to, you know, support the Canadian player, which is normal when you play at home.
Q. Were you happy to see that most of the crowd had gone to bed by the time your match started?
JELENA JANKOVIC: They didn't go to bed (smiling). I was going to go to bed before them, you know. Here the crowd is really great. It's one of the tournaments where so many people come and support the players. It's really great to see. You know, I hope they continue to come and watch tennis and hopefully we have a great week of tennis, a great tournament.
Q. So you don't plan on complaining about the fact you have to play tomorrow afternoon?
JELENA JANKOVIC: No, I don't need to complain. I just have to get a good night of sleep. Hopefully I fall asleep, you know, quite quick. If I don't, then what can I do? I will try my best to be as ready as possible for tomorrow.
Q. The top-seeded players seem pretty roughed up right now. Ivanovic spoke about a thumb injury. Sharapova just got out of the tournament. You have a knee injury. Is it something that everything is going bad right now?
JELENA JANKOVIC: What can we do? This is the game. This is the sport. Injuries are part of the sport. We really try our best when we are competing and we try to put hundred percent effort into every match, into every practice.
Sometimes you cannot control the injuries, even though you try very hard to keep your body in shape, to keep everything as strong as possible.
But, you know, sometimes it's just very hard and some areas are weaker than others. Maybe it's just a genetical (sic) or sometimes bad luck. But what can we do? This is life. This is the way it goes.
Q. Your footwork looked amazing. You looked at ease on the court.
JELENA JANKOVIC: I'm trying to get back, you know, to how I was moving before because you guys didn't see me play in L.A., but I had some problem moving, problems reacting to the ball. I lost that explosiveness that I used to have, that quick start.
Little by little, I'm improving that on the practice court. I'm getting more confidence because especially with what I did in Wimbledon, you don't feel so confident to run on certain shots. You feel like I should just let the ball go. I don't want to risk of doing something. I'm a little bit afraid.
So, you know, to get that fear out and feel more confident in yourself with your body, it takes a little bit of time.
Q. Does the hard court make you feel a little bit more stable?
JELENA JANKOVIC: Yeah, for sure. Hard court after grass, it's great to be on hard court where I don't have to slip as much. But my movement is, as well, a little bit lousy. I tend to do those splits, all these kind of things. But in the moment I'm trying not to do these things, to keep safe.

I expected the Canadian crowd to be full of crazy Serbs, just like in Australia.

Re: Jelena Jankovic News and Articles Thread, vol 2



Tanja Brzakovic, a film director, has recently completed shooting of a documentary film about our tennis player Jelena Jankovic entitled “Jelenin svet”. The film follows her to Madrid, Berlin, and Belgrade and is scheduled for September.

The film about the 22-years old opens with her waking up in her hotel room, getting up, getting dressed, washing her teeth in the bathroom-everything most girls of her age do anywhere in the world. From that moment on, any resemblance with other girls vanishes. The girl has a very strict day plan to stick to, beginning with breakfast, training, massage, and consultations with her coach, up to the contact with fans, press conferences and delivering autographs. Her mother, a faithful companion of hers, stands behind as a manager and adviser.

Jelena is surrounded with her fans from all over the world and in the film, she tells us about her main goal- to become a number one in the world of tennis. She also discovers her personal feelings when getting emotional. A film crew, which made film “Jelenin svet”, was fascinated with her energy and her famous smile.

Producer Nebojsa Miljkovic took part in the project as a cameraman.
-To work with her it really is something incredible! She and film director Tanja Brzakovic had a great time together and they understood perfectly well each other. We put so much effort in this film currently undergoing montage process- for “Blic” speaks Nebojsa Miljkovic which producer’s company “Talas film” actually produced this film.

The film director Tanja Brzakovic graduated from the Faculty of Drama Arts in Belgrade, with her postgraduate studies done in Hamburg. She has been living in Berlin for some time. So far, she has made 15 films and was awarded for her work worldwide. The film about Jelena Jankovic will be probably available for audience to watch in September, and it is not excluded that Jelena shall have been ranked first and made her dreams come through by that time.

Jankovic ousts Dubois at Rogers Cup
Pat Hickey, Canwest News Service
Published: Thursday, July 31, 2008

MONTREAL -- Jelena Jankovic is a heartbreaker.

On two successive days, she has dashed the hopes of Canada's top women's tennis players and disappointed the fiercely partisan crowds at the Jarry Tennis Stadium.

Jankovic, the No. 2 seed from Serbia, reached the quarter-finals of the US$1.34-million Rogers Cup Canadian Open with a 6-3, 6-2 win over Stéphanie Dubois of Montreal.

Eighteen hours earlier, Jankovic raced through a 6-0, 6-4 win over Aleksandra Wozniak, the top-ranked Canadian from nearby Blainville, Que.

"Maybe the people will start to hate me now," she said with a smile.

"In those two matches, the crowd was obviously against me. Playing a Canadian, a home-crowd favorite, it's not too easy to be in this kind of atmosphere," said Jankovic, who will face unseeded Dominika Cibulkova on Friday.

"But I tried my best. I wanted to be focused on myself, on my game, on what I have to do in order to win. I'm pleased, you know, how I handled the whole situation. Happy to get through this match."

Jankovic described the two Canadians as "good, up-and-coming players" but noted they were different.

"Wozniak has a little more aggressive game," she said. "From what I see, from my experience ... Wozniak goes for it a little bit more and tends to make a lot more unforced errors. Dubois is more of a consistent player. She moves really well. It's hard to make a point on her. You really have to earn it."

Jankovic took control of the match when she broke Dubois for a 4-2 lead in the first set. The Canadian was a victim of a bad break in that game when one of her shots was called out while she was leading 40-30. She challenged the call and the replay showed the ball was in. The point was played over and Jankovic won the point to bring the game to deuce. Dubois then double-faulted and Jankovic took advantage of the break point. She went on to break Dubois in the fifth and seventh games of the second set.

It was a successful week for Dubois despite the loss. She collected US$13,000 in prize money and the 60 points she earned will lift from her current No. 122 in the rankings to a position in the top 100.

A couple of teenagers made waves in the early matches but only one of them moved ahead.

Cibulkova, a 19-year-old from Slovakia, upset 12th seed Nadia Petrova of Russia, 7-6 (2), 6-2.

Michelle Larcher de Brito, the 15-year-old from Portugal, won lots of fans but fell short in her match against fourth-seeded Svetlana Kuznetsova of Russia.

"There were lots of Portuguese people and I think I made some new fans here," said Larcher de Brito, who had to win two qualifying matches to reach the main draw.

Kuznetsova, who is using the event to prepare for the Olympics after a three-week post-Wimbledon layoff, noted that the youngster was loose because she had nothing to lose. She said she used to get nervous against players like that but has overcome it now that she is one of the older players. She is all of 23.

Kuznetsova will meet fellow Russian Dinara Safina on Friday. The seventh-seeded Safina, who will be Kuznetsova's doubles partner at the Olympics, cruised past ninth-seeded Patty Schnyder of Switzerland, 6-2, 6-2.

Marion Bartoli, the 10th seed from France, upset sixth-seeded Anna Chakvetadze of Russia, 4-6, 7-5, 7-6 (4). Bartoli will face Ai Sugiyama in the quarter-finals.

Sugiyama received a pass when third-seeded Maria Sharapova withdrew late Wednesday night with a shoulder injury. An MRI yesterday revealed two tears in her shoulder and she withdrew from the Olympics and is extremely doubtful for the U.S. Open.

J. JANKOVIC/S. Dubois
6-3, 6-2

An interview with:
JELENA JANKOVIC

THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. You said yesterday Canadians would start to hate you if you beat Stephanie. Is it the case now?

JELENA JANKOVIC: I don't know. I took out two Canadians. Maybe the people will start to hate me now (laughter). In those two matches, the crowd was obviously against me. Playing a Canadian, a home-crowd favorite, it's not too easy to be in this kind of atmosphere.

But I tried my best. I really went out on the court, I wanted to be focused on myself, on my game, on what I have to do in order to win. I'm pleased, you know, how I handled the whole situation. Happy to get through this match.

Q. Can you compare the two Canadians, how they're the same and how they differ as players?

JELENA JANKOVIC: I think they have totally different games. Wozniak has a little more aggressive game. From what I see, from my experience, I played them this week, so I don't know how they play on a regular basis. Wozniak goes for it a little bit more and tends to make a lot more unforced errors. Dubois is more of a consistent player. She moves really well. It's hard to make a point on her. You really have to earn it.

But, you know, it's two different styles of games. But they're both really good players, young and up-and-coming.

Q. You didn't seem during the whole match at a hundred percent. How was your conditioning and how were you able to play after such a short rest?

JELENA JANKOVIC: I was doing fine. You know, I didn't want to get involved and start thinking, Oh, my God, I didn't have enough hours of sleep and I'm really tired. If I put all this negative thoughts in my head, in my mind, it's not so good. So I really tried to be positive. I go out there to play the match.

I was really out there. I didn't want to really let my opponent into the match and really fight out there really hard. So I was really out there, I wanted to play my game, I wanted to play aggressive. And when it was the important times, I really raised my level of game and won it in two sets.

Q. Were you bothered by your knee?

JELENA JANKOVIC: No, not at all. Sometimes I just -- somehow it just collapses a little bit here and there. Other than that, I don't have pain, which is the most important thing for me.

I mean, if I have pain, it would be not a great thing. You know, I wouldn't be able to play. I wouldn't like to risk my injury. But I'm fine. I have no pain. I'm just trying to get stronger on this knee. Little by little I'm getting better and moving better.

Q. This is from Wimbledon?

JELENA JANKOVIC: This is from the Wimbledon. I'm still recovering that. But it's getting better and better. I'm doing a lot of exercises for rehabilitation to get it stronger, get that knee in order again.

Q. Do you have any regrets about playing on the Monday? You hurt it on Saturday and went and played the other match after.

JELENA JANKOVIC: You know, I probably wouldn't have. It wouldn't make much of a difference. When you have a tear in your meniscus, there's not much you can do. A few hours maybe would make a little bit of a difference, but not really much. I was only upset that, you know, I was first match at 12:00. You know, I didn't have time to do other therapy, to put something, you know, so at least that I can play the match. I couldn't do the therapy. The doctor was arriving around that time, which was not really good for me. But it's okay. The Wimbledon is now past. We are here in Montréal playing in a tournament. I don't really want to think about that.

Q. Can you talk to us a bit about Cibulkova, your next opponent. She took out Dementieva. Today she took out Petrova.

JELENA JANKOVIC: I played against her in Roland Garros. She's a really tough opponent. She moves really well. She's defending well. She hits a lot of balls and really makes you play every point. She doesn't give you many presents. You really have to earn every point. I think I know how to play against her. But I really have to be out there and really have to, you know, play a hundred percent if I want to win. It will be a tough match.

Q. Dubois made you think out there today.

JELENA JANKOVIC: Yeah, obviously when you play an opponent which you didn't play before, you don't really know her patterns that well, you know, the way she plays, what are her best shots. I watched her against Kirilenko. I saw some of the things she liked to do. But it's, you know, different players. You have different tactics against different players. So it's hard to see what she does best, what she doesn't do best. But I really found, you know, my way around the court and was able to do it in a good way.

Q. She seemed really cool under pressure.

JELENA JANKOVIC: No, she has done really great. She has had a great tournament. She beat two good players. You know, it's unlucky that I had to play against her. It's not so nice for me to beat two Canadians. What can I do? The crowd will hate me, but that's just the luck of the draw. But I think they're both really great players. They have done quite well, so I think they have a good potential, a good future in front of them.

Q. What do you think about Sharapova today pulling out of the Olympics?

JELENA JANKOVIC: She pulled out of the Olympics, as well? It's really unfortunate because when it comes to injuries, it's very hard to deal with the things. When you're not ready, when you're having pain and you're suffering on the court, it's really hard for you to enjoy your tennis and go out there and really suffer the whole time, which is not a pleasant feeling. The best thing to do is to, you know, try to recover. It's very disappointing probably for her that she's not participating in Olympics, especially that Olympics are every four years and we have an opportunity to compete this year. So it's hard. But what can she do or somebody else who has a problem? Like me in Wimbledon, I wasn't able to continue in my tournament. I was suffering with my knee. This is bad luck. You just have to try to recover and get back on court soon.

Q. Playing with a torn meniscus, isn't that in your head?

JELENA JANKOVIC: It was in my head when I was playing in L.A. That's why I played a tournament before Montréal, before this big tournament, so that I kind of get a few matches in and kind of get the feel of how I'm doing, how I'm moving, get my confidence little by little. To be honest, when I was playing my first matches in L.A., I didn't feel confident at all in my movement. I was really afraid to run for some shots. I wasn't really out there. It was very hard for me. You know, little by little, every match I feel I'm improving, I'm gaining my confidence and I'm starting to move a lot better. I feel that I'm more faster on the court. The most important thing is, you know, make these little steps forward, keep improving, keep adding things to my game, get stronger. I'm really working hard of getting fit again. And I hope, you know, my time will come soon.

Q. Do you like to finish a match like that with a winner?

JELENA JANKOVIC: Yeah, it's always nice to finish a match with a winner. But anyhow, you know, as long as I win the last point, that's what matters (laughter).
