Re: Jelena Jankovic News and Articles Thread, vol 2

Jelena's gonna be n°1, Jelena's gonna be n°1!!!
And no one will take that away from us ^^
Eheh

No but, we shouldnt give a f**k about those people saying she doesnt deserve it. This Grand Slam thing is stupid.
Kim became n°1 without any GS win, Amélie too.
And, tennis is not only about GS, if Jelena becomes n°1 it is because she's the one with the biggest amount of points full stop ^^

More about the movie with JJ...
http://www.blic.co.yu/zabava.php?id=51498

Some quotes from the director Tanja Brzakovic:
Quote:
Jelena is a fantastic actress

- The idea for filming this movie about JJ came from the sheer curiosity. First of all, I was fascinated by her fighting spirit. Even when it looks that the match is lost, she never gives up and tries to reverse the score to her own advantage. Precisely that strength to fight inspired me to try and find out what the real fighters are made of.

The director talks about how difficult it was to make the first contact with the great tennis player. She wrote a letter to the tennis player and her mother and with it she tried to convince them about the need to film a movie about Jelena and what she wants to achieve by filming it. After a few months of waiting the phone rang - Jelena and her family were very interested to meet with Tanja and see how it goes.

Tanja says that the biggest part of the movie was shot in Berlin this year. Many other famous tennis players are in it as well: Justine Henin, Svetlana Kuznetsova...

- Many of them we filmed during players' dinner party or during press conferences, but also during their trainings and matches with Jelena. The movie is all about Jelena. Just kidding, well, not really. With the filming techniques I tried to analyze Jelena and show all the aspects of her personality. She is a complex and exciting person and also very unconventional. We're hoping our movie will be the same. She's a great actress and everything was spontaneous, natural and humorous. I bet that many people imagine the lives of tennis players as fairy-tales, but the truth is it's much more complex, much more cruel. Jelena is not shy to show us even that part of their lives.
The movie premiere should be in October.

I'm so bitter that I'll probably never get to see it. It sounds like it has the potential to be really interesting.

JELENAS WORLD, synopsis

Young, beautiful girl wakes up in one hotel room, in some exotic corner of our planet. After she gets up, dresses herself, washes her teeth, as any other twenty-two-year-old- girl would do, any similarity between this girl and regular twenty-two-year-old- girl disappears.

This girl is the third best world tennis player and today starts the new tennis-tournament.

She has very strict schedule to follow: breakfast, training, signing autographs, massage, consultations , relaxing and the first match. Always on her side she has her mother (family) and couple important associates. Sponsors, tournament organizations’, fans, they all want something from her. Even this film-crew that fallows her all around.

What Jelena wants is to become the number 1. This dream she shares with a whole bunch of other girls, but she is the one of the couple chosen ones that could see it come true. Fighting her way to that goal, she is not alone. Behind her is an army of fans from Serbia and all over the world, young ones and old ones, that need and believe in Jelena’s success. They identify themselves with this always smiling, eccentric, fighter- girl and experience every her success as their own.

But Jelena is not a super- hero. She has ups and downs, knows success, but also defeats, she cries when she is sad and smiles when she is happy; she doesn’t fear showing herself and her feelings as they really are. And that makes her super- idol.

Whit this movie all sport, tennis and Jelena fans will have a chance to dive deep into the world of professional tennis and he is never gone be same for them again, because they will be led through it by Jelena Jankovic herself.
There are screencaps on the site, too.

Minimalistic, but meaningful one-word quote from Jelena.

http://mvn.com/tennis/2008/07/21/ser...ves-in-carson/

Quote:
Interestingly, while Serena is familiar with the Gimelstob incident – she knows him well and played doubles with him on the Washington Kastles the week after Wimbledon, Jelena Jankovic and Patty Schnyder didn’t know anything about it when I asked them. Not only that, but they hadn’t heard any talk about it in the locker room.

Jelena has also been asked to pose for the Serbian version of Playboy and turned them down, but fellow Serb Janko Tipsarevic agreed to an interview, fully clothed. And he used the opportunity to trash the women’s game. He said that 99% of the male tennis players “can’t stand women’s tennis” and he criticized the women for not being able to think strategically on court as well as the male players.

Jelena had heard about those comments, he’s a friend of hers after all, and she called them “mean.” Unnecessary and incorrect might also be a good description. Hopefully he’ll turn up at the ATP event in Los Angeles and I can throw a few question his way too.
