Jelena's best quotes

Guys, it's finally time to have a serious thread.
The goat is nice enough to grant us memorable interviews and lately she's been on fire. So here you can post la crème de la crème live from JJ's brain and hopefully little by little we'll make a memoir and send it to her.

Recent ones, I'll put older ones later.
Quote:
JELENA JANKOVIC: There are so many great players, and, to be honest, I'm watching only men's tennis on TV. I don't really watch too much women's.

That's why many times when I play against them, you know, many times I don't know my opponent. Like today, I didn't know who I was playing,and I didn't know that was Gajdosova and her name was Groth, you know?

Quote:
Q. You're going to go in to face an Australian player, Jarmila Groth. You've played her three times before.

JELENA JANKOVIC: Who?

Q. Jarmila Groth?

JELENA JANKOVIC: Who is that?

Q. An Australian.

JELENA JANKOVIC: Is that Gajdosova?
Quote:
Q. Could you mention three players that you like in the draw for this tournament?
JELENA JANKOVIC: In the men's?
Quote:
Q. Which is your favorite player in the man draw?
JELENA JANKOVIC: Of woman?
Quote:
Q. In your words, what happened out there? Was she just playing too well?
JELENA JANKOVIC: What was the question?

Re: Jelena's best quotes

Jelena talks about her turn of luck in 2007:
Quote:
"Since then I started to get better and better, and who knows, but if I didn't make it to the quarterfinals, if I didn't win a few matches in Rome, maybe I wouldn't be here right now, maybe I would be, you know, who knows, in my university, with thousands of books, reading, becoming a genius (laugh)."

Jelena on how tough for her was that knee injury at Wimbledon:

Quote:
"I couldn't wear heels, it was frustrating but it's healing quite fast and I'm happy."

Re: Jelena's best quotes



Quote:
Q. Justine is the only player who beat you on clay this year. You said several times you don't like to be in the same part of the draw. So are you expecting Serena to win?

JELENA JANKOVIC: Is she winning?

Q. Losing.

JELENA JANKOVIC: Who? Serena win?

Q. No, she's down a break.

Re: Jelena's best quotes

Classic confused Jelena:

Quote:
Q. Are you playing doubles with Ana at the Olympics?

JELENA JANKOVIC: I don't know. I don't think so. I'm not sure. We don't really play doubles. Especially with injuries I've been having, I'm barely playing singles. So I don't know if I could manage to play singles and doubles.

Q. If you're not that healthy in singles, two excellent players, a chance for a gold medal in doubles.

JELENA JANKOVIC: I don't know. We'll see when the time comes over there.

Q. The entries are in now.

JELENA JANKOVIC: I don't think we are playing then. I'm not sure, I guess.

Re: Jelena's best quotes

How can we forget

Quote:
Q. Have you thought about your next round opponent?

JELENA JANKOVIC: Who am I playing? I don't even know who yet.

Q. Thai girl.

JELENA JANKOVIC: Tiger?

Q. Tanasugarn.

JELENA JANKOVIC: I was thinking, Tiger Woods (laughter)? I was like, are we playing golf on grass or what (laughter)? Tanasugarn.

Re: Jelena's best quotes

This is not Jelena's quote but it has to be posted here.

Sofia Arvidsson on Jelena:

Quote:
Outside the court, I am not, however, equally impressed by her. I had booked a massage after the game clock 17.30, when I get there, my name is gone. Then Jelena without saying anything to me removed my name and wrote her own.

Re: Jelena's best quotes

This girl is a gem!
Quote:
"I love when I have a lot of supporters. They were asking, What am I talking to the crowd? They go like, Jelena, we love your smile. I'm like, But, yeah, it doesn't help me return her serve (laughter). It's always funny. It's quite entertaining."
