Re: Jelena JANKOVIC: Take a 1 year vacation!
Ken, good to hear from you again, trust you are well! Yeah, I kind of drifted away from JJ, & indeed WTF for a while. As I say, watching Sabine Lisicki (who I happen to think is very lovely!) has got me back into following the goings on. JJ got to No.1 on the back of her consistency, which was wonderful. All this bitching about being a "slamless No.1" is very tiresome, I have to say - something that is being aimed at Wozniacki at the moment of course. You get there mainly on your consistent level of performance. You just play, the ranking points system does the rest. You are not responsible for how the points & rankings pan out, other than by your performance on the court. You want to bitch about how the points are divvied out, write to the WTA!
Anyway, to see JJ currently sliding away is concerning. Can she recover? Of course she can, but is she 100% committed to doing so? I do wonder...maybe as I suggested, years of playing every tournament under the sun has caught up with her & she has lost that edge - burn out in other words.
