(I hope Brad won't kill me for this). Radwanska deserves more credit for her excellent movement and anticipation rather than her game.
idc really I never thought Aga would ever get to #2 in the world when I first supported her anyways

If she doesn't try to dropshot, she'll probably beat her tomorrow, Karolina hit 30+ UEs without going for anything yesterday.

True.

I remember their match in Istanbul. Radwanska played two drop shots that landed on her own side of the court and Woz played 5 or something and all of them were effective She shouldn't really play drop shots anymore, at least not against the top players.

Re: Jelena Jankovic Cheering Thread - - Volume 13

I don't know how people can compare Hingis to Henin or Caro, that like Compare Venus to Errani But as a fan of both I would agree Radwanska & Wozniacki are different in alot ways like Radwanska will go for more and has alot nets skill like LoLex said, Caro on the other hand would push but I will say she is able too do more as well and go for her shot and make winners as well for example her match when she play Pennetta at Doha last year.

S. Williams (21) ♦ V. Williams (7) ♦ Vika (2) ♦ Kvitová (2) ♦ Kerber (1) ♦ Muguruza (1) ♦ Ivanovic (1) ♦
C. Wozniacki ♦ A. Radwanska ♦ S. Halep ♦ B. Bencic ♦ S. Stephens ♦ M. Keys ♦ Domi Cibulkova ♦ G. Bouchard ♦ L. Robson ♦ N. Osaka ♦ J. Ostapenko ♦ A. Konjuh ♦ D. Vekic ♦ M. Puig ♦ V. Duval ♦ T. Townsend ♦ L. Chirico ♦ F. Abanda ♦ S. Samir ♦ F. Stollár ♦ T. Andrianjafitrimo

Jelena threads sitting atop GM. Climbing back into the top 20 and still the center of attention

Re: Jelena Jankovic Cheering Thread - - Volume 13

Guys, I now realise that Jelena's never played this year the likes of Azarenka, Sharapova etc. as top tennis players. Whenever she reaches a further stage of some tournament, she always gets Radwanska, Wozniacki...
For example, she played Stosur in Dubai and won.

She lost to Azarenka in Sidney, I think.

She did lose to her in Sydney, that was a pathetic match. Well, at least we all know that Azarenka was a GOAT back then... And she also played Serena at London 2012, but there's the same GOAT situation.

Re: Jelena Jankovic Cheering Thread - - Volume 13

Jelena had her best results and played her best tennis in 2008

Aus Open SF
French Open SF
Wimbledon R4
US Open F

Miami Final. Won Rome, Beijing, Stuttgart and Moscow. And reached #1 in August 2008

Only 1 Grand Slam QF since 2008 Bulking up was her worst decision

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck

Nope. Her worst decision was brain transplantation

I mean, she still can play tennis. She still has incredible body. She still has amazing fitness. She still has talent. But her tennis became totally robotic and she looks totally unnatural when she plays tennis. There is no confidence in her game. Sometimes she looks like newbie who has never played tennis. She lost glitter.

I think Jelena is on a good road, losing to Radwanska at this Aga Pacific Open is not really shameful. I think she enjoys playing tennis and competing again. Let's see her in Beijing.
