Re: Jelena Jankovic Cheering Thread - 2013 Season - Volume 13

oh boy, thee match of all shitfesters will finally happen in r3. they are obviously both useless, but have no doubt, anci will dismantle jeja to her elementary particles

It's the only logical explanation for the crapfest my eyes saw for two hours.

And then, she let her lazy side win, she completely gave up on thinking on court and decided to take the seemingly easy route of a quasi-ballbasher which has led her to where she is now. i'll never understand why she was never able to combine her newly found aggression with using her brain.
This is a great assessment of her evolution in tennis and one I subscribe to.

Koehler's FH was hitting quite a few winners and JJ was not targeting BH as she should have (but even her BH was not so bad--at least, it didnt break down, but didnt gain her anything either). Decent first serve the first set, or two, as well.

I cheer on scrubs.

Just heard the commentator in Australia say JJ and Ana are scheduled for 2nd on Hisense Arena after Watson vs Radwanska.

Re: Jelena Jankovic Cheering Thread - 2013 Season - Volume 13

Just checked the schedule.

I think it's so stupid that a match up between two former world No. 1's from the same country gets a match on HISENSE in the DAY while kerber vs an unknown gets RLA? Wtf??

I'm so mad. Those two and the audience deserve RLA. This match would've been the 2nd most exciting matchup other than Vee/Masha

I explain it to U! America and China(maybe even Germany) are big important countries and it's about as* kissing and nothing more.

But I know the Serbian fans will make chaos in the Hisense Arena and I can't wait for it to happen!

It would even be better if Agniezska looses before! XD

I will go mad if Ana kicks her ass! Ana wining is more or less oKay but Ana destroying JJ would be devastating!

That was beautiful as well. What I don't get is why she wasn't able (or willing) to combine those two styles? I mean, in 2006/07 she showed she could master technique well enough to compensate for her lack of power and serve. She never learnt how to hit drop-shots but her lobs were SICK. Then, in 2008, she improved her serve and started playing more aggressively terrorising everyone with that BH, and even had a decent FH for a while, but she completely gave up on the variety of the previous seasons. I mean, why?? Why couldn't she incorporate it in her new, more aggressive game? That combined game would have been a thing of beauty!

I won't be able to watch the Ana match. could be a blessing in disguise I guess? But I am so devestated. I'm stuck in a TVless/internetless apartment because everything is flooded over here.

Ah damn, I hoped it would be the first match at least so that I can still have a relatively normal sleep

Why are you (almost) all so sure that JJ will lose to Anci? They both play crappy, but any of them can win.
