Jelena just got bagelled again today

She was up 2-0 in first set of doubles and lost 6 games in a row

And then loses second 6-1. So many bakery products consumed today. Surely she ate lunch breakfast; she couldn't have been that hungry

Is she this stupid on purpose or is it all natural? I just can't with her sometimes...

Anyway, off to RG

*3-0 40-15 in cruise control.

then hit 3 UE's + DF to finish it off in a row and never recovered.

Halep was dead and burried at that point before finding her 2nd life, watching JJ selfdestruct .

Re: Jelena Jankovic Cheering Thread - 2013 Season - Volume 14

What a stupid loss and another horrible choke. Sooo disgusting. I'd like to know how many times she wasted mps in her career, it must be an epic stat, she's probably one of the leaders in that category. Btw, she didn't only waste an opportunity to get to another SF, she also stays #18 despite making a deep run. But, who knows, perhaps it's better to be seed #18. When you're ranked between #13 and #16, you have to play against a top 4 seed in R4.

I'd laugh but I can't since I'm still terribly pissed off.

Meh, as if it matters. She can beat anyone except Sharapova and Baby Anci, and she can lose/choke to anyone as we have just witnessed. So, the only important thing is that she avoids the above mentioned two for as long as she can. OTOH, she can beat NO ONE half-decent if she plays this cowardly puffball-pushing game she played for the most part yesterday and today.

You're so right

And people getting ahead of themselves and saying stuff about round of 16 at RG when she just lost to Scheepers and Halep in succession

A R4 at RG would be wonders, that's what I hope for. If she goes beyond that, I'll be ecstatic no matter the result (except if she blows a huge lead/chokes to death like she did today.)

SF of Miami, F of Charleston, QF of Rome... She reached the 3rd round in both previous slams. If there's any moment to expect her to go one step further, it's in Paris. It's her best surface and she's finally playing better. I'm not saying she should reach SF of Wimbledon. But R4/QF of RG is doable with a nice draw.

Somehow I'm not sure if she's able to play something more than puffball-pushing game

I have serious doubts about her footwork. She usually can't hit clean winner/shot because (it's my opinion) she is either too early or too late and she just misses the balls. Of course she can hit the ball back but in not the way she should/can.

And now I'm serious about this.

Oh it's totally doable. I expect a R4 showing from JJ (depending on the draw... it'd have to be a horrific draw for me not to expect her to make R4) but I try not to think about that after such a bad loss

Re: Jelena Jankovic Cheering Thread - 2013 Season - Volume 14

I slightly calmed down after that awful 2 sets. She was so afraid to play to just win. Halep played solid. And that's it JJ had the chance to destroy her and she didn't take it. I hope she takes some lessons from it. Hoping for a good draw in RG so she can star! <3

With JJ til the end!
