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

Happy for the doubles win

I'm frustrated with Jj too, it's like the tennis gods were asking her to make the qf and top 10 by taking out every relevant name in the quarter for her : hysteric: and those comments are wtf but understandable for me... Se must be really disappointed and bitter. Onto the USO, but first the doubles title here

But I will support her forever

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

Just to clear out, Jelena's problem with grass only comes at Wimbledon, because she never seems to enjoy playing in London. She's reached a couple of Birmy finals, won one of them against a Wimbly champ and also has a final in Den Bosch. I don't say that it's her surface, I just want to emphasize that London is her problem. Was a mixed doubles champ, but that was a moment of glory.

No, her brain is her problem.

I still sometimes forget she is a slam winner at Wimbledon

She gave so many kisses in 2007

It's basically existential waterboarding.

Anyway, she should play Palermo. Maybe Italian clay would restore her brain's functions.

And I doubt if she's able to win something big in USA before Canadian Open.

JJ will win the US Open. Why anyone would even waste time contesting Wimbledon MM is beyond me. Sharapova and Azarenka were wise enough to bail as soon as they could. How many points does the singles champion get? 280? Not even worth it imo.

We don't know whether JJ will win the US Open or not. It depends on whether it's played on real or fake hardcourt.

Although now that she doesn't have to peak for the Dallas Slam, she should have a better shot even if it's played on fake hardcourt.

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

Her next tournament should be Mercury Open in about 4 weeks. And I like she is going to rest some time she needs it. She overplayed it again. I'm sure she would beat Maria if she didn't play that much doubles etc.

And it's so awful/painful to watch the tournament continue epsecially her draw with Kvitova playing currently like crap. She could've reached finals with a semi win against Marion. Can U believe Marion will play Finals again!?

I know grass doesn't suit her well but she played sometimes solid tennis on that surface. Remember Venus,Myskina,the destruction of Alona! On Wedenesday her serve was crap and her FH was on preschool level just the usual issues! She should start play double handed FH like Marion or like Bozoljac BH both side techncic wise!

Rather than ask on GM and get potentially slaughtered for my lack of know-how please come some of my lovely fellow Jankobitches explain what credits are? And if they're at all useful for anything, can I redeem them to win a prize or something?
