Re: Jelena Jankovic Cheering Thread - 2013 Season - Volume 14
I've been looking at Serena's career statistics and they're so ridiculous. One that stands out in particular is her 52-16 finals record (76.4%). I feel like if our fave had a brain the winning percentage (not the number of finals, we know our girl can't be bothered with longevity) be around the same
Sofia final : Jelena jankovic d. Meusburger 6-0 6-0 without losing a point
Honestly I believe Hamburger has bigger chance to win such final without losing a point than Jelena.
The Brainless Pusher
Ernests Gulbis, Marin Cilic, John Isner
Gilles Simon, Nicolas Almagro, Tommy Haas, Jack Sock
Kimiko Date Krumm, Tomas Berdych, Michail Youzhny, Daniel Brands
Elena Dementieva, Julia Cohen, Anna Chakvetadze
Okay finally getting around to uploading the picture of ME STANDING NEXT TO JELENA'S NAME ON THE OFFICIAL WIMBLEDON LADIES SINGLES BOARD OH MY GOD. I was so awe struck I could barely function. I marveled at this photo for hours. I CAN'T BELIEVE IT STILL. Enjoy fellow Jelena worshippers
EDIT: The picture is big, but oh well. Much better quality than the other picture I uploaded! I figured out how to not get it to turn sideways either. Excuse my smug look on my face, I was in awe. I was so happy I couldn't even think what to do. I'm sure you would've been in the same boat as me
Jankovic at her dramatic best will lead, throw the lead away, spot you a massive lead in the third set, decide to come back with some blazing retrieving and backhands, almost comeback, and then hand you the win, possibly with back to back double faults or netted forehands. You have no agency in this match. You might start to wonder if you have free will. Perhaps solipsism is true after all - is it Jankovic's world and you're simply allowed to live exist in it? It's basically existential waterboarding.
