The Copenaghen's tournament there isn't anymore, I didn't see it in the list of the wta torunaments! So JJ will lost the points of the SF or she won't? I don't remember this rule

IMO she didn't bash her game.
she just said it the way it is.
In a way I admire that & she should say it the way she sees it.
Possibly it's her way also of saying, that over the last few years she was also having a hard look at herself, and possibly now she was fairly clear about herself, who she is, and what her own strengths and weaknesses are.
I actually see it as a form of strength.
I think that honesty with oneself is fundamentally the greatest strength that one can have.

In the end however you cut it being philosophical and cautious (although beneficial in short term), erodes you as a person.

Anyone have a video of the post-match speeches for both Serena and Jeca in charleston? What did they say about each other?

I wanna say I don't blame Serena for JJ's lost but it was a pretty bad move on Serena's side. I blame the Judge he/she should've see what happen and give the point to JJ so simple. But who would go against Serena!?

Neither should have gotten the point. Kader replayed the point as a let even though JJ missed the 1st serve, so the advantage was on JJ's side.

Give back 2011 Cincinatti to JJ

JELENA JANKOVIC: Explain.
Q. Yeah.
JELENA JANKOVIC: Yeah. She has a good backhand, I have a good backhand, but it's, I don't know, difficult to explain.
Q. Like how do you think your game's different than hers?
JELENA JANKOVIC: First of all, I wait -- I don't want to give you all the what I do. (Laughs).

Q. Give me something, Jelena, come on.
JELENA JANKOVIC: I mean what I want to do or how I play or what I wait for or what I play, I wait for my chances, and I like to hit my shots when I have the opportunities. As for her game, she's more of -- she waits. She waits for you to make the mistakes, and she doesn't really risk. She's very solid and she'll run the balls down and she has a very small amount of forced errors and a very small amount of winners and that's what her game is all about.
And I have -- when I have my shots, when I have my chances, I pull the trigger a lot more than she does, and I go -- and I hit the lines. I go for the corners, and she's quite solid. I mean she has -- she's one of those players who has a very small risk.
Like some other players, they go for broke. They go, they really go after their shots, and she's -- that's how she plays. Everyone is different, and we all have different styles and what we like, what we don't like. We have weaknesses and strengths. We'll see how it goes. It's going to be a tough match if we play against each other
So many words to say Carolineis a pusher?

You don't have to beat someone to bash her/his game for example - Gulbis and Nadal or Nadia and her words - Sara is boring.

S. Errani and N. Petrova played up to today 3 Games. Errani won 2 And IIRC (but as usually I can be wrong again) Nadia said this after she lost to Sara.

But it's not thread about Errani.

Jelena said truth. Caroline is a pusher but she was lucky enough to reach her 'peak' pushing form in Jelena's peak slumping period.

True. Hingis is an interesting woman though; she got offended when people compared her to Henin

Yup. She would be lucky to win 4 games against JJlena now.

She played a lot because she loves playing for her country and for this reason I can't understand why she won't play! She played a lot in the last weeks but she can't be tired, she has two weeks of recovery so I don't think that this is the reason. Well I don't think she will be happy when serbia will be in the world group II play offs...

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

I dont't understand. It will be played in Stuttgart, where her next tournament is, so she will be already there. Fed can be just like two practzice sesions for her, and she did say 1000 times she preferes playing than practicing.
I understand that, since 2001, she only skipped 2006, and played every tie, but this los can kick Serbia out ow WG1, so we need every help. She could have brought us a point or two. I expext girls to lose 0-5, or in best case 1-4
