Leaving Madrid being force fed a bagel

Well, something tells me JJ's confidence is back on the decline...

It's basically existential waterboarding.

I wonder what's happened to her. At first, I honestly thought she tanked to avoid playing Ana again, but now I don't think so anymore. Who the hell tanks in 3 long sets, and it's never been Jelena's style anyway, she's always been ready and willing to get slaughtered no matter if it's Henin, Sharapova or merely Ana or Bartoli. And getting such a hard beating in doubles is also out of character.

I've "Liked" a few pages on Facebook dealing with Jelena and someone posted of photo of her in Madrid with some weird taping thing on her right knee/thigh area

I hope it's just precaution or something because losing in 3 sets to Scheepers of all people, and then getting bagelled in a doubles match just screams injury to me. Maybe it happened at the end of the first set in singles? I'll try to find the photo and post it here to see what everyone else thinks (if they haven't seen it already).

It's WTA, random losses happen to every player. Even Undefeatarenka lost today, so I'm not taking much from the Schweppes loss. Rome is her backyard anyway. If she doesn't perform well there, then I would be worried.

But Djokovic lost early in Madrid in 3 sets as well, so I'm taking solace in that.

It looks like she has a problem with her knee.

Ugh I cannot find the picture of the tape thing she was wearing, but it wasn't even strapping. It was this weird V shaped looking thing white band thing. It didn't look too serious, so maybe it's a good thing she left Madrid early so she can try to heal it before playing Rome where she's always had better results.

There is a very short bit in today's newspapers about it, she says she feels pain in her knee and can't play at 100%.

I had to google it first time too. We're old, tired and we suck at cool internet abbreviations.
