Also don't forget that I watched Cirstea for like an hour practicing and, while her forehand is a thing of beauty, that's only when you're just watching the stroke and hearing the sound of racquet contact. When you actually look at where she's hitting, she was getting maybe half her shots into the court. Also her coach was having her practice dropshots and hers make Jelena's look like Radwanska's.

Draw is not that bad at all--Keys is struggling and off her game and her movement/return are never very good.

Puig is good but not THAT good.

Cirstea is tough, but so are plenty of R3 opponents. Win them all, Jeca.

I cheer on scrubs.

i'm not worried about keys at all, she has the type of game for JJ to absorb and hit plenty of BHDTL and FHDTL when does first order of play come out?

Empress Jelena Jankovic

I got JJ to sign a ball for me - no heart this time, but still awesome.

I also got to talk to her for a bit. Told her that I love her backhand and it turns out that she didn't know that her fans call her Empress.

You didn't happen to record your interview did you?

Jelena shoulda asked the US Open to change her name to just "Empress" a la "Sugarpova"

Despite not making many winners, she's still an agressive baseliner, and she doesn't only win matches by waiting the opponent's mistake, though she can do that at times also.

Hmm. Jelena was once referred to as 'Kraljica' (which loosely translates to Empress) by a Serbian news paper, if I remember correctly, and the translation of it stuck. It may be that she remembers the initial instance.

I cheer on scrubs.

Re: Jelena Jankovic Cheering Thread - 2013 Season - Volume 15

now that is a really tough draw. but as everybody said before, let's see what she's made of!
kleybanova in r2 is a big big scare for me, sorana will get her butt kicked by the empress (or, even better, earlier in r1 or r2 )

and yes, she's faking that doesn't know about the empress nick :so empressiv isn't it:

Re: Jelena Jankovic Cheering Thread - 2013 Season - Volume 15

Hmmm... play starts at 11 am... and she has 2 men's matches before her...

I have no class from 1:15 until 3 pm, then no class after 4:15... so maybe I am personally lucky, both will go 5 sets and last forever so I can watch all of her match!

But usually that won't happen unless I have nothing to do all day long so I'll just settle for the replay

And ESPN2 will for sure be showing some of it since Keys is American

Ajde Jelena
