Re: Jelena Jankovic Cheering Thread - 2013 Season - Volume 16

Overall, this result is good start for Jeca. Top 10 win, pushing world #3 to tight third.

The reason I was upset isn't because this result isn't GOOD, but because it's not great. And I guess I haven't learned to taper my expectations for her.

Oh well, Sydney/AO double crown next!

I cheer on scrubs.

did JJ hold any leads in the 2nd and 3rd set?

Give back 2011 Cincinatti to JJ

Jelena

Very annoying loss, 6-1 3-6 4-6. Jelena won 2 points more. Azarenka, piss off !

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck

Give back 2011 Cincinatti to JJ

Re: Jelena Jankovic Cheering Thread - 2013 Season - Volume 16

I think JJ should play Sydney... I don't think she will win it since her mentality in latter stages of tournies still hasn't improved a whole bunch, and at worst she'll lose to Makarova... a player who does well on the courts of Australia. BUT, Jelena shouldn't lose this one given her form and it's Ekat's 1st match of 2014. She should have the upper hand.

I'm guessing if she makes it past Makarova she will lose to most likely Kerber in QF.

Re: Jelena Jankovic Cheering Thread - 2013 Season - Volume 16

I think JJ SF here is quite reachable

Kerber may lose to Domi as she did last year...

JJ - ANA - AGA - MARIA

How mad will you be if Jelena doesn't win any tournaments this season?

If she doesn't win at least 1, then

People in the main draw thread actually picking JaJa to take the title... I want to believe

Re: Jelena Jankovic Cheering Thread - 2013 Season - Volume 16

IDK I mean if she make QF-SF at all the major and make couple finals here and there at couple event then I won't get too mad about her season but I hoping she can win title and also make deep run at all the slam

She should withdraw, IMO.

Re: Jelena Jankovic Cheering Thread - 2013 Season - Volume 16

I just figured out that I am going to set up a trip to go to Charleston in May!! I'm so excited!!

Jelena has already committed to the tournament. I can only go to qualies, and MAYBE the first day of R1 and that's it, but hell, I won't pass up this opportunity.

Maybe I can see Jelena out on the practice courts? I'm sure I will since it'll be so close to the main draw days. If I do meet her I hope I don't tense up with nerves and look like a fool

Does the Sydney event have to be played. Why don't they just give JJ the trophy. Cut the stupid formalities called playing matches.

Anything less than a title and she should probably just pack her bags and retire.
