Re: Rate Jelena's 2007 season !!

I decided to give her 5- !

Even thought she sucked in Europe (and Thailand :rolleyes ) last month, she still had an amazing year, won 4 titles ( 2 tier I ) and won aces award.
Sadly, I think 2007 will be Jelena's golden year, lets hope I am wrong !!

Re: Rate Jelena's 2007 season !!

I'm hyperactive at the moment
I give her a 4+ for outstanding results though she should have won more in some finals. I tought she was ready for a slam at Wimby, even she said she expected to win it. I think grass suits her game a lot because the ball stays low, and she is capable of being low when she's fully fit. So that's a minus for me - grand slam results...

Re: Rate Jelena's 2007 season !!

Great start, fell away at the end through burn out. But 5 titles was it? No. 3 in the world.

Worth a 4, cause I luv her!

Re: Rate Jelena's 2007 season !!

Definitely a very good "4", but with some space left for improvement....improvement that she will hopefully have in 2008.

Jelena Jankovic, Angelique Kerber, Maria Sharapova, Vika Azarenka

Re: Rate Jelena's 2007 season !!

no grand slam trophies or finals so it's hard to give her a 5. hopefully next year will be

Re: Rate Jelena's 2007 season !!

I go for a 4... even allowing for the MxD Slam - I was reading through all the initial stuff in the News & Articles thread and even at around AO/RG she was saying she had played a lot of matches and was feeling tired... and that's at the start of the year.

Highlight for me was just watching having so much fun at Wimbledon. We've not really seen those smiles of late...

Re: Rate Jelena's 2007 season !!

I said 3. The really great stuff (Wimbledon mixed, 4 titles, RG semi) is balanced out by the bad (Post USO crappiness, inability to beat Justine, general insane scheduling) so I went for the middle score!

maria sharapova - jelena jankovic

Re: Rate Jelena's 2007 season !!

I'd go for a 3, too. Some great stuff and some really terrible stuff. Plus, the really terrible stuff was through her own fault with all the overscheduling, so no sympathy in the ratings from me.

Re: Rate Jelena's 2007 season !!

Since she played so much tournaments, and got to No 3 position, and won 4 tournaments, and since she had crapy year ending, and didn't beat Justine, and played 3. and 4. round at two biggies...it's a solid 4, going to 5 in 2007.!

P.S. Jelena is this evening signing contract with Whirpool in Belgrade, and in 2008. she will donate some money for every ace

Re: Rate Jelena's 2007 season !!

I decided to give her a 5! Why? Well, the great start, and the amazing clay-court season, with the Rome title being the best moment. Plus the SF at the french beating Venus on the way. After Wimbledon she was already tired, so it doesn't count.

Merci Justine!


Agnieszka Radwanska - Beautifull style, tons of talent and variety, and the cutest smile on tour.

Re: Rate Jelena's 2007 season !!

I depends on to what you compare it. When you compare her with JuJu I would give her a 3. When you compare her with what she was able to achive, I would give her a 4. And when you look for the future this may have been here all time career high, so a 5 would be right.

Well...all ace makers said NO to Whirpool, and Jelena said "Well ok...since I don't make much of those "
