Re: Jelena Jankovic Cheering Thread - 2014 Season - Volume 16

And is it just me or is the epithet Junkovic just disgusting? I wonder how those few Serena fans would feel if we called her Trashrena It's fine if a nickname is jokingly funny, but I think that crosses the line. I mean YELLena, Dramalena, those are all fine with me but when you use something that is just purely meant to be derogatory I think it's completely unneccessary.

And I'm so annoyed with some of them giving sweeping statements of us Jelena fans, like really? You think a Serena fan of all people would be sensitive to making sweeping generalizations over fanbases, especially since there are many JJ fans that are Serena fans as well.

Yeah, but I mean, if you have the balls to say something like that, you should suck it up!

Is LBV the one that calls Serena "mother"? Like what is that even supposed to mean? They've always been a known JJ hater unfortunately. It makes me sad when people dislike JJ, but there's only 2-3 players I dislike, so I don't go overboard with the comments that are disrespectful to the person and I know how their faves might look upon me.

It's so fucking easy to be a Serena fan I swear to God. I'm a fan and get annoyed when she loses, but to have a favorite as good as her, who wins 9 out of 10 tournaments she plays, like, it's very hard for me to understand her fans when she loses a match how weird they get.

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.

Some of them equate the success of a player with the worth of their fanbase, and it's quite annoying.

Can we stop calling Serena a cheater? She's one of the best tennis players ever. At worst, you can call it gamesmanship.

Yup. I think we in general need to stop blaming the opponent (unless its a true GOAT like Diyas) and realize it's Jelena that just sucks at tennis sometimes.

I never understood this mentally. It's like me being a fan of womens wheel chair tennis and my favorite is Esther Vergeer--do I go "YASSS" "THROW SHADE "650 MATCH WIN STREAK" and call all her opponents trash, etc? And then brag about how great she is and I'm supposed to be somehow part of that greatness? No. We have nothing to do with their success so why do we feel like we're part of it?

There's something more enjoyable for me rooting for an underdog, and for a player through a long journey of support.

I cheer on scrubs.

Jelena

Zero chance vs Serena. Head To Head now 4-9. Last time Jelena won was in 2010 ...

I love Jelena, but she`s always complaining. Stop it, and play better

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

They're not even sweeping statements because literally every bad thing said about JJ fans are wrong.

Junkovic is annoying but I really don't care for what they post.

I got a positive rep from one of them yesterday but it said 'your fave is a putze'.

The mind BOGGLES.

These people that write YASSS and DRAG HA all the time and refer to their favorite as MOTHER scare me.

You cannot say that, you will be deemed a racist and lynched for your crimes.

Although it is no secret some posters clearly have issues regarding race. Some of the things people write, I am of course disgusted that people have experiences of racism but to presume it is every Caucasian's fault is ridiculous.

I know what ya mean. I just wonder if a lot of the Rena fans are black/mixed TF posters, and they regard her so highly since she's arguably one of the best tennis players ever, and it's not as if there's been so many black tennis players as successful as her and Venus.

Some of those posters have been through a lot in terms of race, I remember one of the posters writing about getting mugged at a train station and stuff and was called all sorts of terrible things, so I am very sympathetic towards how they defensively behave when other posters try to call them out on reverse racism. I remember someone in JJ's forum calling me foolish for defending them, but I firmly support the black posters here. I don't think they "blame" white people, but they definitely are very aware of white privelege and will call anyone out on it.

I admire Serena a lot too because she is black, she has been through a lot of shit, have you read the youtube comments about her? Some of them are disgusting. And the IW incident at the age of 19, it's absolutely horrible to go through that at such a young age. I've always supported the boycott. I firmly believe that she isn't America's sweetheart because of her skin color. Sure, she's had some silly outbursts, but she's human, and I don't think those warrant the amount of hate she gets.

I don't think race is the issue, it's simply Serena is a fucking beast and a great champion, so it gets to their head. I hate to say that some of those posters live vicariously through this forum, but I really think some of them do.
