JJ could've gotten a much tougher R2 opponent. Like Davis. She's going to be top 32 soon I can feel it...

Lepchenko, another one that hits like a man. Or is that Shvedova? Ana? Maria?

I cheer on scrubs.

Maybe I don't like Lepchenko cos her grunt sounds like MJMS.

Destroy her pls.

JJ - ANA - AGA - MARIA

Lepchenko had her break out year 2 years ago. Played either extreme scrubs, or players who were shite (JJ and Fran in RG 2012) and made like 1 QF b/c she was defending 0 points in almost every event. Just shows you how easy it is to make top 20

I'm expecting a shitfest, but pray that Jelena will thrash her.

When JJ lost to Lepchenko she was at her absolute worst, while Lepchenko was making a breakthrough. She shouldn't lose now unless she loses her mind, really.

Of course she won't lose. This is the new Jelena who will have the best year in her career.

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

So far this season, I have been a pessimist for every match, operating under the idea if you expect less the more you DO get the better it will feel.
That being said, excluding an injury, JJ will not lose to VL. The thing I notice about VL is she isn't the best hard courter. I think most of her really good upsets have come on clay, grass, or indoors. If they were playing on clay, I'd give VL a 30/70 shot. But JJ will handle her on this surface. It might go three, but JJ will win!

JJ back into the top 10 in 2017!!!
It could happen...

I'm glad JJ is playing a lefty. Makes her alert from the get go since every lefty is a bit tricky. Meusburger was a good test for IW courts since she's a lesser version of Wozniacki really, so she had to deal with hitting extra shots.

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

So far this year she's adapted to the courts well to get good results. Well, you can argue her form in Aussie Open wasn't the greatest, but the courts are weird so who knows.

She adapted to the quick courts of Doha, the even quicker courts of Dubai (beating Safarova in straights on a fast court can't be easy) and played with controlled aggression on the courts of IW, which is what helped her win it in 2010.

I think she'll do well on clay! I think she'll defend Bogota, and do well in all the events (please make the QF of Madrid ) but I don't see her winning any other clay title, unless the Charleston draw falls apart.

She'll win Roland Garros defeating Venus, Serena, Sharapova, Azarenka, and Diyas in the finals
