I have and it was odd! :lol:

I met her in Warsaw in the 1st day of qualifying. She went to watch some matches. I stood behind her as she was watching match between Melinda Czink and Tatjana Malek. I wanted to get an autograph from her but I didn't want to be rude and I wanted her to turn first instead of disturbing her and asking. Melinda choked badly from 5-2 in the 3rd set (she had MPs there) - match went into the TB when she wasted sthg like 6-1 lead but finally won :lol: Jelena watched it till the end with some other girl and her brother Marco. They talked in Serbian... it's pretty much understandable for us Poles so I got that she laughed at how Melinda was getting tight and couldn't close it out. :lol: :o I know it was mean but I thought to myself - 'Uhm... you are not that bad yourself at choking and losing winnable matches :tape: ' Anyway when it finally ended she turned around and looked straight at me. She sure knew that I stood about 30 minutes with a marker and copybook :lol: I asked if she can sign up and she reached for my marker... but it was dry, because I took of the end of it before on some SP - thinking it will end on it :lol: :o Jelena looked at me and asked 'Have you got another pen?' I said I don't but it's ok... so she signed up although it doesn't look that distinct. :lol: But she wrote a little heart for me :nerner: :lol: :D I said that I wish her all the best in her 1st round match vs Czaky (which she of course lost being in the driving seat most of the time in the 1st set :mad: :fiery: ). She thanked and went away :) I hope to meet her next year with a new pen and ask if she remembers me and can ask sign up again :haha:

Btw for those you met her. I always thought she was way taller... :confused: It looks on TV as she is taller than Ana where in fact Ana seemed way taller to me :shrug:

I met her at Birmingham this year - my first tournie.
I went primarily to see Daniela, but she withdrew..
I was standing by the side gate to the practice courts, waiting to see Ai (and ask if she knew where Dani was), and Jelena was on the court nearest me. A ball landed next to me, so I picked it up and threw it to Jelena. She seemed to appreciate it, so I stayed for a while, and picked up some more.
I saw her again, later, watching the matches on courts 2 & 3, but didn't see her leave.
I nearly got a photo of her watching, but some youngsters stood up between me and her, blocking my view.

I met her at the Zurich Open in 2006 and we basically only talked about tennis. She had just lost a match to Sveta, but there were some really bad calls, so we were talking badly about the linesmen.
It was like that:

S: Hey Jelena, what a great match! I'm so sorry that you lost :/
JJ: I'm telling you they were cheating me!!! The line judges were cheating all the time.
S: Well, yeah there were some ridiculous calls, but I'm telling you this was by far the best match this week. You really played well. Plus you dont wanna know how bad the calls in Hingis' matches have been :smiiiile:.
Puts on her BIG SMILE JJ: Thanks, I'm happy that you liked the match. (doesnt say anything about Marti)
S: Uhm, could I have an autograph :angel:?
JJ: Sure :) *signing*
S nearly drops down dead trying to say: ThaA AN N N N ks a L OO OOOO OT...
From afar : Sneki: *something in Serbian*
JJ: OK, gotta go do some press, my mom's waiting.
S: Alright, I hope you will come back next year and win it.
JJ smiles says i will and bye and goes to Sneki...

isn't that the calculation of the number of matches that JJ's played minus the number of times she won an argument with a lines judge?

Ian Aberdon
Dec 17th, 2007, 08:10 PM
:haha: or a formula to work how just HOW many kisses JJ has given JM!!!

I've never met her. I'd like to!! First week of Wimbledon this year I spent a while spying on her though!! I was in the standing bit on Court 2 watching Gonzalez win his 2nd round match after throwing many wobblies at the umpire and hitting a ball or 2 out of court (you know, his usual style!) Jelena was leaning over the balcony of the players restaurant watching because she was due out next on court and me and my mate weren't actually watching the match, just seeing who else we could spot!! Unfortunately I didn't stay to watch her match. I can't remember why come to think of it, but I wish I had!! Next year I plan on choosing which days to go purely based on JJ's schedule! :lol: I only went in the first week this year, I plan on stalking the Mixed Doubles comp in week 2 next summer... ;)

heh - me too Cat... I would really just like to watch her play for real... yes meeting her would be a bonus too, but for the mean time I'll settle for watching her.

Come ON in the ballot!

i got let into the players area after everyone had left the stadium, JJ was in a pretty bad mood cause the WTA representatives were making her sign all these papers and what not cause she had to retire from the match.. she turned round and saw me with my lame go jelena sign and smiled.. she recognized me from the crowd (cause i was the only one with a green go jelena sign out there haha). she was so nice i got to talk to her a little and she signed a newspaper article for me and i got a picture with her

I met her and Sneki here in Auckland last year. They are both awesome! :hearts:Sneki was giving us (the small group of noisy Serbs) nine tickets every day for Jelena's matches (they were getting them from the organizers). :worship: Jelena is lovely and so down to earth, we gave her few presents after she won the title. She was such a joy to watch and talk to! :angel:

met her twice here in qatar total open- 2006, 2007

during start of 2006 when jelena was having this 1st round losses winning streak :lol: i think she lost to schruff during the first rnd :rolleyes: she wasn't that known to other people yet so i was the only fan who went to her :bounce: at that time she was going to the practice courts w/ her bro marco then i went near her & asked for an autograph & picture :D then she went to practice :p

in 2007 just asked for her autograph again:p but this time it was different since there were a lot more fans who came near her :)
