Also - can anyone recommend a good program freebie to split up MP4 files... I'm guessing that over an hour of JJ and Nole is going to blitz Mega Upload's freebie limit?

I think I'm covered for conversion from VOB (I hope) to MP4... if the burned version is anything else, then I am royally screwed!

When I upload video files I may just post them on different sites. i.e. put them on megaupload, rapidshare, and sendspace. That way people don't have to worry about their downloading getting "throttled" by those sites if they just get one from each.

oh god i was getting heaps annoyed when i was watching doubles... just when she was talking about croats i was like hmm... wat the hell is she going on about and then the other comentator was like they're serbian and then i realized she was talking about nole and jeca.. then she was like croats, serbians.. theyre all the same. i was like :rolleyes: and she kept on dissing jj like how she moves back everytime she hits the ball.. she said it literally over 10 times within like 5 minutes i was like oh jeez shush already we know! And she kept on doubting jelena's injury.. during her match against golovin navratilova said "jankovic can be quite the drama queen... but then again all serbs are".. hmmmm

but good job to nole and jj anyways haha it was an entertaining final

I was going to post about that. She pissed me off so much, and she kinda ruined the coverage for me. We know that's a flaw in JJ's game, but she seriously mentioned it after each point :rolleyes:

Thanks for all the vids :kiss:

OK - so progress report - I now have a chunky monkey of an MP4 file - but I think it is under Megaupload's limits so I'll upload it tomorrow as it's showing that it's gonna take HOURS!!!

Oh man - you'll end up putting a boot through your screen... I mean - I KNOW JJ's double's tactics are woeful... but she doesn't have to gripe about it every BUT EVERY frickin' point...

And I thought her comments about Serbs and Croats was in particularly poor taste, personally! You can almost hear how embarrased the Aussie commentators were...

Novak imitating JJ...it's on serbian

- Hi Jelena. You are in black today
Jelena: Yes, I am in an old collection. I am joking.
- I am in the new collection! Nole...
Novak: I have the newest collection of fashion house Mona
Jelena: I created it for him
Novak: Of course, it was created by Jelena Jankovic. And I am proudly wearing it tonight.

Merci! I don't usually like watching matches JJ loses, but I'll make an exception!! Is her match against Tati floating about anywhere?

RFS
Jan 9th, 2008, 04:47 PM
Well I'm watching back the live coverage from this morning... lots of concern about the crowd behaviour and whether that's something that will maybe start to count against JJ... even she's asked the umpire to have a word... I really want to see her presser - I'm sure she'll be asked about that

Ian Aberdon
Jan 9th, 2008, 05:07 PM
Was this her fans that were causing concern (not seen video yet).

RFS
Jan 9th, 2008, 05:11 PM
yeah - just v boisterous at the start and booing Vaidisova and applauding her faults. The faces on the Aussie crowd kinda said it all and Chris Bradnam/Jo Durie were commenting that it could actually turn a crowd against JJ. In the end JJ herself - early in the set asked the umpire to say something...

They seemed to have settled down - I'm about half way through the3 first set.

Is there a demand for the match with English commentary?

Cat123
Jan 9th, 2008, 05:19 PM
Booing faults is a pet hate of mine. It's just unsporting (even though I'm secretly wishing for faults from the other player when my favourites are on court, I don't should about it!)

redsonja
Jan 9th, 2008, 05:19 PM
I always feel bad for her (and Novak, and Ana) when that happens with the crowd. There's support and there's belligerence. Hopefully if the players all keep making it clear that they themselves find that behaviour unacceptable, it'll tone down a bit.

RFS
Jan 9th, 2008, 05:21 PM
Totally... to give the UK commentators credit - they even suggested that JJ should actually grab the ump's mic and tell them herself to try and behave a bit more sportingly... but from what i see so far (stopped watching for the moment) they at least seem to have settled...

Cat123
Jan 9th, 2008, 06:12 PM
Don't tell me they were worse than the J-Block?!! :lol:

redsonja
Jan 9th, 2008, 06:59 PM
:lol: Actually, when I was at the US Open this year for Djokovic's semi, I was in the same section as the Serbian fans and they were noisy, but fine. It always seems like it's worse in Australia, though... wasn't it just last year that there were fights between the Serbian and Croatian fans at the AO and security was kicking them out?

Ah, yes. (http://sports.espn.go.com/sports/tennis/aus07/news/story?id=2731537) And look, JJ even supports my "worse in Australia" theory :lol:
Serbian player Jelena Jankovic, a U.S. Open semifinalist last year, said ethnic divisions had no place at the tournament, but that such incidents occurred more in Melbourne -- one of Australia's most mixed-ethnic cities -- than elsewhere on the tennis circuit.

"I think just here in Melbourne that there is this kind of problem," she said. "Anywhere else in the world it's fine."

Wayn77
Jan 9th, 2008, 09:09 PM
It's always good to hear a bit of atmosphere in the stadium.

The Serbian fans certainly liven the place up with the singing and chanting. Can you imagine the atmosphere in Belgrade for a big tier event with the Serbs playing? The place would be rocking..

The moronic football-style booing has to stop though. It is probably a minority making the rest look bad .... as always.

schorsch
Jan 11th, 2008, 01:54 AM
THe only way to kind of prevent them is for JJ to go to the umpire and get the mic and tell them to change their cheering a bit. but that would be bad. the crowd would feel treated badly. especially cause they are trying so hard to help her win.

so whatever.

at least jelena gets more crowd support then ana :devil:

redsonja
Jan 11th, 2008, 02:02 AM
Plus, is she really allowed to just take the umpire's mic? Somehow I think that would be frowned upon. :lol:

schorsch
Jan 11th, 2008, 02:16 AM
No, she is. People have done it before. But she would really piss off her fans. So maybe the umpire should make it clear from the start. BUT HELLO !? I think this would VERY tacky and lets not forget how many tickets the Serbs buy during all of the Australian events!

I'm not sure what the reasoning behind choosing a novice actress to direct a short film with a Reebok athlete is. Maybe she's done work for Reebok? She evidently has director aspirations, but I don't know how she hooked up with this project. I just wish they could've gotten someone a little more mature to pair with JJ...but at the beginning it's kind of fun seeing them go shopping together at least :lol:

Bruno71
Jan 12th, 2008, 10:09 PM
Now that most of you all have watched it I can comment a bit more. I tried to get on board with la Brittany, I really did. At first I just chalked it up to a nervous youngster (possibly a fan?). But it became more apparent to me that, while she's obviously a very well-meaning, nice person, there's just some synapse that's not firing right. JJ seemed to react very well to her in excitement over the project at first, but by the time the ladybug event happens, she seems a bit like "OK this one has her universe and I have mine."

As far as the short, it looked somewhat slick, but at best it's something ESPN might show in between games of a match. With its over-reliance on titles, I've seen similar stuff on youtube. Harsh, I know.

But overall "Framed" was must-watch TV for us. JJ's personality came through blazingly, and there were quite a few hysterical moments. Glad IFC did this, even if like .000005% of the US population probably has that channel :lol:

Brittany talks to much..............She also interrupted Jelena too much.

Jelena was very good. I always thought she was a lovely person, but I under estimated how lovely she really is.

These are my original statements.

I also had the impression that Brittany thought we were doing a show about Brittany.

HEE! I had to do the same... I hit pause so many times... it took about an hour and a half to get through the whole thing.

Half of it I'm only listening to the audio because looking at it is too embarrassing. :lol: I did enjoy when Brittany said that she thought Jelena probably didn't understand how bad she would be at tennis. I'm thinking to myself, no... I'm pretty sure she had that figured out. :lol:

All kudos to JJ, though. I'm only just through the shopping trip, and I've concluded that if I had to spend a day with this girl, I would have killed her.

First time when the kid said sth about Paszek-JJ, Sveta said "I don't mind the {screwer :lol:}...." but it seems that she was talking with some guy in the background (coach maybe). Then the kid said that about MPs and Sveta replied "I saw that!".

So she was prolly watching the match earlier and had to go to practice and wanted to know what happened...

Bruno! Please! http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/images/smilies/dramaqueen1.gif JJ will never have grey hair! Although, of course, only her hairdresser will know for sure.

And that bow... I just don't get it. She always comes out with it on and then she always takes it off, so I'm assuming Reebok must tell her she has to wear it, but honestly, who thought that would be a good idea? I can't think of a single woman I'd put that on-- maybe Dementieva or something, but only if I was absolutely forced to pick someone. JJ would be just about my last pick, maybe just ahead of Amelie. She is just not a Minnie Mouse bow kind of girl. :p

Has anyone got the match. I was really tired after a long night, so I fell asleep without noticing and when I woke up her match was already finished :sad:

Oh schorsch :lol: As you've probably read, you spent a much more peaceful night that way. Hopefully someone has it for ya.

I haven't had a chance to edit out the crap yet - I can try and do it first thing tomorrow, write it off to DVD (now that I've found where they hid, and unpacked the little buggers!)... and then I'll mega-upload tomorrow while at work... unless Sarah beats me to it!

It will have: Pre-match interview, Match, the odd advert I miss (it will be even quicker to turn this around if people aren't bothered by that?) and the post-match interview... maybe even the post match post-mortem....

Thanks, Ros. I doubt I'd be able get the thing up before you with my connection speed at the moment plus I missed the pre-match interview as I was still dragging myself out of bed.

OK - I'll get on it during the day - may be later in the evening by the time I get the whole thing up - I'll leave it uploading as I drag myself to the ...oh what's the word... oh yeah - Gym!

Thanks for that vid!

Her "lurking" isn't working too badly is it?! I think she can play well at net when she wants to, although I wonder if it's fluke sometimes!!!

Just watched (without sound! I'm in the library!). Trust her to serve it out the hard way!!! :rolleyes: Good to see her smiling on court, even if it's not in the singles. Seems she needs someone with her to stop her losing the plot!

Awesome. That was hilarious. :lol: Thanks, Sarah.

It't the utter look of disbelief on the losing side as they go to their seats that is just fantastic... all "WTF happened there???"

:lol: that two-finger kiss!

it seems like everytime the two share a laugh it's something about an inside joke. they really play well together.

They totally seem like, as soon as this match is over, we're going shoe shopping and then getting manicures. :lol:

The whole "I'm going through pains, but I can't complain... I'm in the semi-final!" sounds like she just won the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes. :lol:

And she's so confuzzled she's not sure where she's going. Awesome. :)

Soooo adorable. However, Jelena, it CAN get better than the semifinals. Dare to dream.

OK - because I'm switching between laptop & PC and using the same screen - I think that sometimes causes megaupload to die half way through so...

Will edit the QF at lunchtime and will try and get both uploaded after work this evening...

Yeah! I just saw the interview she's so refreshingly candid. From what I saw in the highlights on TV, I think she also got lost on court when she went to Serena's chair after the acknowledging the crowd. :lol:

I know this is a little premature, but Ros, you will be my 3rd favourite person on the planet (after JJ and Maria!) if you can bring me mouth-watering SF action that I'm likely to miss... :hug: I've got chocolate cookies too. Or jelly beans if you prefer ;)

Chocolate cookies AND jelly beans...!

Well for the 3rd time of asking - megaupload has hiccuped when left alone... so concentrating on the QF match in full and editing as we go... so will have both to try and upload in a while...

Thanks for all the effort you're putting into this. :D

BTW, JJ's post match press interview can now be viewed on Eurosport (http://eurosport.yahoo.com/). She always gets the press people laughing and joking in her interviews. :angel: I thought it was especially funny when she was describing (complete with hand gestures) how she saved match point in her first round match. And that she's also thinking of getting a new leg. :lol: :haha:
