I'm not so sure that she will play in Tokio...She plans to ga far in AO, and Tokio is sooo close :(

I will ask her... ;)

Nov 12th, 2006, 06:05 PM
Big points in Tokyo and usually a fairly easy field for a Tier 1 tournament? I really hope she at least is planning to play there. What about warm-up events for AO? Just Sydney, or is she planning to play one of the smaller events as well? I know Anna Chakvedtadze is planning on playing one of them and if she does well, she could potentially push Jelena down to the #13 ranking, which I believe means that her round of 16 match up goes from playing one of the players ranked 5-8 to a player ranked 1-4? That might really prevent Jelena from going as far as she is planning. I think she needs to get into one of the first tournaments for next year to guarantee that she stays seeded 12 or higher.

xcrtbckhnd
Nov 12th, 2006, 06:17 PM
Looking at the rankings a bit more closely, Anna C. is only 67 points behind JJ at this point. And I believe Anna is going to play one of the first 2 events of the season. That gives her opportunity to get the #12 seed and push Jelena down to #13. So the difference is that instead of playing one of Kim, Nadia, Martina or Elena in the round of 16, Jelena would be looking at playing Justine, Amelie, Maria or Sveta. Although I think that Jelena could beat any of these players on a given day, I like her chances of gettting to the quarters and beyond a lot better if she's facing one of the players ranked 5-8 instead of the players ranked 1-4..... Just my 2 cents, but that's why holding onto the #12 ranking could be so important for her to start the year on the right foot.

ASB Classic Includes Four Top 20 Players

3:14 pm, 22 Nov 2006

For the first time there will be four players ranked in the top 20 of women's tennis in January's ASB Classic in Auckland.

The top seed for the tournament is Serbia's Jelena Jankovic, the world number 12 who reached the quarterfinals in Auckland two years ago as a teenager.

The 2005 French Open champion and former world number two Anastasia Myskina of Russia, defending champion Marion Bartoli of France and former world number four Daniel Hantuchova from Slovakia round out the top four.

The fifth seed at the $216,000 tournament is another Russian, this year's beaten finalist Vera Zvonareva, and the draw includes newcomer Sania Mirza, the first Indian to win a WTA title.

Tenis Srbija
Nov 22nd, 2006, 01:58 PM
Such a small tournament, but still a great line up! Myskina is always dangereous for Janky, Hantuchova is unpredictable... I don't think that Marion Bartoli could pose a threat, but Vera Zvonareva is maybe a greater threat to Janky then Myskina and Hantuchova... Mirza...well she had a crapy season, maybe she can improve during the winter, but her bom-bom tennis, doesn't have a chance againts Janky...

Good luck!

First Four ASB Classic - Four Players In Top-20
November 22, 2006 7:30 pm

The words “best ever” are commonly used when describing the ASB Classic each year. And once again the phrase “best ever” is true with the 2007 ASB Classic featuring the Sovereign singles and doubles set to have the best list of players in its history, featuring many notable names and highly ranked players.

For the first time ever four players in the top-20 rankings will participate in the US$145,000 tournament.

Both finalists from 2006 have entered, as has a semifinalist from this years US Open, a new player in the form of a former Roland Garros champ and former world No2 plus several other new and exciting players.

The top seed for the tournament will be world No12 Jelena Jankovic who may be familiar to New Zealanders for her appearance at the ASB Classic in 2005 where she reached the quarterfinals as a teenager and gave a glimpse of what is now regarded as one of the most attacking backhands in the game.

Although not winning a singles title this year Jankovic made a huge impact. She struggled initially but after May compiled a record which included the fourth round at Wimbledon, the final in Los Angeles where she beat Ana Ivanovic and Serena Williams but lost to Elena Dementieiva in three sets.

There was also a semifinal appearance at Beijing where she beat Nadia Petrova but fell to Amelie Mauresmo in a third set tiebreak and a semi finish in Guanzhou and Strasbourg. She also made the quarters at six events.

The big result was at the US Open where in consecutive matches Jankovic beat Nicole Vaidisova, Svetlana Kuznetsova and Dementieiva before going down to Justine Henin-Hardenne in three sets. Her current ranking of 12 is a career-high.

Joining Jankovic in the top-20 are second seeded Russian Anastasia Myskina the French Open champion at Roland Garros in 2005 and a former world No2 who owns ten WTA singles titles.

Myskina is at No16 in the world, followed by defending champ Marion Bartoli of France who won three titles this year and currently sits at a career-high No17.

Rounding out the top-four seeds is former No5 Daniela Hantuchova currently at 18 and a popular semifinalist at the 2006 ASB Classic

This years beaten singles finalist, but doubles winner Vera Zvonareva returns with a ranking of 24. The former top-10 player will be the fifth seed.

Other top-50 players include two-time champion Eleni Daniilidou returning to continue her love affair with the centre court at the ASB Tennis Centre. Daniilidou scored some top results in 2006 including a title at Seoul and is currently ranked 36.

Also included in the player list is flamboyant Italian Romina Oprandi in her breakthrough year on the circuit with former world No12 Natalie Dechy who was a semifinalist at the 2005 Australian Open.

They along with Shenay Perry and Jamea Jackson and Croat, Jelena Kostanic round out the 11 players ranked in the top-50.

A newcomer to the ASB Classic is India’s Sania Mirza who became a national hero in her country when she became the first Indian to win a WTA title beating Alyona Bondarenko at the Hyderabad event in 2005. This year Mirza, 20 reached one semifinal and three quarterfinals and has career-wins over a number of top-10 players. She is currently ranked at 67.

Another player of note is Argentine Paola Suarez who reached a high in singles rankings of No9 in 2004 and has been the world No1 in doubles player winning eight Grand Slam doubles titles. Suarez was a semifinalist at Roland Garros in 2004 and has been a quarterfinalist at Grand Slams on three other occasions. She was a singles finalist in Auckland in 2001 and has entered with a special injury ranking of 55.

“This is an exciting list of players with many different styles, personalities and nationalities. It’s going to be difficult to predict the quarterfinalists, let alone the winner. Having four players in the top-20 is a first and the calibre of those players is quite remarkable.

“A field of this quality couldn’t have been achieved without the assistance and wholehearted backing of ASB. Their partnership has been vital in growing the status of the tournament and this year’s line-up is a testament to the reputation we now have on the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour,” says ASB Classic tournament director, Richard Palmer.

Looks like Jelena will be playing Sydney, too.

Sydney, November 29 - The Medibank International has announced the greatest field in the tournament’s history with nine of the top 10 women’s players confirmed.

A spectacular line-up of women stars will grace the courts of the Sydney Olympic Park Tennis Centre in January.

Tournament Director Craig Watson confirmed title-holder and world No.1 Justine Henin-Hardenne will return to defend the crown she won in a brilliant fashion last January.
Joining the Belgian will be world number three Amelie Mauresmo as well as world number four Svetlana Kuznetsova and number five Kim Clijsters.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have 18 of the top 20 women players in the world confirmed to play the Medibank International. This amazing group of players is the best field the tournament has ever seen," said Mr. Watson.

"All these women have enjoyed incredible success in 2006. Justine became the first woman since 1997 and only the seventh in the Open-era to reach all four Grand Slam finals and won the French Open for the third time. She also capped off the year by winning the season-ending Sony Ericsson Championships, where she turned the tables on Amelie.

"As for Amelie, what a year she has had; the best of her career. She is one of the few who can claim two Slam wins in a season, with her breakthrough at the Australian and then to become the first French woman since 1925 to win Wimbledon.

Rounding out confirmed players from the top 10 are Nadia Petrova at six, three-time Medibank International champion Martina Hingis at seven, Elena Dementieva at eight, Patty Schnyder at nine and Nicole Vaidisova at ten.

Petrova, Dementieva and Schnyder showed great consistency over the year. The Medibank International was one of Hingis’s comeback events and her return has been spectacular.

She started the year unranked and is back in the world’s top 10. Vaidisova has also had the best year of her career; winning the title at Strasbourg and scoring a major upset at the French Open by beating Mauresmo where she also reached the semifinals.

One of the most popular players on the women's tour, Francesca Schiavone will also be back.

The Italian won over a lot of fans at the Medibank International last January when she came within a couple of games of beating Henin-Hardenne and winning the title.

She tasted incredible success in September, leading Italy to the Fed Cup crown over Belgium which included Henin-Hardenne.

China's Na Li is one of the most exciting players in the women's game. At Wimbledon last July, she became the first player from China to reach the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam and now has a world ranking of 21.

"This is going to be a Medibank International to remember," added Mr. Watson.

"The tournament will give Sydney the chance to see so many of the world's greatest athletes in one venue. These amazing women join the outstanding men's names we have already announced including Australia’s Lleyton Hewitt, world number two and French Open champion Rafael Nadal, world number three Nikolay Davydenko, Medibank International titleholder and world number four James Blake, and Australian Open finalist Marcos Baghdatis.

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Sydney to see the absolute cream of the world’s best tennis players at the Medibank International.”

It's great to see that Jelena is adding Auckland and Sydney to her schedule this year. Only 2nd round points at AO from last year, then nothing to defend for the next 9 tounaments!!!! I'm so excited for Jelena to start playing next year and move up the rankings!!! It's going to be great if she can just get a few big results at some of the bigger tournaments. The AO and Tokyo could be huge for her. Although I don't know for sure that she's playing in Tokyo yet.

I love the way you think!!!! It's certainly possible too. Jelena's at 1211 points right now which consist of her best 17 tournaments of:

USO - 314
LA - 137
Wimby - 96
Beijing - 88
Rome - 75
FO - 62
Strasbourg - 55
Guangzhou - 55
Stuttgart - 55
Linz - 49
Montreal - 42
San Diego - 42
Zurich - 42
AO - 38
Cinci - 30
s'Herto - 30
Miami (mandatory) - 1

and her 18th best not counted is Quebec - 30
and her 19th best not counted is Stanford - 25

JJ is currently 180 points away from the Top 10 and 367 points away from the Top 9. 115 points goes to the winner of Auckland, but Jelena can only really get 85 points since she'll drop one of the 30 point results from her best 17. Semis at Sydney would give her 125 points or 95 points less the 30 she would lose, so that could potentially do it for her depending on how Nicole Vaidisova and Safina perform. A quarterfinal run at AO would give her 250 points and this should be enough to guarantee Top 10, again depending on what others do. A nice run in Tokyo as well and Jelena could move up into the Top 7 or 8. It's going to be an exciting season!!! In some ways, it's almost better that Jelena had such a disastrous start to 2006. It's going to make the first half of 2007 so much fun!!!:)

Yeah, I read that over the in GM the other day. I didn't think then it was a great idea for Jelena to play if she was hurt, but I hoped it was simply a matter of being sore rather than injured.

In any event, I don't think it was a bad score by any means and I'm certainly not disappointed. Shame it had to finish with a strange tie-break thing for the third set, you can't really tell from that who would have won the match had it been played properly.

Tennis: Women's doubles shaping as star attraction

So often the poor cousin in international tennis tournaments, the doubles at next month's women's classic is shaping as a spectacle.

Singles top seed and world No 12 Jelena Jankovic is set to join Slovenian Tina Krizan in a pairing which shapes as the dangerous floater.

"It is not often these days your singles top seed also plays doubles," said ASB Classic director Richard Palmer yesterday. "But the indications are that Jankovic is more than likely to play both."

The Sovereign doubles are already likely to have one of the world's most successful pairings as the top seeds, with eight-time Grand Slam winners Virginia Ruano Pascual (Spain) and her Argentine partner Paolo Suarez heading to the ASB Tennis Centre.

Pascual and Suarez have unfinished business in Auckland after they were beaten in the 2004 final in what still rates as one of the biggest upsets in the tournament's history.

Jankovic, down one place from her career-high 44 on the doubles rankings, and Krizan, once ranked 19 (in 2002) on the doubles list, have played regularly this year.

They reached the quarter-finals twice and went out in three sets at Wimbledon to Martina Navratilova and Liezel Huber in the second round.

Jankovic won her first doubles title in Birmingham this year.

Defending singles champion Marion Bartoli will be one of the first to arrive in Auckland when she touches down on Tuesday to begin preparations for the title she won here a year ago.

Tennis Week: A friend of mine, Hey, saw you and Jankovic playing doubles together and was struck by how both of you really made an effort to acknowlege and interact with fans.

Bethanie Mattek: For sure. The fans are important. Obviously, it's important to be focused, but again if you have no fans you really don't have a tour. That's just how it is. I really enjoy playing with Jelena. I think we're going to be playing a lot together next year. I was just talking to her. She's hilarious to play with. She's one of these people who will hear what people in the crowd say. So we'll be talking between points, deciding where we're going to serve and she'll say "Did you hear what that guy said up there?" So it's really relaxing because we'll be laughing and we actually play better and we're in the moment and relaxed. I had her wearing some of my socks at some of the tournaments so in L.A. and San Diego she was wearing some of my stuff. She's really got a cool personality. I think I'm more relaxed playing doubles so I'm trying to bring that attitude to my singles just being relaxed, in the moment and having fun. I love playing doubles. I like playing at net, I have good hands, I think. So it's really fun for me. So doubles is definitely important next year. It comes down to schedule and if Jelena and I are playing the same events. I think she's going to play Dubai and Doha and I'm planning to play Memphis and Acapulco so you have to kind of work with the schedule. We said something about possibly playing the Grand Slams and Miami next year. We still have to talk about it, but for the Australian Open and Tokyo I'm not quite sure who I am playing with.

Another Jelena mention:

http://sports.espn.go.com/sports/tennis/news/story?id=2701095

Player to watch in 2007: The vivacious, assertive 21-year-old Jelena Jankovic of Serbia bogged down early in the season, going winless in nine straight tournaments. She reversed direction and came into her own during summer hard-court play. Jankovic finished 2006 at a career-high No. 12 and beat three top-10 players this year. But she had trouble closing out a number of important winnable matches, and her abrupt mental meltdown in the U.S. Open semifinals against Henin-Hardenne -- along with some postmatch sour grapes comments -- shows she has some maturing to do.

Tenis Srbija
Dec 24th, 2006, 09:31 PM
Yes...maturing to do!!! Her's coach, mister Sanchez, will help her alot with that, cause he is one serious man! No fooling around with him...that's the reason JJ had that ankle problem, he overpushed her by her's limits.

Hi Guys - I edited the first post in this thread so that we can stay current with Jelena's ranking, schedule, etc throughout the year. She needs to make at least the semis of Auckland to add any points to her current total. Unfortunately, even if she wins the tournament, she's not going to move up any in the rankings. But, she also isn't going to drop a spot either. A semifinal or better appearance would help Jelena get closer to the 11 ranking though. She could certainly get there with a win here and a strong result in Sydney. Semis or better there and she's got a chance at breaking the Top 10 already! (Depends a lot on how Safina and Nicole perform of course).

Well, I agree and disagree to be honest. You're right that JJ just needs to play her game and see what happens, however, she is in a very unique position right now due to 2 factors that might not happen again - 1) the new ranking system that awards higher points this year as compared to last year, and 2) her poor play at the beginning of last year really gives her a chance to take advantage of these early tournaments and produce some big results and big ranking points. So to me Jelena really has a great chance to do something big, but she needs to take advantage of these 2 scenarios right now. It's not exactly "now or never," but this really is a golden opportunity. Might as well make it happen now rather than wait until later in the year when she will be defending so many of her points. Updating 1st post now....

Nicole is seeded and has much easier draw than Jeca and if Jeca wins one match she won`t win any points because she has good 17th result. So it means she`ll probably stay at No12 until AO. There will be great chance for cracking top10, but she`ll have and second, for me even bigger in Tokyo where she`ll be among four top seeds and that is tier I tournament where she can earn a lot of points.

But, more important than ranking is that Jeca plays good and she`ll be in top10 for sure, week before or later, never mind...

Well, you never know what Jelena will come up with at Sydney, so let's remain hopeful that she can string together a couple of upsets. I do agree with you about Tokyo being a big opportunity. Nicole is seeded, but her draw isn't really that good with Daniela possibly upsetting her in the 1st round? And Safina would meet Kim in the 2nd round, so I don't think she's going to get too far either. It's interesting that to get to the Top 10, Jelena essentially needs to put together some better results than Dinara and Nicole at Sydney and the AO. Even if she doesn't, I don't think either one is playing Tokyo, so Jelena should catch them then.

It's going to really helpful once she gets that single 1 point from Miami off her ranking as well! Even though I wish she would play Dubai or Doha, it is probably better to get some rest and get ready for the big events at Indian Wells and Miami.

I don't think so...

Maybe she has finnaly realised that she is "worthy" now! That she can make some great cash just for appearing at some tier II and lower tier tournaments... But I'm still suprised she isn't playing IW...

Well that isn't that strange... She would have to play like two GS tournaments in a row... Maybe she just wanna rest before Key Biscayne, and then shine there!

By the way look at how many top players aren't playing in IW, now it doesn't look like a Tier I tournament :rolleyes:

If she wins her 2nd round match she'll earn 110 points = qf points. But if she loses to Zheng/Q she won't get any points as if she lost in the 1st round

So important match for her. One single win is worth more than last year three wins in Wimbledon or Beijing SF. :eek: Please Jeca take that chance!!!

Added Dubai, seems like a good chance she'll play Doha too like she did last year. Then again, she played both of those last year and IW as well.
Luka - please get Jelena to tell you what tournaments she is going to play whenever you can. It's driving me a little crazy not to know! :help:

I actually really hope she plays as much as she can at the beginning of the year to push that ranking up as far as possible. This is such a unique opportunity to score big points for her. Of course, as long as she stays healthy and peaks for the big matches!

A semifinal finish at Tokyo should give Jelena the #9 ranking. If she makes the final or better, she could get to #8 depending on how far Elena D goes. Can't get to #7 even if Hingis loses first round and Jelena wins the title. (but she would be close!) I wouldn't be too surprised if Shahar beats Maria and Jelena plays her in the semis - that could be a good match too!

"Ostvarila sam svoj cilj, da udjem u prvih 10 najboljih teniserki sveta, iako nisam ocekivala da cu uspeti odmah posle mesec dana takmicenja u sezoni 2007. Na turniru u Tokiju nikad nisam dobro igrala, nisam ljubitelj ove podloge i tesko mi je da nadjem ritam. U svakom slucaju, odigrala sam cetvrtfinale sto i nije tako lose! Danas sam katastrofalno servirala, slabo mi je isao prvi servis , a tesko je brejknuti protivnicu pogotovo ako ona dobro servira. U svakom slucaju, moram da ostanem pozitivna i veoma sam srecna sto napokon idem kuci, nazad za Beograd! Imacu 2 nedelje zasluzene pauze, da napunim baterije za sledece turnire ,a to su Dubai i Doha,"rekla je posle poraza Jelena Janković.

Vaidisova and Jankovic enter Family Circle Cup
Seven of the Top Ten Players in the World to Compete in Premier Charleston Event

The 2007 Family Circle Cup continues to attract the top ranked players on the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour as World No. 9 Nicole Vaidisova and World No. 10 Jelena Jankovic have officially entered the Charleston event. With the addition of these two premier players, this year’s Family Circle Cup player field now boasts seven of the top ten players in the world including No. 1 Maria Sharapova, No. 2 Justine Henin, No. 3 Amélie Mauresmo, No. 5 Svetlana Kuznetsova, and No. 6 Martina Hingis. Celebrating over three decades in women’s professional tennis, the Family Circle Cup is scheduled for April 7th - 15th, 2007 at the Family Circle Tennis Center in Charleston, South Carolina.



“Nicole and Jelena are two players who represent the youthful and talented depth that exists at the top level of women’s professional tennis today,” commented Robin Reynolds, Family Circle Cup Tournament Director. “They are the driving force behind the next generation of stars, and we’re very glad to have them back in Charleston competing against the other top players in the world.”

Nicole Vaidisova’s Family Circle Cup debut in 2005 was a memorable one. She came into the tournament ranked No. 47 in the world. She upset the No. 3 seed Anastasia Myskina en route to the quarterfinal round, marking her career-first Top 10 victory. At only seventeen years old with over $1.5 million in career earnings, Nicole has already claimed six Sony Ericsson WTA Tour singles titles, and finished the 2006 season ranked as the World No. 10 player after peaking at No. 9 in August of that year. Nicole was born in Germany where she resided until traveling to Florida to train at the Bollettieri Academy, and currently resides in Prague, Czech Republic.

Jelena Jankovic is making her fourth consecutive appearance at the Family Circle Cup, and at only 21 years old has earned over $1.7 million in career winnings. She has already claimed two Sony Ericsson WTA Tour singles titles, and finished her 2006 breakthrough season ranked as the World No. 12 player. In 2006, she posted her best Grand Slam result to date by advancing to the semifinals of the US Open, as well as capturing her career first doubles title at Birmingham. After claiming Auckland at the beginning of 2007, she rose to a career high World No. 10 on January 27th, and has propelled herself to a 13-3 record this season. Jelena was born in Serbia and currently resides in Bradenton, Florida.

Looking at the ranking points, Jelena's really on track to a Top 5 seeding for the FO. She could even break into the Top 5 after Miami depending on how other players fare. If Jelena doesn't do that well at IW, it'll be okay, but she's got a huge opportunity to get rid of that mandatory 1 point on her ranking from Miami from last year, so hopefully she'll do really well there. I'd guess that a semi at Doha, a semi at IW, and a final at Miami would get her to the Top 5. Not too much to ask, right? ;-)

Mar 3rd, 2007, 03:25 PM
Guys- I just spent some time looking at the rankings and there are big opportunities for Jelena in the next 2 tournaments. Elena Dementieva has big points to defend at IW (228), so it's almost a certainty that Jelena will pass her in the rankings unless Elena does something amazing here. Petrova is next in line, and Jelena's got a decent shot at passing her in the rankings as well especially if Nadia goes down early in the tournament. It's not too likely, but theoretically, it could happen. And it's even numerically possible for Jelena to pass Hingis as well. Martina would basically need to lose 1st round and Jelena would need to win the title, but you never know, anything's possible!
Strangely, there's not a lot of the line for Miami in terms of Jelena's competitors directly above her in the rankings. Nadia only has 87 points there, and Hingis only has 31 points. Potentially, Miami might be the place where Jelena could start to close the gap with Kuznetsova who does have a lot of points to defend there (350). Amelia Island and Charleston are also going to be huge opportunities for Jelena to keep rising up the rankings. Nadia in particular will be vulnerable at that point, so if Jelena doesn't pass her after IW and Miami, she's got a great chance to do so during these events. Top 5 here we come!!!! I'm really hoping that Jelena can somehow get a Top 4 seed for the FO - how amazing would that be!!!! It is certainly possible if she maintains the level of play she's had so far this year.

xcrtbckhnd
Mar 3rd, 2007, 03:32 PM
And I forgot to mention how well Jelena is doing in the race to the championships! She probably won't move up after Doha, and will remain at #6, but she is distancing herself from the players below her at the moment. Still a long way to go, but having a strong start to the year is important. Jelena just needs to win a couple of big events (Tier 1's) and go far in a few of the slams she will be virtually locked in. I just really want to see Jelena win a GS more than anything. I think the clay season should be good for her with her speed around the court and consistency.

Hopefully Jelena will rest up these next few days and let her ankle fully heal. AND NO DOUBLES PLEASE!!!!!! She's going to do great at both IW and Miami and I predict we'll see her at #7 (at least) when both tournaments are over. With Clijsters not playing the FO, I think Jelena's got a very real chance to get a top 4 seed, so that's what I'm hoping for personally! I hope she can win both IW and Miami and surprise everyone. Or at minimum, get to the semis of both. I'd really like to see her at least reach the finals of one of them. Hopefully with an upset over Maria or Henin!

Yes, Berlin is "still" a Tier I event. But the whole tournament is in danger to be degraded in the future. Until 2008 it will stay Tier I. But the WTA is planning to change the shedule for Berlin and we also don't know if the main sponsor will stay, which is currently Quatar Telecom. Btw this is really a shame that the main sponsor of the last WTA Tier I event in germany is not a german company. :rolleyes: :mad: But just another clear sign that the german tennis boom is long one. :sad:

Speaking of Jelena, I think she should definitely play Berlin, because it's a great city and germans like smart and pretty girls, with a great sense of humor and a big portion of character. :hearts: So JJ is very welcome. ;) :bounce: :kiss:

Hi Luka:wavey:
Well, compared to Serbia the situation in germany is not that bad. But only until now.;) Because when I take a deep look at the potential in terms of top players, than Serbia seems to have a much brighter future compared to germany. :sad: Especially when I see germany's WTA players and put them against your players...than my friend "all lights are out in germany". :lol: We haven't anything comparable to Ana and of course Jelena. But even if we would have...I would always choose JJ, because of the combination of charisma, character, sense of humor and talent. :worship:

I was talking about tournaments ;) But hey, I would always have one 10k tournament, instead of GS, in exchange for two top 15 players :angel:

By the way, who is best ranked German? Not counting Anna-Lena, she will soon drop out of 100 if she doesn't starts winning again :help: If Schruff is the next one, that yours situation is really :tape:

The best ranked one is Müller (except ALG...btw sad story) on spot No. 35. Solid but definitely not having TOP 10 potenital. :rolleyes: No comment on Schruff. :lol: And yes, the situation is really :tape: if not even :tape: :sobbing: :yawn: combined with :help:

If this is really here schedule, someone has to stop this kind of madness. Let's consider...so far she had a sprained ankle...and right now she is having a big problem with her back and all this only between 2 month. :rolleyes: I think JJ needs more guidance in terms of her "kamikaze" schedule. It's a MUST to change this in the very near future.

Well... JJ felt insulted when someone told her tennis is a part-time job, so she is know keen to prove that it's a full-time job... Not even injuries can stop her :armed:

From my point of view she must change this..otherwise I predict that her career is over in the next 2 years. And the reason will be all sorts of injuries. A true horror scenario. What about her management and her mother? We all know that this schedule is crazy like hell...I cannot believe that no one in her family or management intervenes. Even a fool could see that this is stupid and will bring the girl down pretty quick.

Just relax ;) She can coope with it... She will withdraw from some of those tournaments for sure. She is just trying to earn as much money as she can, before they find out she is on drugs :p :lol:

It's the same as ever...her schedule is a big "headshaker". I don't really know?:rolleyes: :confused: I'm afraid that she won't go far in the big tournaments with that kind of crazyness called schedule. And I'm also afraid that her body will dictate her to rest for a long time in the near future. When it's still her goal to be be NO. 1 and I would like to see her in that position, than she has...no she MUST change her schedule. FULL STOP.

WTF is wrong with her ?
Does she have family or friends?
How can she play and travel without a break ?
What's the motive? Money , hardly as the number of tournaments is not proportional to money earned, same with points.

I am sorry but I never see her breaking out because she is really stubborn. Her schedule makes me mad at her :mad:
In a dream world I can see her winning Wimbledon and then going and playing all these small tournies only to burn out again :help:
