Sounded like she wanted to win another title in the on-court postmatch interview. :lol:

Her points have not been very long. She's had a rest day here and there and the weather has appeared to be fairly moderate. Had she not played these tournies she would have likely been practising everyday. Physically, it's nearly identical, the only difference is that she's being mentally challenged. This is what makes you stronger.

She'll do just as well at Wimbledon whether or not she plays tomorrow at 100%. For world class players, it's not a question of physical exhaustion, it's mental fatigue.

Jelena is the fittest player on tour... She won't tank it... She played so many matches this year and she doesn't seem to be tired at all...

Jankovic will not tank. She'll be in the second week of Wimbledon.

Bruno71
Jun 22nd, 2007, 08:26 PM
or she will end up losing 1R like the last 3 champions of 's-Hertogenbosch :p

JJ can be on crutches with a catheter up her you know what and still beat Keothavong.

She could beat Keothavong playing with one hand. But, I'm disappointed she didn't withdraw from today's match with a bruised thumb, or something.

Yes I agree with this, in those tight 3 setters its as much as a mental fatigue as it is a physical one.

Well, she's got a day off to get to Wimbledon, probably a day off when she gets there, and then Keothavong (sorry, but pretty much a day off). She doesn't spend all her free time training, so she's going to be recovered just fine by the time she needs to play her serious tennis.

People have been criticising her since the word "go"

Facts are Jelena is world #3, if she makes it deep at wimbledon, and Semis or better esp, she has a good chance at world #2....after that if she plays at this current level i see her as a threat at the US Open as well where i think she will win her first major.

At the end of the year Jelena will have AT LEAST 80-90 matches won, if not 100 and she WILL be world #1.

Dont like it? Too bad, go cry to your momma.

she can be world #1 at race but not for entry system as long as Justine & Serena is healthy. and since the last 3 majors have been won by them, Jankovic needs to win Wimbledon, US Open and YEC to get that close.

You can think what you want. Obviously others will make the appropiate judgements on your opinions too. Fact remains, in terms of ranking points which are, as I trust you know, what the rankings are based on, winning Miami is worth only half as many points as winning a Grand Slam and only a few more points than winning The Italian Open or Charleston.

Jelena is going for 100 wins this season.

probably not, because she won't play in Cincinnati and Stanford.

but it will be interesting to see how many victories Jelena will have...


The only player that can beat Jelena now, it's Henin...Since Charleston, Jelena only loses to Justine.

don't make it personal here, ChrisCHorse. i know where you are coming from.
"idiot" isn't an appropriate judgement. that poster acted like i know nothing about what i said so it deserves :weirdo: from me.

I think she'll need 91 to break Clijsters' 2003 season
of 90-12. That would be more realistic. More factoids:
she has more wins in 2007 than Sharapova (ahead of her)
and Mauresmo (behind her in the rankings) combined,
and that's counting Eastbourne results, and not counting
Rosmalen results, just for fun.
