as well as actually beating Henin. :devil:

:lol: Life has such a sense of humor.



Jelena had this to say today after her mixed doubles match:

JELENA JANKOVIC:

But I'm really disappointed. I should be not in this press conference. I should be playing right now (laughter). When I went to the locker room, I was watching the match Justine, Bartoli, I said, That's my spot. I should be there.

But that's life. Have to move on. Forget about it. Enjoy my mixed doubles.


:lol: Oh Jelena...

I guess now she'll say, the final spot should have been hers. :o

Why does no one ever call her arrogant? It baffles me.

That spot is only in her dreams,and for Bartoli her '10hrs'have paid off big.Jelena must know that her big mouth is gonna bring her bad vibes.The Venus she beat on clay is not the same Venus at Wimbledon.Until she learns to control that trap of hers she will always be second best to Ana Henin Serena and Bartoli.Jelena must take a page from Ana's script she is respectful humble and wise and thats good things are going to come to her before they go to Jelena.

Jelena is just not really smart IMO. Sometimes it is funny sometimes it is not.

it's not at all the first time she's said something stupid like that...but I do agree most of the top 10 are bad sports and make themselves look like idiots with what they say and the yelling and fist pumping after every point.

Because, as is the case with everything and everyone, people find it easiest to hate the best, and Serena is the best tennis player of her generation. People seem to like to patronise players liek Jelena, either way she is every bit as arrogant as Serena, not as much as Myskina...but what can you do. she is enormously talented, and has, a wonderful personality. Plus she does it more humourously than Serena. Transparent humourless humour, but humour none the less.

Going by those comments, it's quite clear she is.

She has opened her mouth a lot of times and if read her interviews at FO she has become so arrogant too cocky.She needs to learn diplomacy and she will win more people over with honey not vinegar.

In all honesty, she DOES practice more than any other player I have seen.

Whenever Bartoli is in a tournament I attend, she is on the practice court for upwards of 3-4 hours at a time.

Lol, ignoring that part of the conference, I thought this was pretty cute and funny:


Q. It's the first time you've played mixed doubles. Do you think you'll play again after this tournament?

JAMIE MURRAY: Yes (laughter).

JELENA JANKOVIC: Now another proposal. He keeps coming with it each time.

No, I will see. I would love to play mixed doubles at the US Open.

JAMIE MURRAY: With me?

JELENA JANKOVIC: We'll see. I will try. Just for me it's very difficult because I play a lot of singles. It can be sometimes very tiring to play both. I try to save my energy for singles.

JAMIE MURRAY: That's why I'm running for all the drop shots.

JELENA JANKOVIC: Okay, if he will do that, I will play with him.

JAMIE MURRAY: Loads of conditions.

A budding romance Jelena seems to have on her hands. :hehehe:

If she really practice 10 hours a day so why does she look so fat.
