During the matches of Jankovic's, esp when she plays the top players, she always display her trademark sarcastic smile, esp when she loses a game or a set.
most of all it is extremely unsporting when she keeps turning round to carry a conversation with the spectators and laugh. Perhaps Jankovic should consider a career in Hollywood instead. She obviously forgot that she is playing competitive tennis on the courts.
And if Jankovic thought that by doing so she will gain more praises, she is so wrong, because no one will not fall for her irritating tricks. Everyone who know all about the real sports of tennis can see through her pretences.
any new-comer should also take a page off Jankovic's books and NOT do the same because it will backfire and will harm your tennis career.

Right. Tennis-Players should really punished hard, if they try to smile on court or make fun with the crowd.

It should be this punishments:
smile - 1.000 $ and warning.
a tear - 10.000 $ and lost of a game
for a joke with the audience - 25.000 $ and lost of the match.


Heck, who wants to see humans...we want to see emotionless Tennis-Robots.
The WTA should do something very quick.

dear dear. guess we've been most unfortunate to be watching a handful of the tour who display unpleasant behaviour on court in the most unsporting manner possible and harming their tennis careers. how most unfortunate for every tennis fan out there who really wanted to see robots swarm the courts :rolleyes:

stupid debut post?
please excuse us for having our own reactions to Jankovic's court display
we are not promoting emotionless tennis display....Of course it is exciting to see some show of emotions on court...but they must be natural and appropriate
However Jankovic's smirks and antics come across as sarcastic and irritating to her opponents....all we get is her sense of frivolity...and maybe it's her way of geting an upper hand of her opponent...
to further mark our case, her fellow countrywomen Ana Ivanovic also smiles on court. However, hers come at the appropriate and natural time. So it is a joy instead to watch her play.
So more than the actions....it is the intention behind the actions that irritates us

Which opponents of Jelena's have complained about her smiling and/or talking to the crowd? How do you know what they think if you're not one of them?

I find her a breath of fresh air, really.
Her personality is somewhat like Novak's.
She gives credits when it's due
A match is like a practice session for her. She's said it. People normally have fun during practice sessions too. So I don't see any issues with her smiling

I pity the soul who dislikes the sight of a smile or the thought of a player enjoying herself and engaging the crowd.

Anyways, JJ is not fake. It's her personality. She likes to get the crowd involved in the match, which can only be a good thing because it brings more excitement in the atmosphere.

It seems an odd thing to get annoyed about, someone smiling?

And what's with the 'we' and 'us' pronouns? Are you Borg?

I remember wondering whether she was being sarcastic with her smile and laughter
against Venus or whether she was simply enjoying herself.

The smile disappeared towards the end of the final set, though. I guess its
hard to smile when your losing.

But I think she's simply enjoying herself on court. She has
not shown any malicious behaviour on or off court.

Martina Hingis once also faced similar accusations (of mocking her opponents with her smiles)

I agree. She is also trying to copy Kim's split and seeking attention with it by prolonging the time to get up again and seems to be trying to take away the credit from Kim. Well, I have a newsflash for you jj, it's Kim's split and it'll always be. She is not even capable of executing it proparly. I can't stand her on-court behavior, nor her looking from outside to herself during interviews constantly (as well as on court). She comes accross as unreal and fake to me most of the time.
And I agree, her on-court smile isn't just the smile from a positive, relaxed and happy emotion, but from hiding "pain"/shame IMO, moreover she is executing the smile (to the contrary to Pierce) in a demeaningfull way "towards" the apponent. These are two reasons I can't stand her behavior and find her really annoying.
