Good win for JJ but there's no point in her continuing to play on if she's badly injured:(!

I really respect Jelena for playing when she is injured, unless like Ana , Jelena gives it a shot but it's just not smart. She only can make it worse :help:

Congrats Jelena :yeah: :hearts:

Congrats Jelena....but all my healing power to your leg(s). There is much concern in terms of her movement. Indeed far from looking good.

GO JJ:bounce:

Next round badly injured Jankovic will battle against recovering from injury A.Bondarenko who barely escaped even more injured Sequera due to retirement:tape::help:

But I hope she withdraws. It's better to be 110% for the US Open.

A lot of errors but the conditions there must be so tough, doesn't exactly encourage high quality tennis.
Humidity levels even late at night are punishing. Both players looked drained, Cara was keen to change her outfit during JJ's injury break.

I think it would be crazy for Jankovic to continue playing, too much of a risk for the U.S Open.

Bad luck to Cara:hug:but good effort.

The only positive thing is that she was very aggressive (for her standards) because of the injury.

Congrats Jelena. :yeah:

Even though I'm not a fan, gotta respect your spirit. If you wanna solidate your number one ranking with a slam, it's not smart to injure yourself further so you wont be able to play at the next slam. :awww:

3 and 3 against Black is not very good.

That's the first thing that came to my mind.

She really must have been severly injured!

Go home Jelena or some1 is going to send you home!

people are focusing on JJ too much, what about black?! what does this loss say about her career. the worlds best doubles player can only win a few games from a world class singles player at 10% :help:. i guess its true what they say, doubles is for people who cannot play singles :shrug:

What a ridiculous thing to say. Cara had an excellent singles career. She came out of singles retirement to play the Olympics so of course she's not going to be the threat she used to be. Cara did alot better in singles than Jankovic has ever done in doubles.

Ajde!

But she shouldn't be playing. The Slams matter. The Olympics are little more than a glorified exhibition, in terms of historical significance in the sport of tennis.

Well, maybe, like players such as Venus, the Olympics actually mean something to Jelena! :fiery:

I am a bit tired of everyone thinking they know better than her as to what she should be doing. Who knows where her game will be in 4 years? This is most likely her best shot, she'll have many more slams to compete in. If gymnasts for example can land on severely sprained feet and ankles, blown out knees, etc., I think it is great that Jelena is looking past the sore leg and out there doing her best. I imagine that if it is really that bad than she would pull out.
Come on Jelena! Even with her injury I think she is still capable of at least winning Bronze, and who knows what shape the rest of the field will be in after another rd or 2. In any case, whatever she decides, I am totally supportive of her, now more than ever.

Oh, and great win Jelena. Despite the fact that Cara is somehow villainized on this board, she is a very talented, accomplished player.

thats because jankovic doesnt care about doubles. im sure if she really wants to, she could become a good doubles player, but why would she want to do that? shes a great singles player already.

compare black to another doubles #1 like stosur, clijsters or raymond (all at or near their doubles peak, like black currently is) - they would have beaten jj the way she was playing no doubt.

You could say that about anybody but it is probably not true. In fact it sounds silly.

Singles and Doubles are different so some players peak at different stages of their career. I'm sure Cara when she peaked in singles could have beaten this so-called injured Jankovic today.
