The Serb also complained of ‘feeling too heavy’ following weeks of intensive training during the off-season.
“In the beginning, I felt really different with my body because I got a little bit of muscles and I felt heavier on the court,” she said.
“I was always a certain weight and always my best weapon was my legs. I always moved and I had the anticipation and I was always on the ball.

This is not an excuse. If you say that it is an excuse then you are blind, just look how she is running.
Then, I think she got more muscles in order to be more powerful. Because she was an awesome "counter-pusher" and her team wanted her to be stronger and more powerful, they wanted her to have "a killing shot". Now she is not the counterpusher she used to be and she doesn't have "a killing" shot, she has not confidence, she has nothing, she loose. That's simple

I think Jelena is good for tennis.
If you want to watch kind of matches like Serena vs Safina (AO 09) again and again then enjoy it.
I don't say that Serena is a ballbasher but in the top 10 they have all a similar game, jelena is an exeption, before she could get a lot of balls back, and that's why Jelena vs Serena (USO 08) was way more interesting than Serena vs Safina (09).

Now I understand that lots of you dislike Jelena because she was #1 without a slam. But once again, that was not her fault.

Jelena is really good for the game. I remember that when she lost to serena (us 08) you were ALL saying that she is awesome and that she will win a slam (there was even a poll made by someone who wasn't a jj fan who asked when she will win her first slam). You always change your minds, and I know that in 5 months you will all like her.

Ever since Justine came down with her virus, I began to think that perhaps Pat Etchuberry's traning methods were not really good for women. Sure, Justine did get stronger and it helped her game for awhile. Eventually, her training efforts caught up with her which probably caused her illness. After her recovery she left Pat and trained with European trainers and had her best year in 07. I am afraid Jelena is suffering a similiar fate as Justine. She needs to go back to her real body and game. If she would improve her serve, and have her former game style, she could be much more successful. Get away from Pat Jelena!

I remember in 2007, at the US Open QF, after her loss to Venus, she gave a short on court interview and a lot of Venus fans were praising her saying she was sweet to do that as she wished Venus good luck in her next match...It's all good as long as she keeps losing to them...

Why is someone always causing drama? Jelena has always been good for the game. I was one of the few who thought she deserved her number one ranking by playing her butt off. Whether being number one without a slam is good for the game is a totally different issue. For me, I don't see anything wrong with it but I could understand how other people may feel differently. She is one of my faves but I don't get offended by what other people say and I can criticize her as well. No one is perfect, not even Jankovic. She is going through a rough patch, she is playing poorly but she'll bounce back.

Whenever a player has no power in her game ...she is a smart player , what a load of bullshit !!!. There are plenty of no-power players who dont play a smart game people who think the contrary is foolish ..

Players who don't hit hard and have a killing shot need to have another weapon such strong point construction or certain clear tactics against other players, otherwise they probably wouldn't really be winning matches in the first place.

I hope that Jelena sticks around the 4-6 ranking for the rest of her career.
I really thought she was entertaining and good for the sport in 2007 and early 2008,but once became number one and her ego inflated, she got annoying and seemed undeserving in the eyes of many to be #1.
I just don't like her in the top 3 for some reason. She was more effective around #4. Sorry if this made no sense. ;)

Her game is fine to me, but I just don't like her on-court behaviour and what she says off-court. She is repeating and repeating that she finished as No. 1 last year, I just think it is pointless now. Everyone knows she did.
I also disaprove her injury time-out's which she uses really tactically. I just don't think a good sportswoman should do that. Also, she hardly gives credit to the other players. THAT'S what I criticze about her - not being attracted by her game is my personal opinion, but should not be part of rating her game.

I think she adds something to the tour, but I would not miss her personality at all, seriously!

Mikey.
Mar 15th, 2009, 04:21 PM
Yeah but it doesnt mean that they are "all" smart players , and doesnt mean that powerfull players are "all" brainless ..its foolish to think that .

I never said that at all.

Players like Serena wouldn't be the best of her generation if she was not a smart player. She is a smart player for sure, but her strengths mainly lay in her power and her ability to keep points short. Players like Jelena rely on point construction and their movement, and in some cases drawing out the point for longer periods. It's easier for a player to hit two or three shots in a rally and win it with a winnner than winning a point by constructing it with many shots to draw out an error. So generally a player like Jelena would be thinking ahead further in the rally to construct the point as well as constantly not playing into the strengths of her opponents game. Where as the power player will usually go for a winner any time they see an opening to try and keep points short.

This definitely does not mean one player is "smarter" than the other one, these two types of players have smarts in different departments. The power player is generally really good at noticing when there is an opening for a winner or a chance to move to the net to put a drive volley away. The counter puncher is generally really good at getting a lot of balls back, playing balls which their opponent doesn't like and hitting shots which take on a certain pattern to win a point.

If a player was not "smart" and had neither a big weapon or the ability to construct points then they wouldn't be a very successful player in the first place IMO. Jelena would be one of these at the moment. :lol:

what scares the most is her atitude towards the situation, which is very negative... for example when ana was in a big crisis last year, her statements were very positive all the time - "i'm learning from this", "i have to work harder", "the results will come"... at this point some of jelena's words make her look somehow lost in space, as if she doesn't know what to do at the moment!

i hope she'll be back to her old self soon, but judging by her current frame of mind, it doesn't seem it will happen that soon... i am affraid she is in for a free fall down the rankings... i sooo wish i am wrong, but that's the way things look now...

Mar 15th, 2009, 05:01 PM
Mentally she's allowed the new body to convince her that new training is causing her dismal results. She needs to be patient and get accustomed to the change in her body, work on her serve and movement, and stop being negative. I believe Justine went through a similar slump after training to become physically stronger to compete with the higher echelon of the tour. It's really difficult to learn how to play tennis a different way once your technique and game is already developed. At this point Jelena shouldn't put her head in the sand. She needs to figure out a way to start winning.:)

JJ must be kind of disappointed that her hard work during the off-season didn't pay off. She should go back to her basic game and forget about that at the moment. Her movement in the match is really horrible. Her defence is just gone.

Yes. And Yes. And that's obvious. As obvious as that the players who do not rely on the power of their shots, on their height, on their serve, yet who get to the Top are on average playing a far more intelligent and varied game than those who do.

I keep hearing that JJ is not the same player from last year and I don't know where this bull is coming from. She may not be the same player physically but she's still the JJ who plays better at the end of the season.

Yes I agree that JJ is losing to players she would not normally lose to and in earlier rounds than she should be, but this was bound to catch up on her eventually. She's always played this way earlier in the season to me, but has been lucky enough to scarp out matches, but that usually catches up with you and with all the tennis JJ plays it's not surprising.

Remember people she's never won titles earlier in the season so this while disappointing to some, is not surprising to me. Also one would think they would learn from Justine's experience at Pat E'. Bulking up certain body type is not always beneficial and JJ is paying the price for thinking she need to muscle up to win the important tournaments. That's not the answer at all, what she need to do in believe in her game and herself and work with what got her to the top.

Would anyone care to post a before and after picture regarding her new weight? I don't see a lot of difference---is is more than five, less than ten pounds?

I can think of other players who have changed more, one direction or the other, without it even being mentioned as affecting their play. I remember that Henin went from 126 to 132 for one year, then back again---was that a similar experiment? Does it really make that much difference?

jdyshrky
Mar 15th, 2009, 08:40 PM
Can I summarize?

1. Let's get it straight, Jelena is a great player. She didn't get to number one by accident. Everyone has seasons or periods where things just don't click. Remember she had that period in 2006 where she just couldn't win a match, that must have been an awful period for her so she's been through a lot worse. It's just the way things go. She's not gonna do a Nicole, don't worry folks.

2. I feel she plays too much and until this season, by her own admission, she never trained. Her body will change and things will feel different, she just needs to give it some more time.

3. This isn't a crisis by any means. Let's be honest, no disrespect to Jelena, but she is a total bullsh!ter. I mean that in the nicest way but you guys that watch her matches and listen to the things she says, you know what I mean. You have to realise she really likes drama and attention etc. She makes me cringe sometimes, it's all very forced but to some degree I guess that's refreshing to see on the tour. Annoying? Yes, but refreshing. So she exaggerates everything, okay so like 15 girls have had a better year thus far but she knows it'll all come together.

4. Doesn't she realise she's sort-of shooting herself in the foot, pretty much saying she has the confidence of a dead horse in a press conference. Maybe she doesn't have that Champion mentality. Yet...

Jelena Jankovic has a mental tennis problem. She doesn't have it mentally. If she did, she would work on her sorry serve and remain fit but not all muscle bound and slow. Jelena also woudn't be robotic out there and play so much tennis. It's catching up with her. SHE IS FATIGUED AND BULKY. AND HAS THE SAME BREAKABLE SERVE.
So again, she is a good player but doesn't have the mental head to win slams. The only thing she changed this year was from playing too much tennis and winning matches d/t speed is that now she is fatigued, playing too much and slow .

What are you talking about. Jelena stopped from being a tournament whore, to a player who is slowing things down, she is changing a lot of things on her game/schedule, she only needs patience, i think she will get back to form at some point. She can´t expect to see great results inmediately.

Listen , Ana and JJ may be fromt the same country, but they have very different personalities.

Ana is soft spoken, reserve even when she was doing really well.

Jelena, on the other hand, is very extrovert.


JJ deals with her problem the way her personality dictates. The same for Ana.
Each persnality carries with it pluses and minuses.

I would think it is probaly more difficutl to be around JJ at her lowest point than Ana, but you would probably want saty around JJ when she is winning.

I think you seem to be ahead of JJ on what to do.

She lost confidence in the new direction she has taken because it took away what makes her JJ: her personality.

Okay, apparently it's from a MADtv skit in which S. Williams is a superhero who's responsible for recovering Obama's B.A.L.L.S.

Oh Jelena, get it back soon. The tour needs you. It needs all of it's top players being healthy and playing well to make events exciting.

um, what would you call it then?

Honesty.
Some people just tell it like it is--some people are blunt--some people "wear their heart on their sleeve."

The "she was better than me today" answer is polite, but rather boring
