Seriously, I really hate to see her stupid behaviour in terms of the ballkids. This pisses me off.:o She is really trapped in some sort of superstitious shit in terms of this. It is pretty ok, as long as you respect others and not jelling to folks who are not responsible when you are playing bad. That's really one the things she should work on with some mental coach, because it not makes any sense to waste energy with all the stupid arguing.

Yeah I agree. Why is everyone exaggerating? I'm sure I read someone say "She continually bullies" the ball kids :spit: I think it's fair enough she can receive the ball from where she wants, I think it is always the right side. I'd be irritated if I'd established that pattern at the start of the match, and the kids still hadn't gotten used to it by the 3rd set :shrug:

The 2nd Law
Feb 16th, 2010, 11:53 AM
Yeah, it was kind of annoying seeing/hearing her tell them off, but the Eurosport commentator was making me laugh with his retorts :lol: And at the end she acknowledged that she'd been looking for things to blame.

schorsch
Feb 16th, 2010, 11:53 AM
Yes, she really vents her frustrations on the ballkids :o But its actually the umpire's job to manage the ballkids. Lang has called enough JJ matches by now to know which side JJ wants to receive the balls from just like Sharapova, but with her it's the right side. So, just instruct the ballkids before the match and it's all fine. It's not rocket science :o

But you see, heres your problem, you have no idea what you're talking about.

She told them to use the right side, and then started yelling at them to use the left side, whilst on the same side of the court.

There is a reason the commentator told her to shut up.

Uhm, she's the Empress, y'all are not.

AND when she goes for the towel to the left before her first serve in the game, she expects to get the balls there. In all other cases she wants the ball handed to her from the right side. Some people need to get to know The Empress better before they start bitching as if they were empresses.

One of Jelena's best quotes from 4 years ago...

"I don't know if I should say this, but the book I'm reading now is called 'Why Men Love Bitches,'" Jankovic said covering her hand with her mouth in an unsuccessful attempt to suppress her sing-song laughter. "I put it in my locker and a lot the girls come up to me and say 'Can you pass it on to me when you're done?'"

Yeah, and then David Mercer said he wishes she'd just shut up :lol:
Whenever a player challenges a call and she turns out to be wrong Mercer always goes on about it just being wishful thinking. Whenever the umpire overrules a call and it turns out to be a mistake Mercer quickly starts talking about something else. During one pre-hawkeye match the umpire called a ball out but the replay clearly showed that the ball actually was on the inside of the line. Mercer said, "I don't like this trial by camera stuff." The legendary Dan Maskell also always used to give the umpire a blow job no matter what happened - the umpire was always right even when he was clearly wrong.

Sharapova is one of the few who's always really respectful towards them. I've even seen her thanking them a few times, or atleast sort of nodding her head slightly to acknowledge them.
It's a little better on the men's side, with Federer and Nadal being gracious towards them, though apart from them, most of the guys treat them like slaves aswell.

Yeah she's horrible to ball kids. Some people here say that she's a diva. But she's not, she's white trash. She's the only player acting like this toward ball kids. Even real divas - Serena, Sharapova - are always nice to ball kids.

:eek: Is this allowed on here :confused:

That's right Serena's nice to ball kids but isn't so nice to lineswomen

Either you're delusional or you have a short memory :rolleyes:.

At least Jankovic would never do that disgraceful act :rolleyes: and one that will stay with Serena until the end of her life and I don't mean tennis life, I mean her life - she will always be known for it :wavey:

I love David Mercer. For me he's the best commentator.

He's hit-and-miss for me. Like I say, I do like how he tells it like it is, but his ott campness and excitable nature does piss me off sometimes.

Now that's what makes me laugh about him - somehow it doesn't annoy me.

I swear he says "plumb on the line" at least 20 times a match.

"Oh that's an awful challenge, that was plumb on the line!"
"It's been called out, but it was plumb on the line!"
"Smashing forehand, plumb on the line!"
etc ...

I do like him though :)

the only respectful players on tour are Rafa and Venus...no drama from these two whatsoever.Jelena and her coach are classless especially the way they behaved in Stuttgatt against Venus..they sunk very low during that match.

i was at this match. It was horrible. Everytime he would take his watch out Venus would stand there just a second more to annoy his ass off:lol:

I don't know if it's already mentioned, but Sveta had also problems with the ballkids in her match:shrug: Anyway Jelena wasn't so rude.

Correct, yesterday she ,,screams'' at one when he or she didn't get her wather.
At the end maybe it's problem in ballkids:tape::tape::tape::lol:

Zvonareva treated them badly as well. Yelling at them after she double faulted because they had to give her the balls quicker :tape:

Li Na (vs. Peer) too. Apparently, it only affect players who ended up losing their matches. :lol:

I saw Kuznetsova yesterday screaming at the ballboy to bring her the towel "Go go go go go!!!"

The commentator said she was a bitch to the ballboys and was utterly disgusted with that. But then again he wasn't too positive about Zvonareva either :lol:

No no, what you need to do, is listen to me and learn.

Yay, I've learned JJ is a "Serbian dog" :shrug: :o

one of the eurosport commentators just laid into her complaing said "i wish she would just shut up!!":haha:

David Mercer really dislikes Jelena. :lol: I remember during the Miami final, he was saying how he liked the fact Serena wasn't moaning about her injury and he said something along the lines of 'if this was a certain Eastern European player, we wouldn't hear the end of it!'

I always thought that commentators should be neutral.
Well, maybe I'm not from this planet.
But anyway, he is still just a one commentator, and JJ is just... JJ:lol:

Btw, Melanie was yelling at ballboys ALOT last week. I dont think these euro tournaments train their ballboys very well. Especially the model ones.

Your logic is interesting. So Melanie had problems with the ballkids last week. It means that Paris indoors ballkids were trained badly, in fact all the ballkids in Europe are bad. You generalize a lot, don't you:tape:

Being a bad ball-kid doesn't mean an adult needs to bully them.
