Yes, this is GM worthy. We can talk about how much they hate each other again!!!!!!11

Oh, and the Serbian team will consist of Bojana Jovanovski, Aleksandra Krunic, Ana Jovanovic and Tamara Curovic.

Canada went from being the underdog to a slight favorite. I could see Aleks or Rebecca beating Bojana in one match, and if not, Canada winning doubles for 3-2.

The problem is not only their personal relationship, but even more the problem with Serbian tennis asociation, which is a mess, and most top players are against the current president. They are better of to stay away from that stuff.

That would be very stupid on their part. STA is a mess, just as all the other Serbian sports associations (and everything else in Serbia), but you can't privatise it as Srdjan wanted to.
As for the girls, I doubt it has anything to do with the STA. Ana's team never liked her to play for the FC, so that's nothing new, while Jelena's lost in space.

Well Ana we knew she wasn't playing and pulling out of Feb Cup yet again. So it's didn't try against Russia, pull out, and now pull out again.

What's the reason for JJ pulling out though? That she's playing crap and wants to let Serbia have a better chance of winning? :rolleyes: Although to0 be fair she has been the one stalwart up till now and I remember when she pretty well died for her country 3 or 4 years ago - but was again the only top player from Seerbia playing.

It's a shame. JJ/Ana were occupying the #1 and #2 rankings in the world a little while ago - yet Serbia has never been where it should have been.

No. :lol:

She said that she feels like she needs time to practice and finish her preparations that were affected by the eye surgery during the off-season. She's disappointed by her AO result and says she's in bad form so she chose to skip FC this time and practice in the US instead.

In the end she adds that if her form improves she might join the team. :lol:

What did she say, do? I really can't remember. Empress rarely mentions other players, she only praises herself while vaguely hinting others are not as amazing, which is obviously true.

BTW, Jelena also skipped FC during her famous 2006 slump.

No matter what she announced today, Jelena "drama queen" Jankovic will very probably change hers decision in last minute and play this match next week, so Serbia will win :shrug:

Some people connecting whole situation with yesterdays elections in Serbian Tennis Association, but in reality Ivanovic announce hers 2011 schedule (with Pataya) several months ago, and Jankovic is much close with new/old Tennis Serbia president Slobodan Zivojinovic than any other Serbian tennis player.

But if this is for real, nobody have right to complain anything about this JJ decision. At 25 she already played 30+ Fed Cup matches in singles (40+ overall), and of all TOP players only Schiavone playing so often and permanently for hers country :shrug: In that case I guess last point in doubles will be crucial, and will decide winner.

OMG - you answer I think, I don't remember, obviously had something to do with. You don't have a link and you don't have a clue. You completely make up something and then say she's a hypocrite for something you completely made up. And it's not the same if Snezi or someone else criticises Ana. Thjat's like calling Serena a hypocrite for having a go at someone because of something Richard said and saying it's the same thing. And as for making up that the fistpump impersonation in Madrid is anything to do with the Fed Cup. :lol: The impersonation was because of Ana's OTT in your face fistpumping you idiot. Everyone knows the reason for that.

Get your facts straight before leaping in and calling someone a hypocrite for something they never said or did. Jelena has never had a go at Ana about Fed Cup. And Fed Cup is actually the time that they are BFF.

OK you've found a link. It's hardly having a go and she says it's disappointing. If you really think that is such a dreadful thing to say it was disappointing and would have been nice to have Ana there when they are fighting to stay in the World Group.


It would have been nice even if Ana had just been sitting on the bench and supporting the team, even if she felt she could not play. If we play with the strongest team, we can beat the best. That is why it is disappointing Ana was not there. But it’s her choice

I don't think you're in a position to judge if she's being a hypocrite or not since you're not familiar with the on-going saga between these two and comments which have been made in the past(on this one occasion even her mother felt free to comment on something which was not of her concern. Can you even imagine the situation in which Ana's mother is saying something negative about Jelena to the press? They so crossed the line. Add some previous comments made by Jelena (this "mental game" was going on for years) where she's implying Ana was not showing enough devotion to her country etc.

I'm sure you know nothing about this but some of us do. I can't stand nationalistic discourse, especially when it's being used as a mean to achieve something.

No I'm not in a position to know everything said behind the scenes but I didn't accuse any player of being a hypocrite. Now there is a link quoted. But I still don't think saying it would have been nice to have Ana there was actually Jelena having a go at Ana or trying to be nasty.

Like I said, there's so much more to it and surely I'm not basing my opinion on this sole article. You can be sure of that. I used to like Jelena but not anymore.

Right now it can go both ways. She can show up and play (risking her career or life :lol:) or not. Let's see what happens.

So it's alright by you to call a player a hypocrite based on rumour and what her mother and others say and what might have gone on behind the scenes that you have no idea of.

The rest of your post doesn't make any sense. Sorry. Lots of these comments were made in serbian press only. She gave more than few interviews and she always felt the need to stress out how she's being a true patriot, taking cheap shots at Ana while Ana never ever mentioned her.

So you make your own interpretations that she was criticising Ana and based on your own interpretations calling her a hypocrite. All she's said is she's a patriot and in the link it was disappointing and would have been nice if Ana was playing or supporting.

As far as not showing - and this is me saying it not Jelena. There is a big difference when Ana didn't show up. Serbia had got into World Group 1 and were fighting to stay there and had one player already committed to playing JJ.

Now they are out of WG1. Their best player at the moment has already pulled out. Plus JJ is in really bad form. I can understand her pulling out and there's nothing hypocritical about it.

The point of those things she said is she was proud of representing her country and a patriot. What's wrong with that. Most sportsmen and women - it's the proudest thing to be picked to play for their country. They say it all the time. I can't overstae how thrilled I would be if ever I was any good at anything to represent my country. It's quite natural and there is nothing hypocritical about that. You interpret that in a twisted way as a dig at Ana and based on your interpretation call her a hypocrite.

The rest of your post is YOUR OWN OPINION. I couldn't care less about stupid Fed cup, so I don't care if Jelena shows up or not. I was only trying to prove my point using her own sense of logic here. That's all.

At 25 she already played 30+ Fed Cup matches in singles (40+ overall), and of all TOP players only Schiavone playing so often and permanently for hers country :shrug: In that case I guess last point in doubles will be crucial, and will decide winner.
A balanced, thoughtful and coherent post from Cp6uja. :eek::eek: I'm so proud of you! For once all Anci fans should stop trying to start drama and listen to him.

The point of those things she said is she was proud of representing her country and a patriot. What's wrong with that. Most sportsmen and women - it's the proudest thing to be picked to play for their country. They say it all the time. I can't overstae how thrilled I would be if ever I was any good at anything to represent my country. It's quite natural and there is nothing hypocritical about that. You interpret that in a twisted way as a dig at Ana and based on your interpretation call her a hypocrite.

No. Read again or better - drop it.
English is not my first language (not even my second) but that's not what I said so stop putting words into my mouth, please.

If you love your country that much and you want to be of some help, wouldn't you wanna pay taxes in your own country?
No? :o

Spare me the talk about patriotism, please. Ana has refrained herself from those kind of comments. She knows it would be lame. It's LAME.
In my country any kind of nationalistic discourse is a mean to gain support from general public. Nothing more.

I love my mom, but do I go around screaming how much I love my mom like nobody else feels the same about their mother? WE ALL LOVE OUR COUNTRY, no need for bombastic and utterly tacky self-promoting comments. That's the bottom line.

Jelena made some comments in the past, now it came back to bite her. Fact.

Case closed. Seriously.

it was jj's mother who said retarded things about ana and the fed cup. jj herself didn't do exactly the same from what i know, but what she did say shows that she is entirely in agreement with her mum.

i can understand frustration from jj and her camp, though. since she never stood a chance to win a slam fed cup has always been her only chance for glory. but she can't win it alone, so they all had to criticise ana for not doing enough to help. it was stupid that she insulted ana with her fistpump imitation, though. but then they now have bojana too, so perhaps there is hope.

it would be hilarious if jj eventually shows up and plays, though. i can see it happenning - "oh, i love my country so much i couldn't sleep after my decision not to play, so i changed my mind".

Speaking of Ana, they're showing her in the box during the Federer-Djokovic match, and she looks happy and even more gorgeous than ever. Good to see she's gotten over her tough loss.

I like FC - it gives you a chance to see top players live if you live in a country without a big tennis tournament, and it often features interesting, even quality matches because some playes thrive in FC matches, playing not only for themselves but also for their teammates and country. So I think Fc's cool.

Now Serbia has some good chances to win it.

Well, Jelena and Ana just waiting to beat Madagascar or Vanuatu in group Z, year 2015.
That would a epic win for Serbia.

Goodness :lol:

Ana has left a gap in her schedule after Miami which is presumably for FC. Jelena imo is more than entitled to skip this one given her current form. My only issue here was the comments of Snezana last year, but why dwell on it - how much did it bother Ana? Not so much.

You can't blame Baby Anci. The mere THOUGHT of playing her caused riots to break out in Canada. Even with the matches in Serbia, the authorities feared for her safety.

If Wozniak was match fit I'd give Canada the edge as favourites, but I still think Serbia have the edge. Jovanovski will be expected to win her 2 matches, and Krunic has been steadily improving and I could see her beating Wozniak right now with no match play, or Dubois who can be susceptible as more of a counter puncher.

Hopefully Becca will bring her A game, and the others ready to play - Aleks and Steph usually do perform well when playing Fed Cup, so fingers crossed they can play well too :)
