View Full Version : Jelena Jankovic - The new queen of Australia

Jan 12th, 2004, 11:44 PM
This is the first time Jelena is directly in the main draw of a grand slam. Let's hope it will be first time lucky. She can certainly "make damage" if she plays the way she played some parts of 2003. :bigclap:
:bounce: Ajmo Jelena! :bounce:
Pokazi svima kako se igra tenis. :bowdown:
:woohoo: :rocker:

Jan 13th, 2004, 01:27 PM
Jankovic :rocker2: although she must learn how to finish a match and dont break in 3rd set-just for recor all her 3set losts
Lisa Raymond 6-2 5-7 6-7
Coetzer 5-7 6-3 2-6
Maleeva 2-6 6-3 2-6
Schiavone 4-6 6-3 4-6
Please Jelena overcome this and you could trully be a top20 player- i wish you best

Jan 13th, 2004, 07:35 PM
Best of luck Jelena!!!

Jan 13th, 2004, 08:29 PM
i think jelena needs to develop some sort of a weapon to overcome that 3rd set problem, she doesnt seem to have added anything when i saw her at adidas..

Jan 13th, 2004, 09:27 PM
Good Luck Jelena !!

Jan 14th, 2004, 03:09 AM
good luck jelena!!!

Jan 14th, 2004, 07:06 PM
Come on, Jelena! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:
Good luck!

Jan 14th, 2004, 09:17 PM
C'mon girl - you can do it! :worship:

Jan 15th, 2004, 07:29 AM
good luck ill be watching u;)

Jan 15th, 2004, 11:18 PM
i thought she played aussie open last year, reaching second round and losing to coetzer in 3 sets....am i right?

Jan 15th, 2004, 11:24 PM
yes she lost in 3 sets :( and she played great :( just unfortunate

Jan 16th, 2004, 01:05 AM
She plays Elena Dementieva first. If she beats her it gets way easier all the way to 4R where Petrova awaits her.
Very tough 1st match. :(
Jelena, attack that serve for God's sake!!!

Jan 16th, 2004, 01:32 AM
she doesn't have luck at all i mean look at other matches Grande-Craybass. and she plays 7th seed Jelena will need to play this very hard. I'm trying to be positive but right now i'm sad. Out of all these players. Maybe dokic was right- they seem not to like serbian players at all. She is ranked 83 she should be playing someone from 25-35 not 7th seed. Hope Dementieva plays afwul, worts she ever had. Come on Jelena!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Make them cry- go all the way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Brush their mouth-kick some ass.

Jan 16th, 2004, 01:37 AM
:eek: Elena vs Jelena in the first round :fiery: .
Tough opener for Jelena but she has the chance, at least it's not Henin, Davenport, Venus and likewise.
:bounce: C'mon Jelena :bounce:
Just not another 3 setter please :rolleyes:
Maybe we can finally see Jelena on Eurosport :drool:

Jan 16th, 2004, 01:46 PM
i predict tough 3 set match 26 64 76 for Jelena

Jan 16th, 2004, 01:55 PM
let's hope dementieva does like last year lost in 1r to barbara shwartz 7-5 4-6 2-6. Jelena will beat her the same :) :rocker2:

Jan 16th, 2004, 11:31 PM
I'm already getting nervous! Good luck Jelena!
GO!!! :bounce:

Jan 17th, 2004, 01:34 AM
Well she has about 70 points to defend from last year's Aussie Open. She better starts winning or she could even fall out of top 100. :o She deserves to be in the top 30. :mad:
Let's go Jelena!!! :woohoo:
I hope Dementieva has a really bad day, with a win over Elena Jelena would get 86 quality points. :lick:

Jan 18th, 2004, 10:22 AM
jelena can win this match, she is playing really well....go jelena;)

Jan 18th, 2004, 09:15 PM
Come on Jelena - now or never - break the ice :rocker2: if she wins this she gets 86+32 if she goes to 3rd round about 140 points come on Jelena make Dementieva cry. Make her wish she never came downunder. Hope to see u on eurosport. i've got exam tomorrow but who cares. You just do your best and win this. Also good luck to Zaric and Zimonjic! :)

Jan 18th, 2004, 10:40 PM
Maybe we'll see her on Eurosport!
Gooooo Jelena!!! :bounce:

Jan 18th, 2004, 11:41 PM
It's live on Eurosport!

And she leads 4-1 at this moment!

Jan 19th, 2004, 12:42 AM
6-1 6-4

Well done Jelena :)

Jan 19th, 2004, 12:45 AM

Great win for Jelena! :woohoo: :yeah:

Jan 19th, 2004, 12:52 AM
Great win, Jelena, I'm so happy! :banana: :yeah: :D :woohoo:

Jan 19th, 2004, 01:17 AM
Jelena :eek: :D

This is the first time I saw her play and i was v.v. impressed! Hehe, I'm a new fan...

Jan 19th, 2004, 01:40 AM
That was a pretty easy win for her... losing only 5 games. Elena D. never fares that well in grand slams, but I think that was a really impressive win for Jelena, and she's one to watch for the future!

Jan 19th, 2004, 01:50 AM
Thank you Jelena! : :kiss:
You really made my day perfect! :angel:
Don't stop there. See you in the 3rd round
:bounce: Go Jelena :bounce:

Jan 19th, 2004, 07:36 AM
Well, she said that her goal is QF at the Aus Open this year, and to be # 20 this year.
I am just so happy for her.
Don't you think she looks like Capriati somehow? :eek:

J. JANKOVIC>/E. Dementieva

6-1, 6-4

An interview with:


Q. 6-1, 6-4, it looks easy. Was it easy on the co.urt?

JELENA JANKOVIC: It wasn't easy on the court. The first set I played well, I didn't make many mistakes. I won it 6-1. But then she went to the bathroom when we finish the set, so I little bit got -- I cooled off and I was down 3-love in the second. Then I came back and was 4-3, 4-4, 5-4 and took the set.

But it wasn't easy match.

Q. Also, second last point, you took the racquet. What happened?

JELENA JANKOVIC: Yeah, my grip was wet from playing and my hand was also all sweaty. So I served and I was loose, so it just flew and on the court.

But I was not happy about that. It was a big point, and it just went out of my hand.

Q. The next opponent, your second round?

JELENA JANKOVIC: I don't know. I didn't see. I'm just happy with this win. It's my first win over a Top 10 player, so we'll see.

Q. Is this your biggest win in your career?

JELENA JANKOVIC: Yeah, it's my first win over a Top 10 player so it's my biggest win for now.

Q. Do you have good memories from last year here?

JELENA JANKOVIC: Yeah, last year I qualified here and lost in second round against Amanda> Coetzer>. I lost 6-4 in the third. But it was my first Grand Slam> last year, so I did a good job. I played five matches, I lost to Amanda.

But this year, you know, I won over a Top 10 player so it's better, and I'm still looking forward to the next matches.

Also, like in 2001, I won my junior title here so I have very good memories here in Australia>, in Melbourne.


you're first top 10 victory and for sure it won't be the last.GO JELENA!!!

Jan 19th, 2004, 04:17 PM
She looks like a very young Natasha Zvereva. Go ahead someone post
a pic from late 1980's - 1995. :)

Jan 20th, 2004, 06:15 PM
there's an interview with jelena @ eurosport site!!! (yesterday they put headline "kapros - key to success" :( but changed it today)

Jan 21st, 2004, 12:43 AM
The match will begin in less then an hour. We'll be chearing all the way!
Go Jelena :bigclap:

Jan 21st, 2004, 01:16 AM
Go, go, go Jelena!!!
Samo napred! :bounce:

Jan 21st, 2004, 01:21 AM
Who is Fabiola Zuluga will Jelena be able to beat her considering Zuluga is seeded player?

Jan 21st, 2004, 01:24 AM
Even if Jelena doesnt win, its great to see her as she looks fantastic! I found some great pics of her @ www.tennisbeauties.com Shes hot!

Jan 21st, 2004, 01:33 AM
I think you've confused her for Dokić, Janković is a cute girl, but I doubt she's on such site. ;)

Jan 21st, 2004, 01:51 AM
its 3-2 craybas but jelena has 3 break points:)

Jan 21st, 2004, 01:52 AM
3-3 go jelena

Jan 21st, 2004, 01:54 AM
jankovic is up 4-3:)

Jan 21st, 2004, 01:55 AM
Jelena, I have to go to sleep, would you be kind enough to finish this match quickly? :angel:

Jan 21st, 2004, 04:26 AM
Jelena You Sucks In All Her Third Sets Ever Played

Jan 21st, 2004, 06:35 AM
omg i can't belive she lost......what a waste

Jan 21st, 2004, 03:18 PM
Her 3rd set record is getting ridicolous. She has to do something about it ASAP.

Jan 21st, 2004, 06:05 PM
It was a very short reign for the new queen!

Jan 21st, 2004, 09:37 PM
She played such a good match against Elena Demantieva. I was sure that match with Craybas will be easy for her.
I don't know what happened :rolleyes:

She must change her attitude and start winning those difficult matches, otherwise she won't break even top 30.
And I really want to see her more on TV.

Good luck Jelena in 2004 :)
