Sure, she didn't have all that much competition but at least she beat Ana to it, which I'm sure was very sweet. :devil: She also got a Plasma TV as a gift from Serbian Tennis Association.

Jelena has been practising in Colombia with her part-time coach Ricardo Sanchez. She was hampered with a wrist injury but now it's healed and it doesn't bother her anymore. She says she's been working really hard on her fitness which was her biggest problem. Her first goal for the next season is to enter top 10. She will also play in the Fed Cup, while Ana Ivanović, surprisingly enough :rolleyes: , won't take part in it next year.

Jelena was also nominated for the Serbian female athlete of the year award, but it went to Olivera Jevtić who win silver medal in marathon at this year's European Athletics Championships.

Ana won Canadian Open Tier I :fiery:

true but the field was VERY weak for a tier 1, it looked like a tier 3or 4 with all the withdrawals, but jelena has been more consistant this year

I'm sorry, but winning that title was such a fluke! :o
Jelena played an amazing second half of the year. :D

I'm not surprised, Jelena had a terrific second part of the season, she reached SF of UO while Ana only won Montreal.
So IMO she deserves this award :yeah:

well deserved. Ana's year had a bad ending, the decline RIIIIIGHT after her first tier 1 (strange...) Jelena's year had a good one despite a horrible start.

Good thing for jelena. I've always thought that she had more natural talent for the game then Ana. jelena just has that edge, that fighting spirit, while Ana just seems lost when the roads gets tough during a match. however, Ana is still young, although in my opinion she stagnated during 2006, inspite that Tier I title. but who knows she did change coach in the middle of season, i sure hope that 2007 will be hers, as well as Jelena's...

I wonder where did the plasma TV disappear?
