It has come to my attention that JJ has played almost every week since the start of the year. I just check the AO website for women's doubles and she's playing too? *will she ever get tired?*

One more thing, why isn't Ana Ivanovic playing doubles? :confused:

JJ should be taking a break after Tokyo, but yes, she plays virtually every week and usually some doubles too. Ana made a decision this year to concentrate on singles and isn't going to be playing that much doubles.

It seems so. At the end of the year she has again 28-33 events for sure. Tokio will be her 4th. So much like Serena in the whole '06-season:tape: :help:

i think since she's starting to do well (make finals of/win tournaments) she won't be playing as much.

JustDoIt why is it hard to believe, when she is taking that break :lol: :rolleyes:

I think that if she was alowed, that she would play Sydney and Hobart in the same week :lol: Now serious, she really needs to step off the gas a bit! I'm glad she will take some time off after Tokyo :)

she won't play indoors events after Tokyo so I think she'll definitely play Dubai (and Doha??)

SHE IS RESTING FOR THOSE TWO WEEKS. . . :rolleyes:

You know, she will like play, four weeks in a row...actually five with Tokyo!
So she will most probably need to rest.

Yes and also Maria Kirilenko made a deal with Vera Dushevina to team up for the year.

Jankovic reminds me of Clijsters 3 years ago in that respect; she plays better when she has 2-3 events in a row going into a bigger tournament (Tier I's, Slams). What I think she'll discover later this season is that she no longer needs all those tournaments to a.) keep her ranking up (I bet it's also partially instinctual, when she was losing every 1st round, she needed every tournament she could get into) or b.) to stay in shape/practice.

I'm looking forward to seeing her in the U.S. this summer/fall. Her game is a joy to watch, and her attitude on court is engaging.

Fantastic

I guess Jelena figures that as long as she is playing well, feeling healthy, fit and fabulous that she should keep playing. It does make sense. She will rest when she's tired. It's different for different players. Someone like Justine will break down if she plays more than three weeks in a row, but then you have girls like Jelena, Nadia and Sveta who like to play a lot. All four players get injured and play through them, but obviously Jelena, Nadia and Sveta have bodies that can withstand and tolerate the grind much better than Justine can. It's whatever each player believes serves them best in the long run, leading up to the important tournaments, or makes them feel like they are being productive. Of course, there are limits. If a player is injured and their condition can get worse, then they should definitely take a break. No question about that. I just hope that all these girls are being well-advised by their coaches, parents, mentors, therapists and/or trainers.

Patrova overplayed during the clay season, and she got injured.. She was ready for the french but then.. I know she's a great player but breaks inbetween schedules are important.

I know she has drive to climb the rankings especially she's so near! Plus, to have points added next to your name and an amazing feeling! But you don't need 30 tourneys to feel good. Justine did it with 12.

It´s a smart choice adding Tokyo and then resting

In recent years Tokyo had problems to attract the elite apart from Sharapova and Hingis and that might guarantee Jelena a point-wise-highly-decorated quarterfinal or even better

She is not forced to play what she plays and if she´s keen on avoiding European indoor events then it´s better to promote a tierI with her status of top15 and then maybe having cracked the top10 by then

IMO she´s in top-form and should demonstrate that as long as she can as she has nothing to defend till the US hardcourts in the summer

She wont have a THREE week break after Tokyo because that is very very doubtful!

She joins the likes of Patty in the "Tournament Whore Club".....former members include Hingis and Petrova.
