Re: Jelena JANKOVIC: Take a 1 year vacation!

Ken, good to hear from you again, trust you are well! Yeah, I kind of drifted away from JJ, & indeed WTF for a while. As I say, watching Sabine Lisicki (who I happen to think is very lovely!) has got me back into following the goings on. JJ got to No.1 on the back of her consistency, which was wonderful. All this bitching about being a "slamless No.1" is very tiresome, I have to say - something that is being aimed at Wozniacki at the moment of course. You get there mainly on your consistent level of performance. You just play, the ranking points system does the rest. You are not responsible for how the points & rankings pan out, other than by your performance on the court. You want to bitch about how the points are divvied out, write to the WTA!

Anyway, to see JJ currently sliding away is concerning. Can she recover? Of course she can, but is she 100% committed to doing so? I do wonder...maybe as I suggested, years of playing every tournament under the sun has caught up with her & she has lost that edge - burn out in other words.

Hi Richard, glad you're keeping well. You've dragged me out of semi-retirement to say hi. Not much interesting happens with JJ these days.

Oh, and it was 2007, not 2008 (just look at your join date ).

How things have changed in four long years...

It's OK GAGA, I know JJ has never possessed a 124mph 1st serve...there are some things I remember about JJ!

Has all that playing every tournament under the sun for the past 3yrs or so burned her out? Has that water polo player tired her out?? Is she really thinking of giving up as seems to have been suggested by alleged comments attributed to her?

Older JJ fans may recall that JJ clinic that was set up for her. Sounds like it needs to be resurrected!! Who was the psychiatrist?

JJ fans can only hope she rediscovers her love for the game & the fight.

And what has brought me back to following the women's game again? A girl that seems to be what Jelena was - Sabine Lisicki.


Im sorry who? Sabine LISICKI?!...i have to dissagree there. I dont see anything remotely similar to JJ in Sabine...JJ hasnt got her Serve, moves better (or used to) than most players including Sabine...is a brunnette not a blonde and is Serbian not German. lol Obvious i know...but they dont, on paper anyways, compare...

Re: Jelena JANKOVIC: Take a 1 year vacation!

I've been away a while...what happened to that mansion she was planning to build in the US? The one where the press were to be banned from, only for Jelena to invite them to a housewarming!!

Maybe she should go there...if built!!!

JJ seems to be fed up with it all. I think the vacation could help. But a year? That is a bit too long.

Good Lord - talk about a blast from the past!!!
And yes - Sabine very much reminded me of the old JJ that year in Wimbledon. Without the flirting!

Jelena should get pregnant and enjoy life.

I think she's been on vacation for the last two and a half years.
