Re: Bojana Jovanovski

I'm of course not saying she shouldn't ever hit winners, when the kill shot is there you got to take it and make it. But when it's not there you can't force it.

Re: Bojana Jovanovski

Isn't it violating the rules to grunt like that?

Re: Bojana Jovanovski

OMG! This chick has the most irritating grunt ever! Hell, I'm one of the few who doesn't even mind grunting, but the noise Jovanovski is making is outrageous! It's far worse than Vika and Maria.

This is truly the only grunt that has ever bothered me.

Re: Bojana Jovanovski

I think it's a great grunt. It shows how hard she is willing to work and win the point.

But I agree with the mix up in her game. She has great footspeed, anticipation and rallying skills. But too often she goes for the kill shot too early in the point. Her power is quite average to be honest in comparison to some true BBBs like Kvitova, Na, Rezai etc. but what she has over them is this grit and determination to somehow slip a winner in after a long rally. She should look to improve her touch, finesse and volleying skills. It would help her greatly if she came to the net to shorten the points out instead of playing these huge long rallies that takes like 20 strokes before she finally hits a winner.

She is talented, no one can deny it, it's just a matter do you like her or not. She reaches 4th round of a GS and haters crawl out of their holes, nothing new for TF.

They had almost the same number of ues and Sloane ended hitting more winners than Jovanovski.

Re: Bojana Jovanovski

She isn't going to be a real threat with that puff serve. She is still a 2nd or 3rd rounder at best under normal circumstances.

I am sure previous grunts in history were characterized that way, today they are widely accepted.

THe novelty (of her grunts) bothers you now, but if you stick around long enough, you'll come around as others have done in the past.

They're not grunts. More like screams to scare the opponent. I don't complain about "grunting" in general but this is too much.

Actually there's a difference. A lot of players grunt these days. There's a standard and then there's this.

Case & point: When Azarenka first started grunting, the same criticism were levelled of her more melodious, longer grunt, compared to Sharapova, who was the "standard"(for lack of better word) at the time.

Today, both are accepted as 2 varieties of grunt; Bojana's grunt, still at novelty stage and confronting issues that come with it, will also be accepted overtime if she stays around long enough.
