You mean like the English J sound (as in "job")? Oh my... Though I did hear that once from an American tv commentator. For English natives the safest is to pronounce J like an I (film) or a Y (clearly).

If nothing, we may see Ana T. soon winning some nice titles, cause Ajla definately helped restore her confidence or even set them to new heights. I knew this won't be easy, but Ajla once again found a way to lose the impossible. I swear, this girl will one day make it to the Guinness book of world records - and it won't be because of anything nice, believe me.

You are a little bit to harsh. All players from Ex-Yu countries have normally great physical predispositions and are also weak mentally since our mentality is based on too much emotions which is basically uncontrollable thing on its own.
However here and there some great champions would arise from such raw material and when such thing happen tennis world will shake all the way till top spots.
So all in all Ajla is playing great, I mean she is our new number one girl which rose faster than any other our player in previous year. I think we would see more interesting things from her in future and that is something nice to look for.
But like with all our players take some medicine if you want to follow their matches in finals lol you will need it – that is rule for all of them in general.

Don't agree on the bolded part - if you think it's uncontrolable go find some videos of Federer in his early pro years and you'll see it's not, after you compare it to his state of mind a few years later. As a youngster he was emotional to say the least, and not in a good way (if there is such a thing). He was cursing and smashing racquets, as if he is the next Ivanisevic. And then he (obviously) started working on his mental side and some years later it was hard to believe it was the same player. Going through player lists I'm certain we could find more examples.
But Ajla is here for quite some time now and she isn't showing any improvement on the mental side, as if she doesn't think it's important to work on it. I wonder if her camp is even recognizing this as a problem or they just write these defeats down to insufficient energy or miraculous and sudden rises in her opponents' games.
I know how our players can be (been following our tennis for some 20+ years now), but what strikes me is their inability (or lack of interest) to work on their own psyche, if nothing by just hiring a sports psychologist. Ana Konjuh seems like a genuine mental giant and she might turn out an exception that proves the rule (let's hope so), but of all the players we've produced in the past two decades, the fact that none of them are psychologically strong is in my view startling. Yes, we're quite emotional people, but not all people are emotional to the same extent (as would appear following our female tennis), so that cannot be the only reason.
