Jankovic to quit Pavel, says tennis is no longer her top priority in life...

http://www.mondo.rs/s209775/Sport/Sp...prioritet.html

"Before my tennis was a priority, I was 100 percent focused on it, but the older you get, the interest for other things. Now I want to spend more time with friends and family. Of course, this does not mean that my career is over, I would love to be on top again, "conveyed the" Journal "Jankovic statement.

"Pavel was in London with me, but I'm not sure if we will extend cooperation,".

Hmmm... who would have known by the way she has played in the last two months... the motivation is gone I guess...

"more mature interests"

And I was a fan of her

Now she is just interested in getting a TV career it seems

I feel bad for her fans. It sucks when you come to the realization that you care more about a player's results than they do.

wow...shocking. but honestly im not surprised, she doesnt have the fire like a sharapova or williams. she so talented...very talented and at one point it was ridiculous how much control and veriety she had...its a loss for all of tennis and its really sad that such talent is not realized...best player never to win a slam for sure....

this bitch annoys me....a player with her abilities has no excuses not to win.

What a huge loss for tennis. No doubt she was the most inspiring, creative player there ever was. Like, totally, ever.

Re: Jankovic to quit Pavel, says tennis is no longer her top priority in life...

another statement id like to make...Jelena has made to many excuses, made too much fuss and has lost sight of what made her one of the best. her movement her veriety and her defence...all of her best assets she has lost one by one until the player we see today is no longer the player that once was..its SAD

it looks to me like instead of playing her game she listened to all the idiots who told he she needed to change everything about her game...when really her game was great. sad!!!

Re: Jankovic to quit Pavel, says tennis is no longer her top priority in life...

What a bitch With that serve and improving groundstorkes(like she has in 2008) she could have won RG...she's really stupid...I care more about her results than she.
Jelena better retire than losing all the time in 2nd and 3rd rounds.

As someone already posted, disappointing for her fans. But it is her life, she reached a point where she feel it is time to move on to another phase of her life.
