Jelena JANKOVIC: Take a 1 year vacation!

Is it just me, or does everybody else as well think JJ has lost her marbles?!

We all know how long seasons can be and for a veteran like JJ she is clearly lost.. she doesnt seem to be improving, her results over the course of the year are amongst her worst EVER. She is inconsistant, her fitness is good but her head is certainly NOT.

I think she needs to walk away...take a year off, take 2 even...tell herself to fnd a new direction, figuring out who she is outside of tennis and then once she has had that chance...come back and play fresh, have clear defined goals and ready to face the tour focused and determined.

Her tennis and her build will still be there 2 years from now...shes young enough to walk away and come back if she does so now. Her game is too good to not be back if she returned to her old way...she has it in her but i think she wants out...and she doesnt know how to walk away...

JJ leave. live your life...and come back soon as u once were, a talented mover, gifted athelet and on court magician... we love u...your better than this!!!!

Any opinions?

Re: Jelena JANKOVIC: Take a 1 year vacation!

Or take an extended break and come back when you're like 38?

Seems to work for some...

Re: Jelena JANKOVIC: Take a 1 year vacation!

Like I said a million times, she has already burnt out, at least mentally. She either take a break or continue playing until she retires soon.

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

Her and Ana both seem to have gone a bit lately and could both do with a break !!!

Jelena should get pregnant and enjoy life.

Re: Jelena JANKOVIC: Take a 1 year vacation!

What has happened to Jelena? Where is the girl I used to be a fan of gone? Regular Top 10, at one time #1. Now? A seemingly unstoppable slide down the rankings, alongside Ana, it appears. I must still love her deep down in my psyche somewhere, as here I am posting over a year after my last one. But only to ask - what on earth is going on?

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.

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!

Re: Jelena JANKOVIC: Take a 1 year vacation!

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

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!!!

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...
