It's like a generational change coming up. JJ being the weakest of the old generation is always the litmus test.
If it is the case, then others will fall as well, like zvonareva, kuznetcova, schiavone, stosur, even sharapova.
This may well be the last year for jj, unless she's delusional.
Yes, I think she'll retire by the end of the year. I'm also suspicious about Zvonareva, I can't see her getting back to goo form. But Sharapova will soldier on and wait for her chance.

I should stay away from GM. I started badrepping and reporting people. I'm too sensitive today, I think I'll be banned soon.

Mona is overrated. Believe me. In tour we have dozens players like Mona.

Re: Jelena Jankovic Cheering Thread - - Volume 12

I don't know what to say. Barthel is a talented girl, I wish her all the best. I never said that but maybe JJ should consider retirement. Of course if she doesn't care and wants to become a journeywoman and play on Hantuchova-level or sth, nothing wrong with that but if she feels constant disappointment she should make some decisions. I mean, it must be hard to fall like that from the status of top 10 player and get lower and lower. Money should not be a problem anymore.

Re: Jelena Jankovic Cheering Thread - - Volume 12

I like Angie, but even JJ in bad form (bad better form than form from Miami and IW) would look like Graf in match against Kerber.

Proves you are a true champion if you can come back from setbacks like they had, and mix it with whoever is out there.

I don't think jelena has got that toughness. Can't see her coming back.

there was a debate few years back as to who was greater, jj or dementieva.
I always thought jj, but from this perspective, I was wrong. You have to be really special to be up there year after year after year.
Unfortunately, I think Jelena was over as a relevant top player the moment her 2008-09 preparations failed and her slump started. I'm not trying to sound smart or something, but even when she was at her best I had a feeling that she was not a player who would have a long career. Just like she's never had the killer-instinct, she's never the drive that keep players on the tour and helps them surmount obstacles and throwbacks. Perhaps her body wouldn't be able to keep up with her kind of grinding game either, but the main thing is that she is not truly willing to fight her way back, she obviously doesn't feel like doing it. Which is quite a shame since she could've won some more tournament and played some more great matches, but she's most definitely not Dementieva. I love Jelena, she's the way she is, but comparing her to Dementieva who managed to find both will and stamina and discipline to last so long at the top or near-top, would be insulting to Dementieva.

Pffft, that's nothing compared to 2007-08 when she was actually beating people's faves so they couldn't wait for her to slip. Now hardly anyone even notices her, but some of them will never forget her 2007-08 reign of terror over their faves.

Re: Jelena Jankovic Cheering Thread - - Volume 12

Well, I cannot say that I'm that surprised. Mona is playing great tennis right now and her 2round battle against Vika was obviously a first strong argument for a possible win against JJ here in Miami. I hope Jelena is able to stop her obvious downfall, but well, it doesn't look good atm.

I can't believe what I am seeing in JJ - in fact we never even get as far as seeing her these days ...

Re: Jelena Jankovic Cheering Thread - - Volume 12

It hurts a lot. That's all there is to say about that. I know I keep saying I'm done as a fan, but there's something in me that really just wants to have faith in her, it sucks. I wish her the best.

You know what sucks even more? Having Radwanska as your other (somewhat) of a favorite. I love Aga, but come on. She'll win titles here or there, but probably never be a force on the tour for reasons that can't be changed now. She's playing probably the best tennis she ever will and she's getting beatdown by Azarenka. Women's tennis is really uninteresting at the moment. There is no one interesting that is relevant. I tried to give Kvitova a chance, but...just can't do it. Wish it were Lucie there, instead of her.

Why do all of my favorites suck? Honestly.
