JJ Flying Solo, Gets Gong

Posted by gauloises1 on February 11, 2010

So I don’t know where I was when this happened, but apparently Jelena Jankovic has ended her working relationship with coach Ricardo Sanchez.

According to this google translate of her latest blog, JJ is now travelling with her sparring partner and plans to have a member of her family with her at all times. Presumably to carry the stopwatch.

JJ also picked up an ‘Oscar for popularity’ as best Serbian sportswoman for 2009.

2009? Really?

Serbia has the same years as us, right?

Her outfit looked pretty great though:

You coachless sex kitten, you.

    I may or may not need her shoes but definitely do.

    the shoes are deffo very nice. the whole outfit is styling. I’m always amazed by how amazing she looks when she scrubs up. Go JJ.

    Thought that Jelena and Ricardo would have gone their separate ways as reported in 2009 but did not. Now, Jelena is separated from Ricardo. Wonder if that happened before Fed Cup where she played well against Russia when she needed to make that last push to win. Surprised I did not read this anywhere especially on WTAWorld.

      That makes me oddly worried that I made it up, but I’m sure I didn’t.

      Sounds like it was pre-Fed Cup to me, maybe during her injury week.

        this is absolutely baseless, but i think the parting was right after the whole AO debacle. it seemed as if she didnt like the way too knee-bendy service motion she developed during the off season.

        • gauloises1 said

          I don’t blame her if that’s the case, that service motion was AWFUL. I don’t know what they were thinking and it seems to have done her back in too.

          You’re never going to be Marin Cilic, JJ. So stop trying.

          • Master Ace said

            Seems like you, Mina, and I all agree on Jelena letting Ricardo go after her AO performace against Alona, who she was 9-0 against. She should have let Ricardo go early last year when Jelena was going through her personal issues which led to her not meeting expectation. Jelena mistake was in the 2008 offseason where she tried to bulk up after she ended the year on a high note capped off by a USO final and a number 1 finish assisted by winning 3 tournaments in a row during the European indoor fall season.

    “best Serbian sportswoman for 2009. 2009? Really? Serbia has the same years as us, right?”

    Why the puzzlement? The concept is the same as with the ATP’s Fan Favorites Awards: voting during the month of January for the most popular in the PREVIOUS year, and then organizing the awards ceremony in February.

    • gauloises1 said

      I was alluding to JJ’s less than stellar 2009. Best Serbian sportswoman for 2008 I could get on board with.

      But mainly I was just being flippant.

      • robert said

        Fair enough, but this IS a popularity contest, not the Best Of. I believe they’ve got a few track & field and volleyball gals with a more successful 2009. So the point is, even with her crappy year she got voted the most popular. Yay tennis.
