Christ on a Bike, JJ

Posted by gauloises1 on March 3, 2010

So last night in Monterrey, Jelena Jankovic lost to Anastasia Sevastova 57 64 64. In the first round.

Kill me now.

    JJ did not play badly at all. Sevastova really took it too her and was really solid in the crunch moments. I thought she would crumble when it came to the “it” outserving but she did the job with considerable aplomb.

      Agree that Sevastova outplayed her but also Jankovic did hit more UFEs than normal and was defensive at crunch time and some of her net approaches were poor that gave Sevastova time to hit passing shots.

        it is interesting that a lot of “defensive” players are starting to,or attempting to, crank up their aggression; perhaps due to realizing their bodies cannot handle the pressures they are putting on their bodies; and thus starting to make a lot more errors. I certainly think JJ is one of those who have tried upping the winners quotient in their game,that, coupled with the crazy bulking up physically that she tried last year has meant everything is still a bit out of whack.

    I have said this on other blogs but I am beginning to believe in the curse of the WTA no 1. Serena has been unusually injured in making her comeback to no 1, whether by gutting it out at majors or playing in the few tournments she has been. Safina needs a doctor and a sports psychologist. Ivanovic and Jankovic need a sports psychologist, trainer and coaches or some common sense about the game that got them to no 1 in the first place. I don’t know, it just doesn’t seem like things are not going right for the women who have been no 1 since Henin left. Oh yeah, Sharapova was briefly no 1 first and then she stopped that summer and look how long it took for her to come back. Serena Williams at least cranked up enough points to stay no 1 for awhile. I saw that with Safina pulling out of IW, that it guarantees SW will remain no 1 no matter how she fares in Miami. So, getting to JJ. If her defensive game was working but her body was not, then maybe she needed to shift some things, like learning drop shots and ending points early.
