There is also a rumor going on: it is quite possible that after The French Open, Jelena will let her coach Sanchez go.  Nothing had been confirmed yet but l always thought that there isn’t smoke without fire.


Jelena certainly needs a change of pace and fresh air. He did good things for her in the past, but maybe that the change she needs.  There is certainly a coach somewhere that will be perfect for her, a coach that will prove her what her abilities show: that she can be the best player in the world.


Because let’s face it, this woman has great weapons and can rules over women tennis.

After winning her first title in Marbella, Jelena had a lot to do. She had 2 titles to defend : Stuttgart and Rome.   With her rough start of the year, as fans, what we wanted to see was improvement.  And we did.


She couldn’t defend her titles but on 3 tournaments, she made 3 quarts, this is a lot better then losing in the second round, don’t you think?  Well, most of the match she lost came a bit as a surprise, and she suffered some inconsistency then, but she is showing more and more regularity.  She is on her way back to where she left last year.  She might a little more time, but i am confident that it just can get better.


And because of that, even if she fell back to the fifth rank in the world, she is still one of the favorite to win the upcoming grand slam tournament, Roland Garros. That could certainly be a great reward for all the struggles of the past months.


The tournament start next week and I wish that JJ will do a great tournament.  If she plays the tennis we used to see her play last year, and that she seems to get in touch with lately, I don’t see why she wouldn’t be able to hold the trophy after 2 weeks. 


Keep focus JJ, and show the world that you are one of the best.

Jelena is going to have a very busy month.  First, she is battling in the fed cup next to Ivanovic, Jovanovic and Krunic, to help Serbia make it to the world group for the first time.  Jelena mentioned in her blog that she likes the ambiance in this competition.


Then, she is going to Stuttgart to defend her title: title that she won last fall on a different surface.  Despite that, the Serbian mentioned that she fell like the defending champion anyway. 


Her mom, who is doing better, confirmed her presence at both events.  The presence of her family is really important to Jelena. 


And, right after that, she will go to Rome, one of her favorite city, to defend another title that she succeed defending last her. She will try to win there for the third time in a row.


It hadn’t been confirmed yet, but she is also supposed to participate to the new event in Madrid.


If you wish me to, i will keep you inform of any result or new information about our favorite tennis player during thise busy period.

Hello everyone,

I am new here, and i can easily volunteer to keep this community update on the famous Serbian Player. Seems you need a little catching up in here. But the problem, I don’t know how to make it short… so let’s see…

After a rough first 3 months, Jelena found her feet again on the red clay of Andalusia, in the south of Spain. I followed this tournament, very closely, watching almost every match and even though her regularity is still to be work on, she is certainly on the right track.

The first match, she was very consistent and the wind didn’t bother her on a match against the always tough player, especially on Clay, the Italian Francesca Schiavone. 6-2, 6-1. In the next round, Selima Sfar of Tunisia didn’t last very long. The Serbian was without mercy and the second set looked like a walk in the park for her. 6-3, 6-0. I think she even opened the match with an ace.

Things got a little complicated against another Italian, Roberta Vinci. Known to be very good on clay, Roberta was on fire that day, playing the best tennis of her life. Jelena was not as consistent as she was the day before and the match was push to the limit, 6-3, 3-6, 6-7(6) in the third set. A victory that certainly gave her confidence, since she won it without playing her best tennis.

Jelena still has problem keeping her advance when she gets the break. Her match against the dangerous Spaniard Medina Garrigues allowed us to witness a great amount of break points and break of serve, as a solid proof of what I am saying. JJ disposed of her opponent after a very exciting first set 7-5. Even the match at 4-4 was quite a task and she made it. Well, she was broke again, and broke again, and again… you get the pictures. 7-5, 6-2.

Jelena had a “rendez-vous” in final against the most promising Spanish player Carla Suarez Navarro.

The first set was a Serbian thing. A high % of first serve, it wasn’t as easy as it looked, but when JJ win the first set, usually, she win the match. But, Suarez didn’t have the same idea in mind and she pulled out some great tennis to keep her early break to force a decider.

As JJ escaped with at 5-1 lead in this third set, we all thought it wouldn’t last any longer, but, a little lack of concentration from the Serbian doubled by Suarez leveling up her game, the Spaniard broke the Serbian after saving a few match points. But 2 games later, our favorite player was back on serve and certainly didn’t want to let the Spaniard come back. It took 3 other match points, but on the fifth, she made it and won her first tournament of the year.

Jelena was very excited about her victory and hope to keep improving. ”I know I have not been playing very well during the past three months but after this victory I regain the self-confidence I needed.” Jelena took good care of thanks the tournament’s organization and fans: “The tournament has been wonderful, with a great location, the beach close by, ideal temperature and an audience that was fantastic at all times. I hope to come back next year”.
