our hearts go out to jelena

At least you’re one of the tourney’s best dressed? We’re sending good vibes to Jelena Jankovic, who tried to play through her second round match against Kazakhstan’s Yaroslava Shvedova after learning that her grandmother had passed away the night before.

Alas, the always emotional player couldn’t cut through the noise, falling to Shvedova 6-3, 6-7 (4), 7-6 (6).

“You could see I was not happy on the court. I was really suffering,” Jelena shared during her post-match press conference. “I tried to think about my tennis, but I felt like I was so late and so slow.”

A fiery player like Jelena is bound to be affected by such off-court events. We wish her and Snezana the best, and hope that she bounces back soon. As you may remember, Jelena also spent some time earlier this year dealing with her mother’s health issues.

Meanwhile, Shvedova is one of a few ladies that can push through to the quarterfinals, but might fall at that point to Dinara Safina.

    There’s something about Jelena that leaves me with a bad taste in my mouth. She’s got good game, a good head on her shoulders, and a winning spirit; the only problem I have with her is that she can’t seem to put those three things all together at the same time. One day she’s on fire and the next she’s as cold as ice. I would love to see her win a slam, but I think she’s going to need to pull all aspects of her game together. One day, maybe next year, we’ll see if she’s put any work in during the off season.
