Wow. Jankovic is angry with Federer for him taking on her and Novak ;) I love it...
http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/news?slug=reu-jankovicinterview_pix&prov=reuters&type=lgns

“Why should he even care? I don’t like putting my nose in other’s business.

“I mean, one thing I like about Nadal is that he is such a great champion, he is so humble, always has kind words for everybody, he is a role model for everybody,” said Jankovic.

“Federer is a great champion, I don’t want to get in a fight with him but why does he care, I really don’t understand. Why does he need to do that?”

Jankovic said Federer should not criticise fellow players. “I don’t think it’s nice to attack other players.

“If he retired, he probably had his reasons, he knows better. You cannot attack someone when you don’t have proof, when you don’t have a piece of evidence.

“There is no reason to offend him that way.”

If a track record is not evidence, proof, then I don't know how to call it.

I guess it's natural to defend your friends... but there is little ground to defend Djokovic in his quest for the career retirement slam.

Well I cannot disagree with Federer. Jankovic is a poor player who became #1 by fluke mainly because Henin immediately retired, Serena and Venus are too busy with doing other stuff than tennis last year and Ivanovic having a late season dip.
And I don't get why Jelena is defending Novak in that 'retiring' case because to me it's very obvious that he's the most pussy player out there when it comes to finishing matches.

Though I got to admit, Jankovic with no Grand Slams has no right to criticize Federer. But the way Federer is acting these days, I wouldn't be surprised if players finally ditch him and look at Nadal as their model. Djokovic will never have the respect of other players regardless of what he achieves unless he changes his ways.

his problem is not with finishing matches. His problem is he can't accept being defeated when everybody expects him to win.

Hell, I played a match the other day and had some backache in the mid of it. Still went for an hour, surely not moving perfectly, but for the fun of it, for my friend playing on the other side, or for the few good shots I could make before losing. And this guy in Montecarlo is paid tenths of thousands, has all the public of a semi watching him, and can't play 4 more games and simply lose? sore throat? can you get more pathetic than that?

So Jelena's point of view is that she can give her opinion on Rafa being more of a sportman than Roger, but Roger can't say his 2c on such a behavior?

Mind your own business, Jankovic tells Federer

By Julien Pretot

PARIS, Feb 10 (Reuters) - Roger Federer should concentrate on his own career rather than criticising others, Serb Jelena Jankovic said on Tuesday after being irked by the Swiss master's unflattering verdict on her number one world ranking last year.

Last month, former world number one Federer hit out at the way the WTA rankings were calculated, saying a player who has never won a grand slam should not be granted the number one spot.

Jankovic reached the top spot in the WTA rankings in August having never won a major tournament. She lost her first grand slam final to American Serena Williams at last year's U.S. Open.

The Serb has since dropped down to third in the world following a shock fourth-round defeat to France's Marion Bartoli at the Australian Open.

"To be honest, I do not like to talk about players, I really prefer to focus on myself," Jankovic told Reuters in an interview at the Paris Open.

She said she could not understand why Federer felt the need to hit out at women's tennis while his great rival Rafa Nadal, who took over from the Swiss as world number one, was so "humble".

"Why should he even care? I don't like putting my nose in other's business.

"I mean, one thing I like about Nadal is that he is such a great champion, he is so humble, always has kind words for everybody, he is a role model for everybody," said Jankovic.

"Federer is a great champion, I don't want to get in a fight with him but why does he care, I really don't understand. Why does he need to do that?"

Federer also led the charge against Jankovic's compatriot Novak Djokovic when he quit because of the heat in his Australian Open quarter-final match against Andy Roddick.

"I'm almost in favour of saying, you know what, if you're not fit enough, just get out of here," the Swiss said.

Jankovic said Federer should not criticise fellow players. "I don't think it's nice to attack other players.

"If he retired, he probably had his reasons, he knows better. You cannot attack someone when you don't have proof, when you don't have a piece of evidence.

"There is no reason to offend him that way."

Jankovic will open her Paris Open campaign with a first-round match against Italian Francesca Schiavone.

The interview was organised by WTA Tour sponsors Sony Ericsson.

The point is Faterer talks shit about others non-stop on his own initiative, while he is supposed to be the one with the experience and "class". So many people say he is so classy and so on, but he does nothing, but badmouthing everyone. He is nothing, but an arrogant, self-absorbed, spoilt idiot. If he does give credit to a player, you know he thinks the other one is a mug, except for Nadull. And even with him he started saying lame stuff.

See... example: Muzza has never said anything negative about Faterer and always gave him credit, no matter if he won or lost and Faterer went on to attack him.
JJ has never said anything about him before, if so only comlimentary, the usual boring ya he achieved this and that, otherwise maybe only who she'd root for in a Nole vs Faterer matchup, but thats as far as it goes.

No disrespect to Jelena? How is that helping any? Nadull would never say such a thing, as she said in her presser, why does Faterer have to do that, especially since in his sick mind he is the best thing ever to grace a tennis court? It's pathetic, imo. When you are young and you get your feet wet with the media, sometimes there's gonna be a stupid situation or two. But with time you learn from those mistakes and you know what you should say or not.

Federer said everything that most commentators were saying about the Joker anyway. That he does "dramatize" his injuries, he does have a massively high "dropout" rate compared to other top 5. his atitude on court is negative. His parents are a disgrace, and serb fans cause violence...

Last I saw, Federer barely insults anyone on the court, his parents don't say anything, he's never retired during a match and dropped out only once, and Swiss fans don't cause violence...

only your lovely djokovic is arrogant,nobody else.
he told he will be 1st in the world "very very soon" before his 1st gs final.that was 2 yeras ago,he is still 3.
he told he will beat federer in wimbledon last year,he was down in 2nd round.
he told, on the beggining of 2008,that he will be 1st on the end of that year.(precise,he told "some new players are here now,federer will be down this year"),he is still 3.
he insults other player with his imitation of them.

Since when are you not allowed to believe in yourself and say you're confident in your abilities and chances. If you dont do that you can just as well pack your things and go home before even stepping onto court.

A few years ago, we had only some weirdos sucking up to the Faterer "legacy" as if it was some sick unwritten rule. Hell no, this tour needs more players like Nole and Muzza getting it together and taking it to the top2 players and it certainly helps to take a confident approach to it, doesnt it?

This has got nothing to do with being arrogant, this is their life, they've got to believe they can eventually pull through, whats the point otherwise?
Also, as I said before, obviously when you burst onto tour you gotta figure out how the media works and what you should say or not, this is something that top players gradually have to learn.

About the Swiss fans, let me tell you something, yes, they are not as loud and yes, they might not be as roudy, but they're boring for the most part and if they dont see any results, they're disinterested in their players (Schnyder, Wawrinka). All they care about is "excellence", they dont bother otherwise. Most of the Swiss recreational players are snobs with big $$$ :o. Another thing is Swiss coverage which only shows matches if Faterer or sometimes other Swiss are playing even if they scheduled the spots well before.

The Serbian crowd often goes over the top, but at least they show passion and true support which often helps these players from such a little, poor country to fight through adversities such as you and Faterer present.

About the impersonations... Roddick has done them, Agassi has, Björkman. It's not like people complain about them, do they?

Was he not being asked about Andy Murray and whether Andy could get to no 1? Said something like - yes, but I hope if he does get to no 1 he does it by getting a slam - then the comment about the WTA at the time etc etc.

I mean fair enough, people get asked questions and they answer them. If they give an answer in a way that upsets someone then that person answers back, like Jankovic did here. It might make Roger think before he speaks next time - I doubt he gave a second's thought to her as a person when he said it - he probaby should have - hopefully lesson learned (or not!).

Who cares anyway. Where did all this nicey nicey stuff amongst tennis players come from anyway? It never used to be that way. The top players couldn't get two words out without mouthing off about each other. It was certainly more entertaining than the false masks so many of them are forced to wear now. The press love this sort of thing and would love to get back to the good old days, so this sort of thing gets bigged up in the media when it happens. Lesson - if you want to be a Mr Nice Guy be very careful what you say, even if you are being a bit dishonest.

Let's make this clear: Fed's statements about Djoker's fakery were among the most spot on comments from a tennis player about another one we've heard in the last decades.

That said, Fed has no business whatsoever in WTA, so Jelena is more than entitled to express her legitimate concerns about JesusFed's ramblings on matters far away from his field of expertise.

Go Jelena go!!!! make the arrogant whiny prick cry once again!!! :woohoo::woohoo:

I hope Roger never ever turn into one of the player’s who evades answering questions or plays the political correct card when he’s ASKED about his opinion on a particular issue.

Federer did not just dispense with his views he was asked a question and he responded HONESTLY, if you checked the Q&A in press conferences of tennis players ten years ago compared to now their far more honest……I think she’s actually shot herself in the foot if she thinks Roger should ‘mind his own business’ why is she talking about his Djokovic comment? by her logic isn't that between him and Novak?

Federer did not make a personal attack on Jankovic, he simply said that the format should be changed to ensure that those who fail to win at the highest level in tennis (slams) should not be placed on the summit of the game..that's a logical answer!! Something that McEnroe, Bjorn and Sampras all said, maybe she's pissed because she failed to silence her critics the best way by actually winning a slam.

Let's make this clear: Fed's statements about Djoker's fakery were among the most spot on comments from a tennis player about another one we've heard in the last decades.

That said, Fed has no business whatsoever in WTA, so Jelena is more than entitled to express her legitimate concerns about JesusFed's ramblings on matters far away from his field of expertise.

Go Jelena go!!!! make the arrogant whiny prick cry once again!!! :woohoo::woohoo:

It is his business when his match against Roddick is not shown for Jankovic Kanepi match is more important. It's crazy how these stupid meaningless WTA matches find their way to TV. Just let them get the equal money but never be on TV. Deal?

I think she’s actually shot herself in the foot if she thinks Roger should ‘mind his own business’ why is she talking about his Djokovic comment? by her logic isn't that between him and Novak?


Because she always gets asked about Nole and she got asked about that comment in the presser as well, so if she says he should mind his own business when it comes to badmouthing players, that obviously applies to every player he disses as well, now doesnt it?

...


that said Federer has verbaly bitch-slapped alot of people during his AO campaign, and look how that turned out for him...

so this kind of digs are well expected, even if they are coming from a lesser player
it's really hard NOT to be a lesser player compared to Federer, no?
does that mean one hasn't got a right to throw the same tantrums at him, in response??


alot of people are very hypocritical when it comes to their internet
correctness and values they bring here as oppose to those they express in real life
if at your highschool or college, an over achieving with remarkable grades student was to take a dig at some students that are not soo good or fail to achieve his academical highs for various reasons, laziness, lack of devotion, motivation or simply because of lack of skills...most of you would eat that person alive.

why? is she everyone's spokesperson?

I mentioned how she does have every right to defend herself, but she kept saying how she doesn't like to talk about other players, or how she doesn't like to poke her nose, and she is sort of doing the same thing. It has nothing to do with slams or lack of slams. I admit fed shouldn't have said what he said, but perhaps jankovic should just worry about herself and her game. You know, do what murray did.

I never knew that you would get so much stick for telling the truth. Federer's comments on Nole and Jankovic are spot on and you know it. Jelena is just putting up her defensive mode up right now, she is feeling the pressure in abundance. First she says to be number 1 is more important than winning a slam, then after losing in the 4th round of AO and consequently losing that number 1 ranking she says being n.o 1 is not important, and now she responds uselessly to Federer's comments. People get a grip, call him a prick, ****, bitch whatever you want, but if you look into his words and the context in which they were said you will realise that he was just being honest and saying it how it was. Deny it as much as you want, but his comments on Nole could not have been more true. Nadal I feel never answers questions honestly and fully, but with Federer you can make sure that he will speak his mind and speak the truth. Jankovic get that slam and then we'll start talking, and Federer stay the way you are. If being brutally honest and truthful makes you a prick then so be it. He does not suddenly call the press for a meeting to say these comments, he gets asked. I personally, want his opinion and not a lie. And a lot of you take his words out of context, in this case he did say no disrespect to Jankovic and to be honest I think the whole comment was really a criticism at the way WTA works. The guy is passionate about tennis and knows what he is talking about. If you refuse to see that, then that is your loss.

From this article

As for Verdasco? Well, I've always thought that a leopard can't change his spots - and he's always had a reputation as a bit of a playboy. In fact I've even seen him in action out on the town, getting girls' phone numbers - he's as quick off the court as he is on it!

But last year he trained with Agassi's former fitness coach Gil Reyes, a fearsome taskmaster who takes no prisoners. He survived the experience, and has become a much better player for it. He's certainly better than Novak Djokovic.

If he doesn't become a top-five player by the end of the year then you'll know that something has gone wrong.

02-10-2009, 06:23 PM
You'd have a point if she actually had criticized his game. Federer's remarks are far from being above criticism.

She did not criticize his game, whereas, he did criticize her ranking. Jelena did not make up the ranking system. Roger is turning into an arrogant, bitter loser. Djokovic looks to be in good shape, however, some people's physical make up prohibit them from adjusting to extremely hot weather. Didn't Novak have some sort of breathing problem that required an operation a few years ago? Perhaps he has a chronic health problem as Sampras did. And by the way Roger has 13 Slams, not 14 as another poster stated.

The moment Roger said it, I knew Jelena would react, because she's a mouthy kind of girl, and I also thought Roger should have not mentioned her name at all, or the WTA. I'm a huge Roger fan, but I understand why she is offended. She did everything within her power to win her matches that brought her the 1# ranking, and she did so fairly and by playing good tennis, she's not to blame that Serena or Venus couldn't care less anymore.

However, defending herself and defending Novak is quite different, and IMHO, there's no excuse for her actions. I'd like a reporter to ask her how she would take it if Ana reires against her in a semi final of a Major citing a sore throat, trailing and 4games away from losing the match.

it's true that the WTA ranking is flawed and being Kim and Amelie's fans;imo they did more when they got to their world # 1 rankings then Jelena has ever done so far.
Both Kim and Amelie knew that they didn't completely deserve it until both Kim and Amelie had won the 2005 USO and 2006 Australian Open and Wimbledon

Jankovic should shut up :retard:

wether right or wrong about Fed, her opinions count for nothing when she is some joke journeywoman player who hasnt won anything in her lifethis is a woman who delayed and stalled Venus in a match last year all the way and then complained to the umpire about Venus wasting time when she went to change a racquet, f'en ridiculous player.

So your opinion value something,what have you done in your life just cause you fan of Federer doesn't mean that his success is yours also.

jankovic is like fish you have to cut off the head to enjoy it

Actually in many parts of the world a fish head is the delicacy; so there you go, you must learn to never say things categorically.

I hate to say it but Jankovic is the ugliest girl on the WTA tour. And she acts like Roger does. Roger has 13 slams to back him up. She's got nothing. Oh well. Novak's shot himself in the foot by switching rackets, and Ivanoic can't serve anymore.

...


that said Federer has verbaly bitch-slapped alot of people during his AO campaign, and look how that turned out for him...

so this kind of digs are well expected, even if they are coming from a lesser player
it's really hard NOT to be a lesser player compared to Federer, no?
does that mean one hasn't got a right to throw the same tantrums at him, in response??


alot of people are very hypocritical when it comes to their internet
correctness and values they bring here as oppose to those they express in real life
if at your highschool or college, an over achieving with remarkable grades student was to take a dig at some students that are not soo good or fail to achieve his academical highs for various reasons, laziness, lack of devotion, motivation or simply because of lack of skills...most of you would eat that person alive.

But internet is an entirely different animal, no?

actually no

but the fact is he sow the seeds to this situation he's in today

he took a dig at Jankovic, Murray, Djokovic, and it can be argued that the things he said were true, etc, but with that kind of behavior you are creating for yourself an unnecessary bad blood, by this i mean bad blood with Jankovic and Murray, with Djokovic who started to rant to the press of the two is like chicken and the egg thing :rolleyes:
and when you fail, to live up to your expectations, and loss as badly as he did at AO (for me as his fan this is his worst loss), you don't need to have more people having the time of their lives while you cry at the ceremony, more people than there is Nadulltard and Mandytards and Noletards that is :D, and you also don't need that at a very vulnerable time in your carrier an WTA top 5 player or any professional from the tennis world questions or retaliates because of your statements.
What i think is that Jankovic had every right to respond to his previous rant, because she and Murray and everybody else has a right to do that.
And i would be a very much a -tard if i was to just now conclude this on the man: 'He may be the best thing this sport has seen, but is he a great man, a good person...it's doubtful '.

JUICY!!!

What a way to wake up on a Wednesday morning!

Roger, I haven't been warming up to lately.

As for Djokovic and Jankovic, even though I have a strong dislike for both, I thought they'd make a perfect match and lovely couple. Both always deliver on the tennis court, however, it is with loads of drama antics rather than the tennis proper itself. Jankovic, however, I'd give a bit more credit for she doesn't pull the match-retiring stunts. She's got balls!

And this guy in Montecarlo is paid tenths of thousands, has all the public of a semi watching him, and can't play 4 more games and simply lose? sore throat? can you get more pathetic than that?

Exactly! I think it was also another 4 more games to go at the AO with Roddick.

I think the crowd and media and public will give him his due credit and maybe win some sympathy votes if he had just stood there and double-faulted another 8 points and hit another 8 returning errors.

I don't think this is about Novak;)
Fed had a go at her recently, well the entire WTA basically.
She was the only one who spoke back.

To be fair to Roger, he did have a disclaimer "no disrespect to Jankovic" before his comment.

And also, you can't fault Federer for something that even fellow WTA players have brought up. Serena and Davenport in particular have expressed similar comments on Jankovic being #1 with no Slam. So I doubt any WTA players will join in Jankovic's crusade.

Did anyone watch when Jankovic was in her first grandslam final and she kept looking at herself in the big screen that shows up in the crowds and she'd fix her hair and smile...she wasn't looking into the camera..she was looking at the big screen image of herself

I did I did!:eek: she thought she was America's Next Top Model.

Jankovic reminds me so much of a tranny. I'm sure my drag friends will give me an earful for this, because they know they look way better than her. ;)

former and current players believe to be a joke of a ranking
it's true that the WTA ranking is flawed and being Kim and Amelie's fans;imo they did more when they got to their world # 1 rankings then Jelena has ever done so far.
Both Kim and Amelie knew that they didn't completely deserve it until both Kim and Amelie had won the 2005 USO and 2006 Australian Open and Wimbledon
she should stfu already and try to win a slam and back her ranking up whinning drama queen:mad:

At least Kim and Amelie got to #1 by way better performance, can't remember about Amelie, but Kim won 9 Top Tier events and reach a few Slam finals by then. Jankovic I believe only won 4 tournies last year, with only one big title.

In addition, I remember poor Hingis getting a lot of flak for still being #1 at the turn of the millennium with no recent Slams to boast (the Williams had won them all during that period). So if a 5-time Slam winner can get all that criticism, I'm sure it is expected that Jankovic will get that too, if not more.

"Camera! Lights! Action!" (Jankovic lurves this part)
Let the drama continue!

Though I got to admit, Jankovic with no Grand Slams has no right to criticize Federer. But the way Federer is acting these days, I wouldn't be surprised if players finally ditch him and look at Nadal as their model. Djokovic will never have the respect of other players regardless of what he achieves unless he changes his ways.

You have to win 13 GS's in order to criticize Federer???? Then, I guess everyone on this board should be banned. :rolleyes:

Mind your own business, Jankovic tells Federer

By Julien Pretot

PARIS, Feb 10 (Reuters) - Federer also led the charge against Jankovic's compatriot Novak Djokovic when he quit because of the heat in his Australian Open quarter-final match against Andy Roddick.

"I'm almost in favour of saying, you know what, if you're not fit enough, just get out of here," the Swiss said.


When Federer said that, it was in a long talk about being in favour or not of medical time-outs, not at all about Djokovic :

http://www.australianopen.com/en_AU/news/interviews/2009-01-27/200901271232977497765.html

(look the question :
Q. You're not a man that normally calls for trainers. Do you have a view on the habit of players to call trainers and possibly stop matches in the flow of the matches currently and whether that's right or wrong? )

Typical journalists'work.

http://www.radio-canada.ca/sports/tennis/2009/02/10/002-jankofederer-mardi.shtml

Let's wait a little bit :

quite soon Federer will have said that Djokovic is impotent and that's why he could never f..ck Jankovic !

And he was so-called "gentleman" !

Look how horrible this man is ! :haha:

02-11-2009, 04:08 PM
I'm double-minded here. To begin, the WTA is not tennis. So, being #1 or #100 matters not. As the tour SO intensely promotes, its all about looking good on the court...and finding a "hero":rolleyes:..whatever that means.

Their ranking system is a joke, and hence, Jankovic reached the "pinnacle". However, Federer again shows that when it comes to tact, the man has the subtlety of an atomic bomb. And, again and again, his defenders claim that he is simply being "honest". Listen: his English is too good for me to simply accept that he doesn't know what he is saying. But the legitimate point is this: its ultimately HOW one says things that matters.

For example, why could he not have said something like this: "The slams are the ultimate goal of all players...and while achieving the top ranking is an honor, every player wants to be the last one standing at the end of a slam."

Now, I came up with this in about five seconds. And Federer has had extensive p.r. training. I guess I can't really expect much more after witnessing "the tears of a clown";)

Oh...and again, the players are FINALLY realizing: Rafa is truly classy and with Federer: don't believe the hype.

I would not say that : Rafa is professional, Federer is classy.

Considering how honest he has been, he really has to have a lot of tact as you said to have been appreciated along all these years.

For anybody else, it would have been a disaster, I can assure you.

He took too many risks, but he usually made his "language shots" very skilfully.

But in interviews Rafa is the best for sure ... since he respects the bases of professional communication.

Federer keeps on behaving as an amateur for that, highly talented amateur, but yet an amateur.
