So Safina bailed on her beat down

Sony Ericsson Championships - Doha 2009 - Previews

...Safina has bailed on the entire event. She flew to Doha, posed for pictures (wearing some of the most garish makeup and the most god-awful black outfit I have ever seen), went out on court, posed with Jankovic, warmed up, played two games, and then bailed. She said that her back was hurting. To quote her, “My body just gave up, and I couldn't handle the pain anymore”.… Continue

Is Jelena Jankovic the real deal?

When Jelena Jankovic first assumed the No.1 ranking this summer, her ascension was largely greeted with surprise and disbelief. This was a woman who at the elderly age of 23 had not made it past a grand slam semi-final in her career, who admittedly had played a vast number of matches, but had not succeeded in converting them into titles, and was at the time losing at the quarter-final stage, week-in, week-out. Amelie Mauresmo and Kim Clijsters both reached No.1 two years before they won a… Continue
