Jankovic Disses Fed

Just before the start of the Australian Open, Roger Federer blasted the WTA by saying that Jelena Jankovic shouldn’t be number 1, because she hasn’t won a Grand Slam tournament. Well, Jankovic has fired back. 

Jankovic is playing in the Paris Open this week and in a press conferance, she had a few choice words for the former number 1. 

“To be honest, I do not like to talk about players, I really prefer to focus on myself. 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.”

“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?”

You go girl!

      I’m not rooting for either of them, but I didn’t really like it when he initally dissed her. It was uncalled for. She was number one in the world, whether he liked it or not. It was just unnecessary for him to call her out like that.

      They’re both great players, but neither of them are my favorites. There is a lot of pressure on both of them this year, so we will see if either of them can step up to the challenge.
