Jelena Jankovic’s mother has not been a happy bunny over the past week or so. Snezana Jankovic has been tearing into Ana Ivanoic and the Serbian Tennis Federation after their lost to Slovakia on the weekend.
Snezana was not please when she saw images of Ivanovic relaxing in Majorca with boyfriend Adam Scott in of getting off her ass and playing for her country!
Jelena missed only one match for Serbia in the last 10 years. This time she flew 48 hours across half the world to play here, despite a serious wrist injury. At the same time, somebody else had coffee somewhere while my child played hurting for her country.
Snezana also blamed the Serbian Tennis Federation for the low attendance over the weekend:
I think the organization failed this time and marketing flopped.
Why were our political elite and tennis officials absent. Those in charge should think: Does anybody care about women’s tennis? Do we need a Fed Cup team at all?
I think Snezana has a real point here, not really about the Serbian Tennis Federation but about Ana Ivanovic. Ana couldnt be bothered to make the trip to play for her country when she would rather just sit on her ass and do nothing. I think this really shows her commitment to her country!
