Hihi this is juicy, Jelena Jankovic is fighting with Roger Federer via press.
Last month Federer commented that a player who has never won a Grand Slam should not be granted the number one spot, which was at the time Jankovic was at the top of the rankings, and today JJ fired back to the men’s tennis legend.
“To be honest, I do not like to talk about players, I really prefer to focus on myself,” Jankovic, currently ranked third, said at the Paris Open.
“Why should he even care? I don’t like putting my nose in other’s business.”
The Serb is celebrating Rafael Nadal’s humble personality.
“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?”
Jankovic is currently in Paris for the Open GDF SUEZ, where she’ll face Italian Francesca Schiavone in the first round. (photo: Ralf Reinecke)
