Jelena Jankovic


S. HALEP/J. Jankovic
6‑4, 2‑6, 6‑0

THE MODERATOR:  Questions, please.

Q.  Seemed to have a bit of trouble with your forehand early today.  Any reasons for that?
JELENA JANKOVIC:  Yeah, I don't know.  Especially in that first set I framed a lot of forehands, and, you know, especially some of those short balls.
I had a game point at 5‑All, and as well missed, you know, one of the forehands, you know, wide.
I think, you know, just I wasn't moving the feet enough and wasn't setting up for the ball very well.
That's why I was not hitting so clean or so solid.  But it happens.

Q.  Just wanted you to sum up your Australian Open.  I know you're very disappointed right at the moment, but how do you feel?
JELENA JANKOVIC:  Yeah, I mean, what can I say?  It's obviously disappointed when you lose especially ‑‑I mean, it was tough.  I mean, these last three rounds I played, I was fighting, I was not playing, you know, my best tennis, but I was in there.
Then today, you know, I felt a few points here and there if I stayed‑‑ you know, if I was a little bit smarter a little bit, you know, fitter, at times I would do much better.  But it didn't go my way.
So overall, I mean, it's okay.  You know, of course it could have been better.  I thought I was going to go further, but that's life.

Q.  Would you have been happy with another fourth Japanese in a row?  Might have helped.
JELENA JANKOVIC:  I could have, if I played in Japan maybe, but here in Australia, no.
