PACIFIC LIFE OPEN


 

March 18, 2008


 

Jelena Jankovic


INDIAN WELLS, CALIFORNIA

THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. What are you sick with?
JELENA JANKOVIC: I got a cold and I think my mom had it for a couple of days and I think I picked it up from her.

Q. Oh, really?
JELENA JANKOVIC: So my nose is a little bit runny and my eyes are a little bit, kind of watery, and this morning I had sore throat. So I'm not feeling that great. But tomorrow I have a day off so I can at least recover as much as I can and be ready for my quarterfinal.

Q. Didn't seem it affect you on the court today, or did it?
JELENA JANKOVIC: I didn't want it show it, but I felt a little bit slow on the court. I didn't feel that strong. I felt a bit weak out there. I was trying my best and I was trying to get through this match so that I can just feel better in the next few days. That will help.

Q. Did you feel the cold and all that coming on over the last couple days?
JELENA JANKOVIC: Yeah, I did feel it coming on the last couple of days. I was feeling a little bit cold, and I was feeling like I'm going to get a fever. But I didn't, and then this morning, I woke up, I could barely speak.
You can see my voice is a bit strange. It's not as usual. But it's not that bad. I mean, I have to just keep -- I will rest a little bit tomorrow and just have a light hit, and then I will feel better.
It's just a cold. It's nothing. My mom had it for three or four days. She's now finished with it, and I just started, so...

Q. Sounds sexier.
JELENA JANKOVIC: Sounds sexier? No. I want it recover. I don't want to sound sexy. I just want to feel heathy.
No, I don't know. Maybe that's true. Actually, I've been getting a lot of guys lately. A lot of them are coming. I don't know why. I guess it's my voice.

Q. Let me ask you real quick, at this tournament you kind of struggled before this year. I think the record was, like, 3-5.
JELENA JANKOVIC: Yeah. I never played so well here in the desert, for some reason. I would play so well the week before, in Dubai. I would play semis and finals in Dubai, and then I would come here and couldn't get my rhythm. It's the desert and balls fly.
I don't know. I just never had a good result here, but hopefully this year will change. I already did better than I did all the years I played here.
It's one of my worst tournament results. Even from last year, this was the tournament I did -- I lost in the round of 16. All the other tournaments was semis, finals, and so it's just here.
So I have to -- I'm improving. So I'm in the quarterfinal. I made a record here but don't want to stop. I want to continue.
