A type of recognizable cheating! Jelena has been taught to be a drama queen (usually taught by coaches) and this latest match with the young Danish girl was a true picture of a type of cheating - you cheat when you stop the match because you are losing and pretend to have injuries - you certainly cheat your opponenent of her momentum. (Check back to see what happened at the Fr. Open) What a low class way to win. She is not very popular, not many of us who follow tennis wish for her to win her matches. We like to watch someone who plays with courage, decency, skill and who is a truly good sport.
