Jeca is able to win, it just depends will she play good enough (like we all know she can)

"I dream of people watching me holding up my third Wimbledon trophy... Most of all I dream of being a good person to all that are inspired by me I dream of having girls, women, boys, men being fond of not only what I have done on the tennis court, or on the big screen or what I design but I dream of what people think of me as a person.
I dream that people think of me as a giving person as a person that
loves life and is fun to be around." - Serena

Yeah. It's time that Petrova finally won one against Jankovic. She's a better server, better volleyer, and better all around player than Jankovic. Petrova's mental toughness is the thing that's really lacking.

Nadia should win.

I can't think of a witty signature right now. I like turtles.

petrova is better in all departments except the obvious backhand, that jelena has arguably the best in the game right now, and jelena is way faster, especially since petrova isn't exactly a gentle giant. but it's a slower surface and the balls won't come neatly to jelena, and so petrova should win this in straight sets.
she's got much more stamina as well, and can take three sets if needed on the slow surface. i really do see her winning the long rallies much more.
i hope jelena has a better draw next time.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.
