Jackson -v- Flipkins

Did anyone see any of this match yesterday, I'm curious to know why Jamea was struggling so much...

Was it Kirsten playing better or Jamea's errors? Anyone have any reports would be greatly appreciated

Do you think Jamea can still win??

Flipkens is a former junior champ here she must be good on grass, plus its still on serve at 5-4, its not like she is losing by a huge margin

Grassonkova.

Flipkins game doesn't have much to it but it's suited to grass. I see her being a slightly better version of Nicole Pratt. Both were very good juniors who struggled the make the transition to tour level.

Jamea can still win and probably will now after having a day to figure out what to do with Flipkins. I still think the odds of her beating Hantuchova are low. It doesn't look like she scouted Flipkins.

I saw her on ESPN this time last year at Wimbledon in the second round against Davenport. Its a great what one year can do. She looked a mess last year, she seemed to be nervous for the most part, but it looks like she is learning to overcome her nerves.

Ya she gets there! And her backhand was looking good, I liked the angle of the camera, kind of like a courside angle

I downloaded the match and just watched it. Except for the occasional chip and charge by Flipkens, this match was almost exclusively played from the baseline. Flipkens' forehand doesn't translate nearly as well to grass as her backhand does. Her forehand has a pretty big backswing and gets somewhat loopy, neither of these things working well on grass. Her backhand, however, is almost made for grass. She sliced *a lot* of backhands, giving JJ some awkward low balls. She also has the ability to hit flat winners of that wing, definitely her better shot so far in this match. Jamea is pretty strong off both wings, hitting mostly flat off both sides. She has very nice angles, and uses the whole court well. JJ was the first to strike in this match, breaking to get to 3-2 with a nice volley (I think both players could benefit from increased net play, both are competent volliers). Flipkens broke back in the next game on a backhand error by JJ. The errors starting creeping in Jamea's game at this point, and Flipkens started to pick it up. Flipkens broke again to get to 5-3 with two straight forehand winners. Flipkens built a 40-15 lead in the next game (2 set pts) with very nice serving. She threw away the first one with a DF and Jamea saved the 2nd one with a very nice double-handed volley winner. JamJam took the game with a big backhand return two points later. So far, the match is pretty high quality, with only a slight patch of poor play from Jamea (which was negated by Flipkens' nice play). Jamea's serve is definitely vunerable, she had a few DF's and her first serve is no weapon. So Flipkens could very well break to take the set tomorrow. I'll definitely be watching.

On a side note, JamJam is pretty good-looking, bad hair and all .
