Stuttgart 1R: Mary Pierce Confronts Jelena Jankovic (8)



MARY leads H2H 1-0
USO 2005 3R - PIERCE D. JANKOVIC 63 30 ret

---------------------------------------------------------------

Jelena is the fave based on recent form but maybe she is still injured and jet-lagged after coming from Guangzhou

even though Mary lost to Alona last week, she lost to the eventual champ so nothing to be ashamed of. GO MARY

Yeah, I can see that

Didn't Jankovic withdraw this week in China? If fit, then she'll win, otherwise it's Mary's for the taking...

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

If Jelena doesn"t have problems with her injury that should be a quick match

Swiss champs.

To be honest, since pierce has come back she hasnt looked in great shape, which is a shame since she was so trim and injury-free last year. I think the lack of training due to her foot injury have really undone all the good work from last year

However, with Jankovic's recent withdrawal, you have to say jelena is not the overwhelming favourite she would be if we saw this draw a week ago. Stil i think a fit Jelena should be too much for Pierce. Jelena can soak up Mary's weight of shot and then dish out winners of her own, because mary hasnt got the foot-speed really to contend with the winners that Jelena will produce.

I would say Jelena, maybe in 3 taking into account the withdrawal
