Re: Linz 1r: Janković def. Bammer 6-1 6-7 6-3
The worst match I ever saw. Jelena played without serve since the middle of the 2. set just throwing the ball into the court, making some double faults or giving her rival opportunity to attack it.
There are two interesting moments in this match:
1. Jelena looked as she would have been injured (right shoulder), but she did not call for trainer. In the post-match court interview there was a question of the Austrian reporter to S. Bammer: "Jankovic`s shots and specially serve looked strange today. Do you think, she was injured?" Bammer`s answer: "I know Jankovic very well. She is a big actress. So it is hard to believe in an injury."
2. I know it is not fair to judge a player on the base of a single match but I really do not understand how somebody of Bammer`s quality can be in top 100. She has absolutely no good shots, her timing is a disaster and she makes mistakes on the most simple balls. I am sure that every other player in top 200 would have bashed Jelena regarding her game today, but Bammer was making tons of mistakes.
