Re: Rosmalen Final: (1) Jankovic vs. (3) Chakvetadze, who will win?
It's an important match for both players who might play each other 9 days later in the quarters (but Martina can definately ruin that matchup).
I think this is an important match for Jelena to win.
Nicole Vaidisova and Ana Ivanovic are obviously not ready to make some noise at this year's Wimbledon but Anna is.
She needs to put a little doubt in Anna's head in her place on tour.
Problem is that Anna's game works well on grass. She moves well. Her shots are deceptive and she's able to change the direction of the ball with ease.
She returns well. She knows exactly when to come to net without hestitation.
Her serve is a weakness more so than Jelena's.
Counter-punchers will give Jelena issues on grass again it's all about proving that they can do more than that.
It's gonna be a tight match but I think Jelena has it in her to win in 3.
