Jie Zheng - Appreciate

I know she just lost, but let's celebrate her efforts throughout this fortnight.

Ivanovic, Szavay & Vaidisova couldn't handle her, and it took a real effort in the 2nd set from Rena to dismiss her.

Congrats on reaching the SF Jie, and hopefully it won't be your last time in the big time

Hat's off. This girl impressed me a lot in this tournament. She could hold her head up high. There's no shame in losing to a great player like Serena.

Re: Jie Zheng - Appreciate

Congrats to Jie. She did really well to reach the semis, knocked out some fantastic players and made Serena work a little bit. I hope she does well in other tournaments now and pushes on and that it wasn't a one slam wonder

Absolutely amazing.

She was one of the best stories at Wimbledon this year. Congrats Jie.

She is amazing. The way she handled the pressure at the end of that 2nd set was really amazing. She would hit winners on break points Except for match point, she was playing incredibly after the 2nd rain delay.

Re: Jie Zheng - Appreciate

I could watch her all day - I love her attitude, her strokes, her flat ball, even her grunt. She is so good to watch, I love her! Also, I think she's very pretty, especialyl off court, and I find her english adorable. Love you Jie! You should feel very proud!

Re: Jie Zheng - Appreciate

Wonderful tournament for her. Great story and some great tennis. Is it Jie Zheng, or Zheng Jie?

Imperious in victory. Never conceiving the possibility of defeat. The greatest of her era. The self-belief, that smile, backhand, muscles, serve, personality, all larger than life. There's no greater sight in women's tennis than watching Serena J. Williams go to work.
The others are Great, but Serena's the Greatest
