AO R2: Jelena Jankovic def. Kirsten Flipkens 6-4, 7-5

Not a very convincing performance at times by Jankovic.
On the other hand, her backhand was on fire and some well constructed points.
Winners/UEs 21-15

Flipkens played great.

My god, that was probably one of the most painful matches I've seen Jelena play. Forehand was SHIT. She needs new shoes ASAP. She was agitated and wasn't focused at all.

Flipkens dictated and "dicked" Jankovic around the court for most of the match.

Jankovic was moonballing like a 100 ranked player

I expect her to beat Sugiyama but Zvonareva is looming in the latter rounds.

Terrible match from the world number 1, she was lucky she was playing Kirsten, if it were any top 10 player she would be out of this tournament, that was a mediocre performance

Good luck next round

Zvonareva should take care of Jankovic. If not, Safina surely will.

I think Flipper played pretty well, she knew she had nothing to lose and really dominated some of those ralleys!

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

Jelena played crap. Her forehand hardly even made it past the service line most of the time. I'm glad she finally won it. She better get it together for the later rounds

LOLL maybe it was far from Jankovic's best, but come on guys, it wasn't THAT bad, she hit more winners than UFES and lost her focus a few times, but I didn't think she looked like shit out there, Flipkens was on fire I thought... It makes me remember a bit the French Open and the US Open of last year, in which she struggled in both in early rounds...

Flipkens was close to being 4-1 up in that second set! She kinda blew it/JJ kinda stepped it up. It was a bit of both at that stage of the game. I had no doubt JJ would still prevail in straight sets though.
