Saw from mid-way through the second set. Julie was playing very well off the ground and Jarka was making a lot of mistakes and couldn't buy a first serve. Towards the end of the set Julie had two or three lucky points, net cords and framed returns, etc. and Jarmila was smiling at them to begin with but got more and more frustrated. In the third she looked desperate, complaining about the linecalling (some of which was justified, some of which wasn't) and she at one point muttered "call after f***ing call" on a point that didn't even seem to have anything mildly close to being questionable.

Looked like she was in for a collapse at 0-40 on her serve, but then won 7 points in a row and really showed some fight. Her groundstrokes got more consistent and she was hitting winners off both wings. Julie got down on herself around this time, at one moment exclaiming loudly "what is that girl SCREAMING about?" (referring to the Riske/Zahlalova match two courts over which both girls were insane on, far worse than MLDB)

From then on out, despite more dodgy linecalls Jarka closed it out very well and Julie did try to go for things but her accuracy deserted her and she pulled a few forehands wide left.

Few pics from this one to upload, including a nice one Jarka posed for me afterwards.

Are you a raving mental case with awesome groundstrokes? I'll probably like you...

Okay, first time I've done this in a year, hope this works.
