Highlights video that I made. Jelena is such a fighter and was absolutely dominant in the match. I love the cat fight Barbara had with Leanne White near the end of the match.

Thoughts?

Apparently no thoughts since you didn't post link or somethin...

ps. Jelena WAS a fighter, no longer IS.

I liked Schett's game better than Jelena's and I seem to remember her being slightly more aggressive than this reel makes her out to be. So slow.

Dokic just isn't that mobile anymore. She can't make that BHDTL way off the court or be in position when moving as well anymore.

I think this was in 2000.

Leanne & Babsi

BTW, is this the match when organisers played the wrong Austrian anthem and Babsi got offended?

Thanks for the upload. Jelena's defense was impressive in parts and I also noticed that her forehand looks different these days on certain balls.

Well she hasn't come close to being in optimal shape since 2003. Even at AO 2009 she could have been fitter still.

Daniela Hantuchova.

Jelena was 16 back then. Can you find a 16 yo play like that these days ?
No.

Those winners. Such gutsy play!

Today we have Wozniacki as our young talent.

Schett had a lovely service motion, and power flowed from it quite easily. Very erratic though, often compromising placement for outlandish serving.

Shame her footwork was so unresponsive too.
