Ajde so fucking happy.
Jelena was close to losing. Nara played incredible tennis, retrieving and redirecting so well, she was very disappointed to lose.

Dokic has her power back, just amazing to watch, the angles she could get on her backhand wing combined with the pace is just sublime.

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?

Second tour QF for 2011. Jelena's fought hard in these last two matches, I think her level is better than in Paris to be honest. The ultra-fast surface really helped her cause there. This week though, she's been engaging in long rallies and defending pretty well for her standards when necessary. The serve wasn't crazy today either. 7 aces and 4 double faults if I'm not mistaken.

Nara was flawless for the first set and a half though. She was not bothered by Jelena's pace until she started to fatigue in the third set and couldn't set herself quickly enough to redirect.

Daniela Hantuchova.

Casey Dellacqua, Jelena Jankovic, Anna-Lena Groenefeld,
Jelena Dokic, Mirjana Lucic, Sara Tomic, Sloane Stephens
Melanie Oudin, Kiki Bertens, Kaia Kanepi, Alison Riske

Just ran out of steam mid-way through the last set.

Really promising result though. Played fantastically for the most part. So proud of Kuruchan.

I got nervous when she blew those three set points up 6-3 in the tiebreak, but she kept hitting out, and it served her well. So great to see her motivated and excited out on court again.

great fight back from Jelena

Kurumi could have won in straight sets

Smile... When you do, it may change someone's day

First time in the year I'm really convinced of Jelena's matchplay Paris was great obviously, but she was just playing out of her mind there. Today she wasn't playing awesomely but she stuck it out and humbly rallied her way to victory instead of basically tanking (like vs. Pennetta).

Nara played really well too, great counterattacker

Plenty to be proud of, i was really impressed. Great anticipation and movement and some absolutely sublime angles.


Jelena played quality tennis and still probably should have lost in 2, so i'm ecstatic with this result, really fought and wanted it - some of the best i've seen from her in a while. Power off her groundies was very impressive.
