The final will be a test for her if she plays Pavs, she'll destroy Gisela.

Jelena Jankovic
- She used to know how to play tennis...
Jumping over career opportunities since 2006...
As her fans watch in awe at her ability to fuck that up...

Polona Not that I expected win or something but at least better game from her. Just wonder number of UEs ... probablly more than 30. Anyway, still great tournament.
Congrats to Jelena! Win final tomorrow, please!

Rampre – Hercog – Kvitova – Lepchenko – Date Krumm – Kerber – Mattek-Sands – Hsieh – Cetkovska – Stosur – Kolar – Makarova – Lucic-Baroni - Safarova – Lisicki - Muguruza - Zahlavova Strycova

Ugly match, but NID. This is the first time I watched Hercog and she was dreadful. I mean, no backhand, bunch of fh errors. Wth?

Jelena Janković & Ana Ivanović
Bojana Jovanovski

Jelena Dokić
Kim Clijsters & Serena Williams

Re: MOnterrey SF: Empress lectures Hercog 6-3 6-2

WTF, I thought this match was supposed to be played in a few hours

Though, JJ prolly played with 37% of her capacity, so...I didn't miss much

Now win this latino-slam!!!

Re: MOnterrey SF: Empress lectures Hercog 6-3 6-2

First final since ROme last year.
No offense to Hercog but it looked like a practice match for Jelena.Hercog tried with what she had (some nice dropshots and volleys)but power wise she couldn't cope with JJ's groudstrokes or serve.Score could have been even more onesided had JJ not given all these free returns.On a sidenote, I like how JJ improved her slice bh and how she is using it.

Re: MOnterrey SF: Empress lectures Hercog 6-3 6-2

Polona is gifted both as an athlete and with a helluva lot of natural tennis talent, but until she sorts out her concentration and all those sloppy errors, she ain't going anywhere fast. She struggles so much with the bounce and speed of any hardcourt, so realistically, I doubt she will ever record even remotely good results outside of these weak Internationals.

She better not play like this on the real clay season.

Anyway, easy win for Jelena. Just cruising. Hope she can up it in the final.

Yeah, Polona´s DH backhand is extremely unreliable. Moreover, today she was UE machine even from her forehand side. Pretty boring match. But at least Polona did play a awesome half-volley once.

Re: MOnterrey SF: Empress lectures Hercog 6-3 6-2

Polona's game is aesthetic but useless, if you can't return basic ball to the court or simple backhand, all the nice vollies, drop shots and slices are nothing. JJ just was there to put the ball in the court and it was enough.
