Good match, but no more entertaining than Radwanska vs Petkovic at Beijing last year TBH.

Jankovic and Clijsters will go for the winners if they get the chance.
They can go from defense to offense in one shot.

Radwanska and Wozniacki will need to see a larger-than-Texas opening to try to hit one.

Re: Counterpuncher matches don't have to be boring.....

Sad to see JaJa's athleticism gone to shit. Typical though, giving away chances like that. Should have won this match.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

JJ should have peaked at this era

JJ with her counterpunching skills at its finest
