Jarka rallied from 3-0 down in the 2nd and saved a set point serving at 4-5. Congrats girl!

Hobart R1: [WC]Jarmila Gajdosova (AUS) def. Dropshot Dame (SUI) 6-4 7-5

Nice win for Jarka! 2 wins already this year after a GOAT slump

Was down set point at 4-5 and then won 9 points in a row and got the win

Also came back from 0-3 in the 2nd set.

Did not think Jarka was going to be able to hold on and play cleanly enough. Looks like old Jarka is slowly coming back.

Jarmila is hitting with much more spin, so she's not that prone to UEs anymore. It does make her shots very short sometimes. She's in form though, nice hitting, lots of spectacular FHs.

Yyessss go Jarka

Hopefully she can be in the top 150 by the end of the Australian summer. A good draw at the AO would do her a world of good...

I will say, Jarka didn't play THAT well. She did hit a lot of nice winners (like on match point) but she still missed a lot of easy shots. Romina helped by also hitting a lot of errors. She'll need to step up if she wants to make a deep run here!

I only caught the end of the 2nd set but what I saw looked good from Jarka

Tough opening round for Jarka, but watching her inch her way back in the second set, with GOAT serving and good groundies, is promising for this Aussie season!

Jarkka is going the right direction having more margin though she still tends to go for too much, still i think a long way to go.

Hopefully her millions of UEs from last season can turn into more great winners this season, when she´s on, she´s a joy to watch.

Meh. Oprandi is active as Yogi Bear, while Gajdosova is interesting on court like the Granny from Looney Tunes. Aka they are lucky they faced each other.

Re: Hobart R1: Jarmila Gajdosova d. Romina Oprandi 6-4, 7-5

jarka didn't really improve/regress from the tsurenko match. Just that Romina was a mental midget towards the end there, completely folding after wasting her chances.

Govortsova is winnable but I think Jarka will find a way to screw that up. Her return of serve is really poor, even against the puffballers.
