Aww Genie really played like crap today, not her day for, Still a pretty impressive tourney for her and top 100!!!
JJ should actually reach the final! She stepped it up in her last 2 matches from what I saw.
Do you know the issue in Genie's left knee area? It was pretty taped up and her movement seemed a bit lacking on the BH side (which is what I assumed is from the nagging injury/pain) and JJ exposed it throughout the match.
Jankovic at her dramatic best will lead, throw the lead away, spot you a massive lead in the third set, decide to come back with some blazing retrieving and backhands, almost comeback, and then hand you the win, possibly with back to back double faults or netted forehands. You have no agency in this match. You might start to wonder if you have free will. Perhaps solipsism is true after all - is it Jankovic's world and you're simply allowed to live exist in it? It's basically existential waterboarding.
