Well for all I know having not seen the match Dechy could have hit 68 unforced errors, but Jelena played really well and I think she will be back soon enough.

I was very surprised at the Jelena-Nathalie result. Nathalie's been playing very well this year and Jelena just won single handedly! Take a look at the stats:

Dokic Dechy
1st Serve % 65% 67%
Aces 5 2
Double Faults 7 5
Winning % - 1st Serve Pts. 29 of 37 = 78% 19 of 33 = 58%
Winning % - 2nd Serve Pts. 7 of 20 = 35% 5 of 16 = 31%
Winners (Including Service) 25 8
Unforced Errors 26 15
Break Point Conversions 4 of 10 = 40 % 1 of 2 = 50 %
Net Approaches 10 of 13 = 77 % 4 of 9 = 44 %
Total Points Won 61 45

Her serve was okay, a lot of aces but still had DF's, maybe she's trying to make her serve into a weapon?? She had a lot of winners, and her winner/UE ratio was pretty even and I think that's pretty good. Glad to see she made some trips into the net, maybe Heinz is trying to work on that also. All in all, Im hoping that Jelena is back and possibly better then ever.

Maybe she just dismissed all that “brain-driven with lot of variety tennis” and just follows her power-tennis instincts again.

it's a very encouraging tournament so far, and hopefully she's back

one slight doubt i have, there's been a lot of strange results in Miami, mens as well as the gurls, what with a sickness so....

but hell, she's beaten an in-form player so let's fucking enjoy it!

I think she is, if you look at all the stats for the players within her quarter she seems to be playing the best. I think if she and Kim make the QF, I wouldn't be surprised if Dokic won

Jelena and Kim have had some great matches in the past, hopefully we can see another soon!
