Congrats JJ, you deserve it !


Petra, all those DF in the second set giving JJ so many break chances. The last game of the match was great, and that last ball hitting the net

Re: Doha QF: [5] Jankovic def. [3] Kvitova 6-1 6-3

at the "she was tired" excuse.
OMG, season has just started, how can they all be tired ALREADY?I can imagine how'll they look like in September-October, playing in wheelchairs, or in bandages, like mummies.For God's sake, stop it, at least for now.
The Empress was empressive Godlike forehands, very solid serves, especially the second.That volley after BDTL
Who is the next?

agreed. And she's been shaky off ground all week so its not like she could've used that to her advantage. Hopefully she'll regroup for Dubai

You're seriously trying to say a player is tired after 2 matches? I don't buy it, I'm sorry.

Empress Jelena Jankovic

Empress exposed the limits of Petra's game kinda like she exposed Woz's game in the Indian wells's final few years ago.Bar the lost of focus at the start of the 2nd set she played this match on her own terms and never really allowed Petra to take the match in charge.Petra didn't lose cause she was tired, she simply had no answer to what JJ asked today.

I don't like Safarova_is_GOAT posts as much as the next, but he MUST be doing something right if these many posters are saying/quoting his name . Keep doing what you're doing GOAT

No "she was tired" excuses for Petra. She's played 3-setters, sure, but Jelena has also played doubles. It was just another inconsistent Petra performance
JJ! Nice solid play, and excellent serving. Good luck in the semis!

EDIT: Petra served 50% for the match, but only 25% in the second set.
it's easier to have a good service day with (for example) 17 aces vs the worst returner in top50 aka Safarova, than against Jelena though.JJ put a lot of pressure on Petra's serve today

I had it set before the match ended and forgot to post it due to watching something else. I appreciate the advice, but i've posted many results threads here before.

I agree, nice job by Lucie to tire Petra. JJ got another revenge for the FedCup final thrashing
