Dokic won 6-3 1-6 6-4 .... all credit to Elena .... she was really hitting those balls without any nervousness and really keeping in the rallies with Dokic.
In the first set it was v.close until Jelena got on and Elena was a little off. The set was close until 2-2 (I mean those first 4 games took a while). Dokic looked set to take the second pretty easily too, but was broken at 1-2 for Elena to go up 3-1.
Dokic was down 0-40 at 1-3 and came back to Ad-40 and had an easy shot but ue'd it. She then gave the next two games away.
Dokic seemed to give up when down 1-4 in the second, which was v.dissapointing. Nothing like the Jelena we used to know.
The third set was v.exciting and v.close. at 3-3 the next 2 games were won to love or so and went by in like 3 mins. but 4-4 game was v.long and Baltacha played brilliant. Dokic didn't give Elena any points to go up 5-4 though but Baltacha saved numerous game points. It was dissapointing that Elena's serve decided to go at 4-5 down in the final set, but still a v.impressive match by Baltacha.
Jelena I think will take confidence from this win, to fight to take it in the end. In the last game there were numerous "C'mons!!" and when she won she pumped her fist to her heart, which is a good sign. I hope we see that fighting spirit back soon!
