Re: 2012 Post AO Hardcourts

Yanina beat Bojana 64 64 . Previously,Jankovic had defeated Flipkens 75 75

Yanina came back from *14 in the 2nd set too .EVERY,and I mean it, every game in the 2nd set went to deuces.It was a long set,so glad she could finish it in two and stay relatively fresh against Jankovic tomorrow. BEL needs this win,no matter the costs

Re: 2012 Post AO Hardcourts

They lost to Serbia. Yanina won both her singles matches. I thought they wouldn't play her for doubles, but oh well.. And then there were reports of back problems

Anyways, she's set to play in Paris. Against [LL] Jill Craybas. It was supposed to be Jankovic. Her draw got easier, if only she could take advantage of it too.

Re: 2012 Post AO Hardcourts

Paris, r2: Yanina won against Christina McHale 62 75

Lots of doubles faults in the 2nd set, she even had 3 in a row

Each win is welcomed nowadays

Re: 2012 Post AO Hardcourts

I only saw the match till 4-1 in the first set and that was some solid play.

Re: 2012 Post AO Hardcourts

She beats Barthel 64 67(3) 63

It was a HQ match IMO,Yanina had like 49Winners,Barthel 51 or something. Serve was working fine,bar 8DFs .I´d say this is the best she´s played in a long time,you know she wanted it badly,even fought back from 0-5 down in the 2nd and made it to the TB ,and altough she lost it on a DF she regrouped nicely. Also,I wanna add that she´s comfortable playing here,I believe. Last year came close to beating Kvitova on indoor(though Zahlavova Strycova was closer as she held MP in the round before),and two years ago that loss to Martic,even though the quality of the match was superb.

Well,like I said,GL tomorrow. Kerber is actually a nice opponent on a Premier SF,I don´t think she´ll find anyone easier than that. Match NB 16.00 Paris time,hopefully she´s rested enough

Re: 2012 Post AO Hardcourts

Well done
I'm just scared she will not have had enough time to recover. Kerber had a shorter match against Sharapova, and will be probably more fresh.

Re: 2012 Post AO Hardcourts

I'm so glad she fought it through. I couldn't stay up anymore to watch the third set Amazing come back from 0-5* down Really shame about the DF in the TB, but in the end she won it all

Good luck against Kerber, win would be nice. If it doesn't happen that's okay too. Yanina has at least bounced back nicely, though each match I'm afraid for the bad news

Re: 2012 Post AO Hardcourts

Yanina lost 64 in the 3rd. She led *3-1 in the 3rd,so I can´t help but feel dissapointed...(67(2) 63 64)

Whatever,next step is Doha. Has Morita in r1,if she wins,Schiavone, and then maybe Pavlyuchenkova most likely

Re: 2012 Post AO Hardcourts

62 61 against Morita. Such an easy and nice win

Schiavone is next. Yanina has never lost to her,she even beat her on clay just before Francesca won RG´10. They´re 2nd on C1,sucks there´s no livestream

BTW,again no aces. Her serve is much better indoors than outdoors,by a wide margin. Quite a pity there are so few indoors tournaments to play

Re: 2012 Post AO Hardcourts

Really solid start after a good week in Paris
Well I guess the last 3 meetings don't mean that much. But for sure she can win against Schiavone, she isn't in such a great form for the moment
