Jarka in January (Version 2.0)

After a banner end to the 2008 Season, Jarmila Gajdosova soared from just outside the top 200 to just inside the top 100 in the space of a couple of months.

After tearing it up on the ITF Women's Circuit (winning 3 tournaments and making the final of two more), Gajdosova enters the 2009 Summer Circuit with confidence in her ability on the WTA Tour, also. She reached the semi finals of the Japan Open, upsetting Shahar Peer (amongst others) in what was her best performance on the WTA Tour to date.

Although she will probably compete for the most part as a Slovak in January, she will play the Aussie Open as a proud Australian, and with a good draw could do some damage.

GOOD LUCK JARKA

All the best to Jarka here's for a good Aussie summer for her

Her first tournament in January should be the Brisbane International if I'm correct. She's most likely in qualies.

Awesome

That frees up one of the main draw wildcards
Am hoping that Dokic gets a main draw wildcard and maybe Holland and Wejnert to 'test the waters' in their home city.

Re: Jarka in January (Version 2.0)

I watcher Jarka play Peng today. She played so well. Hitting so many winners and serving very good.

She seemed conmfident and fit. She struggled a little to close it out. But she was very pumped up. She was constantly pumping her fist. And was also getting a little angry.

Ive seen most of her practice sessions as well. She is hitting the ball very cleanly and looks so fit.

Tough task against Azarenka but hopefully she can pull it off.

◊ Casey Dellacqua ◊ Olivia Rogowska ◊ Monika Wejnert ◊ Jelena Dokic ◊
◊ Laura Robson ◊ Sabine Lisicki ◊ Timea Bacsinszky ◊ Dinara Safina ◊

Great stuff Jarka!
Aza dropped only 2 games in the 1st round - it will be a toughie, but she's in shape to give her a good run!

There's more to life than just being happy.

Gorgeous shots so far against Azarenka. But don't know how long she can keep this up. 30-30 4-4 now

Re: Jarka in January (Version 2.0)

Too bad she lost.. she played a great match....She has such an explosive game.I still can't understand why she's only ranked #98.I watched her 2 or 3 years ago in WTT and she caught my attention there.. I hope 2009 is a great year for her and hope she breaks into the top 25 at least..

Re: Jarka in January (Version 2.0)

Think she needs more variety and increased fitness before she'd be top 25, but think even without these improvements she can improve her ranking 20 or 30 places.
