She lost . No doubt she was nervous at the start. But thought it would have been closer. Oh well go experience for her.

Sharapova ~ Li ~ Kerber ~ Kvitova ~ Kirilenko ~ Ivanovic ~ Stephens ~ Makarova ~ Safarova ~ Cirstea ~ Goerges ~ Cornet ~ Lisicki ~ Robson ~ Watson ~ Kanepi ~ Keys ~ Tsurenko ~ Wozniak ~ Puig ~ Oudin ~ Petkovic ~ Sevastova ~ Rezai

AND OF COURSE ALL THE AUSSIES!!!

Jovana goes down 1-6 6-7. Disappointing that she couldn't win the 2nd but still, a pretty decent effort all round. And yes, like SammyC said, you can sorta see that she doesn't crumble that easily like Liv or some of the other Aussie girls might. E.g. serving a 4-4, she held to love then at 5-4, held serve after DFing at 15-15. Most other Aussie girls would have been much wobblier at that point, imho.

Overall, a good effort from Jovana in her WTA debut. I still say she's doing everything right to get herself an AO MDWC.

much better second set from Bojana. pretty disappointing that she couldn't put some more pressure on Nina's serve at 5-4 and 6-5 and her break point conversions, was it 1/8? i reckon there were a few nerves since it was her first WTA level match, and we'll see how she does next week. she's playing Hobart right?

I agree with the all the coments above. Some of the others would have completely capitulated after losing the first set 6/1 but Jovana kept fighting and a tight second set result resulted. Well done indeed.

Re: Jovana Bobus 4 Eva! (Bojana Bobusic Cheering Thread)

Just looking at the stats the match must have been tight. Bobusic had 8 break points whille her oppenent only had 4.

Sharapova ~ Li ~ Kerber ~ Kvitova ~ Kirilenko ~ Ivanovic ~ Stephens ~ Makarova ~ Safarova ~ Cirstea ~ Goerges ~ Cornet ~ Lisicki ~ Robson ~ Watson ~ Kanepi ~ Keys ~ Tsurenko ~ Wozniak ~ Puig ~ Oudin ~ Petkovic ~ Sevastova ~ Rezai

Expected result. Though in regards to the score, very similar to Patterson in 2011 - let's hope she has learnt from this experience and can put in a better performance across two sets in her next match

Yes an expected result, but I'm pleased to see Boj put up a fight and didn't surrender. This is new territory for her. Despite the loss I hope she enjoyed the experience

Shame she couldnt sneak out that second set as I would of put money on her claiming the win, Boj just needs to believe she can keep with and beat these girls and start competing at this level a lot more...

Hopefully she can have more success in Hobart next week...

Good luck to the West Aussies in 2013!:
Casey Dellacqua Jessica Moore Bojana Bobusic Storm Sanders
as well as Jelena Dokic Sam Stosur Sally Peers Ash Barty Olivia Rogowska Monique Adamczak Sacha Jones Rodionova Sisters Tammi Patterson Vicky Rajicic Azra Hadzic Alison Bai

Re: Jovana Bobus 4 Eva! (Bojana Bobusic Cheering Thread)

Bojana can definitely compete with upper level ITF players like Bratchikova from the baseline, however her serve is truly atrocious! She also really needs to improve her defensive game. I don't know how many running fh's she smacked into the net instead of top spinning back deep. Also her instincts weren't on. Bratchikova wasn't the greatest at dealing with variety and luckily for her, she didn't have to deal with any.
If Bojana was awarded a MD AO WC and drew a top 40 player, I don't think it'd be pretty.
Give her a qualy WC, fair enough. But a hammering in the MD wouldn't do her any good in the long run.
If she can keep improving this year, then maybe they'd consider her for next year.

She has nice groundstrokes and tenacity, but poor variety, defensive game and serve. She definitely has many things that she can easily improve. So it should be good to see her ranking high enough for grand slam qualies soon. Just don't expect much from her at levels higher than ITFs for a little while yet.

She drew Kerber round of AO. Tough match

Hitting the ball well, some great winners to start the match. She seems to be in the right mindset, just hope she stays consistent since its not her usual style of play.

Making it a bit to easy for Kerber, was always going to be a tough task though.

Much better play in the 2nd set. 1-6 3-3. Getting some cheap points on serve which helps.

Just missed 2 break points for 4-2, predicting she will fade away here.
