Re: JJ movement against Serena in Olympics

JJ moved extremely well, except for one slip on the crucial break in the first set. (There was only 1 BP total in the first set) This match was the best JJ has played since in like 6-7 months. Every time JJ got it to 30-30 on Serena's serve (she was able to get so many balls back, and Serena would miss a couple of sitters), Serena would just send down a couple of aces.

The second set JJ unraveled a bit (her running forehand was completely exploited by Serena) and cost her that 2nd set. She really was rock solid off the BH and movement the whole match. She was looking a bit dejected in the second. But she was playing the best player of this generation on grass (who is in good form) while JJ has been losing matches left and right. So it was a good performance.
