Re: Nadia rocking on clay 2012

I like Nadia but I am almost surprised she is still playing. She is a shadow of her old self at this point.

Re: Nadia rocking on clay 2012

Unfortunately Ivanovic beat Nadia 7-5 6-1

BTW in her R1 match Nadia had a great serve day: 16 Aces, 2 DFs

R2 vs Serena. Head To Head 6-3 for Serena, but Nadia won the last 2 matches

Re: Nadia rocking on clay 2012

Serena beat Nadia 4-6 6-2 6-3

But Nadia can be proud of this match. She played a strong first set, with excellent serving. No break point for Serena. Then in 2nd set Serena fought harder and moved better. Nadia became more and more neagtive. That is something Nadia must work on. The body language should always be positive.

Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Re: Nadia rocking on clay 2012

Unbelievable. Nadia lost 3-6 2-6 to Pironkova

And I thought Nadia would easily reach the QF here. I forgot Nadia can lose to anyone anytime. Pathetic loss. Pironkova lost her first matches on clay this year in Stuttgart, Budapest, Madrid and Rome. And now she beats Nadia of course, and even worse without any problems. Nadia must have played absolute shit. I guess (once again) she didn`t move her feet and sprayed every return in the net or out, because she could not break Pironkova`s serve at all. Shocking scoreline. Nadia is such a big headcase. And her footwork/movement is so weak. Time to work hard and improve this. Or keep sucking.

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Re: Nadia rocking on clay 2012

No problems against Benesova. Nadia won 6-3 6-3

R2 vs Scheepers. Hope Nadia is consistent. Then she should win this

Re: Nadia rocking on clay 2012

Happy Nadia reached FO R3. Another good win for her

Stosur next will be very tough. But Nadia can beat the world #6 if she plays her best tennis. The last 2 matches were dramatic, very close. Stosur won at US Open 2011 with 7-6 6-7 7-5. Nadia won their last meeting at Indian Wells 2012 with 6-1 6-7 7-6. I expect another big battle. Stosur is the favourite, all the pressure on her.

Nadia must move her feet, stay aggressive and attack Stosur`s backhand. And serve well

Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."
