Nadia rocking on clay 2012

Starting in Charleston, then Nadia goes to Europe



Berlin final 2005 vs Henin. Nadia can play great on clay

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

Good Luck

Re: Nadia rocking on clay 2012

Well done, Nadia! Craybas should be no problem

I think clay really helps Nadia. We all know Nadia is not moving as quick as she used to in her peak time. On hard the ball comes back too fast, the clay gives Nadia way more time.

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

Re: Nadia rocking on clay 2012

Such a close match against Craybas on clay At least Nadia won this mess of a match

Choking 5-1 in 2nd set away, having to save 2 MPs at 5-6 and then choking again at 6-3 in TB to 6-6

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

Re: Nadia rocking on clay 2012

I hope she can do well on clay this year. It is probably still her best surface and the best chance to do some real damage at this late stage of her career?

Re: Nadia rocking on clay 2012

Gajdosova retired after Nadia won the first set 7-6. Into QF !

Next is #1 seed Vinci. We all know Nadia is a million times better. Upset her, Nadia !

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

Re: Nadia rocking on clay 2012

The exact score was 6-2 1-6 6-4. Nadia was leading 3-0 in 3rd set ? What a choke

Her problem was poor footwork/movement. Nadia needs to improve that, it used to be so much better

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