Re: Johanna-Jenny Larsson

Not a bad match from Johanna, not her best though...

Positive signs for the rest of the year, not her best surface and she still gave #2 a challenge.

Backhand looks more and more steady and the forehand had great depth today which allowed Jo-La to be successful

Re: Johanna-Jenny Larsson

Agreed. I like the way Wilson has her using that deep slice to neutralize her tendency to get a lot little wild on the backhand side. With her speed, she can cover most returns of that shot.

Her serve was pretty consistent, too. Hopefully that's a permanent change. Really, aside from her inability to convert the big points--which is always going to be tough in a match where you're a massive underdog--you couldn't have asked much more from Jo-La.

Hopefully she'll move forward with a lot of confidence, because she really did play well enough to beat most of the women she's likely to face this year. Had the draw been the least bit kind to her she'd most likely be in Rnd 2.

Let's hope this is the beginning of a return to her 2011 form. It looks like she has added a few new tools to her kit and what she really needs now is the confidence to use them. This was actually a good result for her under the circumstances, and I hope she sees it that way. If she plays at this level consistently she'll be back in the Top 50 by mid-year.

Re: Johanna-Jenny Larsson

Johanna is back in Sweden according to her FB page. I assume that means she's going to be playing in Europe and not Asia, and that indoor training won't mess with her acclimatizing to conditions.

I hate that she has to take such a break after seeming to find something of a groove, albeit in a losing cause.

Stupid draw. She played well enough she could have gotten another match or two under her belt.

She does make that Adidas outfit look nice, though.

Re: Johanna-Jenny Larsson

Yeah, but she friended me, so she's obviously not very picky.

Our sweet Jo-La is not always the best with technology. She (or somebody in her camp) set her Facebook up as a personal page not a public figure page.

I just remember when she blogged about her struggles to figure out Twitter. Johanna has a really nice, self-deprecating sense of humor, one of the many reasons to like her. It's a shame she doesn't blog/post more often.

IIRC they only got steam power in Norrland last year. Give them time.

to find someone to talk to
who likes the way I am
who when he sees me wants to again

Yes. I believe prior to that Jo-La's hotness was their primary source of heat.

Re: Johanna-Jenny Larsson

Forgot Jo was playing here, Peer in Q1 - could actually be tricky, you never know Peer can play really good sometimes and dreadful at other times...

Re: Johanna-Jenny Larsson

Jo took care of Peer 6-2, 7-5.

Had to follow it on Livescore, so I'm not sure how Jo looked. She did have some aces(!) and dominated the early going. Was up 3-0 in the second. Don't know if she got tight at that point, or if Peer picked it up, or both, but Peer pulled even before Jo-La took control from 5-5.

All-in-all, a good showing IMHO. She looked good, and got it back together under pressure against a player who was once in the Top 20 and was, as the #5 seed in qualifying, expected to beat Jojo.

Hopefully she can keep up this level of play.

A good win for Johanna, she was 2-0 down first set so won 6 games in a row to take set 1! Hopefully another win today against Dolonc.
