Re: Johanna-Jenny Larsson

Johanna won 63 64, it's not a big result but actually it's quite an important win in terms of getting into a pattern of winning and winning in straight sets...

- It's the first time since Ningbo (WTA 125) in September, that Johanna has won back-to-back matches.

- It's the first time since Bastad in July, that Johanna has won back-to-back matches in straight sets.

- It's the first time since Cincinatti (2012), that Johanna has won back-to-back matches in straight sets on a hard court.

For me these two wins in Paris are actually a really good sign, not necessarily the best players to beat but Jo-La is winning matches on hard courts in straight sets - a good sign considering we know Jo-La is best on clay.

I think getting back with Mattias Arvidsson as coach has been a fantastic move, Jo seems to really be more confident on court and I believe she has taken a lot from her decent performance against Azarenka.

I just hope she can win tomorrow, it's so important Jo keeps winning she needs to start this season on a positive note.

Re: Johanna-Jenny Larsson

Nice stats

Pfizenmaier used to be pretty good indoors though, beat Flipkens in an ITF for example. Good luck

but somehow I can't help from hoping

Re: Johanna-Jenny Larsson

Johanna qualifies with a 75 63 win!!! She played solidly saving 2 set points in the 1st and coming back from a break down 3 times. Clean baseline hitting from Jo, she was quite a way behind the baseline but defending really well - which was actually very effective against Pfizenmaier. A good match from Johanna tactically, some nice shots in there too but Jo wasn't really being particularly aggressive today; she didn't need to be.

Another big win for Johanna in terms of statistics, I know she doesn't play much indoors but here are some shocking stats...

- First time ever she has won 3 matches in a row in a WTA event indoors.

- First time in WTA or ITF since Barnstaple in October 2010, that she has won 3 matches in a row indoors.

- First time in WTA or ITF since Biberach in February 2010, that she has won 3 matches in a row in straight sets indoors.

Hopefully Meusberger though the other 3 (Navarro, Voegele & Knapp aren't completely terrifying).

Re: Johanna-Jenny Larsson

Main Draw is updated with qualifiers,

Johanna takes on Carla Suarez Navarro - the worst possible draw

H2H - (0-3) - Most recent meeting was last year in Rosmalen where Johanna was easily beaten.

Good Luck Johanna!

Re: Johanna-Jenny Larsson

A lot to like about this qualifying run. Jo-La had a nice upset over a higher rated player, handily beat the player she was supposed to beat, and dealt with a player from whom she might have expected some tough play. This is exactly the kind of run Jo needs to get her ranking up where (IMHO) it belongs and to pick up that elusive first title somewhere.

CSN is a tough draw, but Jo-La has nothing to lose. If she can play a strong match like she did against Vika it can only help her confidence.

Good to hear she showed a little vinegar today. One of the reasons I like Jo-La is that she is feisty but never bratty.

Re: Johanna-Jenny Larsson

Disappointing end to a nice run, though Jo did salvage some honor with a strong second set.

Overall, though, this was a good week IMHO. Three wins, only lost to a Top 20 player and even in the 6-1 first set she took CSN to deuce in most of the games. Hard to win when your opponent is serving 85% on first service. But it's good to get to play some of the game's elite to take the measure of where you are, so I hope Jo and her team will see the positive side of hanging with two highly ranked players for a set over the last three weeks.

I kid around about Jo-La sometimes, but I really do like her spirit, her quirky game and her sense of humor. I hope she can keep building on all she has accomplished this week. As I've said before, her serve is better, that slice backhand gives her an option over her iffy two-hander and she seems to have taken some of the wasted motion out of her forehand. So she really is implementing new tricks into her game and making a real effort to get better. Gotta love that in a player who could have been content to just hang out somewhere in the top 100 and collect a paycheck.

Re: Johanna-Jenny Larsson

Jo-La will apparently be leading Sweden against the Poles. Poland is fielding a decent team, so this is a good chance for Jo to get some more work in against some pretty decent players in the Radwanska sisters and to play a little doubles.

I like it when Jo plays doubles.

My kids have Swedish ancestors even if I don't, so I have a little vested interest in Sweden winning.
