Against Lindsay (Dubai) and against Myskina (Wimbledon) last year. I`m so sorry she lost both matches...

Ana Ivanovic

Jelena Jankovic

Vojislava Lukic

Good luck to: Davenport, Srebotnik, Kirilenko, Kostanic, Mirza and Serbian DC squad (Djokovic, Tipsarevic, Zimonjic, Bozoljac, Pashanski and Troicki)

Re: The most interesting Jelenas match...

JJ vs. Justine in USO 1/2 final, JJ vs. Kim in Sydney final and JJ vs. Safarova in Wimby 3r are best for me. I hope she'll win more of these spectacular matches in the future, cause atm she more losing them than winning

Re: The most interesting Jelenas match...

It's so hard to choose just one but I would probably go with her match against Myskina at last year's Wimbledon

Re: The most interesting Jelenas match...

Indeed a very difficult choice to pick only match, because there were many interesting and also important matches.

Firstly, there was this SF at the US Open against Justine. She won the first set and was leading in the second. Jelena was control of the match. But suddenly Justine seemed to be injured and Jelena completely lost her momentum and lost the whole match. Her game broke down completely, especially in the third set. In the later matches against Justine there were very similar situations. Especially the QF at Berlin is some kind of blueprint for her still existing problem to beat Justine, who is the last "seal" Jelena has to break.

Another important milestone match in terms of confidence building was the Charleston SF against Venus. This match was a very tough and close battle. She already had beaten Venus before and this fact also seemed to be a factor here.

She won the first set quite easily, because Venus' serve was off and she also made a lot of UE's. But the second set was some kind of a complete turnaround in favor of Venus. She often was able to put a lot of pressure on Jelena and forced her into the defense. As a result of this, Jelena was falling back and she also played too passive during the second. An old weakness of her. In terms of all the past experiences with her matches, you would normally expect her to loose. Venus "stole" away the momentum and was on the "victory lane". But this time it was different, because the third set showed us some other impression. It was remarkable to see, that Jelena was able to keep up the focus. Despite her normal behavior in this kind of situations, she stayed calm and at a high level of concentration. The third set was really close till the very end and Jelena finally won this "thriller" in a close tie-break.

I think in terms of confidence building this was a very important match for Jelena. First she mentally overcame a very difficult situation and later she won the final and achieved her very first Tier I tournament win. Another surprising fact was, that she was able to achieve this on clay. A surface which she never really called her favourite. So for me this SF against Venus is maybe the true cornerstone for her following great success at the European clay court season. And we all know, that this success was and still is vital for her current ranking and reputation.

Re: The most interesting Jelenas match...

At this point, I'm going to go with JJ vs. Lucie 3rd round Wimbledon. Why? Because I think it's showed more than any other match how far she's come. She was somewhat down and out in that match...although she was keeping it close the whole time, she was only 4 points away from losing it and frankly Lucie was outplaying her up until that 2nd set tiebreak. But JJ showed championship form in gutting out the 2nd set and then she showed her fitness in closing out the 3rd set relatively straightforwardly. She used all her strengths and came up with the win. Unfortunately, not quite enough was left in the tank for her match against Bartoli, but I'll always remember the 3rd round match as a defining moment.

Re: The most interesting Jelenas match...

DUBAI 2006. final against Lindsay Davenport, that's where she really shined big for the first time, proving that she can and will take out big names. One ball decided that match...

Re: The most interesting Jelenas match...

OK, since this year is coming to end, for me most interesting matches JJ played in this year were final of Sydney vs. Clijsters and match with Safarova at Wimbledon

Re: The most interesting Jelenas match...

Toronto final with JH - that was awesome - the one game that even Justine said lasted for "like 80 minutes"

Like watching people play chess on a tennis court and (IMHO) one of the best chances JJ had this year to put Justine away...

I'm with you my friend. But I would add the Berlin QF against my other queen. Well it was a bitter loss against Justine in the end....but the way of this loss left some open questions till this very day.

Jelena Jankovic, Angelique Kerber, Maria Sharapova, Vika Azarenka
