I'm still not over this loss, but one win in Stuttgart is a success indeed. This is like YEC with a bigger draw, all the opponents are tricky.

I don't understand your reactions of before too.. JJ played really well, she was in confidence and all credit goes to lisicki who played even better in fact before the match when all you said that jelena could win this easily I said to don't understimate sabine and in fact I was right! So stop to criticize or insult jelena, maybe she could play better in some moments but nothing more!

You were right. I also had a bad feeling about this match because Lisicki is a ballbasher which means she can always suddenly hit a purple patch, and she had the support of the home crowd.
I'm not angry at Jelena, I'm angry at her bad luck. But I do think she wasted chances to turn it around in the second set and that she can't hit a volley to save her life, but nobody's perfect. I'm actually really sad about this loss.

I was convinced she would win this easily. Sabine lost to Cadantu in straights recently. Who would expect her to hit 12 aces, only one df, to keep a low number of unforced errors etc.

That's the way the brainless ballbasher crumbles (when they see JJlena on the other side of the net).

Yes. She beat a Top 10 player. We should be quite happy.

I calmed down now, more or less! Lisicki played like she played but I'm angry at JJ!

Her approach to this match was so poor! A complete difference to the match against Sam. I hope this grounds her a bit and plays like she should in Madrid!

I'm better now with JJ's loss after Sabine's QF.

Loss to Sabine is more acceptable than loss to player playing in her pajamas.

I was more confident that JJ would beat Stosur than I was Lisicki.

Sabine literally plays 5-8 good tournaments a year (as of late) and thats about it. I watched the 5 min highlights against Burnett, and knew Jelena would struggle. And if Sabine had no confidence I knew JJ would win in straights.

Since its Germany, everyone would be in favor for Sabine so I kew her confidence would be fairly high. So that in turn gave her the added boost to play better.

I didn't see any of this match, but to me it seems like she had a great day in the office for an extreme BB. I agree with what Brena said about how it sucks Sabine just happens to find her range when Jelena is trying to get to the top of the game again WHERE SHE BELONGS. We all knew Sabine would crumble against BMS, no matter how good or bad BMS played. So again it sucks more that BMS disposed of her easily.

I'm confident that Jelena will just see this as a little speed bump, because she's been on fire as of late. JJ is much of a confidence player and I don't see this as anything bad. She hasn't performed well in Stuttgart in recent years so I think it'd be different if she's made the SF or finals here the last 3-5 years or something.

I was shockingly not super upset with Jelena ( maybe because I wasn't actually watching her waste momentum to get back in the second set ) I'm usually muttering to myself the next day with many obscenities not meant for small children's ears

She has like no more points to defend until Birmingham so I want to see a top 15 entrance (and seeding at RG) for Jelena. I think she can do it.

It's basically existential waterboarding.

Talking Re: Jelena Jankovic Cheering Thread - 2013 Season - Volume 14

I hope JJ will win the double tournament The german team (with lisicki) won the first 6-1 but JJ and Lucic are 4-1

And Sabine lost - expected, that's how she and her game are, but she is a nice girl, such a shame she has a game I don't like and a game that doesn't work all the time.
