Oh my God the EASIEST forehand volley possibly and it doesn't even land in the doubles alley

The matches where JJ plays her best, her feet are firmly on the baseline or just behind it.

She's playing so far behind the baseline here.

This is ugly tennis the first two games. She seems unsure of herself, tepid groundstrokes, sloppy swings, a little bit slow.

Her defensive BH slice looks good, though. And 1st serve...when it's in.

I cheer on scrubs.

another sloppy volley, she stands too close to the service line, always catches her volleys late

As I'm reading your comments about how Jelena can't hit a volley, she nets a put away volley truly amazing.

I cheer on scrubs.

Nara hands it over

JJ needs to play better, needs to try and dictate
