Mary lost against Jelena

Mary lost against Jelena in two sets 7/6 6/3. it was really a good match between the two. Mary played really well. if she continue to work hard like she is doing it now she will be fully fit for next year. She was serving very well, where she needs to work more its her fitness. Her moving its not yet perfect but much better then at the Us open. Even she lost she played a good match . she needs to continue like this. now she will have one week more training before Zurick.

Yeah she played a great match....to bad she had to play Jelena in the first round. The swedish commentator said that she probably would have beaten most of the other players in the draw except Jankovic cuz she is so full of confidence right now and I have to agree. I just wonder after this match what the heck she did in Luxembourg last week?

Go Mary, nice to have u back!

i agree - i wish she had played jelena later on


if you saw alyona play last week then you would be less surprised. she was absolutely falwless in the final with extremely powerful groundies but great movement too. she was playing like a top 15 player if not top 10. she probably played as well or even better than jankovic played today

Mary is definitely on the right track!!!!!!!!! :)

I totally agree with you guys. Mary did a very good match. She was serving well, especially in second serve. She was hitting the ball very clearly being pretty aggressive, and she did a couple of very spectacular shots. She was obviously enjoing her time on the court. She should have won the tie break coz Jelena wasn't at her best at that moment. But, this is the way it goes. It is always hard to win the key points when u did not play much and she resisted really well in tough moments. Though, I found Mary slow and heavy, she has the right attitude on court but she has to improve her fitness, losing weight is compulsory! Her footwork was not good, making her shots less precise. And as she pointed out during the US Open, she still takes the ball a bit behind her on the forehand side. If she does what she has to do, she'll rock next year!

oh yeah i forgot to mention the second serve!

that is the one part of the game that looks 1000 times better than the last time i saw her play. in san diego against sharapova it was short and slow with nothing on it. in this match it was much improved and she was even winning some cheap points off it

Mary Well atleast there is an improvement. No shame losing to a great player like Jankovic. Hope you can get a better draw at Zurich

oh wow, i've just seen her outfit in full and omg i love it it really suits her.

And i'm also very impressed with the way Mary played even though the score didn't go in her favour.

A Mary Pierce fan through and through,
But admires Amélie Mauresmo greatly.

------------------------------

We love you Mary !

Mary is slowly on her way back, pushing the top players. If she can keep healthy im sure she will have a great 2007.

Amazing, Mary. Good serve, groundstrokes and power. Movement will improve with training, and jankovic made mary run into bad positions. But great performance
