Will Sania win this time?

uh,this is not easy for me,as both are my favourites!!!but on the positive side,i will win,whatever the result!! :) but if you see it personally,maybe it swings a bit to jeca...because of her familys tragedy..i think,the reason,she plays so soon again is that she may cope with the whole situation better this way!!and i wish her all the best for the future!!

you are deep in my heart,jeca...

I think Sania has a good chance of winning this time.Both her legs seem to be in working order unlike last time:)
Sad for poor Jelena.I didn't know she had a family tragedy.

What happened in Jelena's family? I didn't know that either.

jankovic can do it!

First I am sorry about Jankovic's family loss. As for the match I think grass suits Mirza's game alot. On any other surface I'd say probably Jankovic but on grass I'd be suprised if Mirza didn't have a comfortable win.

oops, i voted for mirza by mistake. jankovic is way better.

Jelena's 17y old cousin died just before RG started, she lost qualifying doubles match. I give slight advantage to Mirza, but Jelena will win 100% if she feels fine

Sania just saved few match points in 2nd set: 1-6 5-5....

Jun 7th, 2005, 02:42 PM
Oops...double fault. Sania lost 1-6 5-7 :sad:

I'm surprised Mirza lost in straights. That forehand is :eek:

Jun 7th, 2005, 03:32 PM
Yeah her forehand is amazing(good Bh too), but she's also really inexperienced at this level,and her serving today was very poor.She is learning a new serve and it looks like she had some trouble with her first serves(46%!And she didn't win many points on them!).Jelena is a top class player and quite experienced too(top 10 potential IMO).Another thing is that Sania seems to start her matches slowly, and someone like Janko will not let her get away with that.This kid has a lot of potential, but she needs to go back to the drawing board for some things :p She needs to play a lot more top players to make the best of that potential.
I'm happy for Janko today.She seems to be bouncing back well from her family problems. :worship:

Yeah Jela, well done!!!!!!
