The screaming, ball snatching - the general really.

I did never got my answer in other topics :) so I will give it another try again!

What do you think about Nicole her attitude? Is she such a bitch? :confused: Is she arrogant? What what what what makes you all feel anti-vaidisova?

Please someone :) answer me, i'm just right here! Hello ! Thanks :)

Great job Jelena! :cool:

The way Nicole has been playing her
1st two rounds this was definitely winnable
for Jelena and though she choked in the 1st set
and a bit at the end of the 3rd, she toughed it out! :yeah:

After the big, fat choke in the first set, I expected Jelena to lose in straight sets. But thanks heavens, she donīt let herself discourage. Even if I was afraid again in the third set, after Nicoleīs rebreak at 0:5.

Good luck for the third round, Jeca. But please, please without choke. :rolleyes:

Good win. Now I hope she follows it up. It's time for a slam QF. She's too talented. She has all the weapons to beat Sveta but she should really stop wasting those leads.

Too bad Nicole :sad: :secret: You both are on my sig, but out of the two of you I do prefer Jelena :)

Well after the first set i wanted to turn off the scores. It's all mental with her. She doesn't need a coach she's got the game, but the ability to close the set or match is :o-terrible...Well done Jelo Krelo! if we go at your GS this year: 2r,3r,4r it's time for QF! Go get it! Run Kuzzy around!

Man, I'm so relieved for Jeca! And really impressed too, she really held it together! To be honest, if she had lost to Vaidisova I would not have been too shocked as Vaidisova has beaten her in the past and is a really good player. But when she lost that lead I was like "No Jeco, please!" and just thinking MYSKINA WIMBLEDON repeat! I had to stop watching! It's such a good mental victory for her that she got through that blip. And a very good victory full-stop!

Ajde!

Sep 1st, 2006, 09:39 PM
i wasnt that surprised jelena won but i was surprised in the way she won

who knew it would be that easy? nicole was just giving her the match with so many errors. after her collapse at the end of the 1st set it was good to see jelena get her head together at the start of the 2nd, and from then on it was pretty simple

Was at the match for the end of the second and the third and from what I saw, Nicole just played awful. Couldn't get her first serve in...couldn't keep the ball on the court. Not a quality match but Jelena seems like a really nice and friendly girl. She was joking with some guys about closing out sets - something like she'll close out nicely for the guy she was talking to the next time she plays. :lol:

Based on their recent results, I expected Jelena to win. I've even been more impressed by Azarenka than Vaidisova.

vaidisova just played appalling tennis. she made 2 many mistakes & couldn't control her emotions when she was in a losing situation which led 2 her having little tantrums on court :fiery: (eg: slamming her racquet on the ground & screaming).

but jankovic just played better than her & stepped it up when she needed 2. just more composed on court than nicole there. let's see if jelena can step it up against kuznetsova. that's the question.

delicatecutter
Sep 2nd, 2006, 04:35 AM
Vaidisova is over-ranked. Jankovic is a way better player and I'm so happy she pulled this one out!! She's the one who should be in the Top 10.

Ajde Jelena!!

thanks for vindicating what i say about you being a long way from winning slams Nicole :) She is still horribly inconsistent when a player against quality players who hit with depth and don't hand her unforced errors like Mauresmo and Venus did at RG.

Her game is very effective against lesser players because it's so much easier for her to implement her game but she really has a lot of work to do still.

Well done Jelena ;)

Bullshit. Jelena has a lot of fans. Just because they donīt start 999 senseless Threads about her, it doesnīt mean, they donīt exist. ;)
And I know a lot of tennis fans, who donīt have Jelena as mainfavorit, but in their extended circle of player they like.
