Some very impressive stuff from JJ in the last 2 sets.
She can make it look so easy sometimes:)

Great performance from JJ in the last two sets.
She should play aggressive tennis more often. She proved that she can!

Poor 2 second sets from Peer.

Way to go Jelena. She showed why she's higher ranked than Shahar.

Shahar did well to take a set off Jelena.

Shahar is capable of a lot more than her results suggest I believe. She just needs one really good breakthrough tournament and to scalp a few top players to give her much confidence.

I agree, Shahar is under-rated here, everyone just thinks she's a boring pusher. But I love her attitude and sometimes that is worth more in a match against a higher ranked opponent than the countless big-hitting tennis beauties who fold mentally in those situations.

Shahar great fight at the end!
I was really upset that in 30-15 for JJ in the last game, Shahar hit a great bh that JJ could barley return, the ball cought the net and gave JJ 2 MP's. After that point I know that Jelena will win the next one and the entire match.
JJ is one of my faves too so it is not that disappointing. Plus, I think that this kind of matches will help Shahar in the future, she is only 20.

Thirded.
I believe Shahar is a good player who will be entering the top 10 some time in 2008.

Shit: There is no sound on Eurosport I, I fell asleep halfway through the second set (cause I had an early start today). Looked like a good match with Jelena in more offensive mode.

Kinda dissappointed by Shahar.
She is losing lots of crucial match momentums this year,
I still believe it will come together next year :)

didn't seem to defend that well today.
a shame because her offense game was on.

Congrats to JJ, who played well :)

lol..i think Jankovic is losing it

76 in 3rd to Chaky
75 in 3rd to Kirilenko
losing to Ivanovic in LA having match points
losing to Venus 76 at US Open
losing to Szavay leading 51 and having match points

if there is a choke queen noone stands near to JJ!:lol:

After Justine, now we have Jelena "lucky shots" Jankovic:hearts:

BTW good match..
Jelena really raised up her level on the 2nd and the 3rd sets.. well done JJ!

Shahar :hug: Don't worry, you'll get there! Great effort today!

She played lots of matches, in natural that she has more close losses than others.

Fact is, Shahar was dominating at the first set-and-a-half lots of times this year, and then just suddently lost like 9 straights games, and completely give away the mumentum. I'm just hoping its because of experience :shrug:

Great match!

Jelena was so aggressive in the the 2nd and 3rd set, that was amazing! Shahar tried her best, but it wasn't enough against super JJ. :worship:

I hope Jelena can win against Nadia and set up another great SF against Justine(If she'll beat Dani/Elena).

A wonderful End from Jelena!
She starts playing very well after 3:1 in the second, because she´s getting more agressive and wakeup after a slow start!!!

Congrats My Number 1!!
Good Luck against Nadia, it will be a tough match but you can DO it!!!

Great performance from JJ in the last two sets.
She should play aggressive tennis more often. She proved that she can!

its hard to win matches playin agrgessively when your opponent can hit the ball a lot harder like ivanovic or venus therefore she retrieves and causes errors. peer cant blast the ball so jelena has the chance to play aggressively throughout the entire match.
