Lucic wasted too much

Poor Lucic, she just can't quite get it together yet. But i'm sure she'll get back on track.

If she had of been against any other player I would've wanted her to win but I just love Jelena:hearts:.

May 8th, 2008, 08:12 PM
Jele!! Good luck for the tourney girl!
You can do it! :)

May 8th, 2008, 08:13 PM
Congrats Jelena :)

May 8th, 2008, 08:18 PM
Whoop Whoop Jelena

May 8th, 2008, 08:19 PM
Jelena :woohoo:

Win the title!

May 8th, 2008, 08:22 PM
Well Done Jelena! :bounce: :banana:

Would LOVE to see her win the title here at Florence, and take that confidence into Caserta next week and win that too.......that would be the real kick start to her comeback that she needs....If she has 2 great weeks at these tournaments to get her confidence and ranking back up....

May 8th, 2008, 08:25 PM
Congrats Jelena :)

May 8th, 2008, 08:25 PM
She fought for it! That's our girl! :bounce:

Great fight Jelly :banana:

May 8th, 2008, 08:49 PM
That's the spirit, Jelena! :bounce:

May 8th, 2008, 08:57 PM
Tougher than expected, but i actualy very like to see her to winning three-setters. That means this time her comeback is way seriously. She is much fitter and focused and so far have perfect 5-0 W/L in 3-setters this season. It's big change if we compare with her 4-13 W/L between mid of 2004 (when she lose TOP15 status) and 2007.

:drive: Jelena :banana:

May 8th, 2008, 08:59 PM
Great win. It would have been fantastic to see this match live.

May 8th, 2008, 09:02 PM
Congrats Jelena. Win it now.

Mirjana :hug: At least she got to the QF's. Hopefully a stepping stone to better things.

May 8th, 2008, 09:04 PM
Several years ago, you might could have expected these two to be battling in the quarterfinals at Berlin this week vs. the quarters of a $25,000 challenger tournament. Regardless, good for them to compete. Would be nice to see both of them truly rededicate themselves to the game and make a go at the circuit.

May 8th, 2008, 09:07 PM
good fight. win the title now!

May 8th, 2008, 09:08 PM
i talked with a french player was there sybille constance she said to me 2 players played very good today :-)

May 8th, 2008, 09:11 PM
Miki wasted 2 MP !!! She was up 5-3 in second!!!!!!!!!!

May 8th, 2008, 09:21 PM
I'm stoked!

May 8th, 2008, 09:31 PM

May 8th, 2008, 09:36 PM
Lucic. :( Damn.

Oh well, win it all now Jelena!

May 8th, 2008, 09:36 PM
Wow Jelena! :bounce: Great fight back from the brink it seems.

May 8th, 2008, 09:43 PM
Goo Mikiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii
wd jeca!

May 8th, 2008, 10:01 PM
Way to fight it out, Jelena. It's a shame these two players couldn't play later on in the tournament. This would've been a great semi/final. Anyway, keep trying Mirjana, you can still make it back. :)

Take down Schaeffer now, Jelena! :armed:

May 8th, 2008, 10:03 PM
Jelena :) ;)

May 8th, 2008, 10:29 PM
Mirjana :sad:

but well done to Jelena, you must win the title now :fiery:

May 8th, 2008, 10:34 PM
Lucic wasted too much

Mirjana. :sad:
So close, still a very positive tournament,
and I have a feeling she is going to have some great wins this year,
and will be back in the top 100 before years end, she is hitting the ball really well.

Same for Jelena, and I am very happy for her,
now take the Title!!! :hearts:

May 9th, 2008, 01:08 AM
damn mirjana!

May 9th, 2008, 01:11 AM
Jelena :bounce:

May 9th, 2008, 01:31 AM
Jelena :rocker2: So relieved she came back and won this from match points down, excellent fight. She needed this win, and if she wins her SF she'll be a special exempt for the Caserta main draw next week.

Mirjana :hug: Probably should have closed it in 2, tough loss. But she should be pleased with her week overall and hopefully she keeps improving with each event.

Jelena :woohoo:
would be great if she could make the final, anything after that would be a bonus for me

May 9th, 2008, 03:38 AM
Nice win Jelena! Too bad it was at the expense of Lucic's choke, but i'm happy you won!:)

May 9th, 2008, 03:44 AM
good to see it was a close match...i hope mirjana has taken positives from this week :)

well done jelena

May 9th, 2008, 03:47 AM
Well Jelena had to win it. :)

May 9th, 2008, 03:59 AM
YAY DOKIC great result good for ur confidence

May 9th, 2008, 04:39 AM
Miki wasted 2 MP !!! She was up 5-3 in second!!!!!!!!!!

:drool: What a great fight from Jelena! 2 match points down in the second and to come back and win it in the third, that will be great for her confidence.

When these points are added to her ranking after next week, she should be ranked around 370! With a win in the SF she will be around the Top 350, and by winning the whole tournament she can be expected to be ranked around 320th :)

Also if she wins her SF, she will become Australia's 9th best ranked woman!

May 9th, 2008, 05:16 AM
not too bad considering its her first 4 events back and to be ranked in between 320-370...her play will only get better now

May 9th, 2008, 07:02 AM
Good work after saving 2 MPs Jelena :banana:
