:hearts: fought so hard!.

It is nice to see a Chinese succeding in China! Crowd went nuts :lol: after every point Zheng won! :lol: Nice atmosphere!

Match quality wasn't the best actually, but the crowd made it for that.
Jie had to recover from a break down 3 times in the last set. It was definitely a break fest the 3rd set.

Congrats Zheng

one of the shittest matches I have ever seen, but Jie Zheng won based on 100% heart. both players were playing their C- games


7 out of the ten games played in the third set was a break of serve. jie zheng finally held in a tight game and it was over!

Serena and Venus and Dinara should have no problem winning a medal here.

Well done Jie! :worship:

Llagostera...no holds in the last set! :help:

My commentator kept on calling Safina "Darina Safina" during the match" :crying2:

I watched the match from the 2nd set (actually, 1st set TB ZJ down 4-6)
I pretty appreciated Zheng's spirit
but she gotta improve her serve,
that's really pathetic.

In reality, Jie Zheng should have won a lot easier, but the Chinese crowd is putting too much pressure on her, chanting "Add gas, Zheng Jie! Add gas, Zheng Jie" every 5 seconds. :lol:

Oh my gosh. That was a much closer match than I was expecting. She's got to improve her form if she wants to put up a fight against Safina next round.

Zheng Jie is becoming a focused player. She has game especially for her size and her serve. I know she is thrilled to win at home. Well done kiddo. :)

great win Zheng!!


jie said shes very confident after this win bc nuria def her all the time :lol:

i can sorta see why. Her game doesn't match up well to that sort of retrieving high bouncing/moon ball play.

Luckily for Jie, Safina doesn't look like she brought her best tennis to Beijing. :lol:
Good luck tomorrow! :D

Congratulations to Jie! It was a survival of the fittest, both looked exhausted from the heat and humility which contributed to their poor play. I really don't see how Jie can progress much further, she she looks spent both physically and emotionally, and it only gets tougher.
