Poor Meng has no change agaisnt other consistent players with just that little more firepower...
They wont miss and she can't hit winners...

I thought this would happen

Jill knows how to win tennis matches, Meng knows how to play fetch. Meng Yuan has always and will always struggle against players who have been on tour for awhile.

At 34 years old and still comfortably in the top 100, there really is no reason for Jill to be thinking about retirement at all. Far from it, she is now at a point in her career where if she can just maintain her current level a while longer she has the chance to transform her career from that of being a routine journeywomen to that of being one of those careers that becomes remarkable for their longevity and professionalism. To still be playing quality tennis at 34 is pretty special, but if she is still doing it in 2 or 3 years then it really does become something very amazing. I have to say, I am slowing becoming a fan myself. :bowdown:

Yuan does indeed play fetch .... she did this against another consistent veteran baseliner, Dechy, in winbledon, and Dechy just patiently ran Yuan's ass around the court for 2 hours, not hitting too hard, but not hitting too soft either. Yuan couldnt handle it... because she couldnt get into Dechy's head.

Indeed Yaun does better against inexperienced big hitting Russian ball crushers like Kleybanova than she does against Dechy, Craybas, Garbin type players who won't be bothered by her consistency and can 'measure' their attack without just slamming the ball.
Meng Yuan does have good qualities to her game, but she needs a coach, and needs to work on her game... she can be rather impressive to watch when playing against a very powerful player who crushes the ball without thinking, but against many experienced/smart players, her ultra defensive game eventually gets taken apart.

I've always loved Jill and cheered for her whenever I got a chance at the USO. This is a nice result, hopefully she can continue her good play against Akgul as well.

JILL!!!! OMG! WTF! This result made my day! :worship::worship: I know you can beat Akgul (you already have this year) keep going w/ your 2nd consecutive Quarter-final.

You've got to hand it to Jill...she started her full-time pro career late after graduating from college. Now she is the highest ranked player with a college degree and she's not showing any signs of slowing down. JIll is by faaar my favorite player on the tour right now. GO GIANT-KILLER JILL keep truckin' in Korea

They wont miss and she can't hit winners...Exactly. At first I was like DANG! Mengy got double bagelled? I had the pleasure of watching her live at last year's AIG Open and thought what a tremendous grinder she was. But apparently, Jill has more experience at grinding... by HEAPS! But still, a double bagel though.... :o
