Striking the ball well.

Mauresmo looks like she's putting more power on the FH...anyone else notice this?

They're both hitting the ball really well so far, I'm impressed. Quality women's tennis. :worship:

I wish she could have played a scrub first up rather than dear Amelie. :(

Same here! She is playing well. I never get tired of watching Jelena's forehand being struck hard and deep into the corners. :drool:

There have already been some long rallies and Jelena is well into this match.


Break to love for 3-2. That FH!!!

I love how Dokic can come out of nowhere and be pretty much our best player. Shows how true talent never leaves. :)

Typical Jelena. Hitting well, cranking winners everywhere and then..she has to serve. :sobbing:

amelie is playing like a top ten player = and dokic is dominating! woah she is fcking amazing

So Disrespectful

She's moving really well too. Aside from those stupid double faults, Jelena's game is as good as it ever was, I'll even say she's added more power.

Jelena's groundstrokes are still amazing! Its a shame that someone with that much talent has been completely absent from the game for so long. I hope she has a successful comeback.

Is Jelena aware that 2nd serves exist?

Nvm what I said about Amelie's FH. It's still as dreadful as ever. :tape:

:help: I loved it when she was confident though, she could really push the top girls when she was on song. She's dumping them into the net now. :rolleyes:

I cannot believe how well Jelena is playing -- particularly return of serve and groundstrokes. :eek: :eek: :eek:

2 sp's gone, Jelena has to serve for it now. :scared:

This will be the match for Jelena IMO. If she loses this set I don't see her coming back in the 2nd.

Jelena has been playing superbly, I'm really shocked, the serve is a bit ropey but her groundies are smoking.

So Disrespectful

No live scoring in here guys.

She´s hitting the ball well. Could be one of the stories of 2009 seing her among the top30 again.

Dave, stop live scoring in here. :o

Win or lose, Dokic is back everybody.

this is my first time seeing her play...apart from serve she looks great....anyone who knows her can give me a break down of her game and a comparison to any top players :)

The serve is terrible. How many DFs is that now?

^ I think she's looking pretty damn good too. No doubt her fitness will keep improving as she plays more and more.

I can totally see how she lost to a 15 year old now.
I doubt she was outhit. Probably just got a easy lead and every time DF'd it away

Petrova can't hit her strokes as cleanly as Dokic...not in a million years.

Someone teach the girl how to put some spin onto the second serve. :help::help: It cost her the set.

The serve is holding everything back. There's no doubt Jelena still has it though.

how old is dokic now?

Jan 5th, 2009, 04:46 AM
Her mental state cost her the first set--she just gets down on herself--rushes everything--just throws it away--didn't she know whe would have to work on her confidence--frustrating!!!!!!!!!!

Is it just me, or is there something odd about her? It's her facial expressions or lack of them. I cannot quite put my finger on it...... :confused:

She's fallig back on her backhand much too often in this match.:(

Jelena hits sooooooooooooooooo flat! She has great technique on her groundstrokes!!! But her second serve has no spin what so ever.... GO JELENA!
