It's really easy to see who she models her game after. Very similar serve, forehand and backhand slice.

Good point!

Has Jankovic changed her serve motion? It looks to me she's using her legs a lot more and finishing her serve more into the court.
She also accentuated the little step when serving

Don't they have to pay for their time outs? If so, then more money for the WTA.

She still has a long road to do to have an upper body like Serena, Elena or Safina's ones.

One of the commentators said yesterday that once you do it more than 6 times you pay, but Slams don't count.

Which means

Translation: My opponent is playing really well right now, and I am not, so let me take an injury time-out to throw off her momentum and bring that momentum over on my side.

It wasn't even a full time out, just a minute or so, she's having problems with blisters

:lol: @ Jelena's antics already

Flipkens plays somewhat like Henin, other than being remotely good.

Another thread proving that Henin is missed by the tennis world!!!!!!

Comeback Justine so these people would stop comparing you to third rate professionals..........

Jelena is playing error free tennis at the mooment but she is not looking like an AO winner by ANY means. :tape:

Jelena looks like a 20-30 ranked player at best.

:spit: playing very nice tennis in R1 and now playing forehand slice time and time again :tape:
what the fuck is this, Jelena??? This is top50 stuff :weirdo:

Flipkens is just playing a good match.Agressive fh and net play and good use of her slice.Plus JJ doesn't seem focus all time.She just wasted a 40-0 lead by doing pretty much nothing with the ball.

Miss Amor
Jan 21st, 2009, 04:18 AM
Even a mere inferior shadow of Henin outplays JJ :haha:

JJ is getting outplayed by an injured player. :lol: The only slam she can win is the FO, and even then, she has to hope the top players are off.

Would be interesting to see her take it to a 3rd set.

Jelena needs her old shoes back. She has been tinkering with her new shoes almost every game.

:haha: at all the people criticizing Jelena .... Kristen doing the same ._.

Kristen plays a lot like Samantha Stosur as well. It would be nice to see her have a higher ranking soon. :bounce:

Jelena is playing so sluggish ._.

Well, it looks like Jankovic will probably get out of this in two sets, but, nonetheless, Flipkens should be proud of herself. She played very well at certain points.

The Flipkens show is over, world number 1 finally beat her :bowdown:

Unlike Henin she has one of the worse backhand on the tour though. :tape:

:spit: Seriously? That's an insult to Henin. Flipkens played well, but the girl missed some BIG opportunities and doesnt nearly have the power or consistency of Henin. She's not nearly as quick or fast either.
