Damnit! Anna *slap* with those two DF's to end... match did not deserve to finish that way.

Patches of nervy play, but have to say that was a really entertaining encounter and Dokic really deserved it. I kept thinking Anna would break back in the third but Dokic kept it together really well. I'm not as crushed as I thought I might be, because Anna showed a lot of heart and fight even if it wasn't enough, and there were some hot rallies in there despite the DF's.

Congrats to Dokic, I hope she keeps up her run... she's playing well and deserved the win tonight. Gratz to the Aussies :)

A great great match, best of the tournament so far :D:yeah:. A match that was meaning a lot to both girls. Shame for Anna that she had Dokic in her draw as I felt like Jelena was playing better than most top 20 girls. She did play well herself despite DFs.

What an exciting match it was! :drool:
Truly amazing performance by Jelena, all the moreso that she had to come back to win in 3 after a disappointment of failing to serve it out in the 2nd. She was painting the lines so beautifully, her shotmaking was almost flawless up until 64 41. I couldn't believe I was watching the same player last year in September in a challenger struggling to put a ball in the court for more than 3 shots. WELL DONE!!! :)

Honestly, I was waiting for a choke after she led in the second set and then lost the Tiebreak. She hasn't let those kind of losses bother her at all anymore which is good to see. I was willing her to win after I woke up to watch and have class early in the morning! :lol:

Dokic had a few points where she played nervously, but i was incredibly impressed with how well she continued to go for her shots. She played like the top 20 player, and Anna (thankfully) played nervously throughout and waiting for errors. Dokic made me tear up a bit and you could just see it on her face how emotional this all was for her. Dokic :worship:

Dokic's ground strokes are still top 5 in the game & at this rate if she were to play Ana I think she would get the win.

Really amazing match, not so much for the quality, but the context and the drama.

It's really great to see Jelena winning and genuinely happy after all that she's been through. And remember the last time she was on centre court, she got booed. I wish Anna hadn't lost it on 2 DF's though, I feel for her in that regard.

Fantastic! I always had a wee soft spot for Dokic, ever since she demolished Hingis in the first round at Wimbledon in '99.

What a story! So many people had written her off but you can't just write off talent like that! I know that, being a Mary Pierce fan!

Well done Jelena, now keep going and get bak on the tour, where you most definatley belong!

Made me a little teary eyed. Love the Dok!
I'm so impressed with her resolve.
No matter what happens, this tournament is a huge success for her.
Woz will be extremely tough to beat. It's within her capability though.
She'll have to start just like she did today, cracking the ball.

As for Chak, I'm really impressed with her groundstrokes. She looked a little better this tourney. Her serving was absolutely horrendous though. She'll need to get that back in line to stay in the top20.

Dokic actually played like a top 20 player tonight. It might be too bad for her that Woz is playing like a top 5 player. We'll have to see. Dokic with nothing to lose and Caro feeling some pressure might make for an interesting match.

Fantastic win, can't believe she finally pulled one off like that. The tension and nerves through out the stadium and the players was scary. So happy with her ground game as well. Her serve was really good at the start and her first and second serve were pretty much the same pace.

As for Anna, her serve was shit...her ground game was pretty good. Her defense was AMAZING and her fighting spirit was pretty good to see as well. I hope she can pick her game up and bring back 2007 Anna.

Of course, she's gonna play Wozniacki now, so this time I definitely have to root against her. It sucks that she's playing all my favs :sad:

I have to admit I never really thought Dokic could actually make a serious comeback, specially after that "no show" period she had some years ago. But I guess she's proved me wrong, and watching her play today reminded me of how enjoyable her tennis is. Congratulations to her and I hope she keeps going. She could be a threat, although it's noticeable she's not in top shape yet, although she seems to be on the way to reach it.

Fabulous!!!

I was getting really angry with Eurosport because I paid for their player only to see Rod Laver arena lose it's feed (or something). Found another feed when she was 4-1 up in the second only to watch her lose the set.

British Eurosport started showing the match from the third set though so all was not lost. After all that though I could barely watch as it got close towards the end!

Jan 21st, 2009, 11:27 AM
It was the absolute nerve/error fest i imagined it to be...... but i couldn't take my eyes off it. Fascinating drama i thought, you just had no idea how it would end.

I thought Dokic played a smart final set, and she came up with some inspired shots near the end. That forehand DTL at 4-2 i think it was, was outstanding.

Anna just didnt have any sort of consistency. She played some great points, but then she would just produce the most inexplicable errors. There was one forehand where she only just got a hit on the ball without it being an airshot. There was just no inner confidence it seemed for her to go for her shots at crucial times. Her serve was awful too, havent seen those kind of numbers since Sharapova in '07:tape::lol:

Well done Jelena though, she wanted it SO badly. Her reaction at the end was very endearing. So pleased for her as well that she got such substantial support from the crowd. It was half the battle won with them on her side.

SM
Jan 21st, 2009, 11:28 AM
The old Jelena who lost winning situations would simply try to hit the ball harder and harder and keep missing. Today she just seemed soo composed with Chakvetdaze, stuck to her game which is to hit hard but didnt try and blast it harder and harder to hit low percentage shots!

In her matches against Mauresmo (Gold Coast), Paszek, and tonight with Anna she is showing a greater maturity.

She's using those trade mark dropshots on her backhand side (she has great feel on her backhand IMO), but also throwing in more midpaced shots and loopy shots from time to time to try change the rhythm. She used alot of backhand slices and loopy shots against Chakvetadze which was nice to see.

I'm just in awe. I cannot believe she won, I'm so happy right now.
When she cried, and Borna cried, and she thanked the crowd I was crying aswell. :bigcry:
She played really well, it was a great match. I'd say the best of the ones I've seen so far of the tournament. Not so much for the quality, which was still relatively good except for when things got tense and nerves took over + DF's, but good for the drama and just the significance of the match for Jelena.

I couldn't imagine how she's feeling right now, she truly deserves this.
Well done, Jelena. SHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Thank god Jelena thought what i thought that Anna loves serving down the line in the 2nd court. When she went wide on the 3rd match point i was relieved it was a fault. Quality of the tennis wasn't that great but the drama was the best and kept me watching it. Congratz Jelena now she plays Wozniacki and i don't care who wins but it will be a good test

I just wish she stopped hitting ALL her forehands crosscourts - chakvetadze was able to predict that shot quite often. A few more shots down the line would help keep her opponents off-guard.

But i definitely agree she no longer just blasts away at the lines for winners. Is much more patient out there which is good to see.

As I said I have seen little of Chaky...but her sportmanship (well lack of)...would never pay to see her in a match...it was quite disgracefull actually...even Tracy Austin in commentary was talking about her illegal coaching (in the best words a commentator can...Todd Woodbridge said the same thing)....If I was Wozniaki...I'd be a bit scared...Jelena hit her off the court for most of the match...then Chaky went gamesmanship....Jelena played it back at her in the third...good on her...still shit but showing she won't be intimidated.;) Jelena is back...as a 32 yr old I can say that...have not seen Dokic hit like that consistantly for a long time...was always going to be a difficult match for her.

I hope she does well against Caro who I also like a lot. I'd love for either of them to reach the final on this side of the draw....or Dina. But keep on going strong Jelena cuz we all have your back!

even though chaky isn't technically chaky anymore, this is still a huge win for jelena. with her story not picking up a raquet for 7 months then she came in last year obviously over weight but still fighting and now to see her like this, it really is inspirational. my favorite moment was when she buried her head in the towel and almost started crying, you could tell how much it meant to her to play well and just be back on court, truly amazing.

SHOO!!!:hearts:

The quality, sans the doublefaults, was of decent quality actually. Some fun rallies, extreme tense moments and the drama was high as well!:drool:

Except for a few rough serving patches, Dokic's serve was really good today. She really needs to start hitting some forehand DTL shots as Chakvetadze was camping on the cc side waiting for them. Had her forehand not went lazy in the 2nd set, it would have been a much easier 6-4, 6-2 win, but oh well she still won.

Every match for Jelena is emotional in so many different ways so it's amazing to see her reaction after each of these wins.:hug:

Really don't think she can do it vs Caro, but she will definitely give it her all. Just please no night match, I can't wake up at 3:30 am again and go into work as a zombie with 3 hrs of sleep.:help:

Stunning performance from Jelena. I can't think of anyone who deserves this more than her, and I'm so proud to be her fan. She really remained calm and steady through the toughest parts of the match and didn't give up on a single ball. She moved pretty well, and struck the ball with confidence and consistency just like the old Jelena. If she can keep her head in tennis and stay happy off the court, I think this might be the "real" comeback. Her level at the moment is at least top 30 IMO, and I never remembered her serve being quite the weapon it is now (minus the double faults :o). She's awesome. Period. :hearts:

By the way, she's entered in the Mixed Doubles with Paul Hanley. :) Great to see!

Recorded this because I was at work when it was on. Eurosport only deigned to show the final set. Better than BBC who decided not to show the night session at all. :( Seemed to be an entertaining match.

It's a bittersweet one for me. Dokic (along with Hingis) was the reason why I originally became of fan of women's tennis. So when I saw this draw I was not at all pleased.

But I'm so happy that Jelena has now emerged from this incredibly difficult period of her life on a big stage like this. :D Must be very cathartic. Just unfortunate for me that it had to be against my current fave. Now go on Jelena and beat Caro! :yeah:

Anna :sad: :hug: I wish she'd worked more on her serve in the off-season because it's still her Achilles heel. I am hoping that slowly but surely she is regaining her match confidence.

Ughhh..it should have been 2 sets....but Anna played bitch...almost crying etc etc....shit tactics and I now dislike her...she held up the play deliberately...playing the victim against another victim...it was absolutely evident....go jelena :-):(

As I said I have seen little of Chaky...but her sportmanship (well lack of)...would never pay to see her in a match...it was quite disgracefull actually...even Tracy Austin in commentary was talking about her illegal coaching (in the best words a commentator can...Todd Woodbridge said the same thing)....If I was Wozniaki...I'd be a bit scared...Jelena hit her off the court for most of the match...then Chaky went gamesmanship....Jelena played it back at her in the third...good on her...still shit but showing she won't be intimidated.;) Jelena is back...as a 32 yr old I can say that...have not seen Dokic hit like that consistantly for a long time...was always going to be a difficult match for her.

To what are you referring here? What do you think Anna did in this match that was so bad? What illegal coaching was there beyond the normal looking back and forth to family/coach that almost every player on tour does? If you detest Anna for that, then you surely must dislike at least half the tour. Anna is nowhere near the worst for this, she pretty much never even uses on court coaching when it is allowed, so this makes minimal sense. You also seem to be accusing Anna of holding up the play and some sort of gamesmanship because she was nearly crying? Anna plays faster than 90% of players on tour, admittedly Dokic is possibly even quicker between serves, but there's no case I can see for suggesting that Anna holds up play to any particular degree. As for the almost crying... do you think this is some sort of tactic or gamesmanship? Why would she choose to be a mental wreck in crunch situations? Anna has always struggled with her emotions on court, and it really is not some sort of tactic - in fact, it frequently causes big problems for her performance in a match. The only other thing I can thing of that she did was challenge quite a few balls that ended up being out... is that what you mean by delaying tactics? Unsure...

If you don't like Anna, that's fine - but I don't understand these accusations of gamesmanship, since Anna is really not a big user of any of the usual delaying tactics and injury breaks that are rife on tour. Her demeanour is a bit prickly and she does shout a bit when she's tight and allows crowds cheering errors to wind her up, but I really don't think she's any more unsporting than other players. Maybe she's not a smiling ball of friendliness, but that doesn't make her some sort of cheat.

She had many balls that were sitting up that Jelena had to put away, and she did 90% of the time, and I was shitting myself each time because I know Jelena from two years ago would have blasted it long.

And yes everyone, her serve has really become a weapon now, just need to work on the DFs.

It was so fun being there, jumping up and down and yelling stuff in support, I was over the moon when she won the first set and just went crazy when she won the match. People around me were looking at me funny. :o

To the Chakvetadze fans, I don't really think she played that bad. She certainly played better than what I was at the Open last year. She will be back.

Nice work from Channel 7 too, they really built the emotions leadng into the match, showing her R1 Press Conference and that match in 2001 against Davenport when the crowd booed her. I was at the match and pleased to say that I still went for her and didn't boo ;)

Such a great win for Jelena, so so happy for her and the crowd was such a big help too.

Had to post this in here. I actually teared up after rewatching the interview... when she thanks the crowd for their support, you could really tell how much it meant to her. Really touching. I love her. :hearts:

My favourite result of this year without any doubt! I was so happy when Chakvetadze made that double fault.

It was so great to see Jelena that happy after winning.

Congratulations Elena!

I've seen the press conference after her first round match on youtube where Elena got so emotional. I really feel for her! Hope she will have a great comeback 2009!!!

It's sad that the match ended with two double-faults from Chakvetadze. It would have been great to see Elena celebrating after closing out the match with great backhand winner! ;-)
