Good result for Jelena. :) She was playing horribly in the first set, but she fought through that and got herself into a better rhythm. Hope she can continue to do that, so that she can step it up to WTA level soon.

Only Dokic would get this many threads for a 1r win at a Challengers event.:lol::lol:

Nicely done after that abomination of a 1st set. Hopefully she can string a couple of nice results together and start moving back up the rankings!:drive:

Her recovery from that first set was impressive even started hitting drive volleys towards the end shows how much her confidence grew as the match went on. All in all very important win. Martic in the second round will be a tougher apponent though.

First match win since Sprem at the French.

Short match analysis from my part:

Jelena played a terrible 1st set. I think I'm not exaggerating if I say that I haven't seen a worse Jelena post-AO 2009. Errors, DFs, slow movement... Pretty much anything Jurak could ask for. Jelena tanked the set from 1-3 hoping to regain ground in the 2nd.

She picked up her game in the 2nd set and tried to play more reasonable tennis. She stopped making horrific errors (she was only making plain errors :p ) and managed to break, so she won the set 6-4.

In the third set she really raised her game. Smart and accurate shots, not with extreme power just well placed. She cut down on her errors too (although some of them were really annoying - you know, the Jelena-like errors). A nice highlight is the game that she breaks with Jurak staying at 0. She managed to serve the last game out and GSM.

A few interesting points:
1. Jelena was horrible in the 1st, and pretty solid in the 3rd set. Which proves that if Jelena has enough matchplay she'll do wonders. Imagine her playing a week-in week-out full schedule for some time. Oh boy...!
2. Jelena in the 3rd really didn't do anything special to win the match. She just played good, solid tennis with not many errors. Recipe to success. ;)
3. Last but (certainly) not least... Jurak. If somebody ever asks for the definition of a pusher followed by a good example, give them Jurak. Moonball, after moonball desperately trying to just defend... Horribly annoying. She made Wozniacki look like a brainless ballbasher (as one of the Dokic fans said on Dokic's sub-forum). From this perspective I am really happy about Jelena's win. More happy than if Jelena had just beaten a high seed that is a ballbasher (cause that type of opponent really suits her more)

All in all, nice win Jelena. Keep playing and practicing and the rest will come on their own. ;)
