How many times in the match is she going to get broken? Maybe we can have a bet instead of getting too worried. Can't you for once follow Ana's steps, JJ, and finish it off quickly instead of 3-set 12-10 in third kind of stories in the very 1st round?

Q. Looking to your next match, you either have pretty highly ranked seed or Niculescu, who beat you at Wimbledon.

KATIE O'BRIEN: I'm just looking forward to it, whoever it is. Probably will be Jankovic. It's something I really look forward to. Niculescu, I've have problems with her in the past. I'm actually hoping it's Jankovic.

What time will the JJ match be tomorrow?

Matches start at 11 am local time which is Midnight GMT. Women's matches last 1.5h on average, men's 2h. Break between matches is around 10min. That's 2x1.5+2+0.5=5.5, meaning 5.30-6.00 am GMT. Could be an hour or so later depending on previous matches, though.

What time will the JJ match be tomorrow?

I don't know. It's after two women's and one men's matches which start at 01.00 am CET (00.00 British time?), so I don't think it can start before 06.00 am CET.

EDIT: ^:lol: We're such math wizards, BFF Alexis. :lol: Although I added one more hour because they're all choking idiots. :p

(Actually I just read Katie's interview and she seems pretty confident but nice too so I take this back but still she should show more respect to an ex.number 1. The English girls seem to be on their way up. Just a pity I do not like any of them much.)

:) Glad to come home and see JJ's 1st round taped...

:o I didn't realize that she's totally changed her service motion...I hope she knows what she's doing.. i wouldn't want to change my service motion before a slam.. her ball toss is higher, she's trying to get more knee action, and more spin on it...it's like she hasn't synchronized her service motion fully yet....:mad: and when she starts pushing, her FH is loopy and she starts moving back after volleying.. i'm glad she stepped it up in set 2.. hitting her FH with more authority.

The draw has opened up for her, so take advantage of it JJ.. i can see her scrapping her way to the SF like in 2008, but i'm worried a Belgian will rip her apart...:sad:

дalex
Jan 19th, 2010, 04:42 PM
I've noticed the new service motion, but it hasn't clicked for her yet. I guess she wants more power, but I don't see it happening as this new motion is all about the timing. It's like she's going for a natural move that allows no improvisation on her part.

Also, I don't really see the need for changes. Last year, the few times when she was playing well - I thought her serve was great. It looked faster and the 2nd serve was more risky as well. Maybe she wants more consistency? We'll see how this new serve will look against better players, but the fact she's been broken so many times against Szavay and Niculescu isn't exactly promising. Then again, maybe it's only a matter of time...

I liked her fh yesterday. It looks more like an offensive shot, but there will always be few loopy ones. Her bh wasn't exactly working yesterday. It wasn't bad, but I expect more free points off it.

Overall, JJ was solid, and if she could improve her form with each round, this AO doesn't have to end up as a total fiasco.

ms_nut
Jan 19th, 2010, 04:58 PM
^^ I agree with your thoughts about her previous service action, it seemed to have more pop on it..esp the 1st serve..

Her FH DTL is pretty offensive, but she doesn't get any leverage in a point with her loopy CC...In the fall of 2008, she was hitting it with great authority..:hearts:, that's her only hope to beating a Belgian.. but maybe i'm thinking too far ahead...

дalex
Jan 19th, 2010, 05:06 PM
Actually, I was talking about her FH CC. It looked sharp to me at times. :sobbing:
BUT, sometimes even if it's sharp/fast it's still landing way too short, so it doesn't really do much damage. But there were some very good ones and quite a few slow and loopy ones that we all hate with passion. :sobbing:

Never had complaints about her FH DTL (I think it's a weapon due to precision and consistency).

Jan 19th, 2010, 05:15 PM
^^^^
:p Ok, her FH wasn't too bad in set 2..CC and DTL..

The loopy FH is "good" because it's a high % shot and can be offensive when hit deep and with angle, something she tends to generate mostly from the center of the court...Her short FH CC can be effective if she goes over the ball more with more racquet head speed, instead of taking all the pace off of it.

:angel: Also, i'm probably being too critical of her, because just like the beginning of every GS, i'm hoping that she'll finally win one "this time".

Seems like she wasn't all that impressive despite the scoreline from your accounts? I hope she picks it up after getting few matches under her belt, she wasn't particularly good when lacking matchplay even in her heyday

she starts moving back after volleying

I'll never understand this. Nobody else, no matter how uncomfortable they feel up at the net, does it. Ricardo should take away her hairspray for a day or something whenever she does that in a match. Maybe that would teach her.

Maybe that would teach her.Some of her volleys and net play were just embarrassing. She really seems lost anywhere near the net so ends up taking the volley to far back and too low. However, apart from the first two games and the last game which she tried her best to lose she played OK but she was helped by Monica who blew up in the second set. Once she sharpens her game she will be fine.
