JJ :rocker2: Flashes of late 2008 Jelena in that match for periods of time. Hopefully this win gives her some confidence in her game.

The tennis Jelena played after 4-6 1-4 was some of the best tennis I have seen her play for a long time. Keep it up bb! :yeah:

Amazing comeback; can she play like this the rest of the year?

They should let Jelena play all the singles ties by herself.

Feb 6th, 2010, 06:16 PM
Ajde! Jelena was amazing for the last 11 games, just frustrated Kleybanova over and over and didn't let her get back into the match. Though most of the turnaround was because of Jelena raising her game, Kleybanova should work on her fitness, she was getting very tired by the end of the match.

Very entertaining match. Jankovic played some inspired stuff the last two sets and found a serious weakness in Kleybanova when Kleybanova was forced to run to her backhand side. Although it was 11 games in a row until the last couple they were almost all very tight. But in the end Jankovic not only won the match but she totally broke Kleybanova's spirit too and quite possibly saved the tie. Right now I actually think Serbia can win this thing.

JJ really needed this win for her confidence :yeah: nice comeback by her-down 4-6 1-4 most of us probably assumed she was finished. Instead, she held on and won 11 straight games :lol: She did play a bit more aggressively, especially on the forehand.

Kleybanova on the other hand just collapsed :tape: She has proven she's not ready to consistently win the big matches. We've seen this before against Henin, against Sharapova and others. Sure she can tag a big name every now and then, but Alisa does better when she comes from behind :lol:

and :rolls: at the music :p Green Day, Gwen Stefani etc :lol: :p

That's the spirit and attitude I want to see....fight for every point and go for your shots...that's the way. Hard battle and she grinded Alisa down finally. Nothing was for free in that match, because Alisa was a real tough cookie. Really important match not only for Serbia...because also very important for Jelena's confidence. Love it.:worship::kiss::worship:

GO JJ:bounce:

I have no idea where you found the inspiration from because your serving was pathetic to begin with, but played with shades of Jelena circa 2008 at times. Please keep this up!

And Alisa did not choke, Jelena raised her game to her normal level and Alisa couldn't keep up. She might have gotten a little frustrated near the end but that was because she was losing. Otherwise, Jelena played those 11 games as I haven't seen her play in a long time. :eek: No silly UEs, even some good serving. I'm shocked.

just a great match from jelena, I hope she is finally finding her game from the late 2008 as she was just too stable, and "in the zone", just playing her old quality game, very patient, and smart. even the serve got a lot better from the turning point in the second set. the crowd was pretty shocked after she was down 4:6, 1:4, but jelena just found her way into the match and started playing to Kleybanova's weakness'. i hope ana will be able to beat kleybanova too, as alis is not very fit. i'm sure it will be an error fest tomorrow...

can't wait for a jj-sveta match tomorrow, now that should be fun. if jj wins, then i guess she is really back!

As a fan, I've been waiting a long time to actually enjoy watching Jelena play a match. Her passive form of the last year plus has been brutal to witness. And from 4-6, 1-4 down, she put a smile on my face. Wonderful stuff. :worship: Hopefully she'll take this aggressive form into the next match.
