She definitely has the physical skills to win in the WTA. Just needs to learn to finish and stay cool under pressure. Those unforced errors were frustrating to watch, even after she recovered from 1 or 2 questionable calls.

Gutted for Jarka :hug: as she should have won this match.

Her serve was awesome in the first set and it was a shame she had a nervy tie break.

Came out and dominated the second with Nastya looking increasingly demoralised.

Nastya regrouped with the time out but Jarka soon regained her rhythm and would have won if she hadn't dropped a forehand smash into the net at 5*-4, after which the disappointment seemed to make her lose concentration.

Jarka is playing like a top 30 player - hope she can sustain this momentum. :hearts:

So Jarka pulled out of Copenhagen it seems. From her site:

Bone bruise keeps Jarka out of Copenhagen
Monday, 02 August 2010 10:58

A bruised bone on the heel of her right foot has caused Jarka to withdraw from the e-boks Sony Ericsson Open in Copenhagen this week. The injury was suffered while Jarka played for Kansas City in WTT, but worsened over the course of last week's Istanbul Cup to the point where a break is now necessary.

Jarka will rest up this week before returning to practice in time for her return to the WTA Tour at the Rogers Cup in Montreal.

Hi I am again on court 9 second match after 11 against alona bondarenko. Well played on court 9 all matches so far so maybe is lucky :)

Bondarenko doesn't seem to be in good form at all lately, so that IS lucky! :)

Possible other opponents:

R3 Azarenka

Qualifying should take Jarka to #2 Aussie and around #61 on world rankings. A R1 win should get her to about #57 which equals her areer High! Yay!!

Iknow I am biased being Jarkas mother in law but I think she has a real shot at beating Sharapova. She beat her 5 0 in the recent wtt which I realise is a not a grand slam but should give Jarka lots of confidence, especially given her recent grand slam peformances.:wavey:

Welcome :)

Jarka certainly has great form behind her in the last couple of months, she's in with a real shot. I still think Maria's serve is a bit suspect, if Jarka serves well I think the pressure will build on the Russian.

We will all be rooting for Jarmilla in Australia! :)

If she loses, the loses to a former US Open champion. Nothing to be ashamed of. The way Jarka has been playing lately, beating Sharapova will not be impossible and it's better to face her in the 1st round than in latter rounds.

Do your best Jarmila :)!!!!!

Excited for this match, after her last performance against Venus at Wimbledon, I think Jarka should have some confidence going in to a match like this. Will be up and watching :) Look forward to hopefully a good match.

A good performance here against Sharapova on Arthur Ash Court at the US Open could really get people noticing her.

I was expecting this match to start at like 5, so I would miss it, but this is a good time :)

Goodish start, some nice winners...but seems a bit nervous. Serving well.

If she keeps the errors down, she is certainly in with a chance.

Aug 31st, 2010, 10:06 PM

Keep it this simple and the match is in the bag. Still waiting for Maria to get into the match though...

Disappointed for Jarka she gets so down on herself and rushes through the match. She just hates to disappoint her fans and those close to her. Hopefully she can win a match in the dubs which starts tomorow.

Pebbles
Sep 1st, 2010, 12:18 AM
I think she was trying to be too aggressive tonight, going for the first strike too often and didn't have the patience to rally with Maria. Either way, it was a tough draw but Jarka did very well in the 1st set and hit some great winners throughout the match, just too many errors. Good luck in doubles! :)

I hear she played some nice tennis, my dad says she would have beaten most of the players in the draw today. She has definitely been playing some good tennis this year, I'm expecting good things from her over the second part of this year and next year.

Huntress55
Sep 1st, 2010, 06:42 AM
First set was really good from Jarka. She was very determined. As soon as she was broken second set though, things started to fall apart from her. She was rushing points and she was just so down on herself. She really needs to work on the mental attitude, because Maria, despite being down a set still acted confident, kept her body language up and didnt panic.

I have no doubt that Jarka can compete with the best players, its just wether she believes she can. I swear at one point when she looked up at her box (3rd set I think) she said "I can't do it/this", and its a little frustrating because we all know she really can.

Honestly if she could get one great win like this it could change her mindset, or at least help her believe more. She has like nothing to defend the rest of the year so she should work on getting her ranking as high as she can.

Hopefully she'll be winning matches like this soon. Shes got too much talent not to make a splash on the tour. So she just has to keep working hard and start believing, or even when she doesnt in a match, learn to slow things down and not show it so much.

Anyways good effort Jarka:hug:, especially first set. Sucks she had to draw Maria, because I also believe she would have got through against a lesser player.

It's never easy to maintain the same level during the whole match especially against Maria who's such a fighter and never gives up.
