Estoril QF vs Niculescu

She came back from 0-4* in the 1st set to win it 7-5.

She saved 2(3?) SPs and then closed it at her 3rd SP (with a FH winner; lost the 2nd SP with a missing ace)

JoseMorgado is there and said that if she won the 1st set the 2nd would be a 6-0...

Stephens and Barrois are in the audience cheering for Jarka... C'mon girl!!!!!

Huntress55
Apr 28th, 2011, 02:25 PM
Good stuff by Jarka to pull that first set out despite trailing 04! Hopefully she can have an easier second set :)

Filipinos

1-0 easily and then 4 errors to give Monica the 1-1.

Madrid draw is out!

Jarka's section:

[10]Radwanska vs Shvedova
Kirilenko vs Gajdosova
[WC]Medina Garrigues vs Safarova
[WC]Pous Tio vs [7]Jankovic

Tough draw. I think she can defeat Kiri but then Aga is playing quite well lately.

Huntress55
Apr 29th, 2011, 01:57 PM
It is tough, one match at a time though. It'd be nice if she could win a couple here, like you said a win against Kiri I think is possible, Aga would be tough but who knows.

Just made a seperate one mainly for results, schedule and stuff, so dont have to go through pages and pages. Any thread for cheering is all good.

As for her match against Aga, it really depends how she plays her first match, what kind of form she takes in.

A.Radwanska vs Bye
Vesnina vs Q

Brianti vs Q
Arn vs Kuznetsova

Pennetta vs Mattek-Sands
Dentoni vs Gajdosova

Zahlavova-Strycova vs Dominiguez Lino
Na Li vs Bye

You would think Jarka would win her first round, then i give her a good chance if she playes Pennetta second she is coming back from injury so hope Jarka can go deep.

Huntress55
May 8th, 2011, 01:53 AM
Yeah I think Jarka can win her first round, and then hopefully she's playing well and can beat Flavia if thats who she faces, if not she beat Bethanie to get the hobart title so that'll give her confidence. GL Jarka :D

Jarka def. Dentoni 6-1 6-2 without facing any BP. :)

I really REALLY like this draw... Dentoni was pretty easy. Then or Pennetta (that I saw training in Madrid friday and wasn't impressed at all) or Mattek (who she already defeated). So huge chances to get through to the 3rd round. And then probably Na Li who is not in her top form and Jarka clearly has a shot if she face her.

Huntress55

Good stuff Jarka, was way too tired to stay up and follow the match :(

Territory
May 10th, 2011, 08:14 PM
Jarka was put in the doubles at the last minute - she and Alexandra Dulgheru were a late replacement for Errani/Vinci and then went on to have a good R1 win! They beat Chuang/Govortsova 7-5 6-2. Her doubles rank should lift to about #78.

Gee it's pleasing to see that her break-up with Sam isn't affecting to her adversely. TBH, when I saw the way he spoke to her at Brisbane, I thought 'hang on, why is the world #300-and-something and nothing-very-special men's player talking down so badly to a top 40 woman player?'. Her career is obviously taking off and he didn't strike me as the type who would support her and build her confidence further. (I admit, I'm providing these stunning insights based on over-hearding two 90sec conversations :lol:)

Terrible match. She gave it away, and she couldn't get her head in the right place to fight until it was too late. One pretty decent return game at 1-3 in the second, she made some lovely returns there, but after she failed to break she was gone.

jack21
May 12th, 2011, 01:42 PM
Terrible match today, seems to be a trend that she has a few good wins then falls appart next round.

Kinda off topic but has anyone seen that recent ad that Jarka did for Wilson? Strange timing that they would shoot it pretty much the same time as she broke up with Sam but maybe that was the point. Doesn't look like she is taking the divorce too hard :lol:
