Jankovic looked better to me than her AO loss to Caro.
She fell apart game 2 of set 3, but she showed she can still move and hit her groundies. She should take positives out of this.
Aga continues a very consistent year where she only loses to Vika

Well if we wanted to give Radwanska credit, which we don´t, you could argue she has been the 2nd best player this year. I bet Radwanska prays for Görges. Not that she can´t beat Wozniacki, but that would take three hours, Görges would take 30 minutes. :tape::help:

Jankovic = finished.
I don't actually think this was all a choke tbh. She simply isn't technically capable of sustaining the level of aggressive tennis she put on in the second set for a whole match - her technique/timing doesn't allow for it, there's only ever going to be a very limited time before the errors start flowing. And her movement has deteriorated too much for her to return to her old conservative game based on her defence.

Now watch Jankovic feel sorry for herself for the next 3 weeks and lose her first match in Kuala Lumpur and Indian Wells.

Oh please a five year old could have finished the points at 0-1, 40-0 and 40-30. That turned the match and JJ fell apart mentally. Every time she steps toward the net, she loses her focus. She chalks up matches, sets and points before they are over. It´s a career long weakness and one of the main reasons she never won a Grand Slam.

The Srbija sisters are really useless against pushers. For all the praise it gets, Jankovic's BH hardly lives up to it. Technically it's not all that either, she constantly loses balance and falls sideways when hitting the shot.

Did Radwanska hit a single winner in that final set? I don't recall one. Agatha bagelling her opponent while not managing to hit a single winner. It must be snowing in hell, I doubt if pushing gets more extreme than this.

Fluffwanska was disgusting. She was pushing all through out and got completely outplayed when Jankovic found a semblance of form in the second set. Jankovic has a lot more in common with Hingis than her, with her control of the rallies through an early ball taking and good shot selection, and her far superior ball striking.

Aga is a masterful tactician. In the 1st game of the second set they had that really long rally which she couldn't recover from (Aga ran only 10m more than Jelena, but had to chase much faster balls). Once the score moved to 1-3 she decided to tank the set, didn't bother chasing the balls and let Jankovic be the master of the situation. After the set was over she took a tactical bathroom break to get a couple more minutes to recover and was fresh again. As soon as Aga's defense improved dramatically, Jelena's game completely collapsed because she can't outhit, outpush or outsmart Aga at her normal level as the first and third set clearly showed.

Even before that it was becoming clear that Jankovic's level was dropping - in the first game of the third set, she made about 3 unforced errors and handed over the game to love. The errors were always going to come sooner or later, they ALWAYS do when she tries playing super-aggressively because she doesn't have the ability to play it for long. The same would probably be true of Wozniacki if she ever tried to transform into a ballbasher.

I sort of see your point, I did not communicate clearly. I guess I was talking about stepping up when your opponent does. You can't go from 6:2 to 2:6 to 6:0. It would be okay for her to lose second set 4:6. It happens, but it shouldn't as often as is it happens to Aga. Everything is relative to your opponent.

you are right. She was brainless when she hit those 2 shots that cost her the 2nd game.
The disappointment of that 2nd game affected her completely. That game was on her mind until the end of the match. Basically she couldn't play, or focus. It has nothing to do with a choke etc ... just a huge disappointment with herself that's all - and she just couldn't shake it off. That's her .. and that's why she hasn't won any of the slams.

Other than that she is technically playing very well. I think she'll continue to be a thorn whoever plays her. Finally it was also good to see her go deep into a tournament - will do her a lot of good.

Oh Jelena :oh: new taste for being bagelled by lesser pushers :o

Although I quite like Radwanska, Jelena is my favourite, yet I'm glad she lost. It would have been awful to see her lose to Caroline again.

Also if Julia gets through, (hoping she does) it would be torture seeing two favourites battle it out when they both need a title.

I know Radwanska fans will harp on about how much better a player she is than Jelena now, but I'm not convinced :shrug: 0 winners in a bagel set? :rolleyes: now now. Also the only difference I can see is Radwanska is far superior at the net and more consistent. I still think Jelena is the better mover, and look how she wiped the floor with her in set 2. Also in all the years on tour Radwanska has yet to evolve her game to cope with big-hitters when they're on, at least Jelena has many good wins against such players.

Good tournament for Jelena really, never expected her to get past Sam :tape:

you are wrong. she lost that game easily, because the momentum of the match was broken becayse aga went for a long break after 2nd set. jankovic was too cold for the restart ... call it that she was ambushed. Wouldn't have mattered had she got that 2nd game.

I don't think she hit a single out-right winner in that final set. Maybe two at a stretch.

Jankovic's post 2008 form has been littered with these kind of fluctuations and utter losses in form, but never on quite a pathetic scale as this, barely even winning points against a player doing the absolute bare minimum. Startling really, considering that the second set was Jankovic's most alert and committed tennis in nearly 4 years. Using angles proactively and yanking Radwanska out of position and then taking on drive-volleys with lovely measure aggression, as well as countering Radwanska's 'cat and mouse' drop-shot-lob-junk tactics.

She just seems totally incapable of sustaining any kind of high level, which was the hallmark of Peak-Jankovic. Now she's involved in battles of attrition in which she becomes distinctly second-best. A shame.

let's get one thing straight. jelena is not doing poorly because she's getting "old". It's simply because emotionally she is fragile and always was fragile. No more no less. Couple of bad points affect her, and her game can go to pieces, as we saw today. However even after this match, I think she's moving upward. This will just make her stronger.

let's not lie to ourselves, Aga did not play well today.

She lacked precision and court craft that usually gives her those opportunities to finish points. Aga was deep behind the baseline as JJ kept on winning the real estate battle. When Aga tried to approach the net is was usually following weak shots which only gave Jelena an opportunity to counterattack. Luckily, Aga served well in the third set.

Unfortunately for JJ, she played dreadful tennis when it mattered....having some loose screws in your head is a part of tennis too.

Aga is not playing well this season period. I only hope it will change soon before the results will start reflecting it.

Nothing will change until after the US HC season. The girl needs rest period, she's by far the most active player this year, but she's splaying tournaments week in week out.

Agnieszka doesn't need to play great or even "well". All she needs is to keep her average level which many players just don't - most of them are sinusoids and Agnieszka's consistence is simply too much for them.
Good luck in the final!

Yes and no...and that depends on what we expect from her. Yes, she can always relay on her opponents beating themselves (like JJ did today). On the other hand, Aga is capable of playing much better. She really needs to go home, get rest and work on her game.

Do not go to Malaysia next week, please Aga!!

Don't kid yourself :lol: Aga won 19/20 points at one time (4,5-0?) and that one was Jelena's winner. Afterwards Jelena was hitting DFs, UEs and a few winners. I don't remember a single winner from Radwanska.

I think you, and others who say similar things, are very much mistaken. Aga is playing pretty well, actually. She won all her matches she was theoretically capable of winning, which very often wasn't the case last year. And results against the likes of Petra, Serena, Caro, Sharapova or Azarenka reflect her fundamental shortcomings and not the current form she's in. And don't forget there are several other players, perfectly capable of beating Aga on occasion, regardless of her form.

So yeah, I believe Aga is doing very well. :)

What an effort from Radwanska! Despite very apparent and extremely heavy injury of both of her ankles, she managed to win unbelievably tough match, crushing the mighty opposition of inspired former WTA No 1 ranked player!!! :drink:


Irony at its best.

Jelena is brainless idiot.
How can anyone be bagelled by powerless, boring pusher?

JJ can be unbelievably atrocious at times :(

the only good thing to take from this match is the 2nd set display from her. If only she could maintain that form :sad:

Sounds like there is more positives to take form this set than negitives for Jelena. Surely her coach will remind her of the sublime second set she played. NOw we just have to replicate it. We haven't seen that tennis from Jelena in 2 years. IDC if she got bageled after that. It's promising to see that kind of tennis from her again. Now we just need a bit more consistencey.

Good win, Aga! :)

Jelena :hug:

Aga was too consistent for Jelena in the 1st set.
Then in 2nd set Jelena played Top 5-tennis, many high-quality points :worship:
In 3rd set the 2nd game was the key. Jelena had 40-0 and gave it away with 2 DFs :help:
