Yeesss. I love you Jarka.

I thought it was all going to fall apart there a few times, but she kept it together even when the UEs came.

She's crying in her interview. So happy for her :hug:

Wow what a terrific win. She was holding back the tears after winning and so was I. Keep this up Jarka!

oh yeah i guess

As opposed to just about every previous match in 2012, she was smashing everything in.

She had a solid top 30 level going there, made Vinci look clueless for the last two sets.

Good win for Jarka!

Played some very good Tennis. served very well and at times set points up.

I don't mind her going for her shots for that is her game.

Was good at the net.

Great to see Jarka winning, after such a tough year that ended with her mother passing away. I hope she has a much better 2013! :hug:

Will likely be the best match point of the Australian hard court season, if not of the WTA 2013 season.

Even if you're not a fan of Jarka, you just can't help but be happy for her. She had such a tough year last year. Nothing was going her way. I know this is only 1 win, but this could really be a step in the right direction for her.

Absolutely :yeah:

I'm certainly not a fan but I'm glad she has a good start. Perhaps this will help to forget about a gloomy 2012.

I was rooting for Vinci though. Her game is so beautiful. A shame I missed it apart from the last games. However, Christmas time brings its own priorities :aparty:

Is it just me or do you guys also think he was hitting with more topspin on her groundies and was in general not ball bashing as much???

SilverPersian

Yep, I think she's definitely working the topspin more, particularly when she gets a low short ball. It meant that she had more consistency and less soul-destroying UEs.

Yeh, I thought her shots weren't going as flat as they used to be. She also stuck in the rally at times. Loved those return winners :drool:

I don't know about the topspin, but she wasn't "ballbashing" (for once). She was building her points in a nice way, choosing the best choice of play available. At least at the end of the match, since I didn't see most of the 3 sets.

Bad start of the season, she usually beats those players thanks to her craftiness and variety, quite embarrassing performance for her- she's still rusty i guess.

You actually think that :facepalm:
She just isn't good noug to beat players who consistently hit the ball hard and make her move :lol:

Can someone make highlights of this match? I want to watch that second and third set over and over.

So proud of Jarka.

This :bowdown: :worship:
She exchanged whatever control she had in her Wilson for extra power in the Babolat that not only did she not need but meant age couldn't make a ball :lol:
If Maria is off and Jarka is on, I think he is finally in the state of mind to finish off the match he almost did at US Open 2010 :)

Jarmila :hearts::) This is just great, I'm so happy! This must mean so much to her! Really hope that things are going upwards from here. Looking forward to 2R vs. Sharapova :)

Too bad they had to play each other in 1R as I like Vinci as well, but Jarmila really needed this one much more.

It was always on Jarmila's racket no matter what their respective rankings are. Well done to her :yeah:.

I made the mistake to think that Roby had it already in her pocket. Now I'm quite shocked and disappointed. That should have never happened, Roberta. Do well in the doubles at least.

Welcome back Jarmila.

On a given day Gajdosova is much better than Vinci. Granted that she sucks when she isn't inspired though :lol:

Good result for her of course, but it is only one match and that means very little. She started 2012 with a win too, afterall.
