MARY leads H2H 1-0
USO 2005 3R - PIERCE D. JANKOVIC 63 30 ret


Jelena is the fave based on recent form but maybe she is still injured and jet-lagged after coming from Guangzhou :devil:

even though Mary lost to Alona last week, she lost to the eventual champ so nothing to be ashamed of. GO MARY

Yeah, I can see that :lol:

Didn't Jankovic withdraw this week in China? If fit, then she'll win, otherwise it's Mary's for the taking...

Mary most likely if Jelena is injured.

Just Do It
Oct 1st, 2006, 06:20 PM
Jelena is injured, but i still think she will win in 3 !

Oct 1st, 2006, 06:23 PM
If she was really injured she wouldn't travel and play.
C'mon Mary !

Oct 1st, 2006, 06:26 PM
Normally I wud say Mary, but on current form u have to go with Jelenea.
Good Luck Mary!

If Jelena doesn"t have problems with her injury that should be a quick match

Oct 1st, 2006, 06:31 PM
If Jelena doesn"t have problems with her injury that should be a quick matchditto. but Im surprised she didn't withdraw :o I hope it doesn't bite her in her a$$ :o

Oct 1st, 2006, 06:32 PM

To be honest, since pierce has come back she hasnt looked in great shape, which is a shame since she was so trim and injury-free last year. I think the lack of training due to her foot injury have really undone all the good work from last year :(

However, with Jankovic's recent withdrawal, you have to say jelena is not the overwhelming favourite she would be if we saw this draw a week ago. Stil i think a fit Jelena should be too much for Pierce. Jelena can soak up Mary's weight of shot and then dish out winners of her own, because mary hasnt got the foot-speed really to contend with the winners that Jelena will produce.

I would say Jelena, maybe in 3 taking into account the withdrawal :)

Mary needs time in the gym to get back 'The Force' in time for Aus. :boxing:

I think Jelena will take this one in three, but Pierce will bitch it out all the way. :bounce:

Oct 1st, 2006, 08:49 PM
I'm gonna say Jankovic 6-3, 6-1.

Oct 1st, 2006, 08:51 PM
Jelena will win if she's healthy :)

Oct 1st, 2006, 10:01 PM

Oct 2nd, 2006, 12:15 AM
GO Mary

Oct 2nd, 2006, 12:16 AM
GO MARY :hearts: :hearts: :bounce:

Oct 2nd, 2006, 12:16 AM
I think Jelena will take this one, Mary isnt is her best shape yet and has been struggling.

Oct 2nd, 2006, 12:37 AM
Two of my favorites players facing each other in the 1st round:mad:

I think Jelena will win this match.

Oct 2nd, 2006, 12:48 AM
Heart is saying Mary in 3 but my head is saying Jelena in 2.

C'mon Mary, you can do it !

Oct 2nd, 2006, 12:49 AM
I hope it'll be Jelena. I just wonder how well she's feeling after Guangzhou.

Oct 2nd, 2006, 01:16 AM

Oct 2nd, 2006, 04:54 AM
Jelena is injured, but i still think she will win in 3 !
Jelena got some cramps and felt tired and dizzy during her match with Anna...
It is not serious! She said it was a sudden attack and she might get recovered the next day.

Oct 2nd, 2006, 04:59 AM
I don't understand why everyone is so worried about Jelena's injury. It was just a heat illness. Probably doesn't take that long to recover from. She'll probably be in better shape than Mary for this match. Although I really wish Mary could win this match somehow!

Oct 2nd, 2006, 05:04 AM
Jelena will win.

Oct 2nd, 2006, 05:13 AM
tough luck Mary...please win this match :help:

Oct 2nd, 2006, 06:55 AM
I picked Mary because the flight from China to Germany isn't easy to recover from quickly. There will be jetlag, and she's going from outdoor to indoor, totally different conditions. I think Jelena might be sluggish.

Oct 2nd, 2006, 07:10 AM
Go Mary!!!!!

I think Jelly's gonna win tho.

Oct 2nd, 2006, 10:29 AM
i think jelena will win this match!
but i cross my fingers for mary :worship:

Oct 2nd, 2006, 11:11 AM
I want Mary to win.!

Oct 2nd, 2006, 11:39 AM
I really want mary to win but if jankovic can keep up her form theres really only one winner here. Mary will be back next year fit and as strong as ever. :)
