FANTASTIC first set... it really was amazing. No breaks of serve, no break points. :eek:

Great show ladies, they're both soooooo classy. :worship: Nice performance Mary, work on your game and come back injury free next year. :D

Jelena!!!!!!!!!!! :banana:

What bad luck for Mary to have drawn Jelena in the first round. She competed very well, but it just wasn't enough today :sad: Jelena continues to display the top 5 tennis she has been playing in recent months. Well done Jelena and good luck in rd 2 :)

Mary is on the right track.. just a few more matches and she'll be back, hopefully. I am just worried that she'll continue to get bad draws. :(

Great match from both women :worship:

Jelena's serve was the difference today (though Mary was also serving pretty well) - more than 70% of first serves in and winning 80% of the points when it did.

It's good to see Mary playing at a high level again; unfortunately for her Jankovic was a very difficult draw.

really fantastic match, the first set in particular. obviously i am disappointed with mary's loss but if she can play this well at 60-70% then i cant wait till next year when she should have really got into her stride. i really think she has a chance to get back to the top 10.

it was great to see both players applauding each other on great shots and the hand shake on the end was really warm and genuine - great to see.

take the title now jeca, because then mary can say that in 5 of the 6 events she has played in, she has lost to the eventual champion :p

Now that was a quality match! Such clean performance from both, especially in the first set. And it was obvious they enjoyed it too and have much respect for each other. Shame it was only the first round and Mary had sucha bad draw, she's definitely playing better now.
Jelena didn't face a break point at all in this match. :eek: Don't remember the last time it happened to her. She served phenomenally well.

Congrats, Jelena! :bounce:

Great game to watch. Lovely show of emotion from both players and a nice amount of mutual respect.

Well done, Mary, too. She may have lost but it was a positive match for her.

I don't like to say this, but Jankovic is a real danger for every player.
Very little unforced errors, good defending, speed and she can score.
I'm certainly not a fan, but she's playing great tennis.

Great match.....this makes me wonder though what Mary did last week against Bondarenko! She played great and was moving pretty good I must say. Nice variation of shots...not the usual stuff that comes from Mary's racket.

Go Mary

Almost every Jankovic match nowadays is entertaining.
Excellent first set. It's time for Jelena to go one step further and to bring some titles home. One tier 4 doesn't do her justice.
Mary should keep playing. She looked a lot better than the previous matches I'd seen her.

Yay Jelena. Mary:sad: My two of 3 favorite players had to face off. Mary I'm happy your playing better and its only a matter of time we reach form again> Jelena your just so good right now. FInally after 2 long years of wishing you the best you have finally gotten good form and is showing our true potential. I wish someone would upload the first set as it sounds great.

They really looked like they were having fun playing, both of them - thank you Mary & Jelena! :D :rocker2:

It was an awesome match, really. I was at the tournament and the crowd was absolutely fascinated by both, though Mary was the one who was supported more out there.

A little footnote: They had to share one practise court the same afternoon and Mary was hitting with 100% power all the time, I think to impress Jelena quite a bit.
Jelena won't admit it, but she sometimes looked over and saw Mary hitting one of these hard balls. It was funny to watch. :p
