Jie was up 6-4 5-3 and had a match-point.

In the third Julia was up 4-0, then Jie came back to 4-4 and had two break-points for a 5-4 lead. Choking at its best.

Nice work Julia. I am a big Jie Zheng fan but for some reason i am not that devastated. Julia has a very hard hitting game, she deserves this nice win. ;) She is almost as small as Jie, but hits very hard.... just her serve is weak. I hope she beats Birnerova. I would like to see Julia vs Mauresmo. ;)

Very unfortunate.... I left at the start of the 2nd set coz I had more important matters, but I left thinking Zheng had this in the bag.....

Jie why do you suck so much in GS tournaments? first the loss to Rodionova @ USO and then this

:fiery:

this is the last time i am going to think about this match because all its doing is depressing me..

..but isnt it weird that jie was the first woman to get the 4th round of a slam and yet she is now reallllllly bad in them. must have jinxed her :lol:

julia - good luck against eva :D if jie can beat her at a slam then you certainly can :lol:

Very surprised when I saw Jie lost this one. I guess Julia likes upsetting seeded players at the AO.

Sigh. So close yet so far. Jie better re-group and get her act together soon. These close losses to low-ranked players won't do if she has ambitions to get inside the top-20.
