Now that was some bad tennis. Millions of breaks! Jelena completely lost her serve! Its not existing at the momment! I guess return is what made Ana win or it's that movie award she got yesterday ;)

I think she hit 3 aces in a row to win this match :eek:
Ana is so up and down this year but when she is in form, she is very dangerous. Good win.

3 aces in a row for Ana to finish the match :eek:
Anyway, congrats sweetie and good luck in the semis
JJ :bigcry:
Stop playing so many tournaments. Rest and show your best in Charleston :yeah: (far away from Ana in the draw :scared: )

nice one ana. keep it up. maybe playing on clay is teaching her to construct points and not try to always blaze a winner off every shot

nice one ana. keep it up. maybe playing on clay is teaching her to construct points and not try to always blaze a winner off every shot

I doubt Ivanovic's "point construction" on this match went much beyond 1-2 on her service games and trying to hit ROS winners out of both Jankovic's first and second serves. It won't work all the time, but when it does there's nothing her opponent can do. And on clay, it's actually more likely to work - the higher bounce gives her more time to run around her BH on the ROS and sets the ball nicely right up on her hitting zone.

Sometimes I noticed, while checking the scoreboard, that Ivanovic's opponents were down 0-30 on their service games after like 10 seconds - this means ROS winners (and of course some DFs due to them desperately going for more on their 2nd serves to prevent them from just being blasted away).

Still, I'm just guessing how the match went from the stats, and I may be wrong.

Why do some people think that JJ lost because she's tired. She hasn't made it far in any tournament since the first of the year. I think she was outplayed by Ana today. And this is coming from a HUGE Jelena fan, honestly.

It's not like she's entered every tournament and has made the Finals each time. She's had weeks off at a time.

I think she was outplayed by Ana today. And this is coming from a HUGE Jelena fan, honestly.

I think some people are being a bit harsh on Jelena. Ana is capable of beating just about anyone on any given day, and it could be that her game is just not matching up well with Ana's, at least for the moment.

Anyway, Congrats ANA!!! :worship:

Get to the final now!!
