Both of these are stunning ladies..........but I'm sure glad that Vera won :woohoo:

This win all but guarantees her a top 16 seeding at Rolland Garros :hearts:

Only converted 7 of 14 break points though :o

So in short

:woohoo::hearts::o:kiss:

I hope this JJ lose is only product of her bad day and not connected with her health conditions (she needs perfect health for claycourt season).

BTW since RG 2006 Jelena Jankovic played 8 claycourt tournaments and only once she lose against player which is not in WTA#1 (Ana Ivanovic)!!!

And today she lose against Bepa F***ing Zvonareva :eek::eek::eek:.

Rest your body JJ :wavey: and better prepare herself for Europian Red Clay (and please... after FED CUP dont play that Warsaw EXO instead Lindsay if they calling you).

Surprising victory, but great nonetheless. After losing to Jankovic two weeks ago, Zvonareva got some revenge tonight.

But if you thinking that after 3 tournaments where Jelena is unbeaten, 4 where she lose against worlds #1 and one when she lose against Ana Ivanovic - this her lose against Vera Zvonareva in her 9th claycourt tournament in this period (since 2006) is logical... OK...

BTW... i'm sure that if Tamira Paszek or Sofia Arvidsson have only litle more experience at big events - Jelena will never survive down and bad day and dont have chances for comeback after 5-2 in 3rd set (including several MP for opponent) and she will not reach that AO/08 SF or Miami final. Today she also have bad day - but opponent is way too experience to choke after 5-2 in 3rd...

I'm atleast happy that Vera is player which use this JJ "gift" (after all her bad lucks with injuries in last 3 seasons). After this success Vera is officialy very serious contender for YEC this season and even now she have some chances for Olympics.

This match was fantastic, particularly from Zvonareva. Just...both groundstrokes were SO on, she even hit a few good volleys. Her smashes and drive volleys which usually go out almost all went in too for winners. :eek:

This was by far the best match I've seen Vera play in I don't know how long. JJ's defense was great as usual, but Vera had all the answers. It wasn't until deep in the third when JJ started to look really sluggish, Vera was just too good. There was no injury. There weren't assloads of unforced errors from JJ at all. This was simply Vera near her best level.

Also, I was very pro-Vera out there...I applauded loudly for nearly every point she won, and I yelled out "BELIEVE" or "COME ON" or "DAVAI VERA" or whatever a lot. I hope she heard me some of those times. :hug:

Plus seeing JJ lose live in person was just fantastic. :hearts:

Vera has been so good in Charleston...I hope the winner of her semifinal takes the title.

Not a chance! :(

ESPN only shows Serena matches. Vera's match against Bartoli went long, and they were still playing when Serena v Sharapova was supposed to start. ESPN2 spent 15 minutes re-running commercials (some 3 times) and doing an interview with Conchita Martinez rather than show the on-going match. They finally showed the last game of the match.

Every one of Serena's matches seems to have been scheduled for ESPN's broadcasts. Amazing coincidence!

The only way we'll see Elena or Vera on TV is if they make the final. And if Serena's in the final, we might see her opponent 20% of the time.
