Now that we have a Zi cheering thread and a Jie cheering thread, I think we should also have a thread just for doubles :)

Zi/Jie face Nuria Llagostera Vives/Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez in the first round of Berlin :o Nuria/Maria Jo beat/Zi Jie 64 64 in the first round of RG last year :fiery:

Jie and Zi lost 46 36. Won 1 more game than in Rome :tape:

37% of first serve pts won :spit:

Yan said their competitors have already studied their games well since Yan/Zheng won 06 AO and Wim WD titles. Their serves are being attacked all the time. they said they will try to improve their serves before the Olympics. Now they will have 2-week training before Wimbledon. So only Na Li will play a warm-up grass tournament. :p

Jun 30th, 2008, 06:51 PM
Vastly disappointing.
They fought well but not well enough in the last game.
I feel Zi let Jie down at times, but at times Jie too. But I think they were aiming mor at Zi when possible...
I'm so crushed :sad: They served for the first set, too... What the hell man.

Sassy-Na
Jul 1st, 2008, 12:11 AM
a bit unlucky, jie's or yan's the string of the racquet was broken when she hit the ball and made an UE because of that. then they got broken and lost in the first set :fiery:

CANADA8
Jul 1st, 2008, 09:54 AM
Yep, I was there yesterday (seems like a lot of the forum were watching; we should have organised a day out!?).
To be fair I thought Sfar volleyed very well, but Jie really carried Zi yesterday.
Zi needs to learn to lob more; she just seemed to try and blast the ball at the other girls, who were so close to the net I was screaming to myself "LOB THEM!!":mad:
I'll post a link to some of the photo's I took yesterday.
Saw Jie win her singles, very well played.:bounce:
Wished her luck afterwards & she smiled and said thanks.

AJZ.
Jul 1st, 2008, 12:25 PM
aww lucky you :)
But yes I kind of agree, Zi wasn't too strong yesterday, but I think there's a gap in the mentality of the two at the moment :S

well, jie finished a 3 hr WS match b4 :p

and they wont focus on WD from next year :sad: bc little jie wants to play higher tier tournaments and zi has to play lower tier tournaments to build up her confidence and earn pts to improve her WS ranking. but they will play together at G.S tournaments and Super Tier 1 tournaments :p

Well, that was all about Zi. The bad results were due to Zi's fault. She was playing with 0 confidence. I hope she regroups. But if they find their game, they are definitely a top team ;)

Well, I ever think both are 50-50. I would say Zi was a better doubles player because of the volleys. I remember matches in 2006 where Zi was who was "dictating" the team. But oh well, last year, it was definitely Jie. Zi was making tons of errors with her BH in every match :help:

so hsieh/pengs a very strong team i think. they gave each spanish team a bagel in this month. IMO, yan/zheng'd be separated and each partnered with a big foreign player (big serve and good for net approach/attack). like vives/martinez, martinez can serve big and always hold her serve easily.

Yan, please play more ITF singles to improve your singles ranking. I'd like to see you play doubles with Jie.

Jie said since Yan cannot play most of the WTA events, it is difficult to play together. She doesn't want Yan plays doubles with her but missing the chance in playing ITFs at the same period of time.

Actually I think it is good to guess who'll be Zheng's new partner.:lol:

Jie's right. But at least they can play in Grand Slams.
