Well not a very good match from Lena, but I've seen her play worse :shrug: So let's not put her in her tennis coffin yet people.

Jankovic played well. It was better than last year's bottom half semi-final anyway.

Lunaris
Sep 5th, 2008, 08:37 PM
I think it was a good match disregarding last two/three games where Dementieva totally lost control. Some unforced errors are expected in a match between two good defenders.
Happy for Jankovic, she deserves it. If only she could win the whole tourney.

I feel really bad for Lena D though... what an awful performance from her... so many wild :weirdo: unforced errors and she was useless at net.

A very professional performance from her today...she was resilient as ever, solid enough on serve, and hit the ball better than in any of her previous rounds.

Very poor effort by Elena and a big chance wasted for a GS title. I doubt she will get in such a good position again. :(

Elena made so many errors when going for the winner, Jankovic didnt need to do much on her own.

:lol: Congrats Jelena on your first grand slam final. Great defense and Dementieva fell in pretty much the same manner as all of Jelena's opponents so far.

Too bad for Dementieva though, she played great up until now, but the way she's playing she'll have more chances in the future for sure. Good luck to her in her next tournament.

Good luck in the final JJ, but the real question is: Does she have enough venom to take down Safina or Serena?

Sorry for Elena cause it was maybe her best chance to win a slam.She was the favorite for this match(considering her form)but Jelena was very solid, not nervous at all and she fought back in each set.She handled Elena's power pretty well and played a smart match.
The better player won today and it's good to finally see her in slam's final.

ewww horrible match!

It must be so frustrating to play Jankovic, she's literally like a wall and not in a good way, only putting balls back with almost nothing on them...she almost never attacked tofday...I guess the winds didn't help for the quality but after alot of good matches at this USO in both men and women that match just seems to be played in the backyard of a elementary school :o

Well that's really sad for Lena :sad:


But first final for Jelena, at least she played her ranking ;)

How did she actually win the Olympics?
If you have no serve, no plan and no volley's then how you want to win? Only thing she did had was errors.
Lena if you want to beat Jankovic, then hitting the ball back is not the way.

SERENA MUST take it all now!

Yaaay Jelena. :) Great job I'm so happy. It's a shame people have to try to discredit it. People in this forum, commentators, et al. Jelena was going to lose to Zheng. She didn't. She was going to get destroyed by Wozniacki :rolleyes:. Elena was going to mow over her. According to commentators she was the weakest of the top 3 seeds. Well who's the last one left? She was the weakest of the semifinalists. Who's in the final? Learn to give credit where credit is due. She is not a pusher, she does hit winners, she is in a grand slam final, and she's only gone down in straight sets to Serena once, so if she were to be the other finalist, a double bagel would be ludicrous. Go go go! :hearts:

I'm actually not as disappointed as I thought I'd be. I'm a fan of Jankovic wouldn't be fitting if she won the U.S. Open, since that was the place where she first started becoming a contender in Slams. I also hope Safina beat Serena so that Safina can make up for losing the French Open final. :) I love you Elena. :sad:

Agreed.

Jankovic in a slam final = death of women's professional tennis.It will be fun watching all you losers/fakers eat your words. Elena played great tennis and all those idiots who said she did not have no idea. She was just out thought and out fought by a superior talent. OK Elena lost her nerve at the end but it was all those balls coming back to her which did it. Bring on Serena please!

I thought Jelena was much the best player today.
She was down a break in both sets, and won both going away. 4 games in a row, then 4 of 5.
With Jelena's consistency, she's a FO favorite every year.
And she was mentally tough. She took both sets like a champion.

The END of GOLDementieva's relevance at GSs ?

Yeah, she didn't just make the SF's. :weirdo:

Anyway, Lena should be disgusted with herself. 4-2 0-30 on Jankovic's serve and she hits three easy ROS errors. That's the match right there. She also missed countless chances in the 2nd set. Footwork was piss poor on all the big points, she served like shit throughout. BH wasn't as good as in the QF. Big chance missed, but what's new.

Jankovic was wall, but she so badly wanted to choke in the end, just Lena wasn't having any of it. Gave it away in the last two games.

She was going to get destroyed by Wozniacki :rolleyes:. Elena was going to mow over her. According to commentators she was the weakest of the top 3 seeds. Well who's the last one left? She was the weakest of the semifinalists. Who's in the final? Learn to give credit where credit is due. She is not a pusher, she does hit winners, she is in a grand slam final, and she's only gone down in straight sets to Serena once, so if she were to be the other finalist, a double bagel would be ludicrous. Go go go! :hearts:Here here! JJ is a great talent - she just needs to learn how to win these important matches. This is a first step for her.

I feel sorry for Elena, and now i'm in doubt will she ever again in future will have chances like this, but if Elena not handled pressure even in semis, i'm pretty sure that she will again repeat pathetic 2004 final performances tommorow if she qualify. On other hand Jelena knows that this is her best chances so far to reach final and even title (compare her h2h with Henin, Sharapova and Ivanovic, with her h2h with Elena, Dinara and Serena) but she menaged that well and even laugh all the time (including when Dementieva have break advantage in both sets)!

If you have no serve, no plan and no volley's then how you want to win? Only thing she did had was errors.
Lena if you want to beat Jankovic, then hitting the ball back is not the way.

SERENA MUST take it all now!

Maybe if you'd watched you would know. Her serve, until today was actually pretty good, and she's managed to win the vast majority of points on her first serve. She just seemed to lose confidence in her game after a few errors when leading 4-2 30-0*

Jelena doesn't steal something or does something shameful.She is just playing her tennis in her style(you can call it "defensive" but we can't deny that a win is a win.).I think we need to give credits to her. ;)

I have quaestion about Jankovic. how can be number one in a world, how can be in a slam final if u just a pusher!!! when you have less winners in all matches then your opponent?

Semi-final is a good result, but the way she lost was really disappointing!

She is the Olympic Champion, but a GS is different...and Elena is a great player and I love her but she probably will never win a GS tournament!

I agree, after hitting 8-10 shots every second rally Dementieva was bound to make some errors being the more naturally aggressive player out of the two. The only thing which was really bad was her net play, other than that this was one of the best and most interesting matches in women's tournament this year.

I am sorry , but I disagree, you cannot use the difference between winners-unforced errors as a measure of determining if a match is better than another match where JJ is playing. JJ is such a terrific defender that alot of Dementieva shots that would have been winners against Serena of Safina are just losers against JJ. In fact, the Dementieva- Jelena match as for now is better than the Safina-Serena match because is it much more understandable that a long beautiful fought rally may end up with an Error, than a short rally ending on an error as in the Safine-Serena match or boring winners right after the serve :help:, the Jelena-Elena match is better.

Besides harder and faster ground strokes and serves, im not seeing much thats better in the current match.

There were pretty good rallies in this match, and I overall enjoyed it. Much more so than Serena/Safina which I had to turn off because I found it extremely boring.

Sure, this wasn't the BEST MATCH EVER. However, I can't see how it was a poor quality match. Maybe a poor performance from Elena, whose capable of much better, but :confused:

Lena couldn't cope with the wind. Her serve lacked the penetration it has had in earlier rounds as she cut the pace and the second serve was back to the bad old days of wondering if she was going to get it in. Lost control of her forehand so many times, while the backhand was very poor too.

Thought JJ played the conditions well, very few errors, high first serve percentage, avoided giving up many double faults, soaked up the pressure and let Lena self-destruct. There were spells when it looked like Lena would hit through her but they never lasted that long. 4-2 0-30 seemed like the key moment in the match to me. JJ came up with some good serves that went unreturned and Lena promptly collapsed.

Really disappointed because the signs beforehand suggested that Lena was in good enough form to hit through JJ but on the day she couldn't deliver. Well played JJ a deserved winner.

Well even if you're right, Dementieva should have copied Jankovic's first servers when she saw that she is serving so many second servers and serving them so badly. She shuold have compromise on the speed of her first serves, just make sure to put them in , and then have a lot of patience through the rally till she has a proper opportunity to hit a winner because , again, it was such a windy day.

Yours was one of many mourning for women's tennis because JJ won today. The match was actually high quality in the conditions they played in. Sure Serena and Dinara hit better shots but they do not do it consistently and they do not get as many balls back.

This match was utter crap. Only one player was trying to make winners, the other was bringing the ball back on court . Sad day for tennis

Yes, because being a good athlete, hitting every single ball down the middle of the court and/or puffballing every shot she had to run for is great thinking. Jelena must be some kind of genius. :silly:I think you missing the essence of matchplay because your a sore loser. She won by playing tennis according to the rules. There is no rule saying you have to out power your opponent/have a great serve/be great at the net .. thankfully this is not ice skating where we have to judge how well they executed their moves. If you win more games/sets you win. Is that difficult to understand?

Are u crazy? Of course you not saw Elena's Olympics matches. WTF about no plan - not true. best FH on a tour, best groundstrokes on a TOUR. That was just another not Elena's day. Elena's serve is still a joke but no as in 2004 and before, sorry... I have quaestion about Jankovic. how can be number one in a world, how can be in a slam final if u just a pusher!!! when you have less winners in all matches then your opponent? Jankovic plan is just to hit every single point and errors. enough with this.I expect every time you lose at anything you call your opponent a pusher/cheat/lucky bastard. JJ has intelligence which is probably something you struggle with. Elena hit lots of great shots but she did not have a game plan to beat JJ who matched her shot for shot until Elena lost her cool. Just like all you boring idiots on here do every time JJ wins.

Congratulations to Jelena on making her first GS final. It was her first this year she wasn't injured in. And she's had to fight in all her matches to get here. Good luck in the final vs Serena.

As for the match today - Lena - well both players - played much better for most of the match than she's been given credit for in this thread. The points were certainly better, and longer and more exciting than the Serena vs Dinara match.

It was really those last 2 games of the match that Lena was awful. I mean Jelena has lots of problems closing out matches and tends to get nervous and go more passive. And precisely at that point Lena plays her worst two games of the match.

funny thing is this is coming from a david ferrer fan aka "top ten player". :haha:
the guy who just pushes the ball around and does nothing other than that. No wonder he lost to a japanese player ranked outside top 50. :haha:

Pics goes for his shots , I have seen him destroying Nadal - Roddick and many others with winners followed by other winners . You can not say the same about Jankovic


But my question is another . How comes Elena in your sig if you never root for her ? . You celebrate all her defeats basically

I was really rooting for Elena, but I think the Olympics really caught up with both her and Dinara. They both have been some of the most consistent players for a while, but Elena after a great start, seemed to lose some of her fire. From losing the first set lead, Elena seemed to be hanging on by her fingernails. All credit to JJ who has gradually improved as the tournament has progressed. Very solid today, and her defensive play frustrated Elena who just seemed to wilt.
I'm pleased for Jelena to finally make that slam final. Shame that Elena couldn't keep the energy going. She just made too many errors on the big points.

I didn't think this match was that bad. :eek: There were a LOT of long, fun rallies and smart play from both players considering the wind. Jankovic's defense was top notch and really allowed her to relax during rallies and play more aggressive when she got the chance. Elena was really patchy, unfortunately.

You're such a joke of a tennis fan. :lol: Pusher is such a horribly inept and misleading word. Technically, every player pushes the ball back - some do it with more pace, and other's direct it with more depth and accuracy. :shrug: Just because you can't appreciate counterpunching and other types of tennis besides the basic, tennis for ADD personalities doesn't mean it was crap. You just didn't enjoy it.

Many of my fave players are counterpunchers (Nadal , Hewitt , Ferrero nowadays ). The difference is that they go for their shots , they bring the ball back with aggresiveness , while Jankovic throws the ball to the other side of the net waiting the UEs of her rivals (pusher) .She rarely goes for a winner early in the rally

WHAT. Nadal is NOT a typical counterpuncher, and Jankovic and Hewitt play almost exactly the same game except Hewitt hits harder...because he's a guy. Jankovic picks her spots to be aggressive and go for winners, but she doesn't NEED to do that most of the time. Why would you want her to stray away from what works best for her? She isn't as good as Serena or Safina at outright attacking - her strengths are her movement and consistency, so why throw those out and try to hit big?

Some of you are stupid.

In tennis there are many styles of play and your body height and strength etc are things that help your style of play.

Jelena isnt very tall and shes very fast not powerful either

You want her to try to be agressive? Tennis is not all about hitting winners but some of you wouldnt know shit cause you dont play.

Pushing the ball is using your opponets pace you cant say someone's a pusher just because they dont go for winners that's consistent tennis and those are called counter punchers

Idiots on WTAworld...like always
