Very good match!
Vera was soo gutsy on MPs! Great to see!

Jelena ultimately outlasted her! At 2-2 Vera didn't put enough balls in court and that cost her the third set. A lot for Vera to take her because she really did play some great tennis despite a lot of errors.

Their shots look the same :lol: They play literally alike! Vera really should have tried to do something different, maybe come to the net more or something but Jelena was too solid today from the back!

Vera and Jelena's serves and return of serve just aren't the business.

I thought I'd get a heart attack at the end :lol:

Really nice match :D
Jelena :D I thought she'd choke it after she thought she won a match and it appared that her serve was out. I'm glad she proved me wrong :yeah:

Vera's grunt at MP #1 :tape: She REALLY wanted to win (well, not suprisingly) :hug:

Once against Jankovic is playing half dead only to come back as a lion when their opponents think they have it all wrapped up. How nice of her!

I want to scream. Fuck both of them. The better player won, I'm just so disappointed in the loser.

Fifth top ten win for Jelena this year. Good job.

Entertaining match, Vera made a couple to many errors in the third set and it cost her but Jelena was very solid and playing well during the match.

94 to 92 points

I thought their UE counts are more than their winners?:confused:

Anyway, good match. Good rallies.
JJ's overhead winners :worship: especially one was hit at the baseline.:hearts: Stepped it up when it matters.:yeah:
Vera :awww: Just bad luck. I thought if she could be consistent, she'll win this for sure. Some good forehand winners too!:yeah:
Good luck JJ in the final!:rocker2:

Just realized their linesmen/women were so bad at times.:tape:

All in all a good week for Vera and she has still chances to make the YEC.
JJ's serve was kinda off today and I think she has a hard time dealing with the cold weather this week.She was a bit slow at times, stretching her legs regularly.
Nice to see her more focus than before but some things are still the same : she's afraid of the net litteraly (she could have finish some points and ended losing them).

Take the title now :)

good match

94 to 92 points

:confused:

Jankovic -- 29 winners to 35 UEs
Zvonareva -- 32 winners to 46 UEs

But the match was very entertaining. Vera never figured out how to deal with JJ's BH DTL.

Really a great match :D, happy to see that quality of tennis again. Shame that Vera couldn't realize the upset, it was really close. She was successfully stuck to her gameplan but didn't play well on a couple of points.
Jelena is playing better in this tournament than in the US Open, there is more aggressiveness in her strokes, that's better to watch.

It's Zvonareva, thread starter.

Vera played two horrible games at 22 in the final set that probably cost her the match. But it was an entertaining match with good baseline rallies, but I was wondering why Vera let Jankovic hit her BH DTL many times? Both players were serving very bad though.

A very good match.
JJ played well, but she is looking very tired. Hopefully she can take the title.
Vera was awesome in the second (so many good forehand winners) but kinda self-destructed a bit in the 3rd :hug:

Poor Vera. :sad: :hug: She really wanted this. She was so pissed that she took it out on her racket right after she shook the umpire's hand. The racket went *smash smash*! :lol: Better luck in Moscow. Now c'mon Kuzzy.....take your long awaiting title.:banana:

Lots of nice rallies in this one. :drool:
Vera really didn't have many answers for Jelena's BDTL, which worked pretty effectively.
And Jelena won 16/16 of the points off of her first serve in the first set...nice :hatoff:
