She is so tight, making mistake after mistake, rushing winners, moving poorly to the slice. :lol::lol:

Along with the trouble with the slice, Roberta is using lots of dropshots that Jankovic cannot get to.

Does J.J look even more lean and muscular to you guys,even more than before?:eek: She looks like she has a twelve pack of abs under that dress.:lol: Those muscles seem a little too tight, she needs to do some pilates to become more agile. She is so unhappy out there, I hope she can regain her joy on the court.:D

I'm in my quiet campus computer lab with headphones on and that's why I can here a little bit more. But it is kind of low...

Seems like she had trouble with Vinci's slices and her own net play.
Then she got used to it, played better near the end of the 1st and in the 2nd, and Vinci is imploding because of it

JJ is doing splits :D

Why is Jankovic playing so far behind the baseline?

When JJ gets a short ball, she's moving up and taking control. But when she's NOT in control, is Vinci hitting so hard Jankovic has to take the ball two meters behind the baseline?

Renalicious

That's true. Hmmm.

Maybe this is just how Jankovic has always played players outside the top fifty on red clay. It's not like I see her play players ranked that low all that often. But outside of Kim Clijsters, I've never seen anybody be successful playing that way. It's like she's channeling Clijsters til she gets a short ball, then trying to turn into Monica Seles, unless she gets dragged to the net, then she needs to be Jana Novotna.

There's nothing wrong with any of that, but it sure doesn't look like it's instinctive.

She's taking Vinci second serve behind the baseline! Since when does the bigger, stronger, faster, more highly skilled player do that?

She says her problem is changes in her body, but she looks the same to me. She's playing like she trying to follow instructions.

NOTE: Headphones help a LOT.
