identical scoreline to wozniacki match at AO

May 26th, 2009, 05:58 PM
Amazing Jelena! :hearts: Many important points for her ranking! :D :inlove:
Karolina :hug:

May 26th, 2009, 05:58 PM
Awesome result for Jelena :worship:
Great 2nd and 3rd sets too after a poor opener

Good luck vs. Demented in R2 :wavey:

May 26th, 2009, 05:58 PM
Pathetic from Karolina! :o

Congrats Dokic! :yeah:

May 26th, 2009, 05:58 PM
Match will be televised on Court Centrale :D

May 26th, 2009, 05:58 PM
Terrible first set from Jelena, gifted it to Sprem with her UE's.
Really got it together in the last two sets, hitting more winners and shrugging off the UEs. I think the wind bothered her and she just needed time to adjust.

Had some trouble closing it out as she failed to serve it out at 5-1 in third set.

Fantastic Jelena. I'm so happy.

Grand Slam 3 Set Queen? :lol:
(exact same score as against Wozniaki this match!)

Love you Jelena!!! :worship: :worship: :worship:

5 threads. Jelena is EPIC

May 26th, 2009, 05:59 PM
Congrats. Similar scoreline to Maria's.;)

May 26th, 2009, 05:59 PM
Great result. Dokic is one of the only players that I'm rooting for this year. I was worried about this match, but she seemed to play well after a poor start.

May 26th, 2009, 06:00 PM
omg soo happy jelena:D played gr8 after 1st set!!

May 26th, 2009, 06:00 PM
Dokic v Dementieva... great matchup

May 26th, 2009, 06:01 PM
jelena :yeah: great 2nd and 3rd sets :D

good luck next round

May 26th, 2009, 06:01 PM
Phew was extremely worried after that awful first set. Her stats in the last two sets, however, were phenomenal!:drool:

Up next is Dementieva, and Dokic is a big match player. Such a throw back to the early 2000's should be a entertaining match.:)

May 26th, 2009, 06:01 PM
:lol: At all the threads that were first made, like 6!

YAY Jelena!! Great last two sets! Cant wait until her next match. :bounce:
I'd scream right now but its 3am, everyone is asleep!!

Jelena did a great job of eliminating all the unforced errors that cost her in the first set. Well done, welcome back to Paris! ;)

May 26th, 2009, 06:02 PM
:woohoo: :sobbing: so happy

May 26th, 2009, 06:02 PM
C'MON!!!!! *fist pump*

Nice match Jelena :hearts: After the first set, Sprem started spraying the ball a bit and that gave Jelena the confidence she needed to stop making stupid mistakes and take control. Conditions were tough, but Jelena did a better job with it as the match went on, the wind became less of a factor.

And as I suspected, Dokic was the player in control for the most part of this match. 19 winners to 13, 6 aces to 1. More UE's and DF's as well, but she was dictating. Not the greatest effort from Karolina after the first set, didn't play great tennis by any means. Hopefully she'll be rockin' it on the grass. Ajmo.

Now give Dementieva a nice match in the next round, Jeca! SHOO!!!!! :banana: :rocker2: :hearts:

May 26th, 2009, 06:02 PM
finally again a good win for Jelena!:)

good luck against Elena

May 26th, 2009, 06:04 PM
Well done Jelena :yeah:

Congrats Jelena. Now vs Dementieva :armed: That should be televised ;)

May 26th, 2009, 06:05 PM
Klina :sad: :sobbing: :hug: but Jelena :woohoo: Good luck in the next round! :D

May 26th, 2009, 06:06 PM
hope she beats dementieva

May 26th, 2009, 06:07 PM
I'm pretty sure Dokic beat Dementieva to win the Kremlin Cup. ;) You can do it Jelena!

May 26th, 2009, 06:08 PM
If Jelena plays well, I can see her winning against Dementieva, since Elena Dementieva can lose to anyone, literally anyone!!!!!

Good win vs slumping Sprem!! Now upset Dementieva!

May 26th, 2009, 06:09 PM
she is winning matches where it most counts :hearts:
i think she can beat Elena :dance:

May 26th, 2009, 06:12 PM
wta needs you
tennis needs you
we need you

we love you Jelena, congrats and good luck in second round :D

May 26th, 2009, 06:13 PM
Jelena saving her best for the slams! Well done :yeah:

If only she had a few more matches behind her I think the Dementieva match could be really good, let's hope Jelena is still able to make it close. Good blast from the past match, it better be on a stadium court.

May 26th, 2009, 06:13 PM
Congrats Jelena. :)

Karolina. :hug:

May 26th, 2009, 06:13 PM
Good job Jelena. Good luck thursday

May 26th, 2009, 06:13 PM
I'm glad Jelena got through even if I was cheering for K-Lina. I'm sure Karo is gonna be able to win a couple of matches on grass now.

May 26th, 2009, 06:13 PM

Can't hardly wait for the next match. Regardless of the result, it'll be great to see Dokic fight Dementieva. Pity I like both players. Someone I cheer for will be beaten very soon. :sad:

May 26th, 2009, 06:14 PM

Ok so after this 1set I was thinking she'll tank like in Warsaw and do a hit-or-miss thing again.
So when I saw 4:0 in 2nd I was like :eek: Of course got nervous when she lost Karolina's serve at 5:1 but luckily she held to 15. :worship::bounce:
Eurosport showed the mp and I liked it- was so simple, Karolina netted a fh return, Jelena pumped fist and gave a modest smile to herself o maybe to someone(Borna,Tino? guessing) so then she made a cross sign and looked to the sky before shaking hands with Karolina :)

So happy for her, gaining points, turning things around, proving me wrong, maybe it's something new after these really weird last months. Good luck against Lena D although I don't know who to cheer for :angel:

One stat-> Jelena had 28 errors today in 3sets, against Olaru she made 29 in one set ;)

May 26th, 2009, 06:35 PM

May 26th, 2009, 06:41 PM
klina :bigcry: but she made too many unforced errors :o
who knows what would happen if she didn't waste 30-40 in the first game and 40-15 in the second game of the first set or even 40-0 at 1-1 in the third :o :shrug:
anyway, klina didn't deserve win with such a bad play :sad: :shrug:
but congrats jelena :yeah:, good win for you :hug:
hope klina will recover soon :sobbing:

May 26th, 2009, 07:01 PM
Didn't see this one coming :eek: Dokic was absolutely pathetic in Warsaw and now she won. Match between two players I like so well done Jelena and :hug: for Karolina.

tennis ace
May 26th, 2009, 07:20 PM
Wooo! Well Done Jelena :)

May 26th, 2009, 07:33 PM

I got worried after she lost the first, but thankfully she regrouped and didnt pull a Warsaw.

I hope I get to see Jelena vs Elena :drool:

Jelena is 5-3 against Elena :eek:
I suppose thats one of the perks of not being on tour for about 4 years, you get to keep your good head-to-heads :lol:

Klina :hug:

May 26th, 2009, 07:35 PM
Why is the scoreline is identical to Maria's? lol

Congrats Jelena though.
Ugh, I hate this match.

May 26th, 2009, 10:02 PM
Good win for Jelena :D So glad to see her get through the first round in another GS :bounce: I can't believe this is really happening!

May 26th, 2009, 10:04 PM
Aww well done Jelena, good win :yeah: :kiss:

May 26th, 2009, 10:15 PM
Good win for Jelena :)

Good to see she didn't stop fighting.

Hopefully her match against Elena will be televised here and she can score the upset!

May 26th, 2009, 10:29 PM
Jelly :bounce:
Just like Maria, struggled in the first then pulled it together in the final two sets. Good luck against Elena!

May 26th, 2009, 10:30 PM
Well done Jelena!!!!!

I hopew she can really push Elena D. next round

May 26th, 2009, 11:05 PM
What a nice comeback for Jelly :yeah:

K-LINA :hug:

May 26th, 2009, 11:07 PM
Way to go Jelena! Nothing to lose now against Dementieva, so just go for it! :D

May 26th, 2009, 11:55 PM
Tough gig in Round 2, she'll need to play out of her skin if she's to challenge Dementieva. But you never know what could happen.

May 26th, 2009, 11:56 PM
JELA! :inlove: Well done, so glad you fought this one out. This win will do huge things for her confidence at just the right time, right before she has to take on a top player! I think anything is possible if she can match it with Lena for power, which we know she can. Lena is almost always steady, though, so crazy UE from Jelena will keep her out of contention. She needs to have a great match, good luck!

May 26th, 2009, 11:59 PM
Good win, Jelena!:D;)


Now upset Dementieva, Jelena!:rocker:

May 27th, 2009, 12:16 AM
OMG :inlove:

Was so not expecting this, well done girl. :yeah:

May 27th, 2009, 12:20 AM
please beat dementieva

May 27th, 2009, 12:49 AM
Wow... what a comeback. After the 1st set, I taught "See ya in Wimbledon", but she didn't rolled over and won the match :love:

May 27th, 2009, 12:55 AM
really tough draw for Jelena but wow what a great comeback and an eventually easy win :) great job jelena! cant wait for tomorrow night as im sure she will be on tv here. :D

May 27th, 2009, 01:11 AM

Great job Jelena!

May 27th, 2009, 05:17 AM
Jelena, really nice regroup after the first set. I was sooo afraid she would tank because she was playing so bad in the first. Thought K-lina helped give her some confidence. :p

I have a good feeling about a possible upset over Dementieva. Or hopefully it's not just wishful thinking. hmmm idk. Let's hope for a good match, regardless. :cool:

May 27th, 2009, 06:40 AM
I think Dokic's tanking days are over. :lol:

May 27th, 2009, 06:53 AM
Jelena :bounce: Thank God you won!

May 27th, 2009, 09:34 AM
I watched the match from the beginning and almost turned it off, but Set 2 and Set 3 Jelena were complete opposites of Set 1 Jelena. The first set was horrible, but then she found her range and really started hitting consistent deep groundies that Karolina just couldn't control. Congrats Jelena :kiss:

May 27th, 2009, 11:52 AM
not bad, not bad at all...
