I see she pulled out of Nottingham 50k after her pretty good run in the French.

She's still down for Birmingham and quallies of Eastbourne.

Jarka is through to the second round in Birmingham, she beat Vania King in two sets 64 64. Must be pretty close to her best ranking now? She faces Na next round.

She overpowered Marta quite easily. I like the English she's been learning. Marta did what she thought was a double fault in going over the line on second serve. They continued playing and Marta fluked a return as a very tantalising lob which just arced over Jarmila and landed around about the service line. She was pretty annoyed at the linesman and she said to the umpire "You don't do anything you just sit in your frigging chair!" :D

This is expected, she shouldn't have too much trouble with Akgul who has been strugling for form lately.

Quickly up 2-0 in the second. Feel like such a loser doing this on my own but it beats the hell out of studying for mid-year exams.

Jarka doing her best to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory but Akgul may have something to say about that as she hands Jarka the break with a DF.

Another horrible draw.

It could be worse, she could play Serena first round. Atleast against Lucie she is a chance, i dont think Lucie is all that great on grass. Second round would be a decent result and she will still be going up in the rankings with it.
