Great draw. If she can beat the qualifier, and then beat Martic or Kustova, she should have played herself into enough form to beat the Pironkova. Definately expecting atleast a QF.

Okey, this is an ITF tournament but the draw is still hard I think. Qualifiers are always tough, then Martic in second round. :help:
Jelena if you get to the QF you are back I think:unsure:

We'll have so see I'm certainly not going to predict anything just yet after all she essential started again from scratch about four weeks ago.
Its a small victories situation for Jelena at the moment one point at a time and one match at a time. I have to say I am wary because one week is not a long time to improve on the US Open we all know that she can beat great players but can also lose to pretty much anyone.

Anyways really hoping for the best she certainly deserves it.

Sep 6th, 2009, 06:16 PM
go jelena she just has to get used to competing again, finishing off points and moving into her shots. Against flipkens she wasnt able to finish points off from a dominant position in the rally and when she got a short ball she'd hit it and then retreat. I think match practice will fix all that....

Sep 6th, 2009, 06:35 PM
Can she win? Well, I always think she can win any tournament but mostly I get it wrong.. I don´t know the other players except Sprem. Like RoyBatty said she can win from everyone, but also lose from some unknown qualifier.
Anyway, good luck Jelena!:bounce:

Petra Martic is next. She won 4 matches at USO ( three in QD and one in MD ) :unsure:

Martic will be tough. She is a higher level of player who must be doing a lot of things well at the moment, having said that though the match will undoubtably be on Jelena's racket.

I predict another up and down performance just got to hope for more ups than downs.

I'm going to make a bold prediction and say that Martic will be easier than Jurak...

Babolatpro880
Sep 9th, 2009, 05:04 PM
I don't even care what the score was. First win for Jelena in months, so any win is good. Martic is a much tougher opponent than Jurak, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Pironkova, the other seed in Jelena's quarter is already out, so hopefully Jelena can get on a run in these 100Ks.

Mastodon
Sep 10th, 2009, 03:35 PM
I don't think she will withdraw but I think that she is in a tough situation ideally she would want to take at least a month off to work solely on her game and fitness and comeback in a more competitive shape but with the end of the season so near she can't afford to do that.

auntie janie
Sep 10th, 2009, 03:48 PM
I think it's good for Jelena to be in these tournament settings even if she can't win many matches right now. She probably still tires easily and it may be tough for her to play two days in a row until she slowly gets back to full fitness, but at least in the tournament environment she gets the opportunity to hit with some decent players, keep her head in competition mode, run or work out with other players, etc.

For now I'm happy that she has her first post-mono win under her belt. I know she can build up from here. Best of luck to you, kid. :kiss:

A loss is never a good thing, but hey, she played a tournament, and she got a win. :shrug: Pironkova is a player that would've had way more expectations to do well at this tournament and she lost 1st round, so while it's disappointing to see Jela lose out to a player like Martic, she's at least recovered from her illness and able to play matches now. :)

I think Jelena would have fought much harder if this tournament had been wta tournament. She may think, ok I can fight to win it, but what am I gonna win if I win this match. I think she started really well to the match which I thought that moment she will win 6/1 6/2 or like so, but when she lost that first set she said herself bye bye Italy, let's try to win it easier in Sofia next week.

Had a bit of spare time so I decided to watch yesterdays match because I gave up on the live stream half way through the first set. Overall she played ok there were definitely some good signs but some missed shots on crucial points really cost her e.g. 15/30 on Martic's serve Jelena missed an easy short ball put away and consecutive double faults to lose the first set

In the first set for the most part she was in control a few lapses her and there but mainly in control consistency was much better. The match really turned in the ninth game with Martic serving Jelena played some good tennis to secure two break points but lost them again with a couple of bad returns she also had a third break point but lost the game.
I think the loss of those break points caused her to lose focus and concentration and she lost the set when she served consecutive double faults.

She lost the opening two games of the second set and by the time Jelena had got some focus back she had a mountain to climb. She had her chances to break in the fifth game but some missed short balls cost her.

All in all I saw nothing that can't be improved with more matches, practice and time.

Martic went on to win the tournament, so that says something, too. :)
