This is Jankovic's quarter to win or lose. A path to the semifinals without having to face a single top 15 player is about as good as it's getting for anyone.

Kaia:sad: Still a nice tournament for her. Back in the top 100 with only 12 points to defend for the rest of the year.

I actually really enjoyed that match. Given the weather and all of the interruptions, it was surprisingly nice quality.

Expected tough match. Kanepi was in good form before that match. Well done, Jelena.

Thank God! :lol: JJ was awesome in the first set and then seemed to lose concentration. The rain delay probably saved her today!

So glad Jelena got through, hopefully can rest up for the next match. As for Kaia, that is an interesting comeback. I can't see why she wouldn't be top 30 again if she keeps this form up.

too bad. i thought when kaia broke back in the third that she had a good shot, but...

it's really really a tough match though
but i think JJ needs this, cos if you come back when you almost die, good thing will happen to you !

keep fighting,JJ

Good quality match, but Jelena should have never allowed Kaia to find her rhythm. Once she did she really played awesome tennis and Jelena needed to fight it out.

Keep going, Jelena! :hearts:

I doubted too. But then she hit a big serve and followed it up with a forehand putaway.
That's pressure tennis played perfectly from a top 5 player. The draw is even more wide open now for Jankovic with Radwanska's loss.

Good luck to JJ for the next rounds.

jankovic's serve Has improved termendously!

i agree after AO she is serving really nice. Of course not always :lol: but her serve is helping her to make free points. If you look 2007 and last few months is a totally different story;)

jankovic's serve Has improved termendously!

She is consistenly serving in the 170s kmh and serving a few aces, service winners, and plenty of solid serves that give her an edge in the rallies. It's a good sign for the rest of the tournament. Her second serve, however, was sitting up a bit. Kanepi has a great return of serve, especially off the forehand.

Tricky match, well done to JJ for closing it out. :) Heavy conditions, combined with Kanepi's tremendous hitting and a slightly erratic JJ made this an entertaining tussle. Loving JJ's improved first serve, it's actually becoming almost a weapon! And she looked gorgeous. :hearts:

I'm kind of glad she got a really tough match under her belt. With her section of the draw falling apart, if she makes the SFs against Serena/Henin/Maria/Stosur its good to have played some pressure games already.

Oh, this was so easy and effortless from JJ :worship:

If she keeps like this I hope she'll be hungry for bagels against A-Bond in next round :rolleyes:

Woman, are you nuts?!!! :weirdo: Just play aggressive like today in first set and don't resort to pushing and puffballs :shout:

Loved those aces and service winners, though :drool:

I kind of wanted Kaia to win that and get a big breakthrough here in Paris but RG needs Jankovic to do well here. Just think if the 2nd quarter completely fell apart :eek:

Kaia should be able to get back on track now. Her game depends on confidence.

Josh.
May 28th, 2010, 08:48 AM
Just watched this match on reply. Kaia was playing well and if she had another draw she could have done some damage. If she keeps this level of play up she will be back inside the top 30 in no time.
