Couldn't convert on her first 2 match points in the second set at *5-3.

Then I'm not sure exactly what happened, but this is how I saw it: At 6-3 5-4 down, Rodionova was annoyed at Jarmila for not double-checking a mark (which was clearly out anyway), so Jarmila stated, "I check whenever it's questioned." At this point the initially indifferent crowd began supporting Jarmila. Rodionova complained again in the third set after the umpire confirmed an in call that went against her, telling him that he "didn't even check the mark", when he obviously did.

After failing to close things out in the second set, and in the middle of that massive *4-2 game in the third, I didn't think Jarmila would be able to hold it together. So happy she did though! Well done Jarka, first 4th round for her at any slam. :hearts:

So scared she'd choke it away.

Great job Jarka, good luck next round! Defended last years points and will get a rankings boost!

She plays amazing. :speakles: :inlove: How is she still ranked outside top100? Should've won in two though. Poor Rodionova didn't play bad at all, too, just a bit unlucky on the crucial points.... Great match with a lot of entertaining, smart rallies.

Well done Jarmilla. I thought it was all over at 63 63 i'm sure scoreboard changed to 63 63 and then suddenly its was 63 54.

Yes! 4th round is a great result and well done for keeping it together after the second set collapse. Back into the top 100 now and a good shot for a QF! She must be stoked :D

Nastia wasted way too many chances in last set and made so many errors. Golden opportunity missed.

Well done to Groth though she fought well in the 3rd set!

So glad Jarka managed to pull through... even on a DF. Anyway, it was the only way she was going to close it out after fcuking up so many chances.
Good luck in 4th round! :yeah:

Now she basically secured herself a place inside Top 100 till the end of the season :yeah:
Hopefully this will be a real breakthrough for her and a good sign for the grass season as grass is her best surface :D

Well, the nicer one won, congrats :)

If they are fake, then half my friends are fake too. Australia is full of naturalised citizens.

Nasty was really quite nasty :lol: racquet abuse, arguments with umpire and opponent... all the usual behaviour out in full force.

Congrats Jarka - deserved it!

Also, changing her racquet mid-game twice without a quick apology, making her opponent wait after every sit-down and giving a bitch handshake. :D

Everyone who knows how to say 'fair dinkum'! :lol:

Seriously, my point is just that I consider anyone who see themselves as Aussie an Aussie - which includes Jarka and Nastya.

So happy for Jarmila!!! :worship: :bounce: :cheers: She is such a nice person! :) 4th round of a Slam is a great result and she has a chance to advance to QFs... :)

I saw her in Estoril Open against Barrois and Parra and she played damned good almost all the matches but then she tanked when she was serving for match... Today I only saw the 3rd set but I was extremly happy to know that she was still to get over that choke in 2nd set and won the match...

Keep going Jarka :kiss:
