It was actually a really fun match, loads of nice rallies both players kept it fairly clean and there were also drop shots, long, volleys, etc so it had everything. Her serve is still as random as ever and she needs to get that under control (shit serve %, no aces, 7 DFs) but all in all solid performance!

Just Do It

21/25 on the net. That was a great match from Jelena and the crowd loved her :worship:

Good to spur some interest for the Australian crowd.

With Rezai possibly on her way out we could see another win next round.

Yay for Jelena winning in a GS again! And that scoreline is very convincing. Great work!

Now where's that Ozdog fool now who kept complaining about wasting WCs on Jelena. Hope he saw Rogowska's performance today too! :lol:

It might have seemed that way, but Zuzana played very good tennis and made no silly errors. Best womens match they showed today, Jelena's groundies were better than any of the other women they televised including Sharapova.

Best tennis from Jelena since Australian Open 2009, but she needs to play like this in smaller tournaments like Brisbane and Sydney too

So Disrespectful
Jan 17th, 2011, 08:06 AM
Huh? What? She won a match? Yay! :yeah:

Huh? She just won a match in Brisbane too.

Anyway, I think she played quite polished tennis. Ondraskova rarely hits errors, so Jelena had to win the match on her own terms. She was great up at the net, her movement wasn't half bad and she didn't hit many double faults in the second set. :D

She was ON FIRE. Hitting winners from all over the court. Best match I've seen Jelena play in a long, long time!

erm I can think of people who would be better than Zuzana. She gets a lot of shots back pretty deep.

erm I can think of people who would be better than Zuzana. She gets a lot of shots back pretty deep.

I was also thinking that during the match, but then I realised that Zuzana hits the ball pretty flat and mid-pace, which is perfect for Jelena to generate more pace. I think she'd do worse against someone as consistent as Ondraskova, but who hits with more topspin.

Well done Jelena.

I'm just happy she hasn't loss 1r in all her tournaments. Now she's reached at least the 2r in 2/3 of them.

Wow, DOkic has already split from her coach. Happened just before AO started.

Q. Can you say what's happened with the coach? There's some suggestion you split.

JELENA DOKIC: Yeah, we split a couple days ago, right before the Australian Open. Nothing special. No hard feelings, you know. There are certain people that suit you for your game and for your personality. This was just not one of them. This is the first time we traveled together, so it was all kind of a test period anyway.

Yeah, I feel like, you know, he didn't suit the type of tennis that I wanted to play. You know, just one of those people. Maybe he's good for somebody else, but I didn't feel that click, basically. That's it, you know, nothing else.

Yeah, that was my feeling inside. I went by my instinct. I think I made the right choice.

Q. Have you made any decisions on who you might lean on for this tournament?

JELENA DOKIC: I'm working with Tennis Australia, actually with Louise Pleming. She's helping me out. I'm playing doubles with Sally. She's working with Sally, and that's why we thought it would be best. She's just helping me with my warmups and hits until I get through this tournament.

Q. Tough to make a decision so close to a major with so much on the line?

JELENA DOKIC: Yeah, it is. I made the decision three days ago, so, yeah, it was tough. But, you know, I felt like even in the playoff and Brisbane and Sydney, I didn't feel good, didn't play the way I wanted to play. We just had different opinions on what I should do.

I think it's tough. I do want to listen to the coach, but at the same time, I'm also not 15 years old. So I have some experience and I know what I want to do. I just want to focus on that and make that better.

But, yeah, like I said, you know, you just don't click with certain people and that's it. It was a hard decision, but I had to do it.

Winnable (but still tough ;)) next match against Strycova
Similar style of play to Zuzana, a clay courter and counter puncher .....Jelena seems to do better against players who give her more time to set up her shots:lick:

Well Jelena won a round :hearts: I'm very happy for her, and I guess this justifies her wildcard. I'm still not at all convinced, but most of the other wildcards have been embarrassing so what can you do. Maybe she can beat Barbora though :).
