Jankovic played like the 2010 mug. Horrible pushing. No depth, no power and no placement. Her forehand "down the line" is a total disaster. I donīt know how people only hate on Wozniackiīs forehand. Jankovicīs is at least as bad.

Given time Petkovic can hit some good ball and she has the patience to wait for that ball. She knows pushers like Wozniacki and Jankovic canīt hurt her. Well done.

It's not even amusing anymore, Jelena. I've never seen this many netted points in a match, and I've never seen a player decide to practice shots she can't play in the middle of a Miami QF match.
Jelena... you are even worse than Wozniacki and I don't love you any more. There.

OneSlamWonder
Mar 29th, 2011, 11:09 PM
Jelena wtf, really. It's not like you never saved your ass. Well this time two match points were given. Gz to Petko, she should really thank the rain.

ANYWAY, like I said before, didn't expect much from Jelena here. Now rest and really really dominate the clay.

Beny
Mar 29th, 2011, 11:09 PM
Jankovicīs forehand is beyond pathetic. Sometimes itīs worse than the worst of Caroīs forehand and that is something!

Jankovic couldnt step it up when it most mattered. She really is a pusher. Players like Schiavone, S.Williams, Stosur and lot others go for the tough shot it takes to turn things around. But Jankovic, Wozniacki just wait for the error..

Andrea is really breathing some necessary life in the tour right now. At least for me.

She is spunky, has a good attitude, and a big game. But best of all, she's one of the only players that looks to be having fun any more.

Credit to Andrea, a great win :worship: :banana:

The possibility of Maria, Andrea, and Vika in the semis is fantastic. :banana:

Great tourney for Andrea!!

I'm still a little gutted from Caroline's loss yesterday but it's great to see Andrea keep winning. It's always a little disappointing when a player scores an upset and then loses in the next round, glad to see that she avoided that. Unexpected but well done to her.

I expect Jelena to keep improving and she should do even better on clay.

Still great tournament for Petkorazzi, despite some pushing there I'm still impressed.Can't really figure it out whether she has chances for the final.But if she plays like this ... :lick:

Jelenas mentally just brought down her whole game. Too negative. She basically chucked away that second set. Shame, considering she can work a point so well and execute when needed only if her heads clear.

Petkovic went for her shots at the end, and deserved that third set.

Sometimes yes , sometimes no.

But today it seemed so.


She really likes the explosiveness, the brave part, the stupid shrieks Ana sometimes makes after winning an important point.
Jankovic was so dull. There was no sign she was determined to fight till death to win the match. Where is the fighting spirit?

Patrick345
Mar 29th, 2011, 11:21 PM
Petkovic just plays smart. Every time she was in trouble on her forehand side, from a good backhand down the line or cross court forehand from Jankovic, she would simply play the ball to Jankovicīs forehand. She exposed her own backhand side knowing that Jankovic always plays a forehand down the middle (itīs not even the line) with no power on it. The ball also spins toward the middle of the court making it easy for Petkovic to run it down comfortably and reset the point till she gets her own opportunity to attack. Itīs a credit to jankovic that she made it as far as she has with only two and a half strokes. :tape:

Jelena's shots are messy and technically awkward.

I'm afraid she will never be consistent and much futile again.

Don't make us think your days are gone.
And Andrea's improved so much, never seen her play this consistent and solid. Jelena is just afraid to hit a ball. She's always like: "What if I lose..." in her head.

This is such a thrill for me. Have been a fan of Andrea for awhile now, even before this latest surge. And how cool is it that I got to sit/converse with Team Petkovic last Thursday when I was at the tourney (my only one day). After Andrea beat Hampton, got to meet and get a pic with her. So extra sweet that she's doing so fantastically in this tourney.

BTW, I also talked to Rittner who was at that match,(she's Fed Cup coach for those that don't know). She's pretty nice, but the coach Popovic (sp?) is really a character. Very funny guy. Side note: I had a spray bottle fan with me and he kept taking off his hat so I could spray is head. :p

Anyway, am so jazzed. Since Elena D retired, I've been wondering who'd become my new fave. I know now. :)

Well, Jelena was Jelena just in 1st set and in half third.
Second set was crap, Jelena made some mistakes that are unforgivable.
In third she lost so many chances, and in general she played bad at important points.

Petkovic had more power, more will, and Jelena was screaming,,nemam snage". Pathetic.
Congrats Andrea, now please beat Maria.

She didn't need to have a plan. Jelena can't play after rain delays.

But congrats to Woz Woz, she's not my no.1 hated player anymore.

jankovic in pushy mode is unbearable. she had huge problems with long balls to her forhand, always looping them back.

Petkorazzi is such a character. I really like her and her winning spirit. She is so focused when it matters, capable to finish off.

Jelena, pushing will lead you nowhere. She's a shadow of her former self. I won't gloat even if some part of Jelena's fan base deserve just that after some nasty comments in Ana's thread.

Good win for the WTA.

Jankovic was in full on pusher mode in the 3rd set. And it almost worked.

What I was most surprised at was how well Petkovic held up in rallies, against someone as consistent as Jankovic, by the latter stages. Her jerky, awkward strokes usually without fail break down when under the kind of pressure she was mid 3rd set, but on all of the crucial points, she was rock solid, kept good depth and was able to crank up the pace of the rallies when necessary. She didn't completely panic when Jankovic became the human wall either, and was able to step up her game on all of the GPs and BPs against her from 2-4 down.

Jankovic should have really won this. :unsure:

I noticed that Petkovic is really bad with handling sitters. She bombed quite a few of them against Wozniacki and the same occured in this match, is she just THAT eager? :lol:

,,Andrea played very well, she took her opportunity and was clearly on a high after beating Caroline Wozniacki in the previous round. She is famous for doing the Petko dance after her matches, but I didn’t see if she did it this time. It was tough to play against her because she’s a great girl and we speak the same language. We hugged at the end and congratulated each other on the battle. We were all sweaty and soaking wet like we had taken a shower, so that was kind of disgusting."

I really love watching Andrea play. I loved how she handled match point, she went for it! It was so refreshing, rather than seeing someone get the ball back 30 times waiting on an error from their opponent. She is exciting to watch, much needed on the tour!

Petko is great fun to watch. She was a bit lucky today because JJ just lost focus in the second set but by the end Petko was playing high quality tennis and deserved the win. Hope she can go all the way.
