Jarka come on Davis can be over powered just be focused and stop hitting those easy returns out

You have no agency in this match. You might start to wonder if you have free will. Perhaps solipsism is true after all - is it Jankovic's world and you're simply allowed to live exist in it? It's basically existential waterboarding.
Of course her comeback is still a work in progress, so we probably shouldn't expect too much too soon.
I still feel that the early signs are positive. Anything like peak Jarka would have been too much for Davis, but at the same time, Lauren seems to have lifted her game significantly of late, so I wouldn't call this a bad loss by any means.
