I must say that I am surprised to see Jarka get the nod over Jelena. She must have smartened up her play and her attitude considerably.
I think Jarka probably has the better game on clay. And she is still the higher ranked player, so it would have been more of a slap in the face for her if they had gone with Jelena. But if she loses I think they'll put Jelena in for the reverse singles though.
That's it. I'm going to go and do something useful instead of watching livescores of this shitfest...
Well that seems to have done the trick, Sam finally holds serve (to love no less) after being broken 3 times in a row. Now all she needs is another break and she can close it out in 2. That's not asking too much is it?
