Is it just me or do you guys also think he was hitting with more topspin on her groundies and was in general not ball bashing as much???
I don't know about the topspin, but she wasn't "ballbashing" (for once). She was building her points in a nice way, choosing the best choice of play available. At least at the end of the match, since I didn't see most of the 3 sets.
Jarka I love you!! Please keep this up So happy she has gone back to Wilson as well, such a better fit for her game!
She exchanged whatever control she had in her Wilson for extra power in the Babolat that not only did she not need but meant age couldn't make a ball
If Maria is off and Jarka is on, I think he is finally in the state of mind to finish off the match he almost did at US Open 2010
Jarmila This is just great, I'm so happy! This must mean so much to her! Really hope that things are going upwards from here. Looking forward to 2R vs. Sharapova
Too bad they had to play each other in 1R as I like Vinci as well, but Jarmila really needed this one much more.
