Re: Jelena Jankovic Cheering Thread - 2014 Season - Volume 16
The thing that gets me is that JJ didn't even need to defend all her SF points to stay in a comfortable spot. I reckon a 4th round showing coupled with her QF last week would have kept her sitting pretty. And the draw was not that bad at all. She's never going to get a better draw like that at these 5th slam events. A bunch of up and comers who spray unforced errors this way and that until Caroline or Sloane, whom JJ was the favorite in either match up.
Oh well. She surely won't drop out of the top 10 with Charleston and Beijing still on her scorecard.
I actually wish I could have seen the match to know exactly what it was Lepchenko did or didn't do to fight back from 1-5. Maybe at that point JJ thought she'd be given the match.. if you go to WTATENNIS.com the headline right now is "Lepchenko score biggest win of her career."
