:sad:
Like her or not, it is heartbreaking to see jen lose so many three setters against the top players especially when the games are so close. Come in here to feel for her. Good job Kim but when is it gonna be Jen's day?

I feel for Jen to get back to top form she needs to beat Serena or Venus. For i belive that all those tought matches three set matches with Serena has really dented her confiedents.

I feel SO bad for her. Jen is too talented to lose. Can anyone attribute why the third set was so decisive for Kim?

Was it fitness, errors, Kim playing great?

Jen needs a title before the USO in my book before we can even thibk of her winning Slams again.

When she broke Kim at the beginning of the 2nd set, she shoulda held on. Or when serving a 4-5 in the 2nd, really played her heart out to close it in two.

Oh well, we gota keep supporting her. The rewards will come soon....

I'm a big Clijsters fan, so I'm really happy she won...

The way Capriati played today impressed me quite a lot... Her latest result weren't that great, but if she can hold and raise this level of play a bit, I'm sure she will win many more tournaments...
She's a great and lovely person!
Good luck in San Diego girl!

From what Ive seen of the match I agree.. She still hits juat as hard/harder than some of the top girls.. Its got to break soon. HEY she had been to a final in 4 months, its good to see her back in one, no matter what the result was.......

SJW- exactly, just keep your head up Jen!

Jen still depends on her speed too much, especially in the 3rd set where she just runs everything down and not dictate points. She also needs more variety!!! She was playin Kim with some drops shots early in the match, why not in the 3rd :confused:. Variety I think is KEY...Jen needs to start thinking on the court and not just pound the ball, and retrieve.

My take on the third set..first off Jen was tired..fitness-wise Kim was in better shape. Kim played well in the third set while Jen was a little more up and down..she came out pretty badly in the third and it's awful tough to dig yourself out of 4-0 hole when you're already a little tired. She did pick it up at 4-0 but Kim stayed steady and finished it off.

I too think it's just a matter of time for Jen to win her next title..however she needs to get into more finals first. She says she doesn't think about that fact that it's a final and doesn't put pressure on herself, but when she's getting to finals only once every 4 months or so..you're bound to feel more pressure cause you don't know when your next opportunity will come along to win a title. Anyhoo that's just my 2 cents :p

I think she'll get herself together, don't forget it's the same girl who was completely out for almost 5 years and then managed to conquer the tennis world in no time. She's way to good not win any more titles IMO.

Problem is that Jen´s style of play isn´t effective anymore + I think her fitness level isn´t as high as in the past. She always seems to get tired in the third set, specially against the elite. And her serve is just non-existent!! She always hits TONS of df´s.... I think that the window´s closing for the older class of americans: Monica, Lindsay and Jen. The first two are already battling to many injuries and Jen´s level is no longer enough.
