Stajus def. Jelena Jankovic 7-6 (5) 6-4
Close match, dominated by serves (17 aces to 20
)...I hit some net cords in the TB, 1 for a winner and 1 that went over with speed but perhaps that decided the 1st set. In the 2nd set I started great on his serve with 0-40, at 15-40 reached the net and had such a simple situation...somehow I managed to mess it up (noob) and he passed me with a forehand DTL..Then he reached deuce, but I hit 2 nice winners in a row for the break...Afterwards, I had a 40-15 in the next game but he got to a BP with AD - I saved his only BP of the match though. We held serves easily until 5-3* where he hit 3 small outs in a row to give me a MP at 40-30* but he saved it with some winners and big serves. Finally, I closed out with a service game to 15. Nice to win again vs him after Wimbledon 2010, I think I served great today which was the key.
GG and GL in the future.
Addition: I guessed your serve maybe 3-4 times, and that was mostly when you had 40-0 and I didn't care xd I didn't guess any serves in the game where I broke you
For once I correctly "anticipated" a lot of your putaways like you always do to me ^^
Anyways, GL next time.
