Jelena Jankovic Upsets Defending Champion Petra Kvitova at Wimbledon

Jelena Jankovic

Jelena Jankovic

 

(July 4, 2015) Former No. 1, 28th seed Jelena Jankovic pulled off the biggest upset of the Wimbledon fortnight on the Ladies’ side when she defeated No. 2 and defending champion Petra Kvitova 3-6, 7-5, 6-4.

The Czech looked to be confidently cruising past the Serbian, with a 6-3, 4-2 lead, but Jankovic turned the match around from that point onward.

“Playing on grass is very difficult for me. It does not come natural,” Jankovic said. “I just tried to stay one point at a time, just hang in there, stay positive and fight, and I made it. But playing on Centre Court against the defending champion was just unbelievable. I’m really really happy to win this match!”

“I’m overwhelmed. I’m so excited. My heart is still pumping,” Jankovic said after the match.

“It didn’t matter how badly I was playing or what was happening out there, I really just tried to stay one point at a time and fight, and when I won that second set I knew I just had to keep going out there.

“When I won, I couldn’t believe what just happened. I lost to Petra the last time we played in Rome, and I know she plays amazing here. But that’s what this sport is all about. It’s such a great excitement for me – I’m so glad I was able to win and this gives me a lot of confidence the rest of the tournament.”

For Kvitova who also won Wimbledon in 2011, this was her earliest exit from the All-England Club since 2009.

“I’m not really sure what happened out there,” Kvitova said in press. “Suddenly I felt like she’s coming back, playing a little bit aggressive.

“Suddenly from my side, I didn’t have answer for it. My serve didn’t help me at all this time, as well. I was really struggling with each shot which I played.”

“But I don’t think that I lost today because I was defending champion from last year,” Kvitova said.  “I don’t think is really the thing why.

“I think that she really played a good match.  Looked a little bit on the other side when I played Venus last year, when I was the worst player in the first two sets, then I won.  This time just turn the other side for her.”

“Here I am in the fourth round, in the second week of Wimbledon,” Jankovic said.  “I just beat a defending champion.  I mean, it’s unbelievable.  You know, I don’t think I can ask for more.  I hope to keep going.”

“I think I always believe in myself, no matter what.  Like I said, if I’m healthy, if I can put that work in on a daily basis and work hard, improve.

“You know, to be honest, right now I’m not at the level I want to be at. First of all, physically I have to get a lot stronger a lot faster.  As I said before, getting injured, not being able to go to the gym, to spend some time on the practice court.  I will need some time to get to the form, to the level I want to be at, and where I can be. That’s what will satisfy my, you know, needs and wishes.

“So we’ll see.  I always think I can do it.  I’m not old. I’m still young at heart.  I look pretty good, so why not (laughter)?  I mean, give me a break, guys.  What’s old?”

“I’m very determined.  Like I said, I want to get, you know, to where I think I belong.  I’ve done it in the past.  I’ve been many years in the top 10, I’ve been No. 1 in the world, I’ve played against all these players.

“Like I said, just if I’m able to work hard and believe in myself, hopefully my time will come again.”

Other winners on the Ladies’ side included fifth seed Caroline Wozniacki over Camila Giorgi 6-2, 6-2, No. 20 Garbine Muguruza dismissed 2012 semifinalist Angelique Kerber 7-6 (12), 1-6, 6-2, No. 13 Agnieszka Radwanska, No. 15 Timea Bacsinszky, No. 21 Madison Keys, Olga Govortsova and Monica Niculescu also advanced.

Seven-time Wimbledon winner Roger Federer dropped a set to advance to the round of 16 beating hard-hitting Sam Groth 6-4, 6-4, 6-7 (5), 6-2.

Groth hit the second fastest serve in Wimbledon history – 147 mph.

No. 3 Andy Murray beat No. 25 Andreas Seppi of Italy 6-2, 6-2, 1-6, 6-1.  Seppi received a visit from a trainer to work on his lower right leg, and won the next six game. Murray also received a medical time out for a stiff right shoulder after trailing 1-0 in the fourth set, and then took next six game to win the match.

Dustin Brown, the qualifier who upset Rafael Nadal, lost his very next match to 22nd seed Viktor Troicki 6-4, 7-6 (3), 4-6, 6-3.

“Obviously having the pleasure and being able to play on Centre Court and then to play a match like that (on Thursday), doesn’t make a difference if I lost today or not, no one will ever be able to take that away from me,” said Brown.

“I think I played well and I wouldn’t compare it to any other matches.  That’s what I said after winning against (Rendy) Lu, and Rafa (Nadal), it’s always a totally different match.  I’m happy with my tournament.  When I came to quallies, someone would have said sign here for beating Rafa, making second round and qualifying, I would have signed that paper.”

Completing a match held over from Friday at 10-10 in the fifth due to darkness, Marin Cilic bested John Isner 7-6 (4), 6-7 (6), 6-4, 6-7 (4), 12-10

Also Saturday, Wimbledon’s marathon man fell short this time. John Isner, the American who won the longest tennis match in history in 2010, lost 12-10 in the fifth set to U.S. Open champion Marin Cilic. The Croat beat Isner 7-6 (4), 6-7 (6), 6-4, 6-7 (4), 12-10 in a match that resumed Saturday at 10-10.

“Marathon man” Isner defeated Nicolas Mahut 70-68 in the fifth set at Wimbledon in 2010, the longest match in tennis history.

No. 12 seed Gilles Simon defeated French countryman No. 18 seed Gael Monfils in five sets, in a match which had to be moved from
Court 1  when darkness came early in the fourth set, and completed under the roof of Centre Court.

Other men moving in to the fourth round: Vasek Pospisil, No. 23 Ivo Karlovic and No. 20 Roberto Bautista Agut.

Serena Williams Survives Heather Watson, Will Face Sister Venus in Wimbledon Fourth Round

(July 3, 2015) Serena Williams was just two points away from ending a bid for her fourth straight major title and the third leg of the Grand Slam. Britain’s No. 1 player and world No. 59, Heather Watson almost stood in the way of halting potential history on Friday at Wimbledon.

This was Williams’ 24th straight match-win at a major.

Williams recovered from two breaks down in the third set to stop Watson 6-2, 4-6, 7-5 to advance to the round of 16, where her sister Venus will be waiting.

The older Williams defeated Aleksandra Krunic 6-3, 6-2. This will be the 26th time the sisters have played each other – Serena leads Venus 14-11. “We’ve been facing each other a long time,” Venus said.

“I honestly didn’t think I was going to win,” said the 20-time major champion. “How I pulled through, I really don’t know.”

“She just did everything so well. I wasn’t able to keep up. You know, sometimes you just don’t have your day,” Serena said about her opponent, who served for the match at 5-4 in the third set. “I thought maybe today just wasn’t my day.”

“I was two points away from winning that match, so I’m pretty disappointed,” Watson said to media. “But, I mean, the atmosphere on that court was amazing. I think it really helped me and pushed me. I just wish I could have closed it out at the end.

“I wouldn’t call losing the greatest day of my career. It’s very positive that I put myself in this position. I mean, I could have been out first round in this tournament.  I was match points down. I gave myself the opportunity to play against the best player in the world.

“I also gave myself the opportunity to beat her. I didn’t take it this time. But I’m really glad I was in that situation because I can learn from it and do better next time.”

Serena told the BBC: “I’ve had some tough losses here, but that was probably my toughest match here, playing Heather in front of her home crowd. She played unbelievable. I think she should have won the match at this point. She was up two breaks, she really gave it her all.”

Dustin Brown Upsets Rafael Nadal in Second Round of Wimbledon

(July 2, 2015) Germany’s Dustin Brown had never been on Wimbledon’s famed Centre Court until Thursday and made the most of his opportunity when he upset two-time Wimbledon champion and 10th seed Rafael Nadal 7-5, 3-6, 6-4, 6-4 to reach the third round of Wimbledon.

“I’m playing the first time on Centre Court,” Brown said. “It was awkward actually, I thought I was going to freak out a little bit.”

The 102nd ranked Brown, who had to qualify to play at the All-England Club, played the match of his life at a major gave Wimbledon the biggest shock of the tournament so far. Brown who was born in Germany to a German mother and Jamaican father, used his serve-and volley game to defeat a seed at a major for the first time in his career. He won 71 points serve-and-volley points, 49 points and the net and hit 58 winners.

Brown is now 2-0 against Nadal. The German defeated Nadal at a grass-court event at Halle last year 6-4, 6-1.

“I knew what the plan was because I played against him in Halle before,” Brown said. “Obviously he’s a great tennis player. Knowing that the grass might be a little slower than in Halle, obviously doing it over best‑of‑five sets is a different situation than doing it only best‑of‑three.”

“Well, the point is whatever I do is to take him out of his comfort zone.  If I would stay in the back and rally with him left, right, that would not be a very good match for me.  I know that.  Obviously I try to play my game.”

This was the first time that Spaniard has ever lost to a qualifier at a major. This is the fourth straight year that the 14-time major winner has fallen to a player ranked 100 or lower in the early rounds of Wimbledon – 2012 to No. 100 Lukas Rosol in the second round, 2013 to No. 135 Steve Darcis and 2014 to No 144 Nick Kyrgios.

“I cannot describe relationship with grass,” Nadal said in his post-match news conference.  “You know, when you love one thing, and even last couple of years I didn’t have the best relationship possible with them, going to be in my heart and in my memories forever the 2008 final.  That was probably one of the most important moments of my career, and was here, no?

“You know, at the end of the day, today I lost.  Don’t forget I played five finals here.  I don’t know how many players did that.”

“With my game, it makes him not play his game at all,” Brown said after the match. “He gets two balls, or he doesn’t get any balls, and he doesn’t get in a rhythm.”

“Being on grass, being with him on the court and having won the last match, it made me feel more comfortable,” Brown added. “It was easy for me to play my game against someone like him, because I had nothing to lose.”

“Obviously today is a bad moment for me,” Nadal said in press. “I need to accept. This kind of things, they happen. … It’s a sad moment for me, but life continues. My career too. I have to keep going, working more than ever.”

“Losing in Roland Garros, going straight to Stuttgart and Queen’s, then came here very early to prepare the tournament,” Nadal said.  “So I lost.  Sad today for that, obviously.

“But end of the day, that’s sport.  Good moments, bad moments.  Obviously today is a bad moment for me.  Just I need to accept these kind of things that can happen.  I did all my career.

“Keep going.  You know, it’s not the end.  Is a sad moment for me, as I said before.  But life continues.  My career, too.  I have to keep going and working more than ever to try to change that dynamic.”

“On this surface, when I go out there, obviously I’m confident that I can play my game,” Brown explained.  “But then I said, again, I lost the match against (Jerzy) Janowicz who started serving too good. I lost against Kei (Nishikori).  Obviously I am not unbeatable on this surface, but it comes more natural playing on this, especially with my type of game.

“Yeah, what other players think, no one has said anything to me obviously, but I know that I can play really well on this.  I’m looking forward to the next match.”

The 30-year-old Brown will play Viktor Troicki, the No. 22 seed next for a place in the fourth round.

Federer, Murray and Kvitova Have Easy Wins to Move into Third Round at Wimbledon

 

(July 2, 2015) Roger Federer won his 75th match at Wimbledon while Andy Murray also won in straight sets to advance to the third round of Wimbledon on Thursday.

Roger Federer going for an eighth title at the All-England Club, defeated American Sam Querrey 6-4, 6-2, 6-2. The Swiss is second behind Jimmy Connors (84) for most wins at Wimbledon in the Open Era.

The highlight of the match came when Federer hit a “tweener” lob over Querrey’s head leading 4-2 in the second set.

“It’s rare that it happens, so when you get them you’ve got to pull it off,” Federer said.

“It all happens very quickly.  I can’t put it on super slow and go, All right, what’s best?  ‘Cause I guess so many things shoot through your mind like, Well, what’s the score?  Is it 30‑Love?  Is it Love‑30?  Love‑30, I wouldn’t have hit a shot like that, no chance.  I probably would have adjusted, changed my grip and tried to hit a normal forehand or gone around and hit a normal backhand.

 

“What the situation was, I had the grip in hand.  It was an open grip, you know, one for a slice I would think, or one you scoop it.  But then I was like I feel better almost shuffling my feet and giving myself, with the right grip, without changing that anymore, to hitting a lob.

 

“Easiest way for me was somehow through the legs rather than coming to a complete standstill and then hitting a lob, which he would have seen where it was going to go.  Through the legs, you’re not sure if it’s going to come short or high.  I got lucky.  I hit it perfect.

 

“Yeah, I felt like there was a chance, legitimate chance, to win the point.  And it was fun.  It just happened to be the right thing.  I picked the right side.  Like I said, I got lucky also to be there.”

 

Third seed Murray is making a bid for his second Wimbledon title made easy work of Robin Haase 6-1, 6-1, 6-4,.

 

Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Cornwall was given one of Murray’s wristbands at the end of the by Richard Lewis, the chief executive officer of The Championships who caught the wrists bands.

 

“I heard that she was coming today,” Murray said.  “I saw her briefly after the match.

 

“But the wristband actually hit the chairman of Wimbledon.  He was there with her.  Normally you see who catches it.  Then the Duchess opened up her bag and my wristband was in there, so he obviously had given it to her.”

 

Another former champion had an easy day on Thursday and that was defending champion Petra Kvitova. She dismantled Kurumi Nara of Japan 6-2, 6-0. The world No. 2 has dropped only three games in the tournament.

 

“It wasn’t really easy,” Kvitova said.  “I mean, of course, the score look very easy.  But few games which we play was really close.

 

“I’m just glad that I won.  That’s important, you know, counting is the last point.  I still have a lot of space where I can improve for the next match. That’s a good sign, as well.

 

“Of course, the next match will be tough again, and tougher and tougher, if I’m going to stay in the tournament.  I have to be prepared for everything.”

 

There were upsets on the Ladies’ side of the draw on day four of Wimbledon. Eighth seed Ekaterina Makarova lost to Magdalena Rybarikova, 6-2, 7-5, Svetlana Kuznetsova lost 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 to Kristyna Pliskova,  No.17 seed Elina Svitolina fell to Casey Dellacqua, 7-6(3), 6-3,  and No.25 seed Alizé Cornet was osted by Belarusian qualifier Olga Govortsova, 7-6(6), 2-6, 6-1.

Seeded winners on the day included: No.5 seed Caroline Wozniacki, No.10 seed Angelique Kerber, No.13 seed Agnieszka Radwanska, No.15 seed Timea Bacsinszky, No.18 seed Sabine Lisicki, No.20 seed Garbiñe Muguruza, No.21 seed Madison Keys, No.28 seed Jelena Jankovic and No.31 seed Camila Giorgi.

Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams Beat Opponents and the Heat to Advance at Wimbledon

(July 1, 2015) Top seeds Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams beat their respective opponents as well as the record-setting heat at Wimbledon on Wednesday.

Djokovic defeated Jarkko Nieminen 6-4, 6-2, 6-3 to reach the third round. The Finn, Nieminen is retiring at the end of the year, so this was his final match at Wimbledon.

“He’s been around for so many years,” Djokovic said. “A very, very nice guy, one of the nicest guys off the court.”

“I would rate probably around 7 or 8,” the Serb said about his play on court.  “I think very solid performance.  I’ve done just enough to win in straight sets.

“He started off very well, very aggressive, winners in the first couple games. Well, I managed to stay calm and, you know, believe I can come back.  That’s what I’ve done.

“I think the crucial turning point was the 10th game of the first set when I won the set and I started playing more freely.

“You know, I thought I had the match under control and everything was fine.

Serena Williams beat Timea Babos 6-4, 6-1 for her 23rd straight Grand Slam match win.

“I hope I’m not playing my best, Williams said. “I have a lot of room to improve.”

She’ll take on Britain’s top player Heather Watson in the third round.

“Serena’s a great player,” Watson said. “She’s an amazing athlete, a great champion.  She’s always the one to watch.  She’s always the favorite for every tournament she plays.

“So I think she’s the one to beat in tournaments like this.  She’s probably the toughest opponent.”

“I’ve seen her around the locker room, “Williams said. “She’s always smiling, she seems to be so super sweet”

“I know Venus has played her before. I’ve watched that match a few times. I feel like she does really well on grass – she’s played well in Eastbourne. And she had a really good win today.

“I know it’s not going to be easy for me. She has nothing to lose. She’s going forward.”

“I’ve been used to playing against a lot of local people. It doesn’t matter what country it’s in. Hopefully that experience will help me a little bit. But the home court will probably help her a little bit.”

Sister Venus won her 75 match at Wimbledon with a 7-6(5), 6-4 victory over Yulia Putintseva. The 16th seed stands alone at third on the list behind Martina Navratilova at 120 and Chris Evert at 96. Steffi Graf and Serena Williams have 74 wins.

It was a record setting day of high temperatures at the All- England Club with the temperature reaching 96.26 degrees Fahrenheit, the warmest temperature ever recording during a Wimbledon fortnight. The heat caused havoc for ball people, fans and players alike. Players used towels during changeovers.

A ballboy collapsed, Bernard Tomic needed treatment and some fans needed treatment for heat-related illnesses.

“I was very dizzy out there,” Tomic said. “I didn’t sleep well yesterday and the day before.  Probably getting three or four hours of sleep.  I was fatigued and starting to get dizzy out there with the heat hitting me.

“It was tough, so I had to slow things down. I had to catch my breath.”

High seeds who were ousted on Wednesday included fifth seed Kei Nishikori who withdrew from the tournament with a left calf injury and No. 7 Ana Ivanovic who lost to U.S. qualifier, 158th-ranked Bethanie Mattek-Sands 6-3, 6-4.

For Nishikori it was an injury from when he competed in Halle two weeks ago, “Got better before the first match, you know, last week,” he said. I thought it was really going to be okay.  But last match in fifth set I was hurting too much.”

“I try this two days, and warmup today.  But it was hurting, you know, just walking and running, so I decide not to play today.”

Nishikori said it was very disappointing, “Especially it’s Grand Slam.  I thought I was playing well on grass.  So very unfortunate to lose this chance.

“But, you know, I try to keep it up.  Hopefully I can do well in the U.S. series.

2004 champion Maria Sharapova defeated Dutch qualifier Richel Hogenkamp 6-3, 6-1.

Asked about how she held up in the heat, she said: “It’s much warmer in my hometown of Long Boat Key, Florida.  There’s some cloud coverage.  I think I’ve trained quite long in the heat over there.

“I think just the preparation of understanding it’s going to be warm, not going for too much because you want to make the points quicker than normal because of the heat, just being a little bit smarter out there is the most important.”

Reigning French Open champion and No. 4 Stan Wawrinka defeated Victor Estrella Burgos 6-3, 6-4, 7-5.

In the battle royaleof the day on the men’s side, U. S. Open champion and No. 9 Marin Cilic defeated No 90 Ricardas Berankis 6-3, 4-6, 7-6 (6), 4-6, 7-5.

“I would say that the match was very, very high quality match,” Cilic said.  “I think Ricardas was playing extremely well. Even after I broke him in the first set, I think he was playing really, really good until the end of the match, and there was, of course, very difficult to find some openings.

“I’m, you know, just really glad that I won and that the most positive things from today are that I was serving really, really well and, you know, I was staying mentally in the match.

“I saved a couple of break points end of the fifth, and, you know, just I think nerves got to Ricardas at the end, and that, I think, decided a little bit.”

In a battle of tall men, Cilic plays 17th seed John Isner next.

“We have played several times,” said the Croatian. “I think the only time we have played at the Grand Slam was in Australia.  It was very long match.

“With John, it’s always difficult, you know, couple balls are going to decide.  And especially here on grass, I don’t think there will be too much rallies, and, you know, it’s gonna be important who has more concentration and who’s delivering, you know, better shots at critical moments.”
