'Cause it makes me that much stronger...Makes me work a little bit harder...
Fatigue, illness, injury, bad patch--whatever it is, it rarely keeps Jelena Jankovic from being a fighter! Tonight was no exception. Down 1-5 in the third set against Sofia Arvidsson, Jankovic broke her opponent twice to get to 5-all. Then it went to 6-all, and Jankovic found herself down 3-6 in the tiebreak.
She then saved five match points, and at 9-10, broke Arvidsson, and won the match on her second match point.
Credit to Arvidsson, who is having an excellent 2008 season, kind of out of nowhere.
Jankovic def. Arvidsson, 6-7, 6-2, 7-6
Tennis Channel was supposed to have shown tennis for five hours tonight, but all they showed was the "live" Federer-Monfils match, and even that was a somewhat delayed broadcast.
