“To be honest, she has almost the game of a man,” Jankovic describe Stosur.
“When I look at how the men play, she has a very good kick (serve), which not many women have. It’s very heavy spin.
This is Stosur first grand slam singles final.
First set then it was over . . .
“And for 10 seconds, many seconds, I didn’t realize. Then when she shook my hand I knew it was finished,” she added. “Then my mind realised where I was.”
Francesca Schiavone became the first Italian woman ever to reach a Grand Slam final by defeating Elena Dementieva in the semi-finals.
“I am not sure if I will be able to play at Wimbledon,” Dementieva told reporters. “I am not going to (the WTA event in) Eastbourne because of the injury.”
“Today it was just a sharp pain. It was a bit too much. I couldn’t really move on the court.”
“It’s very painful to even walk,” she said. “I got it after my second match and I aggravated it.
“But what can I do? Injuries are part of the game and this is how it is. I cannot change anything.”
She first suffered the problem to her left calf in a second-round win over Anabel Medina Garrigues of Spain and tried everything to recover for her meeting with Schiavone.
Hoping for you quick recovery…
