Yes it is nice to see a new winner and someone not so well known.
i would have prefered Ivanovic to win the title though, she would have been back in the top 30, and out of the way of the huge players in the RG draw. Now if Ivanovic does not beat Jankovic in Madrid, then I doubt she will be back in the top 30, meaning the FO will be dangerous for her to come across a high ranked player, but also a high ranked player who is a baseline hitter, because Ivanovic would probably win the match if she played like she did in Rome in the earlier rounds.
MJMS's game was annoying, yes. I mean she had a nice game, but the dropshots were SICK! How she did them was beyond me, I was shocked everytime because her opponents rarely saw them coming, and Jankovic and Ivanovic struggled to get near them. Jankovic is quick and nimble and Ivanovic has a big stride.
I just hope Ivanovic, Peng, Zheng, Li, Cirstea and the British girls don't come across her at the FO.
