its really crazy!look at the serve percentage!elena had 81% 1st serves while claudine had only 49%!

1st Serve % 57 of 70 = 81 % 27 of 55 = 49 %

Aces 0 0

Double Faults 2 5

Unforced Errors 25 19

Winning % on 1st Serve 26 of 57 = 46 % 18 of 27 = 67 %

Winning % on 2nd Serve 6 of 13 = 46 % 12 of 28 = 43 %

Winners (Including Service) 11 27

Break Point Conversions 3 of 6 = 50 % 6 of 14 = 43 %

Net Approaches 17 of 29 = 59 % 13 of 15 = 87 %

Total Points Won 57 68

I've never seen Claudine play and it looks like she has an even bigger game than Bovina does. And although Elena looks to have served well, her placements must have been easy for Schaul to exploit.

mind you Elena's first serve lately sits around 120-140km/h thats why she gets a high percentage in.

For someone as big as Elena Bovina is, that's horrible. She should be averaging at least 160. What good is getting 80 percent of your first serves in when they aren't hard enough to break a paper bag? A decent junior player would eat those floaters alive.

I'm so not surprised!

I saw Claudine KILL Perebiynis the other day, this girl is good!!!! She hits the ball so well and has great placement. Oh yes, and she can hit HARD.

Well done Claudine

I dont know whats happening with her, maybe she is working on her placement - then she will return back to power afterwards. Her fastest serve is like 178km - So she can serve up there, mind you I think with her height, if she just went to the gym, she could serve alot higher more consistently.

Justine's fastest serve last week was like 182km or something?! Now that proves to everyone that someone little can serve just as hard, with the right gym workout. Elena can obviously serve at that, soo hopefully she might start to follow Justine very soon.

Elena's serve has not improved from last year. In fact it seems to have weakened! She used to hit around 110 mph. Now its nearer 90. And it is harming her. She won the same percentage of points on both 1st and 2nd serves!

I noticed this too in her first round match. She needs to build that serve, especially as she appears to have lost some weight recently.

Sabine Lisicki, Maria Sharapova, Elena Dementieva,

Victoria Azarenka, Dinara Safina, Maria Kirilenko

Nadia Petrova, Samantha Stosur, Ana Ivanovic.

Yuppers Sam Stosur sent down a 193kh serve in her 3-6 1-6 loss, serve is one thing but you need to be able to follow it up. There is a viral infection at the AO that has hit a few players already. I'm beginning to think it has something to do with some of these results.

Great win though Claudia
