(3) Elena Bovina (RUS) d. (WC) Caroline Maes (BEL) 61 61

Udachi Lena Bovina

She has had a fairly good past month and I was a bit worried after her 2 weeks rest after U.S Open, but she came back strong and hopefully Bovina is still fit and healthy

Easy points for Lena in this tournament hopefully

Congrats Lena

The big difference is that she put on some weight and she has a new female coach.

Lucie ''Lucka'' Safarova, Petra ''KvittyGoat'' Kvitova, Sabine ''BoomBoom Bine'' Lisicki

You might as well smile, you might as well smile cause tomorrow, you just don't know...

I saw the match. Elena had a good serve and a good bh inside out/dtl. The rest was just horible. She didn't play good at all IMO. The 61 61 is even flattering Elena, Caroline had lots of gamepoints.

But I'm sure she will improve. I have the feeling she wanted to overpower Caroline because of Caroline's low rank and it resulted in lots of UE's. Against better-ranked opponents she will probably play better

I dont understand why Caroline got the wildcard though, she's not the highest ranked player below Flipkens.
Anyways, good job playing her first ever debut WTA match at age 2.
Though I was hoping Elke would have played this in s and d, of course that's not happening in either.

Lena has won 12 of her last 15 matches, losing to Serena, Amelie, and Lindsay. She won Tier II New Haven.
Lena has been training at the Sanchez-Casal Academy in Barcelona since June.
They've done a great job with Svetlana, and Lena seems to be developing well also.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
