Sigh. She's only setting us up to break our hearts.

But I love her anyway. I am one sick bastard. A good win for Lena, and hopefully a sign of things to come outside of Australia.

Very good start. Lena can do some damage with this draw.

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!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: AO 1R: (7) Dementieva CRUSHES Foretz 6-1 6-2

for those wondering, elena had 3 aces, all early in the second set, and 6 double faults. a tame serving day, really. 17 winners and 18 errors, so definitely good off the ground. foretz had 21 more errors than winners. still, great to see her survive the first hurdle. hopefully she can make the rare nice run here.

7/10 at net, max.

That's a pretty big hurdle to get out of the way for Elena. Now everything she does from here on in adds to her ranking I believe.

And nice of her not to give her adoring fans a heart attack. A nice easy win.

Lena!

Hardest match out of the way?!?

She's got one of the better draws so hope to God she takes advantage of this. She can possibly live up to seeding. Good Luck Lena!

Maria Sharapova

Dayum, we're good.

Lena's obviously been listening.

Lena got a benign draw for the first couple of rounds.

Lena Vesnina is a possibly dangerous foe in R3.
