Wimbledon 1r: Roberta Vinci (ITA) def. Ashley Harkleroad (USA) 62 61

Disastrous match from Ashley, I expected her to win a set or at least a few more games.

Awesome job though, Roby!

Ashley

but on grass this is hardly surprising, she's always played horrible on this surface.

Great Roberta!

I read your fears running to form veils in his eyes, before the big jump, obscuring the minds of future memories

I'm not sure why Ashley sucks so on this surface, but nobody does it better.

Still, congratulations to Roberta.

Someone is quietly turning back the clock...to them bulldozer dayz...

Always on the lookout for a great tennis match.

Roberta is a great grass courter, no suprise with the result. I hope she can do some damage this year with her serve and volley game.

Ashley is dire on grass, this result is no surprise against a good grasscourt player like Vinci.

I don't think she's THAT bad on grass, she hasn't been doing too badly in the last two years, there are many worse players on that surface.

2006 - def. Kostanic Tosic 63 62, lost to Sharapova 62 62.
2005 - qualified, def. Hradecka, Obziler, Flipkens, then lost to Craybas 64 46 64 (Craybas def. S. Williams in straights a few days later)
