Elena Dementieva (4) def. Kristina Barrois 7-6(4) 2-6 6-1

Sloppy stuff
think it was just an inability to concentrate, she didnt look too focussed.
She should play better next round

Wow. Barrois missed a BP in the first game of the final set...
And she missed SPs in the first set.

Dementieva could be gone.

Kristina was on fire for the first 2 sets...


Absolutely crushing forehands...



A little concerned for Elena... Possible injuries and a racquet change???? Whats the idea behind that???


Good Final Set!

Gosh, what a way of starting the first Slam of the season. Can't she have a comfortable first round win for once and spare her fans the pain?

I knew thi would happen, she was being so match greedy that went ahead and tired herself off on the second day. This was bad match from her.

Expected first round for her.

Barrois should have won this in straights.

Dementieva was VERY LUCKY in the 1st set... if Kristina has played a bit better in the tiebreak, she'll be home in Russia by Wednesday...

Well, at least she survived... but she'll need to do better in the next round...

Winning ugly..lol

Lena can onl go better from here. Very bad tennis from her, let Barrois shine and hit about two hundred UE.

So much room for improvement. But oh well, this was the first round,she should unpack her A game in the quarters first.

Today she played 8% and still won

Simona Halep
Juan Martin Del Potro
