Re: Paris round 2: Dementieva d Pavlyunchenkova 64 64
Lena didn't play great but did enough to get the job done. So good to see her back on court after such a long break.
Pavlyuchenkova sure gives the ball an almighty whack-she needs to compromise a little to make sure the balls go in though. Her backhand down the line is excellent.
Courtside interview was

Good luck in the QFs, hoping that she might face Oudin in the semis

"And thanks to all the people around the world for supporting me, and my fan club, I could feel your support no matter where I was in the world. Thank you for your devotion. Most importantly, thanks to my family, especially my mom. You've been very supportive, encouraging, inspiring... you were always there for me. It was a long way and we did it together. I love you mom. It's so emotional. It's so hard to say goodbye. I'm going to miss you so much"
