AO R1: (32) Tsvetana Pironkova (BUL) def. Pauline Parmentier (FRA) 6-4 3-6 6-3

Tsveti really fought well. She was on the verb of losing this match after trailing 3-2 in the third but managed to turn it around and win the last 4 games in the match.

I'm really impressed by Pironkova serve improvement during Wimbledon (finished TOP5 by number of aces and fastest serve) but I see today she hit just 2 aces during 3-set match, which is not good sign for sure.

Wish her best (4th round at least).

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

Deffinetely the serve was the key for her Wimbledon success. But since then the serve is not the same. Her first serve percentage is very low, she usually keeps it a bit higher for a set but that's it. She really had luck winning the match today.

Congrats to Tsveti, but Pauline, you have to start winning matches like this if you're going to progress to be something. Disappointing.

Congrats, Tsveti!Not really good stats from the match, but let's hope stats will improve with the harder opponent.

Good luck next round vs Niculescu!
