Now appears she'll play Petra R2, interesting match.

Really like the way Nastya took care of her serve.

Only two DFs? Way to go, Pavsy. Sorry, Lucie.

Her serve looked better than it has in a long time!

I have a feeling we might be seeing Pavs in the top 15 again this year.

Happy for Pavs, sad for Lucie, who had QF Auckland points to defend.

Many more aces than double faults Looking fitter as well! Can't wait for the showdown against Kvitova.

Re: Brisbane R1: Pavlyuchenkova d. Hradecka 6-3, 3-6, 6-3

I watched the whole match. It was pretty much a serving contest, with both players serving ridiculously well on a court that is known for being very fast (much faster than the centre court).

Both players won their service games very easily throughout the whole match on 2/3 shots points all the time. Pavlyuchenkova served so well that she outserved Hradecka most of the match and also looked a bit better on the rare baseline rallies.

Only 3 breaks of serve in 27 games shows how much this match was serve-dominant. Hradecka looked really good like a top 25/30 player that she is on her best, while Pavlyuchenkova looked her best in years really. Only 2 double faults on a very windy day shows a lot of progress in comparison to the past season.

If she plays like she did today, Pavlyuchenkova vs Kvitova will be an excellent match to follow. And another serving contest by the way!

Ok now that I've composed myself I'd say she looks fitter and her serve looked better than I've seen it in 18 months or so. Really exciting

Yeyy. Really looked like she could be in danger, early stages of the third. She looks so much fitter now. And the serve looks promising. I know she was playing against Lucie "I Can't Return To Save My Life" Hradecka, but I mean, she lost only a single point on serve in the first set. Impressive. Hopefully she continues to build.
