The third set from Tzveti was just Wimbledon good!!!! Pironkova started making winners from all around the court, lobs, drop shot returns on first serve, killer backhands, forehand smashes from the back court that looked like bullets, she played like a top ten player, just crazy performance. Zakopalova was playing well but Pironkova was hitting winner after winner. Great start to the season!!!!

She doesn't push or chip her forehand anymore, she actually hits it now, about time.

For crying out loud last year she did better at the US Open than at Wimbledon, girl can play on all surfaces. I think 2013 will be a great year for Pironkova!
Her game has improved so much in so little time.
