6-4 for Elena. But certainly not an easy first set.

I think that it was expected. They know each other too well.

ATM neither one of them seems to be able to hold on to a lead or to their serve even if their lives would depend on it...
Finally Lena did, now try to break for the match...

Re: Cheering thread - Madrid: R1 vs Mirza & WD R1 with Mirza!

super
Lena broke for the match, 6-4, 6-3.
Can I say the least weak player won? (And isn't that the biggest issue in today's women's tennis in general?)

O well, another win on the red dirt. A big improvement over last year where Lena managed to win just 2 sets in total....

6-4 6-3 for Elena. But maybe the most important for both girls is what they're going to do together in doubles.

Nicely done Elena. Tough next round. Hope they do well in doubles too.

Re: Cheering thread - Madrid: R2 vs Zvonareva & WD R1 with Mirza!

Game just started, no stream...
Lena leads 3-0 with Vera to serve (Lena only lost 1 point on serve! )

Might be a little early to be excited, but what a start!
