Julia Georges Defeated. Elena Dementieva 3-6 7-5 6-3

No one could answer why it was Elena Dementieva played the way she did today, however it cost her a place in the Second Round as Germany's Julia Georges steam rolled through with an impressive and shocking victory through to the Second Round of the Championships!! Watch out cos' Julia is in town!!

Make her run. Get her. Remember, it takes courage and discipline to do/be Serena Williams- the best.

Chakvetadze


Anna Chakvetadze (RUS) def. Mashona Washington (USA)
5-7 6-4 7-6(5)


Over on court 6, it was a very desperate afair between these two with both players constantly arguing with the umpire and screeching quite fiercely especially in the third set. Anna is one of 7 Russians playing today and certainly hasn't looked like the strongest out of them at all. But she is showing signs of getting her confidence back and after winning the Auckland doubles title last week, her serve and volley skills came in handy especially in the second set to level things up. Mashona played a great match but she still needs to improve on certain things like her footwork if she wants to win matches convincingly. Anna survives another day and advances through to the second round.

Rezai


Aravane Rezai (FRA) def. Dinara Safina (RUS)
7-6(3) 2-6 6-2


Last match up on Rod Laver arena, saw yet another three set encounter between Sydney doubles champion Rezai and hot tempered Russian, Dinara Safina. The first was an exciting set with both players playing a decent set but it was Aravane who really let loose, swinging freely and achieving an impressive 7 winners in the tiebrake. Dinara seemed much more motivated in the second set and was hitting close to the lines and corners which really phased Aravane but then in the thrid set, Dinara changed her tactics completely and sometimes was only hitting half court balls which allowed Aravane to come in and attack. When Dinara was 4-2 down, she seemed hot and bothered and threw away the last two games with a dissapointing 8 unforced errors to give Aravane the match a ticket to round 2.

Jankovic


Jelena Jankovic Defeated. Laura Robson 6-3 3-6 6-2

Showing what a future prospect she can be laura put up a fight against Serbia's Jelena Jankovic in the First Round of the Australian Open!! JJ didn't have much to think about in the First set, however coming into the second was a whole complete new ball game!! laura played amazingly well outlasting JJ in the Second Set!! However coming into the third JJ knew what she had to do to get the job done, taking the Final Set in style!!

Make her run. Get her. Remember, it takes courage and discipline to do/be Serena Williams- the best.

Azarenka


Victoria Azarenka (BLR) def. Dominika Cibulkova (SVK)
1-6 7-5 6-1


In one of the most highly anticipated matches of round 1, Hisense Arena was packed out to witness who would advance through to the next round here and it was Victoria who looked to continue her good run at Sydney and do the same here in Melbourne with an impressive win over the champion at Auckland last week. Dominika looked like she was going to waste no time in advancing through to the next round when she opened a 6-1 5-3 lead but she was not to win another game after that and Victoria fought and fought with some stunning baseline battles between the pair and it is Victoria who will go on to face Elena Vesnina in the next round.
