Re: Australian Open Draws and Results 
Singles Results, First Round
Alexandra Anastidis def. Siri Cornetsson 7/6(0), 4/6, 7/5
Alex fended off the challenge of the Swede, who can't find any consistency.
Aleesha Stosur def. Alijah Pemovic 7/5, 7/6(6)
The battle of the Aussies saw the lower ranked Aleesha edge out the higher ranked Alijah in two tight sets.
Regla Torres def. Emma Anderson 0/6, 6/1, 14/12
This match was over three hours long and the crowd highly favored Emma, but Regla had too much stamina and ultimately won.
Anna Kenndal def. Alize Mathieu 7/6(5), 7/6(6)
Two tight sets with some crucial net plays in the the tiebreakers propelled Anna to the second round in Melbourne.
Vittoria Perez def. Martine Kartincova 6/1, 6/1
A walk in the park for Vittoria who was generous in giving Martine a couple of games.
Aveta Tenesova def. Susan Bones 6/1, 6/1
Aveta took Susan to the cleaners and was off the court in under an hour in this quick victory.
Sabine Graf def. Anastasia Nemayeva 6/3, 3/6, 11/9
The wily veteran, Sabine, used her nerves of steel to take the third set and the match, fending off a tough first round against Nemayeva.
Miraculous Workicz def. Xhakalinda Saikikimbondwe 7/6(6), 7/6(2)
How the tables have turned. Xhaka was known for her ability to upset pro players and now a pro herself, has found herself upset by a junior in two sets.
