Final stats - 40 minute match - 24 first set, 16 second. Makiri 62% first serve percentage (21-34), 3 aces, 3 double faults, 13 winners, 16 unforced effors. She won 52% of her first serves, 46% of her second. Makiri came to the next 16 times (out of a total of 69 points played) and won 8 for a 50% (am sure she wants to improve that). Total points 43 won by Makiri, 26 lost. She held serve 3 times and was broken 2 times. Did not actually see the match as Pironkova-Venus Williams is now 7-7 in the third set and ESPN2 never moved off that match. They also showed a lot of the Davenport match, go figure, American TV showing the high seed American players, and never cut to a blow out match between two Russians. But all in all a very convincing, rout by Makiri in 40 minutes. The second round match up should not be as challenging. Maybe best of all for me, Makiri comes back off a tough lost to Petrova and wins, just as she came off a tough loss to Bepa Z and beat Gisela in Sydney. She has shown some resiliancy, hasn't she. And continues another nice trend, she keeps beating the players she should beat. This is how Big Masha got it all started. A great day for Makiri fans!
