Mary played great! I was really impressed with her opponent but her class won out in the end. If she can keep that level up (and the serving %) she's got a great chance to make the quarters.


One match at a time though!

Saby or someone else who saw the match,

Can you please give us a few details of the match? What was Mary's outfit? How was her game? Any points that stuck out in your mind?

Mary is in white, we have never seen her outfit, it's new i think
Lucie plays the same game than mary, stronger, big risk, in two or three strokes (sorry for my english) but mary was a little bit better than lucie

Her outfit seems a little different than usual

Mary did play really well, her shots were terrific, Mary won 5 games by 40/00, only one game was hard, she lost it, it was at 2/3 in second set, but she broke back and win the match.

Mary did score 6 aces, not that usal for Mary !!!

She was serving almost all the time around 85mph really really good match, good attitude on court with some "allez !!! when she had great shots.

I have to say that it remind me RG 2005, she's on the same way, Mary wasn't wearing bandages on her legs (very good...)

Safafora was a really good test, this player will be very tough in the future

Match ReportsPierce Eases onto LawnTuesday, June 21, 2005

French Open finalist Mary Pierce has made a successful transition from clay to grass, winning her first round match at Wimbledon in convincing style. In fading light the French No.12 seed beat 18-year-old Czech Lucie Safarova in straight sets, 6-3, 6-4.

At the age of 30 Pierce is enjoying yet another successful comeback from injury, which has included a win at Roland Garros over world No.1 Lindsay Davenport. The disappointment of her subsequent finals loss to Justine Henin-Hardenne was cast aside today as she took the first set from her 60th-ranked opponent with ease, 6-3.

Safarova made a better start to the second set, holding her own serve and applying pressure on Pierce's delivery. On her third break point at 3-2 Safarova wrong footed Pierce to take a 4-2 lead.

But the popular veteran didn't lose her cool. When heavy hitting secured an immediate break back for Pierce her opponent's newfound confidence proved shortlived. Pierce held serve for 4-4 and broke again for 5-4. She then served the match out to love, underlying proceedings with an ace.

Pierce now plays Julia Vakulenko of Ukraine in the second round.

I can't help but say this: I wish the Roland Garros Final had proved to be one match too many for Justine Henin-Hardenne rather than her first round at the next tournment!! How many others of you have thought that?!
