Overall solid performance from Lena. Groundstrokes working well, serve was shaky towards the end but 6 or 7 aces to back it up :) Good luck in R2 :wavey:

@ 64 40 elena did 4 double faults in a row to give Alla the only game she was going to win in the 2nd set :haha: and at her next game of serving (while serving for the match) she made another double fault.

Elena i still love you even though you lose games where you dont even play a point haha.

Elena finished the match with an ace

Over my expectations IMO.

2nd Round against Rezai, winnable match even though Aravane is a ballbasher.

Good Luck lena.

her serve seemed to be steady. Nice rebound. She was down a break up until 3-4 then she only lost one game. Maybe this is the start of her coming out of her slump.

Solid match from Lena.

Too bad I wont get to hear Dick Enberg butcher Alla's name.

Please play well Lena.

7 ACES! And one to end the match on match point. How great it will be to see Elena as an ace leader of the tournament on wimbledon.org.

Rezai next. Elena's 4-0 against her, and 3/4 matches have been tough score-wise.

Should be interesting. Congrats on playing a little better than I thought you would.

As expected.

:spit: at serving it out with an Ace.

After a bad start in first set (1:3) Elena had the match under control :dance:

4 DFs in one game in second set. Please improve your serve Elena. :tape:

Alla was just an unforced error machine in 2nd set

Next is Rezai, and in this section, probably Alisa then Domi or Vesnina in R16

Well considering a lot of folks here said she was defo going out in the first the big blonde golden delicious didnt do so bad did she.

Sounds like a typical binary serving day, all or fuck all but still, 7 aces is pretty damn good.

A nice routine win over what could very well have been a really awkward opponent.

awful play from Alla since she lost the break lead in the 1st set :help:

Lena couldn't hit a BH in the beginning, always making UE...fortunally she improved through the match and finished with an ace :eek: :D

Oewh, like many definetly didn't expect this to be so easy... Every win here is a plus for me! She has a great draw, would be nice to see her take advantage. :)

Maybe lena didnt like alla's outfit

Considering how dire she was at Eastbourne, a nice suprise to see Elena in an efficient 1st round win:)

Alla can't even rely on this tournament for points this year, such is her form.

Sometimes, when Elena wins an opening round match like this, I think back to my days of being a Navritalova fan, when I could look at a scoreline like 6-4, 6-1 and think "Oh yeah, my girl's in good form. She's on her way."

And you know what? I honestly can't remember what it's like.

That's how long and how passionately I've been a Lena D. fan. I find that kind of frigthening. (Even trying to capture that feeling of confidence from the ATP side doesn't work. Ah, Lena, you are cruel, fickle one).

Saw the second set. What a shite match! Kudryavtseva just hit the ball out and the only game she got was when Dementieva served four double faults. I like Dementieva, but there is no way she's getting to the second week on that form.

Ugh Elena, even when just about everything is going perfectly she still plays a game like that 4-0 one. And after all this time following Elena you learn you can't take anything for granted so the fact it came at 4-0 means nothing. But overall still played good all things considered and finished it off impressively. Keep on going Elena, we're in need of a good run here not only to defend the points but to get your year back on track after a horrid couple of months. Good luck in 2R. :yeah:

Fuck yeah! :woohoo:

In my mind aces cancel out double-faults. So, really Lena only did 3 or 4 DFs. :)

Rezai should be winnable I hope. She beat her 6-2 6-2 earlier this year (even if that was when she was in God-mode for those 4 weeks or so :) ).
