Got a little nervous when Lena led like 4-1 in the 2nd set but of course the better player won today! Win this thing Elena Dementieva! And with Wickmayer out it may be possible. :P

This year, you're the number one seed in the tournament and main favourite of the event maybe this is the year...
ELENA DEMENTIEVA: (Laughter) I'm sure that it's going to be a hard tournament to win. It's nice being the favourite, but I know that I'll have to play really well right from the start. I love playing here and I'm ready.

Q. We can see you all over Paris on the tournament posters where you're all alone that must make you happy?
ELENA DEMENTIEVA: (Laughter) Yes, it's really nice. It's the first time that I'm alone on the poster, it makes me feel good.

Q. You'll be battling it out with Benesova or Pavlyuchenkova who you've always beaten before. This should make you feel more confident.
ELENA DEMENTIEVA: It's never easy to play the first game. It's hard to start off a tournament, so I'm waiting to see who'll I'll be up against and then I'll see? in any case, I'm here and I'm ready.

Q. What are your objectives for this new season?
ELENA DEMENTIEVA: Still the same: winning a Grand Slam tournament and becoming World Number 1. And it all begins in Paris.

Lena didn't play great but did enough to get the job done. So good to see her back on court after such a long break.
Pavlyuchenkova sure gives the ball an almighty whack-she needs to compromise a little to make sure the balls go in though. Her backhand down the line is excellent.
Courtside interview was :rolleyes:. Why didn't they let Lena speak in french?
Good luck in the QFs, hoping that she might face Oudin in the semis:devil: La vengeance sera chouette.:drool:

Pavlychenkova is even fatter than Bartoli :devil: She really must lose at least 7-10 kilos and improve her footwork cuz it is :tape:

Not at your finest by any means but always had Anastasia at bay. Good job on the winners to errors too.

Was enough-to-win performance, nothing exceptional. The fire should come in later rounds

God luck against rezai or who..
