Just found this on the GAZ site.



Mary Pierce ousted Elena Bovina. The French player prevailed 6-3, 6-4 over the young Russian player after playing 1h19 and six after the 1998 Open, she reached the semi-finals.

http://www.opengazdefrance.com/mediastore/gdf/open/img/p.gifIf Elena Bovina could resist to powerful attacks from Jelena Dokic in the second round in which she played each other, the young Russian player did not succeed in doing another achievement against Mary Pierce today.

Being ousted 6 games to 3 after 43 minutes of game, the player from Moscow the tried to reverse the situation in the second round. Being a combative, determined and winner over Anabel Medina Garrigues, does not allow anything to pass, then she erased the gap between her and the French player but without being able to go further and to dominate her opponent.

For her part, Pierce seemed quiet. Being reassured by her nice start with the wins over Spanish Arantxa Parra and Magui Serna, and satisfied by her tennis, the French-American player was combative, audacious and she was supported by her numerous fans, each time she won a point, Her Fed Cup captain, Guy Forget was also there, in the stands, to support her.

Being under pressure, in the second round, because of Bovina was determined to come back on the match, Pierce over passed the tempest by giving games but without being led. The she found back her domination and within 30 minutes she won the match 6-3, 6-4.

That’s an efficient win for the French player who once again qualified in two sets for the net round. Six years after her win at the Open Gaz de France, Pierce reached the semi-finals and she now hopes to move through the final: “I had a break for a few months and it really helped me, she explained at the end of the match. I’m happy but I hope that the week is not over, I hope to go on till the end.”
