Thanks for the report, Olga. It's great to read that Vera Z. was having some fun :). If she is happy, she is sure to perform better than if she is :banghead:.

Any more of these - - -
The second match on the Centre Court was Russian, past winner Elena Bovina playing Slovenian Katarina Srebotnik. Bovina started the match slowly and quickly lost forst two games. Then she found some rhythm and menaged to break back and tight the score to 2-2. Still her game wasn't perfect. She was making many unforced errors and it was her serve that was keeping her winning games. But it didn't help till the end and Lena lost her serve. That let Srebotnik win the set 6-4.
In the second set Bovina still was struggling and Katarina early took the lead. Elena tried to get the breat very much at the beginning and succeded. This set was definitely better from her. Still with couple unforced errors but won 6-3.
In the third set Bovina was very confident and sure of her win. She was dominating on all court. Srebotnik lost the rhythm. Bovina took thenset quickly 6-1.
