Poor old struggling Olivia Rogowska (AUS) had a good come-from-behind win yesterday against former top 20 player, Elena Bovina.

Elena had played a marathon match the previous day lasting 4+ hours. She started off well against Liv, going out to a 6-2 4-1 lead. Liv somehow managed to get back into it and had 3 SPs at 6-5. She couldn't close it out and the 2nd set went to a tiebreak and Bovina had 4 MPs at 6-2! Again, Liv came back and took the tiebreak 8-6 and then won the 3rd set easily.

Nice to see her back in a WTA main draw. She drew Pennetta in R1, so don't like her chances, but still, a good effort from a slumping sister... :)

Woof, terrible result for Bovina. Losing to Rogowska is like one step up from losing to Giorgi. :tape:

Four, even. Bovina lead 6-2 in the tiebreak.

Really?! I missed that. Saving 4 consecutive MPs is pretty remarkable. Wouldn't happen very often at all!
