Encouraging signs for the Russian in her comeback, with some wonderful returns and supersonic winners down the line, but far too inconsistent overall. Although she did hit a handful of winners, Zhang simply sat back and waited for the errors for a lot of the match, but outbroke Diatchenko 7-4. There were five service breaks in a row in the second set before Zhang finally held to take the match.

As the commentator said, Zhang will have to lift her game considerably against Heather Watson in the second round. Diatchenko, meantime, will head to London for Wimbledon qualifying next week.

I think VD defeated Sharapova on grass some years ago in the first round. She has justified her existence.
