Melinda Czink and Misaki Doi were among the top ladiesâ€™ seeds to successfully navigate their way through their opening round qualifying matches in glorious sunshine this afternoon but second seed Eva Birnerova was not so fortunate â€“ crashing out 6-4, 6-2 to Petra Rampre.
Even so, top-seeded Hungarian Czink had her work cut out in the form of her opponent Victoria Larriere, who easily matched the world No.102 in power, accuracy, consistency and depth of shot. Blistering groundstroke winners proved to be the hallmark of the match, but it was the sprinkling of winning slice volleys and deft touch drop shots that had the spectators cooing in appreciation.
For much of the first set Larriere exuded an air of confidence that helped her push the top seed to a first tie-break, but at that point the Frenchwomanâ€™s game, notably her backhand, began to desert here paving the way for errors and the loss of the first set 6-7(1).
Come the second set gutsy baseline play helped Larriere save three match points but it was Czink who carved out a beautiful crosscourt winner on the fourth to seal the match 7-6, 6-4.
â€śIt was a very tough match,â€ť Czink toldÂ Wimbledon.com. â€śI knew she was going to come out and start firing and I think she played really, really well especially serving. She was going for her shots and had nothing to lose. I think I had to stay very tough and sharp and be very aggressive.
â€śI think I had a couple of short balls on those [match] points and didnâ€™t finish at the net. She sensed that I was getting tight and a little hesitant and took advantage. Iâ€™m happy with the way I played. It was a good match, a good start.â€ť
