I haven't seen Elena Baltacha play for almost a year now and it's a pity she had to draw Sam Stosur among the top 10 players, since Sam loves the clay! In their first round match today, Elena was almost toe-to-toe with Sam and the scoreline showed it 64 to Stosur. Both used their lethal forehands and strong groundstrokes. However, Stosur upped her game in the second set and Elena wasn't able to catch up, unfortunately.
Elena was served a bagel.
