French Open: Dinara Safina into 3rd round at Roland Garros
Dinara Safina stormed past Vitalia Diatchenko with a 6-1, 6-1 victory in the second round of the French Open 2009.
Safina took a 5-0 lead to open the match, stretching her streak to 17 straight games after winning 6-0, 6-0 in the first round.
“Pretty good start for the tournament. I just played a good game today, good enough to win.” Safina said.
Diatchenko broke Safina once in the second set but failed to convert her only other chance in the first.
“I felt so bad because I didn’t play my best game today. She’s in good form. Every ball she put close to the line.” Diatchenko said.
In the third round of Roland Garros Dinara Safina will face Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, who beat Julie Coin 6-2 7-6.
