Shvedova dominated the first set on Court 5, striking nine winners to Zhang's four, breaking the Chinese player's serve twice and not facing a single break point. In the second set, the Kazakh No.52 made life more difficult for herself by putting just 46 percent of her first serves in play, thereby allowing Zhang to win many more points on return and convert two of her five break-point opportunities.
