Pervak upsets Andrea

Andrea Petkovic has missed to reach the round of sixteen at the All England Championships at Wimbledon. The 23-year-old German lost 4-6, 6-7 (2) to Ksenia Pervak (RUS | WTA 89) in the third round.

Andrea struggled right from the start when Pervak broke Petko's first service game. The Russian subsequently concentrated on avoiding unforced errors, did not leave Andrea any breakballs and took away the first set after 32 minutes.

In the second set Andrea tried to turn things around by approaching the net and throwing in some slices now and then. But Pervak stuck to her game and broke Andrea's serve when the score was 2-2. Andrea was able to come back, take Pervak's serve and equalise to 4-4. Petko missed the big chance to win the second set when she gave away two setballs leading 6-5. In the following Tie-Break, Pervak showed more confidence and converted the first of her four matchballs.

Andrea still plays Doubles at Wimbledon. Together with Ana Ivanovic (SRB) she advanced to the second round beating Kai-Chen Chang (TPE)/Jill Craybas (USA) 6-1, 6-2. She will also compete in the Mixed Doubles with Feliciano Lopez (ESP).
