Elena Vesnina has had a really good season so far--her first good season, in fact. She was seeded number 1 among qualifiers, but lost today in the first round to wild card Michaella Krajicek. When she is at her best, Krajicek is very good, but she just hasn't had any momentum for a while. Today, however, she moved to the second round of qualifying with a score of 7-6, 6-4. Her next opponent will be Camille Pin.
Also losing in the first round were Michelle Larcher de Brito, Julie Coin (in a very close one) and Sesil Karatantcheva.
