Bulgaria's Pironkova Off to Flying Start at Wimbledon

Date: 21.06.2011

Tsvetana Pironkova of Bulgaria returns to Vera Zvonereva of Russia during their semi final match for the Wimbledon Championships at the All England Lawn Tennis Club, in London, Britain, 1 July 2010

Bulgaria's top female tennis player Tsvetana Pironkova smashed Italian Camila Giorgi 6-2, 6-1 for less than an hour in her opening match at the Wimbledon Grand Slam Tournament.

The first set took Pironkova just 21 minutes, as she succeeded in breaking two of the 19-year-old Italian's service games. The Bulgarian then closed the second set with even greater ease, giving away just one game to her opponent.

Pironkova, 34th in the WTA rankings, will meet either Petra Martic of Croatia or Vania King freom the US in the second round.

It was at last year's Wimbledon tournament that the Bulgarian player made her breakthrough by reaching the semifinals.
