2012 Aegon International

Paszek powers past Erkovic

Tamira Paszek delivered the knockout blow to New Zealand #1 Marina Erkovic 7-5 6-1 in 90 minutes in their 1st Round contest.

The Austrian world #58, who is staying with her Godparents in the town of Eastbourne, looked relaxed yet determined as she gave Erkovic a lesson in finishing the points.

Erkovic, who for months has been at the centre of doubt regarding her potentially playing at the 2012 London Olympic Games, faltered in the second set with Paszek showing a rare ruthless streak.
