Pavlyunchenkova has been rising like a rocket up the rankings and this is her career-best Slam finish. Unfortunately for her, the run ended today against an awfully scrappy defending champion. This result will help Pavlyunchenkova's ranking heading into Wimbledon, where she will have only first round points to defend.
