A.Ivanovic def N.Dechy 7-6, 6-4

Good Job Ana . I just watched last 3 games of this one as I woke up late but I am honestly surprised it was as close

Very good game again by Ana...33 winners, that´s scary and quite impressive.

Anyway, this win was expected and in case Justine wins (which I don´t doubt), it will be a match-up highlight for sure. And again my fave vs. fave...hope it won´t be as dramatic as usual...

Ana je carica
Šta više reći

I saw the second set... a bit messy and dodgy, but hey, I don't mind it! Great stuff, girl
Hopefully she plays Justine next

Dechy tried her best. She moved Ana around, she mixed it up, and she played agressive as she could. Ivanovic just had too much power. Dechy is use to losing to 6' + women who don't move great but hit hard so this lost shouldn't hurt her for too long.
Good play from both players.

Ana didn't play that well today. Couldn't convert break points and made errors at the most important moments. Still glad that she pulled through. She can overpower Henin if she comes out firing winners and Henin isn't in good form.

It seemed to be all Ana. Either scorching winners or, errors. Dechy was just responding most of the time.

Anyway good follow-up win for the 17 year-old.

She did the same thing against Zvonareva yesterday but it didn't matter too much because Vera was already crying after she lost the first set. Whoever Ana plays next she cannot let them back into the match. She'll have to step it up to win in the semis.

Well done Ana.

Henin Hardenne is a different game altogther, Hopefully she can step up and hopefully win.

It looks like ana enjoys the way the opponents serve sits up on this surface. She goes for the return winner whenever she can. Justines serve may be a bit too god for that though ( i hope not ).

good Job Anna

Mauresmo withdrew and she had Zvronareva was the high ranked player in her section and she has taken full advantage

Queen Vee, Super Rena, Krazy Kuzzie
