Toronto 2R: (Q-ALT) Zi Yan (CHN) def. (4) Ana Ivanovic (SRB) 6-3 6-1!!

Just amazing today Zi She hit so hard, so flat, so well - she barely made any unforced errors today - I don't know the exact statistic, but it was a single digit!

Ana made MANY unforced errors, but Zi did not let up, congratulations Zi Your ranking should sky-rocket next week!

Continue, keep going Zi!

Best career victory for Zi, for sure!!

Hantuchova/Sugiyama def. (1) Black/Huber 6-7(0) 6-3 7-6(10) saving SEVEN match points, down 2-5 in the third, and down 2-6 in the third set tiebreak in three hours

Ai Sugiyama. Jie Zheng. Zi Yan. Tamira Paszek.
Yaroslava Shvedova. Nuria&MariaJose. Yung-Jan Chan. Elena Vesnina. Flavia Pennetta.

Thumbs up Toronto 2R: (ALT)Zi Yan(CHN) d Defending Champ (4)Ana Ivanovic(SRB) 63 61 :worship:

OMFG this is one of the best results of 2007 for me
I was so sad earlier today when Na withdrew USO but now I am so happy

Ana came in white hot with wins over Jankovic and Petrova in LA Tier II ... plus she is the defending champ at this event ... Zi Yan came into this match as the HUGE UNDERDOG, as an ALTERNATE that didn't even qualify for the qualifying draw based on her ranking and never having beaten a top 10 player, let alone a top 5 player in her career ... now she holds the record for the best win ever by a Chinese player by defeating World #4 Ana Ivanovic (previously held by Na Li when she defeated World #5 Kim Clijsters in Miami 2007) ... and she didn't just BEAT ANA, she did it with AUTHORITY

she is no longer the qualification queen now
she has MADE IT in the MAIN DRAW KEEP GOING ... I think Shaughnessy is next and that is certainly a winnable match

all those posters that wrote off Zi Yan in my thread from yesterday and said Ana would defeat Zi easily YOU ARE EATING CROW NOW

adrigf is going to be bouncing off the walls once he finds out this result when he comes home from work today

Ana you didn't play your best today but you had the decency to stay out on the court until the last point

and for all you Canadian posters that made a big deal of Dubois winning a set off Nadia, the big difference between the Dubois and Yan result is Yan finished the job while Steph couldn't get it done

WTF? I expected Ivanovic to be slightly exhausted after her win in LA, but not to this point. Where was the fight that she showed against Jankovic? Regardless, I hope she uses this time to rest before the USO.
