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