Her play has been unbelievably shoddy since she switched rackets. Obviously, Kata is a tricky veteran. It's not necessarily the score that bothers me (though someone with Ana's power really should wrap this up in straights, even if they are tough straights,) but the choke. Ana has never in her career had problems closing matches until this tournament...

Why winning a match in under an hour if you can play for two? Match practice is all what counts.
Anyway, Ana's dress colour will suit to the courts as Justine will wipe them with her if she keeps this level of concentration up.

Kata.

Ana Ivanović.

Obviously you don't follow Ana's matches at all. Ana's lost many many 2nd sets after having gone up a break.

Ana Ivanović.

Are we talking about the same Ana?

Just from last year.

Set and break ahead against Sveta in Madrid and it went to 7-5 3rd set.
Against Hantuchova she almost blew the 2nd set there after a lead of a break.

She was a set and break ahead against Dulko in Charleston and had MP in that set. It went to 6-4 in the 3rd. She almost wasted a double break there as well.

Against Dechy in Antwerp she served twice for the match in the 2nd set.
It ended in 6-2 in the 3rd.


1. Ana Ivanovic

2. Maria Kirilenko
3. Anastasija Sevastova

Well, Ana is definitely the drama queen of 2008 so far! I'm just happy as long as she's winning. I think her career is building very nicely so far.

Now, to take on Justine... :worried:

Well, she will have to play better tomorrow if she wants to have at least a bit of a fight against Justine...

But anyway, congrats on making it to the semis Ana.
