Brisbane 2r: [1] Ana Ivanović saves 2 MPs to beat [Q] Roberta Vinci 67(4) 75 61.

Well done, Ana! Terrible start though and she needed to face the wall to find her range. Played well to save MPs, get the set and at the start of the 3rd.
That ball-toss however... Worst I've ever seen in a pro-player. Just embarrassing. It got better as the match went on and it might be the sort of match she would want before AO building her confidence.
Poor Roberta...

Linesmen need fired.

Ana Ivanović.

All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wonder are lost. The old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost. From the ashes a fire shall shall be woken, a light from the shadows shall spring. Renewed shall be blade that was broken. The crownless again shall be king

Ana I don't know what to say qualifer curse nearly strikes again. Very happy she pulled it out saving 2 mps. Brisbane also really needs hawkeye some really dodgy line calls.

Oh and yes that ball toss.

It's so weird not having hawkeye in Brisbane. You would think a brand new venue would have it.

Ana I just hope she gets through this event with some more wins because it's clear she is still struggling with her confidence. She desperately needs it back soon.

So sad Roberta was affraid to win, because she should really have closed it when she could.

Were the linespersons sleeping ?
