IW: A Ivanovic def F Pennetta 6-4, 4-6, 6-4

Scratchy stuff from Ana, lots of brainless bashing. Still trying to hit her way through her low-confidence patch. Like Venus, she does so much better when she simply adds a bit of spin to her shots.

Flavia was okay. Nothing remarkable on display tonight.

Someone is quietly turning back the clock...to them bulldozer dayz...

Always on the lookout for a great tennis match.

Looking at the stats, it seems like she was just able to fight her way out of this one. I miss the old Ana, who didn't have to win ugly every second match. :/

Well, she made it anyway, good luck next round.

Tough luck Flavia, good luck in your next tournament.

I agree. Ana only wins ugly these days, it seems.

This was definitely a scratchy match with lots of shifting momentum. Ana was the better player on the night though. I hope she can win the tournament and perhaps find some form along the way. Although considering this field, she can probably win at this current level. I think getting by Pennetta was actually one of her toughest tests possible in IW, at least until the final.
