Milan exho: Ana Ivanovic def. Roberta Vinci 7/6 in front of a huge crowd


But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

At least she's winning the matches that matter.

Can someone describe the set? I didn't have chance to follow the situation. Thanks.

Both were solid on their serves throughout the first ten games which means that there have been no breaks until 5-5 (I remember that Roberta had at least one break point earlier in the set though). At 5-5 Ana broke Roberta only to lose her own service game when serving for the set. In the tie break Ana was 6-3 up serving for the next two points and lost both of them but at 6-5 she took the deciding point off of Roberta's serve. It was an entertaining set with some nice points and Ana was smiling all the time, even during rallies.

Vinci led 6-0, but since it was an exhibition they played on and Ana won 7-6.

I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.
The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.
You made the list: NEW President Bouchard, Cibulkova, Mladenovic, Wozniacki, Kerber, Cornet, Watson, Broady.
Please note this is a signature about Tatjana Maria

I'm hoping that too. Ana will be in the top 10 at the end of 2013.

Not with her current fitness. I think 2012 will probably be similar to 2010-2012. She'll have decent results here and there, but she has yet to prove she is capable of playing top 10 tennis on a consistent basis, and if she doesn't get physically stronger, I just don't see it happening at all. I hope I am wrong, of course.

Apathetic Ana Ivanovic fan.
