Sveta Ana is just not a good match-up for her....and she (Sveta) didn't play particularly well either. Oh well, onwards!

Ana Played very well, her backhand was good.

Wonderful performance by Ana and she looked STUNNING! This may be the best tennis dress Ana has ever worn. Love the color and I will be buying mine today! I actually liked Sveta's shorts ensemble as well.

Sveta didn't play well... many silly mistakes.

Re: Miami R3: (12) Ana Ivanovic def. Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-3 6-3

Since my thread was just closed, I will post what I put in there here.

Watching the highlights and someone needs to tell Kuznetsova that her contrived grunting is incredibly annoying. Not only does it last for far too long, her interpretation of a male Spanish clay-courter is embarrasing. We go on and on about the shrieking of Azarenka and Sharapova, but it's bizarre when one minute Kuznetsova is slient and then grunting at the top of her voice - Kirilenko is another player who does this.

The WTA need to stamp this out. It's damaging for the tour.

Re: Miami 3rd Round Battle of RG Champs: (12) Ivanovic def. punchbag Kuznetsova 6-3 6

Nice job Ana, routine win against a potentially tough opponent.

It wasn't a bad match from Sveta for her standards by any means - unneccessary grunting and general classlessness were at their peak, but I would only give her gamesmanship a 6/10 for this match. I mean, she didn't even try a tactical MTO to swing the momentum. Must improve before clay season starts.

Well done, Ana !

Very impressive. Kuznetsova had zero chance

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck

Disappointing result for Sveta!
Expected a bit more after her good results in Australia..its good that she beats the opponents which she has to beat but losing to Stosur,Bartoli,Vinci and Co. is also not great, her serve is still a mess it seems, often horrible stats, well see how it goes on clay!!
