Madrid R1: [16] Ana Ivanovic d. Bethanie Mattek-Sands 6-7(10) 6-3 6-2



So happy. BMS got a little injured mid way through the second, apparently a groin injury but really it came down to her making more errors and Ana being more forceful as the match went on. Ana even started to hit BH winners

Both had SPs in the TB.

Some epic games, one on Ana's serve where she went down 0-40 to go to deuce like 10 times then she finally held

Please play better against JJ/Scheepers. Beth Hope the injury isn't too serious.

Entertaining match, especially in the first set it was really high quality tennis. BMS was not the same in the second half of the match though after the MTO.

Some good tennis by Ivanovic. BMS collapsed in the 3rd but overall a fairly good match.

What a wasted chance, Bethanie. I really hope she recovers fast, the clay season is still before her and she's playing beautifully. Ana was great too, but Bethanie still outplayed her in the first. Such a shame.

Ana wins matches in three sets, stays calm and goes deep this time during clay season! Come on Ana!

Indeed. Great display of tennis in 1st set.

The tiebreak 10-8 was superb,
BMS played one of the best sidespin-dropshots I have seen in the last years on the ladies tour.
She has so much touch and class.
As for Ivanovic, she really played well in that 1st set.

I haven't seen set 2 and set 3 though.

Some good stuff from both, but there was no need for this to be three sets, Ana
