Just watched the game on tape, and I have to say that is one of the most disappointing performances from Ivanovic I have seen. Right from the word go she just wasn’t on today, you could see it wasn’t going to be her day. Now in my opinion there are a few main areas of concern in her game.
In saying all that Myskina is in unbelievable form, she is well and truly back to her best. However Ana didn’t even provide a contest today, she was just off the boil right from the beginning. Hopefully she can improve in her next outing.
Blah, bad match. It was clear from the start that it wasn't her day and she didn't do anything to spoil Myskina's party. What really pissed me off is that she had chances midway through the 2nd set but she kept hitting the returns of serve out. Anastasia played a great and very smart match and deserves all credit, but Ana really should have put more of a fight there.
