DOUBLES competition

Since become WTA TOP10 in 2nd half of 2007 Ana always plays doubles once per season, but maybe now things will be changed when her new coach is former two-time GS champion in doubles competition. I don't think that she will start doubles more seriously - just more often.

Her new doubles career will begin at Porsche Open in Stuttgart and doubles partner will be German player (with Serbian origins) Andrea Petkovic. In original it should be Kim Clijsters, but she withdraws from Stuttgart event.

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

Re: DOUBLES competition

Ana and Kim? I'm missing out on so much They should play at RG or something.
Ana asked Caro to play last year but she refused and then she had to play with Lisicki instead

Re: DOUBLES competition

Ana and Jelena should play together for Fed Cup practice

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Re: DOUBLES competition

That unplanned 2010 Stuttgart doubles with Petkovic seems that will turn into permanent partnership for Ana! So after several years pause (w. Kirilenko) we can say now that Ana have again full-time doubles partner in Andrea Petkovic, so its time to re-bump this thread.


Ana and Andrea Petkovic (doubles team already known as Ivanorazzi) last season played just two events and achieve only one win. But this season they start to play more often and much better, so in Miami and Toronto they beat two really strong teams: Strycova/Benesova and Petrova/Gajdosova. Still, they are more famous for theirs winning dances than wins , but maybe things will change very soon if they continue with obvious 2011 improvement.



After beating Petrova/Gajdosova, their next opponents in Toronto are TOP4 seeded Azarenka/Kirilenko power-team which this season even played GS final and last title together won just two weeks ago in Stanford! Good luck to Ana and Andrea.

Re: DOUBLES competition

For the first time after 2011 Ana playing doubles at some WTA tournament. In Auckland, New Zealand, she partnering with Belgian Kirsten Flipkens which have even more pathetic career in doubles than Ana (this Belgian never reach TOP100).

In first round as WC's they beat somehow Falconi/Hridinova team (not big names at all) 4-6 6-3 11-9 saving couple MP's in final super-TB.
But real reason why I decide to bump this thread is fact that right now in QF round they leading vs multiple doubles GS champion Hradecka and former TOP30 Krajicek 6-3 4-4 with fantastic stats on theirs serve games

Re: DOUBLES competition

Miracle is not happen... after my re-bump post they won just 5 points till end of the match and lose 6-3 4-6 3-10

Ana should to blame Flipper for this lose and punish her for that in upcoming SF in singles

Re: DOUBLES competition

They lost in QF of doubles, but they had one win and that's already fine. I hope we will see them in pair from time to time.
