On Court - Ivanovic Breaks Through In New York

http://static.guim.co.uk/sys-images/Sport/Pix/pictures/2009/6/25/1245923676188/Ana-Ivanovic-of-Serbia-ce-001.jpg

Ana Ivanovic has battled her way to her first tour title in New York. The Serbian saw off Elena Baltacha in a gritty match under the lights at Flushing Meadows this evening. Baltacha came out fighting, hitting with sustained rythm and took the first set 61. Ivanovic found herself 3-0 down in the second set, and it seemed Baltacha was close to the finish line. However the Serbian number 1 regained her composure and edged back to lead 4-3 with her service to follow. Baltacha hit 4 fantastic returns forcing errors from the eratic Serbian, and broke back for 4-4.

Both girls then consequently lost their service games leaving the score at 5-5. Ivanovic then had 3 break point oppurtunities on the Baltacha serve, but failed the covert any of them and the Britian pushed ahead to 6-5. Ana played a brave service game and took the match to a tie break, which she went on to take 7 points to 3. The final set saw Baltacha fall away and Ivanovic looked composed serving out the match at 5-1.

Ivanovic advances 6 places in the rankings to number 7, whilst Baltacha jumps 2 places to number 3. Elsewhere in the rankings, Maria Sharapova slips 3 places to number 10, semi-finalist Jelena Jankovic moves 2 place to number 14. Next week the tour heads to Quebec and there is a smaller tournament in Sofia, Bulgaria.
