Iva was second beneath the list. JenJen and Anna withdrew, but Anna was there with a WC, which, going by the forum Marry got. And Iva is not in Quallies. So either
1) Iva got in MD.
2) Iva pulled out of having to play quallies.
Sooo, anyone know which one is it?

iva should be in the md because likhovtseva is the top seed in quallies and is ranked 9 places below iva :)

Iva plays Alexandra Stevenson 1st round! Alex is tough on this surface and this could be tough match for Iva, but I still think she can pull it off. I'd love to see what she can do against Lindsay 2nd round. Good luck Iva!!!!
Iva leads the H2H vs Alex 1-0, but that was on clay and from 2001:
I really don't get how Iva lost her indoors touch. I mean, I know she had some bad years overall, but she was even worse indoors then average these past few years, and it was her best surface, by far before RG. Weird
CONGRATULATIONS IVA FOR WINNING!!!!!!!!!Now, beat Lindsay!!!;)
Was this her first match she won this year?

No, she won a round of quallies for Syndey, but lost in 2nd rd (still quallies). :fiery:
Now, on to Lindsay. I doubt Iva will beet her, but I KNOW she can beet her.
Oh well, still hoping!
Go Iva! :bounce: :bounce:

Lindsay struggled against Tulyaganova in the oppening round of AO and this is her first match on carpet while it is Iva's second. Hopefully Iva can pull off an upset!!! :D

A good win over a tough opponent!!!! Iva always surprises!!!!
I hope she's got one more surprise in her when she plays Lindsay!!!! She lost to Lindsay in the quarters of this tourni in 2001, 6-2 6-0 :eek: but hopefully this will be a better showing. Can't get much worse than the last time they played anyways!!!!
GO IVA!!! Pull off the upset!!!!

Great win Iva! :kiss:
I had a feeling she'd take out Alex, and glad she did just that :p Im not expecting anything against Lindsay, but I hope it's closer than the last time they played.
Iva nudges slightly up the ranks to 32 again.

Can't judge from scores and articles, but from what the facts are it appears Iva had a decent event... ˇVAMOS! :)
