Mattek-Sands Sends Ivanovic Tumbling Out



http://www.wtatennis.com/news/articl...c-tumbling-out
Quote:
LONDON, England - Bethanie Mattek-Sands caused the latest upset at this year's Wimbledon by knocking out No.7 seed Ana Ivanovic, 6-3, 6-4, on Wednesday evening.

Twenty-four hours after the exits of two of last year's breakthrough acts, Simona Halep and Eugenie Bouchard, Ivanovic's dreams of Wimbledon glory were dashed by a swashbuckling display of serve and volley tennis from Mattek-Sands.

"It's great. I came through qualifying and I'm feeling great on the grass," Mattek-Sands said. "I've played a lot of matches - been doing really well in doubles with my friend Lucie [Safarova] - but this is my first big win of the year.

"I'm feeling really good, playing well, feeling good and just enjoying the moment."

Due to her penchant for making a fashion statement, Mattek-Sands has rarely gone unnoticed at the most conservative of tennis venues. However, this time it was all about the tennis, the American displaying poise, purpose and panache to register her best win since returning from injury at the end of last year.

"I think the hip surgery and being out that long really gave me a perspective on playing and enjoying tennis," she added. "Last year I was watching all these matches in my house - and with this weather I feel like I'm back in Florida!

"Ana's a really nice person, she's a champion, so it was a really good win for me. Just beating someone like Ana, who had a great French Open - she made the semifinals - is a Top 10 player. I take every win, put it under my belt and keep going.

"I'm here to play my game, I play aggressive and that's what I'm going to do going forward."

Mattek-Sands To Donate To Floods


Quote:
HOBART, Australia - Last year, she donated a portion of her WTA prize money to the victims of the Nashville flooding. Over the next few weeks, she will do it all over again in Australia. Bethanie Mattek-Sands has pledged 5% of her prize money from the Moorilla Hobart International and the Australian Open to Queensland floods, where waters have forced evacuation of thousands of people.

Mattek-Sands, currently America's No.3 player behind the Williams sisters, is playing in Hobart this week, unseeded in singles but seeded No.1 in doubles.

"Australia has always been one of my favorite places to visit. I have always been received very kindly," Mattek-Sands commented from Hobart. "Just like the flood disaster in the US, there are a lot of people that lost everything they owned, and it's going to be a long road to some sense of normalcy. I want to continue to use my international platform as a WTA tennis player to help those who are in need, no matter if they are right next door or across an ocean."

The floods, which began in December, have primarily affected the state of Queensland. At least 22 towns and over 200,000 people have been affected. Eleven deaths have been attributed to the floods so far, including two teenagers.

Last year, Mattek-Sands gave 5% of her prize money from the French Open through the US Open to Nashville flood relief through the organization Hands On Nashville. "Nashville is where it all started for me in my tennis career," she said last year. "The game of tennis has given me so much and I am grateful I have the opportunity to help those in need. I really hope I can make a difference."

Mattek-Sands travelled to Hobart after spending the week in Perth, where she and John Isner teamed up to win the Hopman Cup for the United States.
