What better place to start playing good than at a big tournament. After beating Guisard easily (6:3, 6:0
), Ana beat the 3rd seed of qualies, Maria Elena Camerin (WTA #118, career-high #41), 6:1, 6:4
For a place in the main draw she'll face the 7th seed Stephanie Cohen-Aloro (WTA #187, career-high #61). They've played once before, on some challenger back in '05, and the French won easily - 2 & 4. But that was a season which Stephanie finished at #105, while Ana's '05 ended at #309, so I'd expect this match to be quite a bit different.
Qualifiers will play Safarova, (8)Cibulkova, (4)Kvitova and Makarova.
