SO: did Ana play well or did Domi fail?

Ana have big non-playing pause before this match, she is without coach, and Dominika is red-hot right now (last week Stanford winner), so we should not to be cruel to Ana because that unexpected 1st set lose.

I still thinking that Ana will find in next couple weeks some more interesting things to do than to seriously compete at Rogers Cup (blacklisted) or Cincinnati (just 2 weeks before slam), so this Carlsbad event is crucial for Ana's USO preparation, and if she lose today it will be almost tragic for hers summer plans and goals.

Set 1: 6-4
Ivanovic struggled to find her forehand and first serve, at first, but when she found her rythm aces and winners came pouring in. Cibulkova pressed hard, though, and was more mentally tough, and could produce many constructive winners, also. She won the set with passing-shot winner after Ivanovic had volleyed back 3 times in a row. It was a very competitive set.

Set 2: 3-6

Ivanovic becomes more proactive rigjt at the start, and begins to take balls earlier on the rise, robbing time off of Cibulkova's strokes. The crowd was behind her, obviously. And she looked motivated. You know Ivanovic is in control when she can hit a backhand down the line winner of a return, under pressure. If it had been any other opponent, Ivanovic would have cruised this set 6-1, but Cibulkova would not give in: het first serve really pops, for a player of her stature; and she fights like a bull, hitting balls early, dictating most points on Ivanovic's serve. Ivanovic won a lot of the shorter rallies on Cibulkova's serve, while Cibulkova won the longer ones. In the last game of second set, Ivanovic defends better, using a wicked backhand slice, and hits a lot harder off her forehand, and was helped with a little bit of luck; she won the set point with a net-cord winner. Ajede trumps Pome, literally; there were a lot of Ajedes (Idemo, too).

Set 3: 2-6
Cibulkova'd first serve went downhill, while Ivanovic's high-level ,play was steady. She really looked baffled by what Ivanovic was giving to her. But when serving out the match, Ivanovic's serve gone south. Fotunately, Cibulkova, too, doublefaulted, and Ivanovic is still great on return the match ends with Ivanovic's classic happy squeal. It was a very exhillriating match.
Great review. Did you see the match?

I think it was the Montreal Tournament Director that she had the troubles, I think the Toronto One she is fine with him.

She even put a link in her Facebook inviting us to go there.

Ana's opponent in 2nd round will be Coco Vandeweghe. Coco served really well in 1st round I heard that, but if everything goes well, Ana should really win in two sets and get her place in quarterfinals.

No, it's a three paragraph review of the drug-induced hallucination he had earlier today.

How much did Cibulkova tank this ?

Casual observers would make the mistake of thinking this thread was satire, but no it's actually the reality of the Ivanovic fanbase.

From what we heard it was good match. Cibulkova was tough at start, but Ana kept her motivation and was getting better as match progresed.

Yes! Montreal's tournament director denied her a wildcard in 2010 as Ana was struggling for form. Only to offer her one a week later after she beat Azarenka in Cincinnati. Which she declined of course!

Anyway, good win Ana! Hope she can build on this and find some form this summer!
