ng>Ana Ivanovic advances at Rogers Cup
Ana Ivanovic defeated Magdalena Rybarikova 2-6, 6-3, 6-2 to advance to the second round of the Rogers Cup.
Ivanovic rallied from a sluggish start and overcame seven double-faults in the win over Rybarikova.
“I felt my movement, my shots, everything was working well, but I was trying to play a little too safe, I think,” Ivanovic said. “She’s a good player, and she was playing really aggressive and dominant.”
Ivanovic will play Lucie Safarova, who defeated Kaia Kanepi 6-4, 7-6 (3). Alla Kudryavtseva defeated Julie Coin 6-2, 1-6, 7-6 (6).
Aleksandra Wozniak will face Alisa Kleybanova later Tuesday. Wozniak also will play doubles after her singles match.
