Ana Ivanovic beat Sara Errani at the French Open
Ana Ivanovic, Roland Garros defending champion, defeated Sara Errani 7-6 6-3 to reach the second round.
Ivanovic needed two hours and two minutes to break Errani’s resilience to set up a meeting with the winner of the match between Camille Pin and Tamarine Tamasugarn.
Ivanovic threw away 10 break points in the first set and was stretched into a tiebreak which she claimed after 72 minutes.
She staved off four break points in her opening service game of the second set before moving 5-1 up and although Errani pulled a break back, the 21-year-old Ivanovic wrapped up the win on her third match point with a smash.
