Jelena wins against Ana in Madrid
Belgrade/Madrid, May 18. 2010 (Serbia Today) - The world’s number four player in the women’s tennis tour, Jelena Jankovic, beat Ana Ivanovic 4-6 6-4 6-1 in the second round of the tournament in Madrid on Tuesday night. Jelena now takes on home player Anabel Medina Garrigues. Jankovic and Ivanovic played out a match which lasted 110 minutes. Although her serve game is still plaguing her, Ivanovic was much quicker than at some recent matches. Jelena was lackluster in the opening set and Ana took the set 6-4 after some nervous shots from Jankovic went astray. The second set was much closer and both Serbian players took turns in the lead and domination on court. At 3-3 in the second set, Jelena changed her strategy and forced Ana into errors, as Jelena went on a string of four games to take the second set. Ana was visibly disrupted by the loss of the second set and was considerably below her best in the decider. Jankovic now takes on Anabel Medina Garrigues, who beat France’s Marion Bartoli in the second round 6-2 6-0. The final at the Mutua Madrileña tournament is on 16 May and total prize money is $4.5 million.
