ANA IVANOVIC IN HOPMAN CUP 2013.
Facing a fellow Roland Garros champion, Ana Ivanovic extended her perfect career record against Francesca Schiavone with a relatively routine 6-0 6-4 victory to open top-seeded Serbia’s Hyundai Hopman Cup 2013 campaign.
Clenching her fist, the former world No.1 fought off two break points to survive a tense opening game and parlayed the momentum into two break points of her own.
“I think it’s been an amazing start,” said Ivanovic. “I think the first game was a bit crucial, I managed to hold out after seeing a few break points and then I really got into the match and I didn’t do much wrong in that first set and in the second set she got tougher, she started playing better and I still tried to be unrest and I’m really happy I managed to win today, it really means a lot.”
