Ivanovic scrapes past Woz­ni­acki to make Mon­ter­rey fi­nal

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

In a clash of the for­mer World No. 1s, it was Ana Ivanovic that came out on top with a very tight 7-6(5) 6-4 win over Caro­line Woz­ni­acki.

The num­ber two-seeded Ivanovic re­cov­ered from a break and 3-1 one down in the open­ing stanza to pull level and take con­trol of the match - de­spite Woz­ni­acki’s best ef­fort’s to rat­tle her op­po­nent - be­fore seal­ing the set in a tie-break.

How­ever, things didn’t go quite ac­cord­ing to plan for Ivanovic in the sec­ond set as she ap­peared to lose her fo­cus. The Ser­bian raced into a 4-0 lead, but was guilty of a num­ber of er­rors as she let Woz­ni­acki draw level at four games all.

She soon re­gained her com­po­sure, though, break­ing her op­po­nent to serve out the match in style.
