 Ana Ivanovic WTA Tour1 Ana Ivanovic vs Caroline Wozniacki Preview – WTA Monterrey 2014 SF

 

The highest two seeds remaining Monterrey Open are scheduled to meet on Saturday evening, as Serbian No. 2 Ana Ivanovic and world No. 14 Caroline Wozniacki clash for a spot in the final. This marks the sixth time these two competitors will meet on the professional tour, with Ivanovic leading the head-to-head series 3-2.

Ana Ivanovic stormed to a rapid lead against Rybarikova, taking the first set 6-1 in 31 minutes. Ivanovic was relatively consistent on her service games early on, winning 65% of 1st serve points, 55% of 2nd serve points, and managed to save 5/6 break points in the process. While she began the match in fantastic fashion, Ivanovic would quickly collapse in the second set, dropping all of her service games to surrender the second set 6-0. She would regroup in the third set, raise her serve percentage and fight her way to a 6-2 win in the final set.

World No. 14 Caroline Wozniacki was faced with two straight set victories in her first couple of matches in Monterrey, yet needed to rally for a three set win against Karolina Pliskova. After losing the first set in a tight tiebreaker, the Danish No. 1 regrouped and found her form in the following two sets, securing the victory 6-7, 6-3, 6-3. This is Wozniacki’s first time appearance at this event and by reaching the final (or possible victory), she could add to her ranking points after her recent slip.

This marks the sixth time these two competitors will meet on the professional tour, with Ivanovic leading the series 3-2. Ivanovic won their most recent contest, but it took place almost two years ago, when both competitors were at different stages of their respective careers. It will be interesting to see who will hold the advantage tomorrow, as they are tied 2-2 in hard court competition.

Prediction: Ana Ivanovic in Three Sets

Could you guys get a new Journalist? Clearly the person writing this does't care about tennis and is not willing to do research to find out the TRUE FACTS before writing an article.


Last time I checked, they are playing in MONTERREY MEXICO, just by that little mistake, it is easy to assume the staff in this page don't know about tennis.


Also, Wozniacki is the 2011 Champion in CHARLESTON (Which you spelled wrong), NOT MONTERREY.  


Clearly, you guys don't have a person reviewing the articles before published. Such a shame

You've got a LOT of facts wrong. First of all they are both playing in MONTERREY,which is on HARD court-so I dont think ''Ivanovic leads the series 1-0 on clay – which could ultimately be the deciding factor.'' really matters... Secondly,Wozniacki is NOT a two time finalist in Monterrey,this is the first time she's playing the event. (also you spelt Charleston wrong ?)
Please do your minimum research before writing a prediction article ?
