Ana Ivanovic is showing some signs of consistent improvement under the watchful eye of Nigel Sears. While there is still more than a few issues with her ball toss to iron out, Ivanovic showed some guts and focus as she fought back from a set down to beat Julia Goerges 3-6, 6-3, 6-4.
Since she won the French Open in 2008 Ana has failed get beyond the fourth round in any Grand Slam. To break this streak and make the quarterfinals Ana will have to make her way past the noisy Victoria Azarenka.
Ana and Vika have played each other four times with each winning twice. Vika most recently beat Ana in the fourth round of Roland Garros.
