Props to Ana Ivanovic for getting through her first-round match against the hard-hitting Alisa Kleybanova at the Bank of the West Classic, happening this week in Stanford, Calif. (Vid: Ana’s presser)
The Serbian has had a rough couple of months, losing super-early on the clay of Madrid and Roland Garros (to Kleybanova), plus on grass at ‘s-Hertogenbosch and Wimbledon. Her next opponent at this hardcourt event will be the winner of Bartoli vs. Harkleroad (Draw: Singles).
And speaking of, Nick will covering the event on-site tomorrow, so look out for tweets and posts. (Welcome to California!)
