This match had fans at the edge of their seats, and Ana on her toes. “The first set was very tight from both sides. I was really happy to hold my nerves in the end of that first set and then sort of pick up my intensity and rhythm in the second,” commented Ana, according to her official website.
The former Roland Garros champion is on fire and seems poised to reclaim her 2008 title. She faces the No. 23 seeded Lucie Safarova in the third round.
Ana is continually advancing with the use of her YONEX EZONE Ai racquet. In a video interview while in Madrid, she praised the racquet’s control, and how it grants her better spin on the ball. It goes without saying that the EZONE Ai also provides its users great speed, giving pros like Ana the speed they need to get ahead.
In other matches on day 5, YONEX Player Julia Glushko (EZONE Xi, PTGSPN), defeated Kirsten Flipkens; and Kimiko Date-Krumm (S-FIT, PTGSPN) showed a strong performance in doubles with her partner Barbora Zahlavova Strycova. The pair was victorious over Anabel Medina Garrigues/Yaroslava Shevedova.
