Ana Ivanovic dismantles Pennetta to progress in Miami
In-form Serbian Ana Ivanovic outclassed recently crowned Indian Wells champion Flavia Pennetta here at the Sony Open in Miami today.

Former World No.1 Ana Ivanovic caused an upset of sorts here at the Sony Open in Miami, as the Serb got one over recently crowned Indian Wells champion Flavia Pennetta.

While she started the match a bit slowly, once she got in her stride Pennetta had absolutely no answer. Hammering 21 winners and 5 aces, the Serbian raced to a 6-4,6-3 win in just an hour and 17 minutes.

After 39 minutes of grueling tennis action, former World No. 1 Ana Ivanovic clinched the first set. The Serbian made a fine comeback from a break down to win the first set against the BNP Paribas Open champion Pennetta. Ivanovic got only 45% of first serve in, hammered 9 winners and also committed more number of unforced errors as compared to the Italian, but in the end - the Serbian played a lot better tennis on crucial points and won the first set.

Riding on the first set’s momentum, Ivanovic broke the Italian early to establish a 3-0 lead in the second set. It was here that Pennetta upped her game as she really needed to after dropping 5 games on the bounce.

She held on to her own serve through sheer determination as the Serb did put her under a lot of pressure, but the quality of the serving from Ivanovic denied her from getting a break of serve to get back into the match.

With a fine inside out forehand, the former World No.1 forced an error from the Italian, taking the match in straight sets.
