Ana Ivanovic beats Vera Zvonareva for a place in Indian Wells semis


Top seed Ana Ivanovic defeated Vera Zvonareva 6-1 6-4 to reach the last four of the Pacific Life Open and join Maria Sharapova and Svetlana Kuznetsova there.

Playing her fourth quarterfinal in five tournaments this year, world No.2 Ivanovic broke twelfth-seeded Zvonareva four times and lost only one of her own service games. In the Indian Wells quarterfinal the Serb produced one of her best ever first serve percentages of 73, and powerful groundstrokes enabled her to defeat world No.21 Zvonareva without much difficulty.

If Jelena Jankovic beats Lindsay Davenport in the remaining quarterfinal, we will have an all-Serbian semifinal at Indian Wells.
