Ana Ivanovic, who suffured a major slump in the rankings on Monday, falling from No.8 to No.13 after exiting the French Open in the fourth round as a defending champion, is scheduled to play doubles at the AEGON International.
The 21-year-old has been offered a wildcard into the Eastbourne doubles draw, and will be partnered with Germany’s Sabine Lisicki, ranked 180th in doubles.
Ivanovic hasn’t played a single doubles match on the Tour since last year, during which she played only one, and is currently unranked in doubles. Her career-high doubles ranking was No.50, in Septermber 2006, after having played several tournaments alongside Russian Maria Kirilenko.
