The Generali Ladies Linz was the last tournament Ana Ivanovic won and two years later the Serb ended her title drought by winning the same event and in a pretty impressive fashion – without dropping a set and by winning the final against 47th-ranked Patty Schynder in just 47 minutes.
Both players had a 100% conversion of break points, but Ivanovic had six such chances compared to Schnyder’s two. After just 18 minutes of play Ivaanovic served for the first set at 5-1 and before you knew it she won the whole match 6-1 6-2.
The 2010 Generali Ladies Linz is Ivanovic’s ninth career title. The world No.29 has earned $37,000 and 280 ranking points with her successful showing at the Austrian tournament. (photo: Ralf Reinecke)
GO ANA!!! she was amazing…she’s definitely winning a slam next year!
start of another succesful carrer is hopefully here 🙂
Bravo Ana! She played like a top 5 player in the finals! Congrats to her! I wish her all the best in her future career. Next year will be a “make it back to the top” year hopefully where she will win bigger titles (maybe even go far in some GS)! All the best to our Anci!
Bravo Ana ! Unfortunately she has decided to play doubles in Luxembourg before accepted WC for Linz so she will probably be exhausted. Anyway I hope (expect) that she will achieve good results in Luxembourg and Bali.
It was so good watching her this week 🙂
I agree, she was the best replacement possible for Serena Williams. I only watched one match, when she played Goerges and she played as in the “good old days”. This must gave her a lot of confidence for the future tournaments so hopefully we’ll see some of her best tennis at the biggest stages soon.
It has been a pleasure watching Ana play this week. She did so well and this title has been a long time coming. I’m very proud of her. Long may it continue 🙂
Ajde Ana! I am so “trilled”. It’s been 2 years in the waiting but I am happy that Ana’s hard work has finally payed off. Hopefully this is just the beginning of many good things to come for Ana. 🙂
Great tournament for Ana. I see she is now working with Steffi Graf’s old coach Heinz Gunthardt.
