Ana Ivanovic career is finally back on track as she reached the 4th round at the Australian Open 2012. After so many years of hoping and writing on my blog on TennisGrandstand and now on Lawntennisnews I am very pleased to see that Ivanovic is finally going into the second week of a Grand Slam tournament.
It wasn’t easy in the past couple of years to see Ivanovic go down in the early rounds and then watch her play after she had that very emotional break up with golfer Adam Scott. But it is because of Adam Scott that Ivanovic is now more relaxed on the court and more importantly: playing her game!
The stats of Ivanovic at the Australian Open 2012
First Round Lourdes Dominguez Lino 6-0 6-3
Second Round Michaella Krajicek W 6-2 6-3
Third Round Vania King W 6-3 6-4
And Ivanovic will now meet Petra Kvitova in the 4th round. All eyes are on Petra Kvitova making Ivanovic the underdog for this match. And even if Ivanovic loses to Kvitova she can look back on a succesful Australian Open 2012.
It has been a long wait but I am patient and I can see Ana Ivanovic coming back to greatness again with the Australian Open being the first step.
