Ivanovic suffers first ever double bagel
MONTREAL: Former world number one Ana Ivanovic suffered her first ever double bagel loss, crashing out of the WTA Montreal tournament after losing 6-0, 6-0 to Roberta Vinci on Thursday.
Vinci needed just 44 minutes to oust the 11th seeded Ivanovic, who had three game points in the match but never converted.
Ivanovic had game point serving at 0-4 in the first set and two more serving 0-2 in the second.
“I really struggled to find my rhythm out there,” the Serb said. “It came as a surprise a little bit because I was practising really well.
“I was struggling to find my feet and get two consecutive balls in the court. Against players like Roberta who don’t make many errors, it’s always going to be tough to win like that. — AFP
