Ana Ivanovic moves into third round of Australian Open

Ana Ivanovic at 2009 Australian OpenFifth seed Ana Ivanovic advanced to the third round of the Australian Open with a 6-3 6-2 victory over world No.169 Alberta Brianti of Italy.

Good news is that Ivanovic displayed much more solid play than in her first-round match against Julia Goerges.

Brianti, who by the way looks a lot like Justine Henin, was making her first appearance in the second round of a Grand Slam.

The third day of the Australian Open has just begun and two other seeds also advanced. No.10 seed Nadia Petrova defeated Sania Mirza 6-3 6-2, while seed No.25 Kaia Kanepi beat Patricia Mayr 6-3 6-1. (photo: Getty Images)
