Ana Ivanovic’s second-round match against Alisa Kleybanova was delayed by rain, but the inevitable was apparently waiting for Ivanovic and the former French Open champion lost with a stunning 6-3 6-0 score, with sets lasting 33 minutes each.
This has been Ivanovic’s earliest exit at the French Open ever! However, losing to Kleybanova is nothing new to the former world No.1 Ivanovic, as it has happened three of four times they played.
Kleybanova’s victory over Ivanovic at the 2010 French Open is not an upset, since the Russian is seeded 28th and Ivanovic’s low ranking, No.42 at present, ensured she wasn’t seeded. Both players had 6 break points in the match: Kleybanova converted five, while Ivanovic converted only one.
Kleybanova reached her first third round at the French Open, where she will play either eighth seed Agnieszka Radwanska or Yaroslava Shvedova. (photo: sr_cranks)
