Ana Ivanovic vs. Agnieszka Radwanska was a highly-anticipated Miami encounter as we all wanted to see whether Ivanovic could follow up her second-round victory over qualifier Pauline Parmentier (yes, nowadays we count such wins when it comes to Ana) with a victory over Radwanska – and, unfortunately, the answer is “no”.
Radwanska is ranked ninth, seeded sixth at the Sony Ericsson Open, and is coming off her semifinal appearance at Indian Wells last week. However, Ivanovic had a 3-1 record against the Pole and with the new coach by her side we were hopeful Radwanska could be a surmountable obstacle. Still, the Serb, who was believe it or not seeded at the Sony Ericsson Open, fell to Radwanska 7-5 7-5. (photo: Twenty90seven)
