The 2010 Rogers Cup in Montreal is favoring Canadian players over 2006 champion Ana Ivanovic when it comes to awarding wildcards and so the Grand Slam winner will have to play qualifying to get a spot in the main draw.
The brighter perspective is that Ana will add some spice to the qualifying rounds, but you have to feel some sadness when you read what Ana said two years ago: “In two years I’m gonna come back here and try to be eager to win again. Hopefully, you know, I’ll still have the good support.”
The former world No.1 Ivanovic is now ranked 65th, and her win-loss record this season is 11-12. (source: Forty Deuce)
