Ana Ivanovic receives wildcard for Bali year-end tournament

Ana Ivanovic asked for a wildcard for the Commonwealth Bank Tournament of Champions and the organizers were glad to make her the first wildcard pick. The Serb played the tournament last year and won the title in the final against Alisa Kleybanova, who is now battling a serious illness of Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

The $600,000 Bali tournament gathers eight best performers of the season from International-level events. November 3-6 this year will see the third edition of the tournament. The inaugural Bali was won by Aravane Rezai. (photo: sr_cranks)

    This seems a little too early considering she can qualify directly by defending her title in Linz. Unless she is planning to withdraw from Linz?

    Sam, on her website, her next tournament is Luxembourg, October 17. But now that she’s injured who knows…

    She probably should withdraw, it is not worth risking Bali over Linz. I wish she played so much. From the highlights of the match against Vera it looks like Ana has started to get back to her best form, it would be sad if she couldn´t continue that because of injuries.
