Ana battles into round two

Ana battles into round two

Ana fought her way past world No.65 Urszula Radwanska. The 26-year-old triumphed 4-6, 6-3, 6-3 in the first round of the Abierto Monterrey.

Second seeded Ana gave an inconsistent performance against a player whom she trailed 2-1 in head-to-head meetings.

After splitting the opening two sets, Ana moved 2-0 ahead in the decider and looked to be moving inexorably towards victory.

However, Radwanska drew level at 3-3, causing Ana and the majority of the crowd some anxiety.

When it mattered most, Ana cut out the errors and won three straight games to clinch victory.

Ana will take on Canadian qualifier Aleksandra Wozniak in the second round on Thursday.
