Ana cruises into quarters

Ana cruises into quarters

Ana advanced to the last eight of the Abierto Monterrey Presentado Por Afirme as she moved past world No.172 Aleksandra Wozniak 6-4, 6-2 in the second round.

Ana made an assertive start and broke the Canadian in the second game but what followed was a frustrating contest for Ana, in which the second seed became pre-occupied by a number of contentious line calls.

She led by a break twice in the opening set, but surrendered her advantage on both occasions as the pair were level at 4-4. Nonetheless, the 26-year-old re-found her focus just in time as she scored the decisive break in the tenth game, clinching the set with a phenomenal forehand return winner.

The second set was slightly better and although Ana lost serve twice, she broke her opponent on all four occasions in the set to finish the task in 69 minutes.

Ana will take on sixth seed Magdalena Rybarikova in the quarter-finals on Friday.
