Ana falls to Bartoli

Ana falls to Bartoli

Ana slumped to a disappointing 6-2, 6-1 defeat to world No.14 Marion Bartoli in the second round of the Toray Pan Pacific in Tokyo. The 22-year-old was a shadow of the player who had beaten Alisa Kleybanova so convincingly just 24 hours earlier.

Morning rain in Tokyo caused uncertainty for the players, and at one stage Ana was scheduled to play in the early evening indoors. However, the rain cleared and enabled the 22-year-old to take to Court 2 in gloomy conditions.

Ana's play at times mirrored the bleak weather, as she netted far too many balls, although Frenchwoman Bartoli was excellent and never gave Ana time to settle. Indeed she broke in the opening game.

Ana was unable to find her range and fell to defeat in 78 minutes.

She now heads to Beijing for the China Open.
