Ana-Groenefeld on fourth

Ana-Groenefeld on fourth

Ana's third round match against Anna-Lena Groenefeld at the JPMorgan Chase Open will take place sometime after 3.30pm local time today (12.30am Friday Central European Time). It is scheduled as the fourth match on the Stadium Court.

Ana has played the 21-year-old, who is seeded sixth here and ranked three places above her, only once before and it was in juniors. The pair met at the Italian Open in 2002 when Ana was 14 and Groenefeld was 16. The German won 6-3, 6-0 at the clay court event.

Reflecting on her 7-6, 7-5 victory over Mara Santangelo in the last round yesterday, Ana said: "It was a difficult match. Mentally it is tough to play her because she is very unpredictable, she does not allow you much rhythm. Winning a tough match like this is very satisfying."
