Ana loses in three

Ana lost in the third round of the Acura Classic to world No.31 Anna Chakvetadze. The 18-year-old went down 4-6, 6-4, 6-1.

Ana started confidently and held two break points in the opening game. She could not convert either and the Russian took a 3-0 lead, before Ana battled back to level at 3-3. She broke in the ninth game and served out the set.

There were no breaks in the second set until Ana pounced in the fifth game. However, she was then broken twice as Chakvetadze levelled the match.

Just as she had done in Warsaw earlier this year, the Russian then broke early in the third set and closed out the match.

Ana is in doubles action later alongside Maria Kirilenko. They play third seeds Daniela Hantuchova and Ai Sugiyama.
