Ana seeded 21 in Australian Open

Serbian Tennis sensation Ana Ivanovic was on Thursday seeded 21 in women's singles of the Australian Open starting Monday.

This is the 4th time that the 18-year old, world ranked 21, will start her campaign in a Grand Slam event as a seeded player.

World number ones Roger Federer and Lindsay Davenport have been named top seeds for the Australian Open.

Davenport is top seed for the second successive year after claiming six titles in 2005. The American won this tournament in 2000 but lost in last year's final to Serena Williams.

Belgium's Kim Clijsters has been named as the second seed despite battling a hip injury which could yet force her to withdraw. France's Amelie Mauresmo is seeded third, ahead of Russia's Maria Sharapova and Mary Pierce of France.
