Ana set for Stuttgart

Ana has entered the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart during 26 April-2 May. It will be the second time she has played in Stuttgart, after she made her debut there in 2007, but the first time she has played the tournament since it switched to indoor clay.

The player field is set to be very strong, with eight of the world's current top 10 entered for the Premier $700,000 event.
 
"I'm looking forward to playing in Germany again," said Ana. "They obviously have a great tennis tradition there, and one of my best ever experiences in tennis came in Berlin, when I won the tournament there a few years ago.
 
"I've been to Stuttgart a couple of times. During my last visit there, in 2007, I actually played one of my best ever matches, against Patty Schnyder.
 
"Back then the tournament was played on indoor hard courts towards the end of the season. I am very interested to see what it feels like to play on indoor clay, and the entry list this year is very strong as usual."
