Ana to take on US Open qualifier

Ana has been drawn to face a qualifier in the first round of the US Open, which begins in New York on Monday.

If she overcomes that challenge the 24-year-old will take on either either Sweden's Sofia Arvidsson or Kimiko Date-Krumm of Japan in round two. 22nd seed Francesca Schiavone is a potential third round opponent.

Former world No.1 and eighth seed Caroline Wozniacki is Ana's projected opponent in round four, while fourth seed and hot favourite Serena Williams could await in the quarter-finals.

Potential semi-final opponents include second seed Agnieszka Radwanska and No.6 Angelique Kerber.

The leading seeds in the top half of the draw, whom Ana cannot face until the final, are No.1 Victoria Azarenka, No.3 Maria Sharapova, No.5 Petra Kvitova and No.7 Samantha Stosur, who is the defending champion.
