Ana vs Kuznetsova

Ana vs Kuznetsova

Following her win over Ursula Radwanska, Ana takes on world No.45 Svetlana Kuznetsova in the third round of the Sony Open in Miami on Sunday. It will be the 12th meeting between the pair, with Ana leading the head-to-head series 7-4.

Despite her ranking, Kuznetsova will offer a stern test to Ana: she defeated 18th seed Ekaterina Makarova 6-4, 6-4 in the second round, and she boasts wins over Caroline Wozniacki (twice), Marion Bartoli and Jelena Jankovic this year.

She is also a former world No.2 and two-time Grand Slam champion.

"Kuzy is obviously one of the best players of the past 10 years," said Ana. "She's very dangerous, no matter what her ranking. We've had some amazing matches in the past."

Most notably, Ana defeated the 27-year-old in the quarter-finals of the 2007 French Open, and in the WTA Championships in Madrid later that year, both times in three sets. Ana also beat the Russian in Miami in her debut year of 2005.
