Ana vs Pennetta

Ana vs Pennetta

Ana takes on world No.12 Flavia Pennetta in the third round of the Sony Open Tennis in Miami on Saturday. It will be the fifth meeting between the pair, with Ana leading the head-to-head series 4-0.

Despite Ana's historical superiority, it appears to be a 50-50 match-up, for Pennetta is in outstanding form: the Italian shocked the tennis world by winning the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells last week, beating top seed Na Li in the semi-finals and No.2 Agnieszka Radwanska in the final. What's more, she beat both players in straight sets.

"She's kind of on-fire at the moment," commented Ana. "It's going to be a big challenge. Her confidence must be very high and it's a really tough match, especially in the third round."

The match is scheduled to take place at 11am local time (4pm Central European Time) on the Grandstand court. 

Ana was in doubles action on Friday alongside Kirsten Flipkens. The wild card pairing lost 7-5, 6-4 to the Slovak-Czech duo of Janette Husarova and Iveta Melzer.
