Ana wins but Serbia level at 1-1

Ana wins but Serbia level at 1-1

Playing her first clay court match in 10 months, Ana defeated world No.28 Mona Barthel 7-6(5), 2-6, 6-2 in the opening rubber of the Germany versus Serbia Fed Cup World Group I Play-Off tie.
 
Serbian No.2 Bojana Jovanovski then lost 7-5, 6-2 to world No.6 Angelique Kerber, as day one ended all square.
 
It was Ana's first win over Barthel in three meetings and exacted a measure of revenge following her defeat to the Germany in Indian Wells last month.

On Sunday Ana takes on Kerber, while Jovanovski faces Barthel, before Vesna Dolonc and Aleksandra Krunic face Anna-Lena Groenfeld and Sabine Lisicki in the potentially tie-deciding doubles rubber.
