Ana's Wimbledon comes to an end Jun 30th 2014

Ana’s Wimbledon campaign ended in the third round as she fell 6-4, 3-6, 6-1 to world No.19 Sabine Lisicki. The match, which started on Saturday evening, was interrupted twice and underwent a momentum switch at least as that eventually saw the German emerge victorious after one hour and 51 minutes of play.
 

Ana down a set as bad light halts play Jun 28th 2014

Ana’s third round clash with world No.19 Sabine Lisicki at the Wimbledon Championships has been suspended overnight at 1-1 in the second set. The match didn’t start before 8pm local time due rain in London and was halted shortly after the German had taken the opening set 6-4.
 

Ana vs Lisicki Jun 27th 2014

Ana takes on world No.19 Sabine Lisicki in the third round of The Championships on Saturday. It will be the just the second meeting between the pair.
 
Ana won their first encounter, at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart earlier this year. However, that match was on clay, which appears to be the German’s weakest surface.
 
24-year-old Lisicki, with her big serve and dangerous forehand, reached the Wimbledon final 12 months ago, where she lost to Marion Bartoli. En route she beat 17-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams.

Ana into round three Jun 26th 2014

Ana secured a place in the third round of The Championships at Wimbledon after beating world No.66 Jie Zheng from China 6-4, 6-0 in impressive fashion. The 26-year-old produced a brilliant performance that included twenty winners and just nine unforced errors during the 61 minute match.

However, as it may have been predicted prior to the match, Zheng started brightly on court No.3: the Chinese held sweet memories from beating Ana at this event six years ago and she clearly entered today’s contest with confidence.

Ana vs Zheng Jun 25th 2014

Ana takes on world No.66 Jie Zheng of China in the second round of The Championships at Wimbledon on Thursday. It will be the fifth meeting between the pair, with the head-to-head series tied at 2-2.

Zheng defeated Ana here in 2008, when Ana was the top seed. She added another victory in Beijing a few months later, but Ana won their last meeting convincingly - a 6-3, 6-0 win at the 2012 US Open.
