- - IVANOVIC 6-1 5-7 3-6 – MATCH ERRANI! She saves her best for last with some fierce serving and, as Ivanovic goes long with a forehand drive, it’s triple match point to the Italian – the first is dropped as Ivanovic powers one into the corner, but an unforced error from the Serb – wide when dominating the next rally – sees Errani through. Next for her is the winner of Radwanska v Kuznetsova. Women's draw
- - IVANOVIC 6-1 5-7 3-5 - Ivanovic is serving to stay in the tournament now. She's being made to work for it but a big smash brings her to 30-30. But it's deuce now as Errani dominates the next point... But Ivanovic battles back and holds to stay in the match for now.
- - IVANOVIC 6-1 5-7 2-4 - BREAK! Errani has broken Ivanovic again as the Serb continues to struggle with her serve. Having been so far ahead in the first set this is a sadly familiar implosion from Ivanovic, who is sitting deeper and deeper and moving less freely than before.
- - IVANOVIC 6-1 5-7 1-1 - BREAK! But every time Ivanovic shows her class, she blows up and does so again with some horrendous serving that sees her double fault to a break. An implosion.
- - IVANOVIC 6-1 5-7 1-0 - BREAK! Excellent start to the final set by Ana, who has two break points and takes the second with some energetic baseline rallying and a fine forehand off the line. A fist-pump from the Serb. She has to hold though, which was a problem in the second set!
- - IVANOVIC 6-1 5-7 BREAK AND SET! Ivanovic needs to hold serve to take the second set to a tie-break. She's forced on to deuce though as she undercooks a drop shot, allowing Errani to flick it past her. And the Serb has a nightmare on her next two serves, Errani able to break and take the set! A third it is then.
- - IVANOVIC 4-4 BREAK! This set is getting a bit silly as Ivanovic breaks back, both girls struggling with their first serves; now back with serve.
- - IVANOVIC 4-2 BREAK! And once more a game is taken against serve as Errani regains the advantage much to the delight of those favouring the underdog. Sloppy again from Ana though, barely able to get a first serve in.
- - IVANOVIC 6-1 2-3 BREAK! Ivanovic gets her act together and peppers some varied returns around Errani to break back at the first time of asking.
- - IVANOVIC 6-1 1-3 BREAK! Good start to Errani in this second set, stopping the rot with a pair of holds and a vital break! A double fault from Ivanovic in there. Losing focus after dominating the first set.
- - IVANOVIC 6-1 SET! Ivanovic brings up three set points by meeting Errani's drop-shot with a fabulous lob on the run - the Italian makes it but pings the drive wide. The Serb drops the first set point with a weak backhand to net, but she takes the next one as Errani spins one wide.
- - IVANOVIC 5-1 BREAK! Ivanovic is having fun now as she breaks Errani with relaive ease, her movement superior and her shot-making as clean as I've seen for a while. Serving for the first set.
- - IVANOVIC 4-1 - BREAKx2! But the Italian breaks back immediately as Ivanovic allows herself to be bullied off her second serve. However - as is often the way in women's clay tennis - Ana responds with her second consecutive break, some woeful serving from Errani and a cute drop shot from the Serb to wow the fans on Suzanne Lenglen. And she follows that with only the second hold so far this match - to love - to take a commanding lead in this first set.
- - IVANOVIC 2-0 - BREAK! A good start for the Serbian former world number one, who holds serve before firing in some crisp returns as Errani puts in a few errors for good measure, including a double fault.
