I don't know what Ivanovic is on .. she usually just folds and plays like she's just supposed to lose and go away against serena .. I mean she hadn't ever even taken a set from her before ..
I wanted stosur vs. williams because that would have a better chance of being a decent match(or so we thought).. but the more I saw of stosur/ivanovic, the more I thought 'well damn if Ivanovic can play like how she's playing against stosur then 'game on' against serena .. against stosur she was absolutely on point drilling nasty strokes left and right .. somehow she continued it against serena and there ya go, she ends up winning ..
I didn't see her play years ago when she was world #1, but I wonder if this was her game back then .. definitely a legit #1 if it was .. cool to see ivanovic break through after not having been able to beat serena in 4 tries ..
in serena's defense, she did look kind of different out there .. very slow .. as if injured which apparently she was .. but I'm not taking any credit away from ivanovic .. she took it to her .. she had a lot more winners
