Ana Ivanovic @ Sony Ericsson Pre-Wimbledon Player Party

Top seed Ana Ivanovic struggles to adjust to grass game

ONE by one, Wimbledon’s catwalk queens are walking the plank.
Just 24 hours after former champion Maria Sharapova made a swift and early exit, top seed Ana Ivanovic was sent spinning out of the third round.

Whether she was feeling the effects from her recent French Open victory was unclear but the Serbian struggled with her serve in an uncharacteristically erratic performance.

China’s Jie Zheng, who beat Britain’s Elena Baltacha in the first round, duly took advantage with a 6-1, 6-4 victory that was as convincing as it was surprising.

Ivanovic had a reprieve after surviving two match points in her previous match and admitted the toll on her maiden Grand Slam win in Paris might have played a role. [Scotsman]

She's still young and adjusting to increased attention off the court. She'll look as good in public appearances as she does playing tennis as she ages.
