Dani Falls To Ivanovic
Daniela's Sony Ericsson Open campaign came to a close on Sunday, as she fell to an in-form Ana Ivanovic in the third round of the Premier-level event, 62 76(2). The No.15-seeded Ivanovic came out strong, winning four games in a row from 2-all to take the first set, then breaking to go up 4-3 in the second set. Daniela broke back and stayed on serve with Ivanovic through the tie-break, but some untimely errors gave Ivanovic a 4-0 lead, and the Serb closed it out, 7-2.
Despite the loss, Daniela leaves Miami with an excellent 17-7 record on the year.
Next up for Daniela will be the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart in four weeks.
