Ivanovic beats Kleybanova

Sweet revenge for Serbian tennis star Ana Ivanovic…

Serbia’s Ana Ivanovic is celebrating reaching the last 16 in the Dubai Tennis Championships beating Russia’s Alisa Kleybanova 7-5 6-4. After a bad year in 2008 and early 2009, Ivanovic’s Dubai performance should give her the confidence she needs to turn her career around.

“I was a bit nervous but I believed in my game out there.” Said Ivanovic as she savoured her victory. Her win over Kleybanova keeps Ivanovic on course for what is sure to be an eye-popping quarter-final meeting with Serena Williams, the recently-crowned Australian Open champion and world No 1.
