This match heads the Day 5 card for women. Aussie Samantha Stosur (17) should have strong and vocal support but Ana Ivanovic (14) has lots of fans wherever she plays. Throughout her career, Stosur has had moments of brilliance and moments of despair. She has the US Open title under her belt and a runner-up win In Paris but she tends to play around her backhand, exposing too much of the court.
Ivanovic is also erratic. The former French Open champ and runner-up here is resurrecting her serve and her game. Both these women are in outstanding physical condition. Look for the upset here with Stosur riding her serve to victory.
Ana Ivanovic is favourite with bookies though.
