Ana Ivanovic continues with her bad game, she was defeated in marathon quarterfinals of the China Open by Zheng Jie 7-6 (4), 2-6, 6-4.
The match lasted almost three hours, filled with exciting rallies, service breaks, strings of deuce games and unforced errors.
This is second time this year that Zheng beat Ana, first time was in third round match at Wimbledon earlier this season where Zheng won in straight sets, 61 64.
Next tournament for Ana is Kremlin Cup in Moscow from 6th to 12th October. We wish Ana more luck there!
