Her milkshake really does bring all the boys to the yard.
And I mean ALL the boys.
Yup, Novak was snuggled up in Ana's box (never not funny!) as she played a solid match, with flashes of brilliance here and there, to beat Kimiko 64 62. The serve was ok but the story was her forehand which looked better than I've seen this year, particularly on the return. Let's not get too excited, Ana fans. It wasn't exactly an inspiring performance. But it was a win and if you think about it, it's her biggest win of the year.
To add awesome syrup to awesome pancakes, Strycova upset Petra today. So Ana gets her next.
Like I said, let's not get too excited. But we are most certainly allowed to flash a smile.
