The Rampaging Ana Ivanovic

STANFORD, CA - JULY 26: Ana Ivanovic of Serbia looks on against Alisa Kleybanova of Russia during Day 1 of the Bank of the West Classic at Stanford University on July 26, 2010 in Stanford, California. (Photo by Jed Jacobsohn/Getty Images)
Good to see the possibly reborn Ana Ivanovic crush her nemesis Kleybanova and finally make a move back to redemption - or prepare to crush her fans' dreams yet again. She'll play Bartoli in a swat-a-thon later today. Sharapova, Kirilenko and Vika already swept through joining Dementieva, Stosur, Wickmayer and Radwanska the Greater in the quarters. We're already out of Americans though with the last, Oudin, now gone. But to be fair there were few locals entered and WCs were mainly given to top players (and Ana) instead of possibly decent locals.

Forty Deuce even more essential reading then usual from Stanford. Can we ask her why there's no TV coverage?

Larsson dominated a slumping Cirstea in Istanbul and still managed to lose, Rybarikova got Pavlyuchenkovaed, Groth and Rodionova continued their post-immigratory success and Schiavone wallowed in her post-Major slump. See Sam - it could be worse.

Querrey and Lopez won in LA, Gulbis lost and a bunch of people played in Gstaad. Good for them.

Jelena Dokic continues her fight for a Get Fit book deal by playing a 75K in Bucharest. She beat qualifier Jurak in 3 sets. She'll play Thorpe next in the next round.
