Ivanovic wins 2nd title of year at Monterrey Open
MONTERREY, Mexico (AP) — Ana Ivanovic won an all-Serbian final at the Monterrey Open on Sunday, beating Jovana Jaksic 6-2, 6-1 for her second title of the year.
Ivanovic, the 2008 French Open champion, also won the ASB Classic in Auckland, New Zealand, to start the year. It’s the first time since 2010 she has captured multiple titles in a season.
Jaksic, playing in her first WTA Tour final, started off strongly against the second-seeded Ivanovic, breaking her at love and winning the first six points of the match. But Ivanovic reeled off 16 of the next 17 points to take control of the match and finish it off in one hour.
It’s the 13th title of Ivanovic’s career.
