Melbourne: Serbian glamour girl and 20th seed Ana Ivanovic overcame some late nerves to advance to the second round of the Australian Open on Tuesday as she works to get her career back on track.

American Shenay Perry, who struggled with her own serve, broke back and then had four break points to get the second set back on serve at 5-4.
