New York: More than four years after her French Open title, Ana Ivanovic is finally back in a Grand Slam quarterfinal.
The 12th-seeded Serb beat Tsvetana Pironkova 6-0, 6-4 on Monday in the fourth round of the U.S. Open. Ranked No. 1 in the world in 2008, Ivanovic has struggled with injuries and her confidence since.
After failing to serve out the match at 5-3 in the second set, Ivanovic broke the 55th-ranked Bulgarian at love in the next game to clinch the victory.
