WIMBLEDON, England (AP) - Ana Ivanovic has overcome Lucie Hradecka of the Czech Republic in three sets after saving two match
points to reach the second round at Wimbledon.
Ivanovic rallied from a poor start to win 5-7, 6-2, 8-6 Tuesday. The former No. 1 from Serbia broke to lead 5-4 in the final set but failed to serve out the match on her first attempt. In her next service game, she saved two match points before holding with an ace.
She then broke at love for a 7-6 lead and sealed the win when Hradecka's return went wide.
