Ivanovic stretch fh

(April 6, 2014) In an all-Serbian final Ana Ivanovic won the Monterrey Open on Sunday, defeating Jovana Jaksic 6-2, 6-1 for her second WTA title of the year. Ivanovic also won the Auckland tournament in January.

“I think we both enjoyed the final tonight – it was very special for our country, it was the first time two players from our country were in a WTA final together,” Ivanovic said after the match to WTAtennis.com. “It was also great to see Jovana doing so well this week. I think she definitely has a bright future ahead of her.

“Last year I lost very early here in Monterrey but I had so much fun that I wanted to come back, so to make it this far this year is amazing. And every title is so special. I had some tough matches this week but I feel so happy to get through each of them, and this title is definitely one of my favorites.”

It’s Ivanovic’s 13th title of her career

It was a career week for Jasic who reached her first WTA tour final, beating Kimiko Date-Krumm in the semis. Before this week she had only won one WTA Tour level match.

“I definitely don’t take for granted any win anymore,” said Williams. “Not that I used to. But now it’s even more special, every win. My serve keeps improving pretty much every tournament. That always helps me.
