Ivanovic wins Indian Wells

I did not get to see the final because FSN Southwest did not broadcast it. At any rate, Ana Ivanovic defeated Svetlana Kuznetsova, 6-4, 6-3. Kuznetsova has developed the Patty Schnyder syndrome: Get into plenty of finals and lose them. I hope she turns that around soon. (I hope Patty does, too.)

This just hit me, though rocket science it's not. If anyone takes the top spot from Henin this year, it won't be Sharapova, but rather Ivanovic. With her win today, she puts 500 points between herself and numbers 3-5. More important, she's pulled within about 2000 of #1. And with the dirtball season almost here, Ana certainly rates among the top 4 clay courters in the world, wouldn't you say? I don't expect Queen Justine to go down without a huge fight, esp. at the French. So this could be fun!

I haven't looked at the numbers lately, but goodness, you're right. And yes, Ivanovic has become a much better clay court player than I thought she would. Yikes.
