Ana Ivanovic can't stand the heat. Today, the world No. 1 was upset by Tamira Paszek in a lopsided third set.
Tamira, she who wasted so many match points in the first round of Melbourne against the other Serbian diva, I was pretty sure her career might be over before it started. She who has won so few matches since Melbourne, I was pretty sure she was going to make me a soothsayer.
I didn't see the match, so I can't say for sure what happened, but if Tamira played anything like she has of late and Ana played anything like she has played since winning Roland Garros and becoming No. 1, well, then, I can only conclude that Miss Ivanovic is buckling under the weight of pressure.
Seems to be an epidemic.
