Sara Errani

Sara Errani wrote Italian tennis history today: she beat Jelena Jankovic 6-3 7-5 and became the first Italian player to reach the Rome tournament final since Raffaella Reggi, in 1985.

“I just tried to keep focused on my game and what I had to do. The motivation was the crowd. They were unbelievable and I have no words to say what it is like to play on this court with this support. Amazing!”

In the other semifinal, Serena Williams beat in-form Ana Ivanovic 6-1 3-6 6-1.

Ana Ivanovic

Ana Ivanovic took down Maria Sharapova 6-1 6-4 to advance to the quarterfinals of the Internazionali d’Italia. The loss ended Sharapova’s 12-match winning streak on clay (victories in Stuttgart and Madrid).
Ivanovic looks poised to get back into the top 10 for the first time since 2009. Do you think she can find back the playing level of her amazing 2008 season, when she won Roland Garros and reached the number one ranking?
