Ana Ivanovic has been very inconsistent since her French Open victory last year, but she may have taken a step forward today when she avenged her Australian Open defeat by beating Alisa Kleybanova in Dubai 7-5,6-4. At this point, any win is a good win for Ivanovic, especially since she is just beginning a new partnership with her coach Craig Kardon, who is with her in Dubai this week. 

Ivanovic, who has struggled with her serve, had an inconsistent serve in this match, as she had 13 aces against 6 double faults in the match. She is definitely moving in the right direction, but there is plently of work that still needs to be done if she wants to win another Grand Slam tournament any time soon. She will next face either Ursula Radwanska or Camille Pin. 

Other notable results from Dubai:

Elena Vesnina def. (7) Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-4,3-6,6-0

Ursula Radwanska def. (9) Agnieszka Radwanska 6-4,6-3

(10) Alize Cornet def. Anna-Lena Groenefeld 6-4,6-1

Ayumi Morita def. (15) Anna Chakvetadze 7-5,6-2
