top seed falls before bearing wimbledon fruit

June 27, 2008

Following in the footsteps of French Open top seed Maria Sharapova, Wimbledon top seed Ana Ivanovic, who fought off two match points in her second round match against Nathalie Dechy, fell to the Chinese wildcard Zheng Jie today 6-1, 6-4.

“It was a very emotional last couple of weeks for me and it took a bit of a toll,” revealed Ivanovic. “I didn’t have great preparation.”

Zheng performance made Ivanovic the earliest top seed to bow out of Wimbledon since Martina Hingis got booted by Jelena Dokic in 2001. The native of Chengdu, Sichuan, China wore a Nike top with a curved v-neck.

Meanwhile, Ana shed the florally-hemmed Edge Dress after her first round match against Rossana De Los Rios. She then switched to the more sophisticated Edge Polo with its boatneck collar, cap sleeves, and swirly mesh insets.
