Serbia’s Ana Ivanovic Wins Monterrey Open

MEXICO CITY – Serbia’s Ana Ivanovic, the No. 2 seed, defeated countrywoman Jovana Jaksic 6-2, 6-1 in the final of the 6th Monterrey Open.

The win helped Ivanovic move up one spot in the WTA rankings released on Monday to No. 12, while Jaksic got an even bigger boost in her ranking, climbing from No. 137 to No. 106, thanks to her performance in the Mexican tournament.

The 26-year-old Ivanovic needed just one hour on Sunday to beat the 20-year-old Jaksic, who was the big surprise of the tournament.

The $500,000 Monterrey Open, which is held at the Sonoma tennis club in the northern industrial city of Monterrey, was Ivanovic’s second title of the year.

Ivanovic, the 2008 French Open champion, won the title at Auckland earlier this year.

France’s Marion Bartoli won the Monterrey Open in 2009, while Russia’s Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova was victorious in 2010, 2011 and 2013. Hungary’s Timea Babos won the title in 2012.

Serbia’s Darija Jurak and American Megan Moulton-Levy beat Babos and Belarus’s Olga Govortsova 7-6 (7-5), 3-6, 11-9 in the doubles final.

Jurak and Moulton-Levy needed 93 minutes to defeat the top-seeded Babos and Govortsova.

The Monterrey Open is one of Mexico’s biggest tennis tournaments.
