Ivanovic Loses Again - But hey, at least she enjoyed her time in Tokyo ...

World number 3, Ana Ivanovic, is yet to win 2 straight matches since her third round Wimbledon defeat last June, as the former number 1 player crashed out of the Pan Pacific Open in Tokyo, falling in 3 sets to unseeded Nadia Petrova in the third round.

Despite her 1-6, 6-1, 2-6 loss, the French Open champion seemed happy with her tournament saying:

"I really enjoyed my time. I'm just very happy to have an opportunity to get in the matches again."

Well at least she's happy right?!?! :D

Her Serbian compatriot, Jelena Jankovic, however made it to the quarters alongside Safina, Dementieva, Kutznetsova, Srebotnik, Petrova, Radwanska and Kanepi. JJ can reclaim the number one spot in the rankings (which she held for a single week before) if she wins the tournament.
