It’s been a while since Ana Ivanovic has been at her best form but the former world number one has been responsible for dumping out two of the tournament favourites during the first week of the Grand Slam.
However, the 14th seed now finds herself as the favourite for the first time in three games as the Serb comes up against 30th seed Eugenie Bouchard who has been turning heads on every court she has played on in Melbourne.
Ivanovic’s path to the last eight couldn’t have been any harder with the former French Open winner having knocked out former Grand Slam winners Sam Stosur and Serena Williams in the last two rounds.
After beating top seed Williams 4-6 6-3 6-3 on Sunday, the Serbian tennis star has managed to eek out a winning streak of eight games which has made her one of just two women players so far to maintain a 100% record in 2014 so far.
However, her Canadian opponent is out to end that good start as Bouchard continues to fulfil the promise that any had seen in her just a few years ago.
The 30th seed is in the last eight for the first time and has knocked out several more experienced opponents including home favourite Casey Dellaqua in the fourth round where she emerged triumphant in a 6-7 6-2 6-0 victory on Sunday morning.
It’s a remarkable feat for Bouchard who has found herself in the main draw of the Australian Open for the first time having failed to qualify in years gone by.
Bouchard will no doubt be the more confident going into the match having won the only meeting between her and Ivanovic after beating the Serb in the second round of Wimbledon last year 6-3 6-3.
It seems that there is certainly a case for Bouchard to cause an upset on Tuesday morning as Ivanovic will look to prove the world that she is a force to be reckoned with once again by reaching the semi-finals of the Australian Open.
