Ana Ivanovic made history at the US Open this evening…..by being the first top seeded woman to lose in the second round in 40 years.
Julie Coin, the 188th-ranked ranked player in the world, shock Ivanovic in three set 6-3, 4-6, 6-3. Prior to Ana’s collapse, who was battling a thumb injury, only Billie Jean King suffered an early exit as a number one seed. that came in 1973 when she retired in the third set of a third round match. It’s OK though because Ana will live on at the Open in our hearts and minds.
