IVANOVIC FLIPKENS CLASH AT THE ASB CLASSIC
Long-time friends go head to head this afternoon, in the semi-final of the ASB Classic. Ana Ivanovic and Kirsten Flipkens advanced to the semi-final after defeating Kurumi Nara and Sachie Ishizu respectively.
The pair are great friends, and have only met once before on the court in Linz in 2012, where Flipkens beat Ivanovic 6-4, 6-0.
"It's always tricky playing your friend, but it's just a tennis match," says Ivanovic.
"We go on court and play our best and then we can go out and have dinner!"
