TOP SEEDS OUSTED OUT OF DOUBLES
Ana Ivanovic and Kirsten Flipkens created a huge upset in the women’s doubles first round taking down the top seeds from the Czech Republic, Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka.
Flipkens was determined that that the pairing would just take it match by match with singles and doubles and just have fun out there on the court here in Auckland.
Ivanovic and Flipkens were have a good old time out there on centre-court, with a few friendly laughs exchanged throughout match play.
Flipkens will now focus on her singles match against Bethanie Mattek-Sands tomorrow during the day. While Ivanovic will play Qualifier Naomi Broady in the evening session.
