The 15th-seeded Serb, who had eliminated defending champion Caroline Wozniacki in the previous round, maintained her excellent form at the event she won back in 2008 with a strong all-round display. Ivanovic broke Bartoli, who was runner-up last year to Wozniacki, three times before wrapping up the win in 77 minutes when her opponent pushed a forehand service return wide.

“I’m definitely very happy to be through and get my revenge for last year in the quarters,” a smiling Ivanovic, who was beaten by Bartoli in straight-sets at the same stage 12 months ago, said in a courtside interview. “It was a tough match but I served well. When I broke her (leading 4-3) in the first set, I think that was the turning point.”
