Federer Wins; Ivanovic knocked out
Roger Federer again tried to prove why he should be the number one as he defeated Safin by 6-3, 6-2, 7-6. It was a great game and the fed express was in his full form. "He gave me quite a few free points in the first two sets, but after that he got tougher," Federer said. "I'm pretty lucky I got through in three." "I always like to play Marat," Federer said. "We go back, we like playing each other. It doesn't matter who wins."
Meanwhile, Ana Ivanovic was stunned as she had been knocked out as Russia's Alisa Kleybanova defeated her 7-5, 6-7 (5), 6-2 in the third round. The fifth-seeded Ivanovic lost her serve nine times and finished with 50 unforced errors to just 23 winners. When it was over, Kleybanova dropped to both knees, pumped her fists and blew kisses at the crowd. Ivanovic appeared to be nearly in tears as she walked off court.
