    ANA Ivanovic steered the Micromax Indian Aces to a 26-16 victory over the DBS Singapore Slammers to kick off their campaign in the International Premier Tennis League (IPTL) on a bright note on Friday night at the Mall of Asia Arena.

    Ivanovic blanked Daniela Hantuchova, 6-0, in the women’s singles, setting the stage for the Aces’ dominance of the Slammers for a 1-0 win-loss slate in the Manila leg of the meet.

    The win by the Serbian netter came with the tie hanging in the balance at 14-all.
