The second victory is one of the most prestigious wins in Ana Ivanovic's career. Although seeded 1st in the tournament, facing the then No.3 Kuznetsova wasn't as easy as she made it look.

The final of the Pacific Life Open seemed equally contested until the 9th game. At 30-30 Ivanovic forced her opponent into an error and found a forehand winner, one shot that always came to her aid to break. She held serve to take the 1st set 6-4.

In the second set, the Serb got a break in the 3rd game but was broken right back. That didn't deter her as she broke Kuznetsova again in the 7th game. After holding serve to lead 5-3 a double fault brought her up to 30-0. Ana Ivanovic found a crashing backhand and a service return down the line in succession to get her hands on the trophy.
