Ana defeated Indian Wells champion Flavia Pennetta 6-4, 6-3 in the third round of the Sony Open Tennis in Miami.
The 25-year-old triumphed in an hour and 18 minutes to set up a round four clash with eighth seed Petra Kvitova.
Ana secured the first set by breaking the Italian twice - and being broken once herself.
In the second set Ana held serve throughout, and scored a decisive break to end Pennetta's seven match-winning streak, which had included wins over two of the world's top three-ranked players.
"Flavia has been playing some really good tennis lately. She's really on top of her form," said Ana. "I expected a tough match today, and I'm really happy the way I played, especially at the end of the first set and in the beginning of the second set.
"I'm really happy to get this victory today."
