Internazionali BNL d'Italia

Ana has been drawn against Italian wild card Karin Knapp in the first round of the Internazionali BNL d'Italia, which begins in Rome on Monday.

If she can overcome the current world No.50, Ana will take on either Alize Cornet or Kirsten Flipkens.

Eighth seed Maria Sharapova, who beat Ana in the Stuttgart final two weeks ago, and who is contesting Sunday's Madrid final, could await in round three. No.4 Simona Halep is a potential quarter-final opponent.

In the semi-finals Ana could play world No.1 Serena Williams.

The leading players in the bottom half of the draw, whom Ana cannot face until the final, are No.2 Na Li, No.3 Agnieszka Radwanska, No.6 Jelena Jankovic and No.7 Angelique Kerber.
