Ivanovic beats Dechy in thriller and Williams sisters can't vote because of their religion - Tennis - Yahoo! Sports
A lucky net cord helped Ivanovic save one of two match points
Top seed Ana Ivanovic saved two match points as she battled to a marathon 6-7 (2-7) 7-6 (7-3) 10-8 second-round win over Nathalie Dechy at Wimbledon.
The 20-year-old world number one began well but surrendered a 5-2 lead to lose the first set on the tie-break.
Ivanovic continued to struggle in the second and saved two match points when serving at 4-5 down with a lucky net cord keeping her in the match.
And she edged a tense deciding set to win in three hours and 24 minutes.

NVDL: I watched this game and Ivanovic also had two OUT calls land in, one by a millimetre. Shows you how small things can make a difference.
The Williams sister are Jehovah's Witnesses. Go figure. MeanwhileWilliams sisters can't vote because of their religion - Tennis - Yahoo! Sports
