Former World No. 1 Ana Ivanovic will meet Czech Republic star Lucie Safarova in the 2014 French Open third round on Saturday at 11:00 GMT, being played here on outdoor hard courts at Court Suzanne Lenglen.

Both the players are meeting for the seventh time on the WTA Tour, where Safarova is leading with a 4-2 win loss head-to-head record against Ivanovic. The pair last meet at the 2012 Fed Cup singles match and Safarova went on to clinch victory in two sets with a 6-4, 6-2. As per the predictions, Ivanovic is considered as hot favorite to clinch victory in third round and sails into the 2014 French Open fourth round.

26-year-old Ana Ivanovic is having most of the chances to clinch second Grand Slam in her tennis career, where she needs to work hard more to continue similar momentum in Roland Garros. Serbian star has thrashed Elina Svitolina in French Open second round with a 7-5, 6-2, while outlasted opening round opponent Frenchwomen Caroline Garcia with a 6-1, 6-3.

Lucie Safarova has defeated Casey Dellacqua in the French Open second round in three sets with a 6-1, 5-7, 6-3 and conquered opening round opponent Mandy Minella with a 6-3, 7-5.
