Former top-ranked Ana Ivanovic of Serbia advanced to the second round of Wimbledon with a 7-6 (1), 6-0 win over qualifier Virginie Razzano of France on Monday.

She then wrapped up the second set in 22 minutes, serving out the match with her sixth ace before raising her arms in celebration.

The 158th-ranked Razzano has not won a match against a top-15 opponent since her stunning win over Serena Williams at the French Open last year.
