MOSCOW, RUSSIA: Ana Ivanovic raised Serbian hopes of a first ever appearance in the Fed Cup by BNP Paribas Final as she made an incredible comeback from losing the first five games and opening set before winning the point, 36 60 63.

She also admitted that having lost in yesterday's second rubber against Svetlana Kuznetsova she had a sleepless night but hopes that her victory today will have eased the pressure on her team as they look to progress.

Anastasia Pavluychenkova then looks ahead to her clay court season and what might have been at the end of the third set when she seemed to regain some momentum.

Elsewhere, Jelena Jankovic praises the team effort for Serbia's victory and explains she is excited about leading her team into its first Fed Cup Final and Svetlana Kuznetsova talks about her hopes for playing again in the competition in the coming years.
