Ana Ivanovic 2.0?

Petra Kvitova the reigning Wimbledon champion was ousted earlier today by Alexandra Dulgheru 7-6(7-3), 6-3 in the first round. She becomes the only woman in the open era to have lost in the first round of the US Open after winning Wimbledon. So why do I compare her with Ana Ivanovic? Well the fact that since Ana Ivanovic's 2008 Roland Garros title she hasn't made it past the 4th Round of a Grand Slam. I just wonder if it was a little too much too early for Kvitova, is she finding it difficult to handle her new found success? I never really liked Ivanovic because she peaked too early and thus blew herself out before she could even solidify herself as a top player but I hope Kvitova can move on from this as she's a talented player.
