Williams has shown some good form over the course of this tournament, after an under-par last season where she did not reach the final of any competition.
The American began with a straight-set win over Andrea Hlavackova in her first round match before being stretched to three by Yvonne Meusburger in her second. Gabine Muguruza was easily dispatched in the last-eight round before she got a bye in her semi-final match by the ailing Jamie Hampton.
Ivanovic looked to be running away with her semi-final match against third seeded Kirsten Flipkens when she won the first set 6-0. There was a bit of a fightback from Flipkens in the second before the Serb closed it out in a tie-breaker.
Earlier, Ivanovic had won all her previous matches in straight sets, including her most difficult encounter in first round against Alison Riske that she clinched 7-5, 7-6.
This could turn out to be an interesting one. Overall, Williams leads Ivanovic in their head to head by a 8-1 margin but the two did not play at all in 2013 when the American's form wasn't at her best. Williams has fallen to number 47 in the world while Ivanovic is the world number 16 and could hold a bit of the edge.
