Ana Ivanovic will remain my tennis babe no matter what happens. Maria Sharapova might be sexier than her. Elena Dementieva can be better in combining looks and talents than her. In fact, the young Serb is easily pressured on courts resulting to her unforced errors and mushy serves.
Yet, I can still see something so different in Ana Ivanovic. Something so special I can’t really explain even if she loss and loss time after time. To me, she’s not the worst tennis player in history even her early exits in US Open 2008 and in Australian Open 2009. Some people are simply too hard on her.
Now that Craig Kardon at her side, hope things will be nicer for the Serb. Ana Ivanovic can be the next Justine Henin if only trained hard. Practice makes perfect in tennis. Tennis is all about strategic conditioning and this is what Ana needs.
Ivanovic might not be a cheetah runner like Serena Williams but with her deep forehand return and her perceived potentials in clay, she can take these two elements to her biggest advantage. Truth is; she’s still young and who knows, she can be the next top seed of the next generation WTA queens like Denmark’s Caroline Wozniacki, Polish Agnieszka Radwanska, Belarus’ Victoria Azarenka and French Alize Cornet.
Right now, the most important thing is, Ivanovic consistently makes it to the QF-SF or F of her next tournaments. If she’s playing better and stronger, good rankings will just follow, right?
