About Ana

Looking ahead to the IPTL Nov 26th 2014

I’m just about to fly to Manila for the start of the International Premier Tennis League (IPTL). I’m very excited to be taking part in this innovative new competition.

When I first heard rumours about the league I was a little sceptical, considering the scale of the event and so were quite a few others in the tennis industry…a year or so later and here we are, about to go on a four-city tour of Asia and the Middle East, with most of the world’s top male and female players taking part!

Rediff.com interview Nov 23rd 2014

Ana recently gave an interview to rediff.com, one of the world's - and particularly India's - most popular websites.

The following is a reproduction of the question-and-answer session:

Did you know?

  • As a child, Ana trained in an empty swimming pool in Belgrade. The April 11 sports center housed an Olympic-sized pool but could not afford to keep it heated during the winter, so installed carpet courts
  • Ana still has her first ever racquet, which her father gave her for her fifth birthday. It's in the cupboard of her bedroom
  • Ana is a superstitious person. Among her luck-related rituals are avoiding stepping on the lines of the court and wearing certain outfits. If she finds a coin during a tournament, she always keeps it for good luck
