About Ana

Update from Paris May 26th 2014

For as long as I live Paris will always have a special place in my heart. It’s where I’ve achieved many of my greatest victories and I am thrilled to be back.
 
I’m feeling more confident than I have in previous years. It’s been a good start to the year. Something I have been targeting for a long time is frequent wins over the top players – I’ve been able to achieve that this season and that gives me confidence.

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
