About Ana

I'm very optimistic about this season Jan 25th 2014

I've just about caught my breath, after such an exciting start to the season. To win my first nine matches was like a dream, really, because I didn't have any expectations when I started in Auckland.

If someone had offered me the Auckland title and beating Serena at the Australian Open I'd have taken it for sure. Of course I'm disappointed that I couldn't beat Bouchard, and that I've had to pull out of Paris with an injury, but I am trying to focus only on the positives and I already have good momentum.

Did you know?

  • Ana has never lost to an Italian player. She is 14-0 in matches on the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour
  • 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
