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.

Interview with Ana's management Nov 9th 2014

Prior to the Generali Ladies Linz the two most senior members of Ana's mangement company were interviewed by Austrian publication Sportmagazin about her return to the upper echelons of women's tennis.

The following is a translated extract of their interview:

You’ve known Ana since she was 14 years old. How would you characterise Ana as a person?

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
