After the great success of our young tennis on Roland Garros, Serbian president Boris Tadic sent his congratulations to Ana Ivanovic.
- Dear Ana, with great delight we followed your appearances on one of the most prestigious tennis tournaments, and became more and more proud of you and your successes. By reaching the quarterfinals you have exceeded our expectations.
- The person who doesn’t learn how to lose is not able to win and to triumph on the future tournaments which, I am sure, you will soon do.
Ana made great strides in improving her fitness in 2005, and her better on-court results were apparent. Her increased stamina likely played a part in many of her come-from-behind victories.
Ana’s fitness trainer, Pierre Paganini, signed a new contract to work with Ana. Pierre will now spend more time with Ana than with any other player apart from Roger Federer.
Ana's success has generated a huge amount of traffic on this website that forces us to transfer the hosting to a new, much faster, ISP. During the transfer period we will have to deactivate the media section.
We hope to be fully operational within the next few days.
Thank you for visiting and being patient with us.

Ana has joined a strong field for Hastings Direct International in Eastbourne.
Ana will line up alongside Kim Clijsters, Amelie Mauresmo, Justine Henin-Hardenne, Anastasia Myskina and last year's winner Svetlana Kuznetsova.
True to her personality, Ana was in good spirits after her quarter-final defeat, despite losing in straight sets to Russian Nadia Petrova. “It was really great experience,” she said. “Last year, I just start competing on this level. To reach quarter-final, it’s great.”
Even though she admitted she was “not feeling so great right now,” Ana was her usual charming self, smiling to reporters and answering questions thoughtfully. “I think she’s a very good player,” she said about her conqueror.
Ana’s French Open adventure came to an end on Tuesday afternoon as she was beaten 6-2, 6-2 by seventh seed Nadia Petrova of Russia. It was an error-strewn performance from the 17-year-old, who was unable to reproduce the kind of form that got her to her first ever grand slam quarter-final.
“I’m pretty happy the first quarter-final,” she said. “But a little disappointed with this match today. I think I could give much more. And that’s why I don’t feel so great right now.”
Ana will play Russian Nadia Petrova for a semi-final place.
Nadia Petrova made her breakthrough at the French Open two years ago when she defeated Monica Seles and Jennifer Capriati on a run to the semi-finals.
Ana beat Petrova in their only previous encounter. That came in Miami at the start of the year when Ana won 6-4, 7-5.
Ana's match will be first on Suzanne Lenglen Court.
Ana continued her surprise run at the French Open with a fourth-round victory over Francesca Schiavone on Monday.
Ana, who ended the hopes of home favourite Amelie Mauresmo in the previous round, recorded a narrow 6-4 6-7 (3/7) 6-3 victory on Court Two at Roland Garros.
Ana took the first set 6-4 in 41 minutes but Schiavone, at 22 the higher seed by seven places, moved ahead in the second as she looked to get back in the match.
Schiavone, troubled by a total of eight double faults, served for the set but failed in her task and so into the tie-break they went.
She showed grace under pressure ... and many other kind messages are left for Ana on this site.
Thank you all. There is a new entry in the Diary section where Ana thanks you personally.
