Ana was recently interviewed by Press newspaper in Serbia. The following is a translated extract from the Q & A session:
Ana, you recently got a new coach Nigel Sears, and you’re now back again with fitness coach Scott Byrnes. How do you feel about it, and what are you expectations from them?
I’m very happy. There’s a lot of positivity in the team. We all get on well and we’re very ambitious. But it’s going to take time. I am committed to working with Nigel and Scott for a long time and I know that it will be six months or so until I really see the results of our work. I have to be patient.
How did you spend your vacation?
I went to my holiday home in Mallorca for a week. I spent a relaxing time with my brother and some friends. Every summer we explore more and more of that beautiful island.
You were with Novak at Hopman Cup at the beginning of the season, when this fantastic series started. Did you even imagine back then that Novak will have such a succesfull season and become number one?
I always believed he could do it, because he’s so talented and he really believes in himself. At the Hopman Cup I noticed how relaxed he and his whole team are, and how much fun they have during training. It’s definitely a great environment for achieving a lot of success, and I’m not surprised that he is No.1 now – he really deserves it. But I don’t think anyone, including Novak himself, would have believed that he would lose just one match in six months. It’s amazing.
