Ana scoops another award

Ana scoops another award

Ana has been named "Miss Fed Cup 2006" for the Europe/Africa Zone, in a poll of journalists' favourite players competing in Bulgaria this week.

"I am flattered by the vote," said Ana, who received an elephant figure to commemorate the occasion. "Thank you everyone who voted for me."

Ana received 65 per cent of the vote, beating South African Alicia Pillay into second place. Slovakian teenager Dominika Cibulkova was third but countrywoman Daniela Hantuchova, who has won similar awards in the past, only received 5 per cent of the vote and finished fourth.

The award is the third that Ana has received in the past four months alone. She ended last year by being named Sexiest Woman Player of 2005 in Tennisreporters.net's inaugural fans' poll. More importantly of course, last month she won the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour award for Most Improved Player 2005.
