Ana has been practising this week as she prepares for her next tournament, the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships, which begin one week from today. It will be her first outing since losing in the first round of the Australian Open, prior to which she suffered a broken toe.
"I can't wait to get back on the court," said Ana.
The winner of the January competition is Kostas Vlachogiannis from Greece. He correctly gave "2006" as the answer to the question, "In which year did Ana partner with adidas?"
Congratulations to him, he wins an adidas item signed by Ana.
The February competition is currently open.

Ana has begun working in the gym as she attempts to recover from a broken toe, which she sustained prior to the Australian Open.
If her rehabilitation goes according to plan, she should be back on the practice court within the next week, with the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships set to start in 14 days.
The winner of the December competition is Jelena Milenkovic from Austria. She correctly gave "10" as the answer to the question, "How many times has Ana competed in the women's singles competition of the Australian Open?"
(This was the correct answer while the competition was live; the answer as of today is of course 11, following Ana's participation in the tournament in January 2015).
