TENNIS Magazine cover story

Ana is on the cover of the new issue of TENNIS Magazine, the North American-based biggest tennis magazine in the world.

Club officials decided to have it drained and lay down carpet, and that’s where Ivanovic got her first taste of indoor tennis. Practicing there made her game lethal because the walls of the pool were just 18 inches from the sidelines of the court. Down-the-line, often the most difficult shot to hit, was the only way to go.
