Stunner enjoys racket on, off court
Margie McDonald | December 27, 2008
ANA Ivanovic made half of her earnings to date in just one year, 2008, and she will take some valuable lessons learned from last season into the New Year, along with her healthy bank account.
Ana is featured in the current edition of Swiss airlines' in-flight magazine SWISS Universe. The following is a reproduction of the question-and-answer feature:
THE BEAUTY ON THE TENNIS COURT
Serbian Ana Ivanovic is an exceptionally talented tennis player who stays charming and cheerful, despite her big success. SWISS Universe talked to her about her life on and off the tennis court.
Interviewer: TAMAS KISS
SWISS UNIVERSE: YOU TRAVEL AROUND THE WORLD CONSTANTLY – HERE TODAY, SOMEWHERE ELSE TOMORROW. HOW DO YOU COPE WITH THIS NOMADIC EXISTENCE?
Ana recently gave an interview to the website of the Brisbane International, her opening tournament of 2009:
You had a few injury concerns in 2008, how are you feeling now?
Fortunately those injuries are behind me. I am feeling healthy and I’m very excited about the new season. I started training for it already in November!
How will you prepare for the Brisbane International and Australian Open 2009?
Ana is on the cover of the November issue of Regio Aktuell magazine in Switzerland. The following is a translated extract from the interview with Dominique Zahnd:
Ana was featured in the popular Swiss lifestyle magazine Schweizer Illustrierte earlier this month.
The pages and a short, translated extract from the exclusive interview are shown here:
Schweizer Illustrierte: What is your impression of Switzerland?
It's peaceful and quiet. I'm happy that I can relax there easily. People don't really approach me in the street; everyone respects each other's privacy.
What do you like about Basel?
Ana was interviewed by Serbian broadcaster Pink TV on Monday, during a photo shoot for her sponsor Verano.
The following is a translated transcript of the interview:
Nenad Stefanovic, Pink TV: It is a great honour and pleasure of mine to have Ana Ivanovic beside me, here in a cozy atmosphere at the Zira hotel. Ana, you raised the trophy in Linz yesterday, today you are here in Belgrade. Yesterday’s victory in Linz cannot be compared to Roland Garros, but I think it means psychologically almost as much as that one.
Ana recently graced the covers of two magazines in China: Sports Illustrated and the popular lifestyle publication Beijing News Weekly (BQ).
The following are short extracts from each interview:
Sports Illustrated China: You once told us that you do not like losing, even when playing chess with your coach, so, are you still bearing that will in mind? Have you ever sensed the pressure caused by your will to win? How did you handle that?
Ana was recently interviewed by Russian journalist Alexey Potapov for Tennis Business Magazine. The following is an extract from the question-and-answer session:
Tennis Business Magazine: Ana, it is known that you love the Greek mythology. Who is your favourite mythological character?
Ana: I actually don't read so much Greek mythology these days. My favourite story is about Atlantis. I also admire Athena, the Greek goddess of wisdom.
TBM: You have a lot of admirers in Russia. Will you be coming to Russia for the Kremlin Cup?
Earlier this year Ana was interviewed by the award-winning tennis writer Paul Fein. The interview has been published in several publications, most notably as the cover story of Sports Illustrated in South Africa. The following is an extract from the interview:
Of your mother, Dragana, you recently said, “She’s my best friend, too. It’s so important to have her on the road with me.” In what ways does your mother help you?
