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?
Ana is featured on the cover of the current issue of Corriere della Sera Magazine.
Ana talked to writer Cristina Cimino about achieving her dream of becoming world No.1, family, life after tennis and other topics.
The following is a reproduction of the introduction of the feature:

A lengthy interview feature with Ana appears in the new issue of TIME Magazine in the United States. The following is a reproduction of the story:
Ana Ivanovic: Tennis's Next Megastar
By SEAN GREGORY
Oh, you know those tennis divas. Coddled from childhood. Pushed by their parents to some high-priced academy. Coached day and night. Flights in first class. Bombs sailing by Grandma's front door.
Ana was on the front page of The Daily Telegraph newspaper in Britain today. She was also on the cover of the magazine supplement, and the following feature interview appeared in the sport section:

Ana, you’ve been described as a young Brooke Shields, and the Catherine Zeta Jones of the tennis world. How do you feel about that?
