Thumbs up Ana Ivanovic

Eurosport comentator said :
- "She looks to die for"
- "She will be in Top 10 shortly"


What do you people think about her?
Is she the greater surprise than sharapova, as the comentator said?

of course.

I remember when sharapova 1st came out she lost in the 1st round of 2 grandslams but ivanovic had a much better debut on the tour.

Ana will be the next big thing

IF Maria Sharapova = Masha
& Maria Kirilenko = Makiri
THEN...
Lindsay Davenport = Linda
Anastasia Myskina = Amy
Conchita Martinez = Coma
Shahar Peer = Shape
Alicia Molik = Almo
Sofia Arvidsson = Soar
Maria Vento Kabchi = Maven
Magdalena Maleeva = Mama
Rennae Stubbs = Rest
Anne Keothavong = Anke
Tamarine Tanasugarn = Tata

For me she is a really strong player with huge baseline shots and a great service..
mentally she showed yesterday solid nerve when from 0-4 down she came back to 3-4.

I love her and I think she can be top 15 before US open!

Oh really? Considering Ana is near the same age as Maria, I don't agree that Ana is necessarily having much better debut.

Maria was what 15 when she made her debut?

There is no comparison between the two players. But, Ana is an obvious talent and i am sure in the next few years she will be a major threat in the Grand Slams.

It was my first time seeing her. I was very impressed, and from what I can tell, she seems like a nice person too. I hope her and Jelena (Jankovic) can both have a really good year!! Good luck for the future Ana!

You know the most scariest thing about Ana is that she seems to be so confident on court...she looks like as if she had seen everything already, like sheŽs been a pro all her life. Pretty interesting. Should be in Top 15 at the end of the year. Biggest problem is accuracy in her baseline game, her shots are like "either they go in perfectly or they go wide out".

German commentator actually said she was Kournikova-material...lol, yeah brunette version, that WTA-profile pic of her is just stunning . If I were a pro, I would like them to put up a similar pic of me . Sponsorship material for sure.

I haven't seen her play yet. They barely showed her match against
LD from the AO.

What's her style like? Typical baseliner with 2 handed strokes etc..
Anything unusual? All court game? Flare? Noisy? Nobody has
really described her playing style. In fact most people up at
GM don't seem to say much except "she's hot" or "She's
confident". I need more info. Something to give me a
better impression.

It takes a very interesting player to win me over. I don't bandwagon
hop nor glory hunt for stars or winners.

What's so special about Ana?

I agree. The tour's answer to Kournikova, but one that will probably perform better on the court. I have never seen her play and I'm already a fan so I'm guessing she has the IT factor.

Her reputation clearly doesnŽt need visual prove

You know, as we both have the same faves, there might be a possibilty you would actually like her

Game style? Agressive baseline-game, she always goes for the big shots/winners, extreme hard hitter on the forehand, but also very nice backhand. One handed forehand, double-handed backhand. First serve is quite impressive, max. at about 182 km/h, second serve is better than the one of some top-ten players, but still needs some work. She likes to dominate rallies, not really into defense. She says she likes to play on all surfaces but it seems like Hardcourt is the best for her. Due to her heavy baseline shots, she can also play some very nice approach-shots and come to the net, volleys are ok. Well, basically her style of game is to attack, attack, attack and never look back...due to her inexperience, sheŽs way too impatient sometimes, misses a lot of shots if her game is not on, but I think thatŽs something she can work on it.
