Is Ivanovic overrated?

I find her a charming girl, but can't really pinpoint anything that makes her game special...can anyone? Against the top players, she just seems lost out there. Maybe it's still a mental thing for her.

No way. She has fantastic potential, and is extremely talented.

Re: Is Ivanovic overrated?

Records against top players in 2007:

Henin 0-1
Kuznetsova 2-0
Jankovic 3-0
Sharapova 2-0
Chakvetadze 0-0
S. Williams 0-0
Petrova 3-0
V. Williams 0-2
Bartoli 0-0

Justine is beating everybody. Venus just seems to have her number this year. She's not overrated.

Goodbye WTA and Jelena. It was nice being your fan once.

Re: Is Ivanovic overrated?

Not overrated.. she has wins against many of the top players and she has proved herself to not be a one slam wonder - had bad luck 2 draw venus @ 4th round if not i would have tipped her for SF at least

Venus Williams
Sammy Stosur
Ana Ivanovic
Kimmy Clijsters
Martina Hingis
Jarmila Groth
Sharapova Dokic Wozniacki Delaqua Molik Kirilenko Dementieva Na Dani Kvitova

I'd say not overated, but she wouldn't get as much attention if she wasn't so pretty! I like her, but I don't find her all that exciting to watch.

Re: Is Ivanovic overrated?

She's very talented, still a lot of thing to improve though. She's more comfortable on slow surface at this stage of her career, because she hasn't developed a solid net game yet, and footwork is not perfect. But she's getting better all the time, so I believe she'll be more consistent next year, and maybe win some big tournaments.

Merci Justine!

Ana's game is just perfect for Venus. Even last year Vee beat her quite convincingly at Luxembourg (which was her first tournament back since Wimbledon earlier that year)

Re: Is Ivanovic overrated?

For me the ranking of Ana is right, she deserves a position around #5 and the YEC.

Anna Chakvetadze

Hampton * Radwanska

Cibulkova * Diyas * Hsieh * Muguruza * Paszek * Puig * Vesnina * Zheng

Re: Is Ivanovic overrated?

I dunno why so many people find her pretty. Maybe it's just me but when I first saw her on TV, the player that popped up in my mind was Lindsay Davenport and I still see some resemblance between the two.

Re: Is Ivanovic overrated?

Her forehand is obviously killer. More than anything, she has incredible potential if she ever learns to toughen up mentally--and learns to add more dimensions to her game, in addition to improving her foot speed (of course). Seriously, she has game, she's just a bit rough around the edges.

Re: Is Ivanovic overrated?

By some people yes she is overrated. But on the other hand quite a few people underrate her too. Same as with all players really.

Seriously, I don't think Ana is overrated by a larger percentage of people than anyone else. I think most people see her as an attractive, talented, improving player who is not yet the finished article and is still capable of inconsistancy but is almost certainly heading for a great career. Which is about right.

Re: Is Ivanovic overrated?

i don't think she is overrated, she is 5th on the world and she has a lot of things to improve. comparing to jelena who's biggest problem is serve. ana has a big problem with inconsistancy and she plays great or she is terrible. there is no middle.
