Re: Ana Ivanovic states she's taking a break from tennis
I think she should just end her year right now. Take a month off, do absolutely nothing tennis related. Just lie on a beach for a month is that's what she really wants to do. The next month, start light training again and see a sports psychologist. November/December intense training. Sort out that ball toss! Work on a new on court demeanor; she gets way to excited and worked up these days against opponents she should be brushing aside. Come back next year playing smaller events until the confidence is there. And most importantly: do not expect miricles to happen! She cannot expect to be her old self after these 3 months off - that was the easy part, the hard part begins in 2010.
... for some reason.
