Ivanovic believes she can win the AO

Ivanovic says breakup affected her game

Ana Ivanovic says she feels good about her chances at the Australian Open.

The (Sydney) Sunday Telegraph

Updated Jan 16, 2011 1:20 PM ET

Serbian tennis star Ana Ivanovic says her split from her longtime love, Australian golfer Adam Scott, affected her game, The (Sydney) Sunday Telegraph reported.

On the eve of the Australian Open, the talented Serbian player told the newspaper her on-court performance suffered after the breakup in the middle of last year.

During the slump, her ranking fell outside the world top 50, and she lost in the opening round of Wimbledon.

"It's tough," the 2008 French Open champion said. "I think it's better not to mix professional life and personal life, although that's hard. If you're happy in your private life, that will affect your tennis, and that will help you, actually.

"While you want to pursue your career 100 percent, I think it is very hard to give 100 percent in something else."

But the 22-year-old, who has dropped 11 pounds and has returned to form — her ranking is up to 17 — is thankful for the experience and says she is optimistic about her Australian Open chances.

"I believe it is possible to win it,'' said Ivanovic, a finalist in 2008.

Re: Ivanovic believes she can win the AO

long-time lover? How long she had been with that man? 1 year? Well, in today's standard 1 year = 100 years

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Ennis and Jack found something most people don't ever find in this life...true love, the deepest, purest, most beautiful thing in the universes. Ennis and Jack have TRUE LOVE. They are SOULMATES. They have a love so deep, so pure, so strong, that it transcends everything, it's eternal.

Also, did I mention that every one else is either MIA or playing like crap lately?

Re: Ivanovic believes she can win the AO

You know, the timeline of this article doesn't make any sense. She was actually playing badly throughout her whole relationship with that guy and after they broke up she started playing better. So what the hell are they talking about? I think they may be confusing her breakup with that guy with her breakup with Verdasco, because after THAT breakup her game actually did seem to go downhill.

Re: Ivanovic believes she can win the AO

Wasn't she in a slump for two years? What was her explanation for that?

Re: Ivanovic believes she can win the AO

If you enter a tournament not believing she will win, then its better just quit tennis

Peak Ana can win any tournament she enters, that's just obvious

ITF: “She is the sole author of her own misfortune.”
