Re: Ana Ivanovic's Dramatic Weight Loss: Any One Concerned... Yet??

Heinz Günthardt got her back into shape after she was overweight for a while, and her results improved dramatically. She was in perfect athletic shape then, but it seems she has lost even more weight with Sears, which obviously is a bit concerning.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

no concern as she looks good, maybe you need to be concerned about your fav's weight gained.

I would like to know how she did it. She is either working really really hard, which I doubt, or is just downright starving.

Yes, because looking "good" (read: subjective) is exactly what being a female athlete is all about

Venus has gained weight?

I think she looked better in 2010--she is not naturally as thin ad Dani and Maria--she seems to be naturally a "bigger" girl.

If I recall, all this was Sears' idea.

That is fit Ana. Before Günthardt, during her worst stretch, she was probably 15-18 pounds heavier. Now she looks too thin for her bodyframe imho.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.

Re: Ana Ivanovic's Dramatic Weight Loss: Any One Concerned... Yet??

I am a little worried with her look TBH. Yes, under Heinz Gunthardt she was best since 2008 (miss him ) and she had Marija Lojanica as her fitness trainer back then, but as much Marija brought new and fresh ideas in Ana's fitness training and improved her movement (Ana hired her after the disaster of Wimby 2010, they worked together during the summer and after that she started playing better and better) she also had a plan to reduce a bit Ana's weight to get her faster and strengthen her upper body, unfortunately the collaboration ended at the beginning of 2011 so it didn't have any benefits, except the weight loss which didn't stop since then (despite the fact that she got back briefly with Scott Byrnes in 2011)... Dunno.
And no, she didn't hire Djokovic's magic doc, and she is not completely gluten free...
What is sad to see is that she is not willing to hire a fitness coach... She has money to afford a physio, a fitness coach etc. etc.

Ana Ivanovic, Maria Sharapova, Zvonareva, Kuznetsova, Makiri, Vika, W sisters, Sarita, Domi, Halep, Dinarik tnx for all! TeamRussia
ROGER FEDERER, RAFA NADAL, Delpo, Kei, Spanish Armada

But it is not 3000 years ago.

I don't disagree that she looks great, but that is not the goal of tennis player.
A tennis player goal is to get in athletic shape that maximizes her abilities.


If this was runway modeling, yes, Ana has achieved that goal. But this is tennis.



I understand Ana Ivanovic has adoring fans following unlike those of Anna Kournikova.
This group of fans did not seem to care about Anna. K results on the tennis court , as long as she looks great and smiles and throws kisses to their general direction.

BTW, Maria Sharpova now looks like an athlete.
