Actually Ana's about 65 kilos weight is perfect for female tennis player, so she is not too skinny, but maybe just too tall
that is a cute response.

what a mental gymnastic!

too tall?

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

I used to think she was at an alright weight like a year or so ago. She seemed to be starting to put on some pounds again and muscles. BUT after seeing her this summer, she's really thin, and this is starting to be worrying. I don't really see what's the benefit for her tennis to be THAT thin, clearly she has to work really hard to stay that thin and I feel it's some energy she could spend differently and still being in great shape.

Wozniak~ElTabakh ~Marino~Eugenie Bouchard...and the other Canucks!

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

What about when she 1st broke into the top 20 back in 03-04,..does anyone have pics of her back then I'm really curious. I think this was when Ana looked her best IMO when she was just top 100 and had that break out year when she leap frogged to top 20.

Winners forget they're in a race, they just love to run. You try too hard.

Ana's OK. The results in GS are coming in. When she faces Serena,we'll know what her level is.

Re: Is Ana anorexic?

Are some of you serious? There is no way an anorexic women can be the seeded 12th and reach the round of 16 at the US Open. It's just not possible.

She has toned down a lot but I don't think she looks unhealthy at all

I guess a lot of people just don't know what anorexia actually is

Re: Is Ana anorexic?

She's too skinny, imo. That is the reason she has not been performing at the level she used to along with other factors such her being a mental headcase.

I think that You mixed-up Ana from RG2007 and RG2008 finals.

In 2008 final she is not that much a heavier than today - but compared with Ana from RG2008 final she is really much skinny today.

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

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

After all how she looks to us is secondary. It's up to how she feels, I believe. If she feels healthy and confident enough that the current conditions aren't impeding her performance through the course of the season, maybe it's not too far from her best shape for a tennis player and definitely we're not one to judge especially with zero inside information. If she gets feelings of lack of energy or muscle weakness and thinks the recovery process isn't working properly that would mean some changes are needed.

"It is estimated that up to 62 percent of females who participate in "appearance sports" such as gymnastics, figure skating, dancing, and diving are suffering from an active eating disorder like Anorexia, Bulimia or Compulsive Overeating."

"ELITE ATHLETES significantly higher rates of Eating Disorders compared to population controls (2) 20% elite female athletes met criteria for Eating Disorder vs. 9% female controls"


Do you honestly think it doesn't require strength to compete in gymnastics as it does tennis? The way I see it is, it's possible to compete at a high level in (certain) elite sports with an unhealthily low body-weight. It may not be sustainable long-term, but it is possible. Take Hantuchova for example. She was able to compete at a very low weight for half a year before she couldn't keep it up.

Cathy Rigby, Nadia Comaneci and Christy Henrich (RIP) competed while suffering from anorexia.





And by the way, you don't have to look like death warmed up to suffer from Anorexia Nervosa. 15%+ underweight looks different on everyone, and the disease has various stages and levels of severity.

We can't exactly judge Ana's condition, but she has lost a lot of weight in recent years and it seems unnecessary and a little worrying.




Daniela Hantuchova.

Casey Dellacqua, Jelena Jankovic, Anna-Lena Groenefeld,
Jelena Dokic, Mirjana Lucic, Sara Tomic, Sloane Stephens
Melanie Oudin, Zarina Diyas, Kaia Kanepi, Alison Riske

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

Ana needs to return to her 2008 shape at least. Then her game was based around pummelling groundstrokes, not on junkballing and bullshitting like she is right now. It's not as if being thin is actually better for her game anyway, because she hasn't replaced her fat with mass.

Serena. Simona. Ana. Petra. Venus.
Clijsters, Henin, Dementieva, Davenport.
Martina Hingis - "No one else played like Hingis - no one could."

to read some posters, as long as she shows up for work, she must be ok.

if people of opinion like these are friends or family of someone who develop this disease, clinical psychologists would call them enablers
