Is it true that the fitness coach/trainer is the same person who was with her when she won RG?
Last year after Wimbledon she hired Marija Lojanica, who was a fitness consultant for the Serbian Fed Cup team and a close friend of Ana's. They worked together until just before Indian Wells this year. During this period, Ana lost a considerable amount of weight, and the split was supposedly due to a dispute over how much muscle Ana needed.
She worked sparingly with Gil Reyes (Agassi's former fitness coach) on the Adidas Player Development Program from Indian Wells until Wimbledon, taking his tips and advice and probably working on his machines in Las Vegas, where she practiced before and after Miami.
She is back with Scott Byrnes since Wimbledon this year, who was her fitness coach from late 2006 until after Wimbledon 2009, including during her peak years of 2007-2008.
Ana Ivanovic is now retired.

Re: Ana Ivanovic's Dramatic Weight Loss: Any One Concerned... Yet??
she was kind of fat when she won RG.
She's skinny now and not unhealthily so but I hope that she didn't just shed the pounds but instead replaced it with lean muscle. She needs to pull a davenport 2005 (who was also a big girl) and get herself lean and muscley.
