Ana wants to get to know fellow players...and talk about fashion.

Just read an interview with Ana (http://www.heraldsun.com.au/sport/gi...-1226222622993).

Quote:
"Maybe we (women) would perform much better if we could relax a little more and let it go.

"The things with men's tennis is that it's set up a bit differently and I feel it's more relaxed. They just don't seem to stress about the small things.

...

Ivanovic nominated Romanian rival Sorana Cirstea as her best friend on tour, but wished the atmosphere was more conducive to getting to know other females better on a personal level.

"The key is trying to find a balance and men seem to do that better," she said. "I think the guys do hang out more - they spend more time together than the girls do.

"It might be hard for us to support each other because the tour can be very competitive. Maybe it's getting a bit better than when I started. The girls are a bit more relaxed, but it's still not the same as the men's side of things.

"Novak for example, he hangs out with a lot of the guys.

"It's a shame in a way. We spend so much time together on tour throughout the year. We travel and work together.

"But we don't get to know each other or spend a lot of time as people or have girls' talk about fashion or whatever."
I thought that players do practice together (with few exceptions, of course), therefore are rather friendly. So I am rather surprised what Ana was saying. Also, not sure whether all of them want to talk fashion.

I think that' the wta tour has a bit of a responsibility in a way in regards to this. The tour in marketed in a way that fosters these stupid rivalries instead of showcasing girls working hard together as a group to make something of themselves. It's catty and it's drama. Ana is right . But it's up to the players to make the effort too maybe she isnt as friendly as she says but it would be nice to see them all as one unit .

Re: Ana wants to get to know fellow players...and talk about fashion.

And it doesn't help that tennis fans are morons that like picking one player of another and bashing them for there
Looks or some
Random thing they said. Lol the players pick up on that I'm sure

The reason that the girls don't hang out is because all women hate each other. They'll deny it to the end of time but we all know the truth.

This Except I'm not denying it, in fact I'm agreeing

I'm guessing with the girls on tour there will be a tendency to be even more hostile towards other players just because there's a lot more at stake in their everyday lives. There's not much they can do about it, it's just human nature.

Re: Ana wants to get to know fellow players...and talk about fashion.

Meh. I think that some of it's the fact it's the women's tour, and some of it comes down to personalities and the slightly bizarre life these women lead. I think in some ways they don't go through some of the socializing processes (normal school life, hanging out with friends, etc.) because they spend all their time with coaches and parents practicing and going to tournaments. (Yes, guys do it to, but I think the leash is often a little looser on a son than a daughter. Not saying it's fair or right, but I see it even at juniors. 16-year-old boys show up alone, girls show up with parents in tow).

Some players seem to universally liked, though, like Sveta, and the Polish Posse and the Russian Mafia also seemed to get along as a large groups of friends.

Ana's always bitching about this, but maybe she's just an introvert who's only going to have a few close friends around her. I think TOB is certainly that way, and Venus, too (just to show I'm not picking on Ana). There's nothing wrong with being an introvert and only having one or two really close friends on the tour.

Ana should go on to a Fashion career while she is still fresh.
WTA is a competitive, individual, sport, with highly motivated, competitive athletes.
The locker room is not a a beauty salon where women go to catch up on the latest fashion buzz.

I thought she craves men companionship. I have seen a few pictures of her on the practice court with the top ATP men during major events.

Could it be she just can't stand being by herself for a few moments?

I don't know why but I imagined this as an episode of The Bachelor, and Ana had 'nominated' Sorana to be her best friend by giving her the rose.

Also I think this all comes down to Ana, she doesn't exactly have the best personality to talk to, have a conversation with or anything. She's just like Karen Smith.

Fashion? FASHION? Ana, love, real "girls' talk" is about sex not fucking fashion.


It's later than you think...
