Ivanovic and Vekic try their hand at cricket

Source: http://m.wtatennis.com/default.aspx?...ay&aid=3889518BIRMINGHAM, England - WTA stars Ana Ivanovic and Donna Vekic took some time out before the Aegon Classic to visit Edgbaston Stadium, trading cricket bats for racquets and providing the half-time entertainment in the Natwest T20 Blast game between the Birmingham Bears and Durham Jets.

They hit serves at each other and Ivanovic even padded up at the crease to swipe Vekic's away.

"It was great fun," Ivanovic said. "I only knew a little bit about cricket before today, but it was exciting to get out on the pitch. It's fantastic to see everyone having a great time at the cricket.

"I hope they all come and watch us play at the Aegon Classic too."

"It was very cool to play out there and wear the pads and all the cricket gear," WTA Rising Star Vekic said of the experience. "I hit the stumps a few times in practice so I think I did pretty well!"


“Hold fast to dreams,
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird,
That cannot fly."

Very nice! So many tennis shots often resemble cricket shots and vice versa.

Something tells me Ana would make an excellent left handed bowler.
