Very cute Tennis Channel feature on Ana. They show this video often before her matches that are on TC, but they finally now put it up on youtube.


Apathetic Ana Ivanovic fan.

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)

Thanks Brent! (Aravanecaravan)

I'm sure that's not the only thing they did in practice though. She looks like she's just trying to get the groove on her shots. Also there's a bit more movement there than it appears. Brent did a great job following her around when she did move, but I agree that her hitting partner is obviously taking it easy and not making her run. That's okay though, it's kind of a warmup I suppose. Of course Ana should realise that this kind of practice is much easier than hitting in a match.

Re: Ana Ivanovic Videos thread

There are at least 5 videos of Ana practicing in Miami and for sure it's not the only thing she does. Just like Howard suggested, it looks like a regular warm up, it's necessary.

Re: Ana Ivanovic Videos thread

They do that a lot in practice...well every player does it. They spend like 30 mins just standing there drilling the ball down the middle and they never miss...then by the end they usually play points, after doing serve and volleying practice.

Lucie Safarova, Anna-Lena Groenefeld, Agnieszka Radwanska

I watched only some parts of trainings when I was at Serbia Open, but it was my impression too. Something like warm up before the match, only much longer. At least that's how I think it is during the tournament. I believe that in other situations (for example: preparing for the clay season, grass season, off season preparations) it's completely different.

Re: Ana Ivanovic Videos thread

Yeah, during a tournament it's always the same method...exactly like you say. No doubt she did plenty of points and hard work before and during the tournament, but that clip shows the basic hitting down the middle part of the warm up.

Lucie Safarova, Anna-Lena Groenefeld, Agnieszka Radwanska

Re: Ana Ivanovic Videos thread

I think an Ana vs Adam Scott tennis match would be pretty good to watch. I wonder what the score would be.

Double bagel I bet.

Yes, as you all suggested, those things are all plausible.

And then there is the possibility she was just standing there mesmerized by me.

Re: Ana Ivanovic Videos thread

as guys said above thatīs an usual warm up during the practice.... then they work on their volleys and services and play a practice set against each other... during the whole practice the coach says to the player what to improve what to make in a different way... thatīs a regular routine....

Re: Ana Ivanovic Videos thread

Just realized the elephants are PINK! Hilarious


I wonder if this is deliberate.
When was this filmed, anyone knows?

Would be sooo coool if she were able to joke with herself like that - giving a nod to the pink elephant

OR, is she channeling her inner elephant again?



(Someone please find the video of the above elephantworthy climbing I couldn't)

Or both? (fingers crossed)

Re: Ana Ivanovic Videos thread

Don't know if u guys have seen this, but here is a video of Ana speaking for Dubai Duty Free:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AyHSz...ayer_embedded#!

Although I am not really her fan, she does look really hot and suprisingly speaks well in this video. Enjoy
