Re: Ana Ivanovic Videos thread

Thanks for the great video ! You can see that the program has been really successful in helping Ana, Fernando & Carro. Perhaps Ana made a mistake in leving it in the first place...but I'm glad she's back too it now. Hopefully they will get back to some basics with her so she can regain her confidence as a tennis player!

Re: Ana Ivanovic Videos thread

Video of Ana practicing yesterday in Tokyo. She talks to Sven and then to a bald man. I wonder who he is.. he was sitting next to Dragana in Ana's match against Safarova.



Two funny things. At the beginning of the video Ana is using her current blue and lime Yonex. From the middle to the end she is using her old one, the red and black.

But.. so many shanks and mishits in a 2 minutes video is never good..

Yeah, it's weird. Practising with a different racket to the one she uses in matches is never going to help...unless of course she is planning to go back to using the old red/black one

She's totally got a Dinara thing going on with her shirt there. Time to hire another fitness trainer Ana.

Yes.. she has put on some weight. The worst part though, is that she seems a lost slower and her footwork is terrible. That obviously also has a lot to do with the lack of fitness coach for the past few months. And that makes her lose the timing in her shots.

It's just a snowball effect at this point. More and more things are going wrong and it doesn't seem like she's being particularly proactive about stopping it.

Re: Ana Ivanovic Videos thread

These Ana videos are just too depressing to watch

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Re: Ana Ivanovic Videos thread

I was looking at some old videos of Ana praticing.. there is such a difference..

Let's start with Rome 2007. Sven had some big beer belly problem going on.. Ana was hitting pretty well.



RG 2007. That serve! And the smile.





Here we have Indian Wells 2008. So sharp! And great footwork. Ana seems to be having a lot of fun. Also, look at how thin she was!





This one is from Miami 2008. Ana was hitting with such conviction. Hear the sound of the ball.. those were spot on. And there is that smile there.. so nice to see.



Fast foward a bit and we have AO 2009. Ana seems a bit slow to me.. not hitting with too much conviction. But her shots still have sting to it.. she is a bit bigger than at IW/Miami 2008, but still pretty thin.



IW 2009. Some wild shots, but she seems to have fun.. and there is desire there.. some purpose in her shots. She didn't seem to have gained too much weight.





Eastbourne 2009. She is hitting well, despite some apparent chunks.. At least she looks like she wants to be playing. Ana already seemed a bit chubbier..





And the last one.. Tokyo 2009. Ana has terrible footwork, misses shot after shot and seems so down. She has also gained weight. Looking even a bit more chubby than her 2007 self. I don't think I've ever seen a worse practice video. She has lost all spark..



It's funny to look at these videos and see the progression.. or regression.. It's not surprising to see how well she was hitting in 2008, but how that turned into someone with no conviction in her shots in most of the 2009 videos. Even the sound coming out of her racquet is different. Also.. Ana was really thin a year ago.

Re: Ana Ivanovic Videos thread

Thanks for the vídeos guys!

I just found a sort of old one. It's from LA this year, a short interview for Tennis Warehouse.
