BELGRADE, Dec 23 (Reuters) - Top Serbian women's tennis player Ana Ivanovic has set the record straight about her Fed Cup plans in 2007.
The world number 14, who played in Fed Cup ties for Serbia in April this year, said on Saturday some quotes in a newspaper about her 2007 plans had been invented.
She told her website: (www.anaivanovic.com):
"All I can say is that the current plan is not to play Fed Cup next year. My priority is to stay healthy and not put too much stress on my shoulder. I don't want to play too much tennis - that is the same reason why I won't play so much doubles.
"My main goal at the moment is to reach the top 10 so I would prefer to play in tournaments rather than this Fed Cup zonal tie (in Bulgaria) in April.
"But if everything goes well and I am healthy I will consider playing in future Fed Cup matches."
