Ana's Comments in Regards to Sharapova

Well some of Ana's comments in an interview have caused a bit of a stir and I can’t say I’m too happy about it either. Some of her remarks come across as arrogant and I really wish she would just concentrate on improving her game.

Here is the thread which discusses the article:

This also stood out to me.

Many people are already talking about you as the next world No.1. Are you convinced of this?
I certainly win the prize for the player who has made the fastest progress, but it’s still not enough for me.
Maybe the translation isn’t too flash and some things are taken out of context. I sure hope that’s what happened because if not maybe I don’t know her as well as I thought I did…

Re: Ana's Comments in Regards to Sharapova

I think there was a big problem with the translation... That comment by Ana that u quoted certainly seems to me like she actually said
"I won the award for most improved" If you look at it, it kinda means the same...

Or maybe the article itself was written wrong coz that last part doesn't seem like Ana to me either!

Re: Ana's Comments in Regards to Sharapova

the original interview is also on her homepage
http://www.anaivanovic.com/?lang=sr&...etailpage=1444

maybe somebody can translate it, so we can find out if it's a translation mistake or not

Yeh I agree, what was quoted doesn't seem like something Ana would say. I think you're on the money with what you said.

Re: Ana's Comments in Regards to Sharapova

the original article was in italian. i suppose the interview was conducted in either serbian or english, then translated into italian and then (back) into english. there is a lot of room for making translation errors there. but even so, i don't think these comments are that bad. ana doesn't want to be compared to sharapova, that's it.

the best part of the interview is when she calls her father to save her from nosy journalists, hehe.

Re: Ana's Comments in Regards to Sharapova

I didn't like that "She doesn't talk to anyone..." That wasn't the question...
I think that Ana is talking too much these days (Stosur top 10 )
Play tennis Ana, be the best...let others

in her diary ana confirmed what we had suspected:

Unfortunately something was lost in the translation of my interview with Gazzetta because I definitely didn’t say those things about Sharapova, or about “sweating like a pig”! I would never say things like that.

Love

Re: Ana's Comments in Regards to Sharapova

But she did say that she Shaza never talks with other players... That's not Ana's to say... By the way Jelena Janković told me the same thing today

Actually JJ likes Sharapova. She said that she is with her just on hello, but has nothing against her. She speaks alot with Yuri though. One time Shaza told JJ just "You look hot"

Can anyone recall if Ana has used the word "improve", when describing her game, more times before or after Serbia's President Boris Tadic's letter to her in 2005?
