Re: ~Ana's articles~
I prefer her latest interview for "Vecernje Novosti".Journalist is a brave man, he was asking the right questions:
1) You've won 2 "small" titles in 2 years. On what result is based your optimism ?
Ana: "I'm aware of that.But look at Kvitova,she didn't won many titles,but she got a GS".
2)You can beat the best players and ,next day, you can lose to an avarage one. Why?
Ana: "Confidence is very important.I have had a lot of bad and negative experiences and i've
lost many matches that i should have won. That's why i feel bigger pressure when i'm
playing against lower ranked opponents".
3)People say that you've lost your motivation, that you play because of commitments to your
sponsors, that you are not hungry anymore. Is that true?
Ana "I know the truth,everyone is entitled to their opinion.There were too many people around
me,who gave me the wrong advice, but now i can make my own decisions and make my own
4)Are you satisfied with your current ranking?
Ana:"No,of course.I'm used to be at the top.When i'm playing,i feel that people look at me as
i am still #1, or top5 player, and that creates some sort of pressure".
5)You always talk about GS, titles, and, yet, you don't have results to back up that kind of
Ana: "Yes,i know. That is an additional pressure. I thought i could win a title in China,i
played well there. But Nigel and i - we want to improve my service and we are working on
some specific elements in my game".
Then she said: "I should have done same thing as Sharapova - not to play that much when i had a difficult time, when i was injured. She didn't forced things, she took a break from tennis, she didn't play much. I haven't done the same, because i had a team around me, who kept telling me: "You have to play, you have to play!"...That was a big mistake, i played instead of having good preparations . I was always in the situation to chase something, because i didn't practiced ,and i didn't play much. In such circumstances i couldn't expect better results".
