Scott leaves... Ana is all alone, all alone.

What do you think?

Waiting for Ana Ivanovic to just retire already .

Re: Ana's new coach - who will it be?

I have no idea...

All we know is that she is looking for someone who is a former player who had tour/slam success and can help with point construction/shot selection.

I'm not very familiar with coaches, so I have no idea who could fill those characteristics.

Mental Strength is an underrated ability, it sets champions apart

Making mistakes is human, repeating them is dumb.

What I write is my opinion, and my opinion only.

I'm hoping it will be Hana Mandlikova

Is she coaching now?

It has to be someone who can also work on Ana's mental game. She needs to stop losing tight matches.. stop going away in third sets.. stop losing concentration after a bad UE.

Please keep us posted if you DO hear anything...as I'm sure you will.You'll LOVE it when Ana gets a coach since it'll give you a second person to micro-analyze.......

Mommy Dementiewa. Looks like she dropped Lena since she didn't go to Melbourne.

Ana Ivanović.

I'm quite bummed about Mommy Vera you know.. I'm almost rooting for Dementieva to win the whole thing after reading that Mommy Vera is sick and that's her motivation to win, to dedicate it to her mom.

If I find anything, I'll post it.

I've read in Ana's official forum that Djokovic was asked about her in his interview after his win over Baghidatis and he said he had spoken to Ana by phone and that she was leaving for Europe.

I read an article in GM about it. But they don't say anything about the illness, just that she is sick and because of it couldn't travel with Dementieva. I hope it's nothing serious.

And I agree with you about Ana.. Old Ana, come back ASAP!

Re: Ana's new coach - who will it be?

Eric van Harpen is free again. Maybe Ana & Maria can trade?

If she wants a former player, then I can't make a suggestion now. I don't know which players want to be a coach.
But at least let it be someone with a smart game, certainly no hardhitter.
Maybe someone of the Sanchez family can help her again.


1. Ana Ivanovic

2. Maria Kirilenko
3. Anastasija Sevastova

I wouldn't like Eric Van Harpen. He already worked with Ana. I think she needs totally new blood now.. someone to give her new ideas and new energy.

She is looking for someone who can help her with point construction, so I suppose it won't be a brainless ballbasher ex player. It will probably be someone known for smart play, I guess..

That is such a long time ago that you also can call it 'new'.
But I don't think he gets the job.
I don't have any options for Ana. I just make my opinion when I hear the name.
