Re: Ana Ivanovic Pictures Thread vol.2
I completely disagree with the comments about Ana's weight. Just saw highlights of her match against McHale. She looks super fit, but definitely not too thin. I think people are forgetting that during most of Ana's slump, she WAS heavier and supposedly at the peak of her power. Ana lost confidence and having more weight/muscle on her body did nothing to prevent her decline.
The fact of the matter is that it wasn't until Ana lost weight that she regained confidence and her results improved. She also moves MUCH better than she did when she was #1. Have you seen Maria Sharapova lately?!? Maria is thinner/fitter than ever and her results speak for themselves. Serena Williams, Cristea, and Vika have also gotten better as a result of weight loss and improved fitness.
To be a top 5 player again, Ana needs to keep getting stronger mentally and improve technical aspects of her game: the serve, backhand, and use the swing volley more to finish points at the net. Physically, Ana is at her peak NOW. The girl looks phenomenal!
