There is nothing unprofessional
in what is Ana doing right now
Actually, this shows how big professional she is all the time, no matter on circumstances or personal feelings.
She save whole this MM tournament just with hers presence there - no matter on hers "current" rankings and slump problems she is still 3rd or 4th most welcomed WTA (super)star for every WTA tour event around world! Ana knows that she is still not ready for day-to-day challenge, she is pissed-off from Australian part of 2013 season because whats happen in Hopman Cup final and AO R16 round where both times she has big expectations, she finally again have new
boy, she will play FED CUP also - but still Ana come there in Thailand at end of the world on that small tournament! Majority of Ivanovic fans not understand this, but at least I'm sure that Pattaya organizers and WTA Tour officials are very grateful to Ana for all this big efforts!
I'm also very disappointed with this unexpected first round loss, I expected 2nd round lose - but of course I forgive her, not only because I really don't care about MM events, but also because no doubt for me that Ana will beat Ayumi if there is no rain!
How big is my respect about Ana Ivanovic professionalism You can see clean in this my last week prediction:
So despite I know that Ana is not ready for day-to-day matches and that injury prevention is priority for Ana in February, I still predicted for Ana quarterfinal in Dubai! Why? Because I know how professional Ana is, and as Dubai Duty Free global brand ambassador she will even take risk of injuries and play hers best current tennis, and wins at least two matches in the row, which is little bit irresponsible - but that's Ana and she will take that risk!
