I'm watching Ana Ivanovic against Justine and the first thing I see is that Ana finally looks like she is in top shape. All the baby fat looks gone. She isn't chiseled but she just looks great all over.
Am I right about this?

I think she's moving slow. Justine looks twice as fast moving around the court.

but ana is not known to move fast, given her physique and size, she can never move as fast as a 5'5 justine.
i think she got the right mindset to say the least. come to the net, be aggressive, stay focussed. she had some very clinical finishes in the 1st set

Where are you watching it? I don't have any coverage here...

I'm asking though more or less about her body. She seems to be in pretty good shape finally.

:lol: Australia doesn't have coverage of this match.

You're not missing much. Justine played a bad first game and now is serving 52.
Ivanovic looks slower than ever. But without the extra weight she used to carry.

Ana moved pretty well on a breakpoint, but didn't win it. 2nd set now

wtf is going on in this match? Looks like Henin will pull it out, but just looking at stats, neither is serving too well.

Ana looks lean and fit.

Ana never will be so fast as henin, because her physique, but she as moving faster than a year ago. A if still work hard can improve the shape :)

Yes I agree that Ana does look slimmer and more fit than ever before
Jan 10th, 2008, 03:15 PM
She does look very fit. I think her movement is better than it has been before (despite the fact that it's still not up to par with Justine).

I think winnning a set for the very first time from Henin shows how better ANNA than hr previous form.As far as I see she will break her chance and she will be talked a ot about her this year.The previous third set winners and exhibition loss doesnot show anything. Australian Open will show what does Anna really want and where does she belong.My only concern is her new racket.After using Wilson such along timeand now Yonex.
I wish her luck,by the way.

Ana looked amazing. Her fitness coach is doing his job. She's poised for stardom. I am glad she got a set off Justine. I hope she learns from this and does really well at the AO.

Ana has lost weight and she does look slimmer. However, it hasn't improved her movement. She's a top-ten player, a challenger for a title, but not a certified champion.
