Honestly, as my favorite player, if she doesn't dedicate her life to this sport by getting a sports psychologist's help, then no.

Ana Ivanovic (6. Nov 1987 born) is still youngest person on this planet (man or women) which reach Grand Slam final in tennis singles - and she do it already three time (including one title).

So what is next? To create thread like this about De Brito or Laura Robson after first early career slump???

She'll be back in the top 5 in 2 years. I think.
By that time likely Elena, Safina, and Venus will find themselves out of the top 5.
Justine and Kim will be back in the top 5 and there will just be enough space for Ana to sneak her way back in.

This isnt a huge ordeal, her mental game hasnt clicked for some reason - pressure, weight of expectations etc but all great champions have slumped. Its better that Ana does some soul searching and finds herself while she is still young, able to learn and able to avoid the full brute of the worldwide media. Sadly, I think Ana is just too nice - she lacks the drive to dish these girls the bagel that her talent could serve out with ease but champions dont stay down long and neither will Ana. At least she is healthy, wealthy and young :)

Uhh wha? Hewitt is youngest for men and Hingis for women :weirdo:For Your information Hewitt is born in 1981 and Hingis (1980) case is not even active anymore. So thread like Do you think Lleyton Hewitt already passed his peak and will never return Top 5? has sense to me, but like I say Ana is right now only 21 year old (or Younger) person on Earth which ever reach GS final... so it's pointless to start thread like this in 2009 when all current TOP5 (TOP7 actually) is at least 2 years older than Ivanovic, including #2,#3,#4 which is all three over 6 years older than Ana.

To be fair, you need to clarify your posts more dude. What you said earlier was NOT true, so its understandable people are going to call you out on it.

What is not clear?

But obviously moderators here is traditionally blind when must to notice something pointless in "AGAINST Ivanovic" GM threads :p

Of course she's not too old. She just needs to take a breather and get her head on straight before she goes the way of Vaidisova.

She has the talent and potential to, but so far, not the mindset. If that doesn't change, then I say no. :sobbing: But she still is capable of doing it. Hopefully she will because she is great for the WTA and the sport is much better off with her near the top.

No, she will get back to her winning ways.
I just think she needs a bit of a break and some belief.
Next year will be different, she'll be back.

Ana will be back, I don't of if she'll be on top and dominate, but I'm sure her game is still there and she can do some damage. It's all in her head.

I think I'm getting what you're trying to say now. You're saying Ana is the youngest person currently holding a Grand Slam but not the youngest person to win a Grand Slam (that goes to Martina Hingis then Maria). Need to work on the English a bit. :cool:

You're saying Ana is the youngest person currently holding a Grand Slam but not the youngest person to win a Grand Slam (that goes to Martina Hingis then Maria). Need to work on the English a bit. :cool:Ana Ivanovic is NOW 21 Years Old and she won slam last season when she played also 2 slam finals and reach #1 and she lose her 50+ weeks consistently TOP5 status just couple months ago. She is also newest tennis player which won some GS (following by Djokovic and Mauresmo)...etc... What the hell almost 30 years old Martina Hingis has with all this arguments? She won her first slam in 1997 (last final reach in 2002) and if she backs again of course that creating thread like this about Hingis is not pointless even if TOP20 margine will be used.

To not waste more time about this here is some relevant facts about 3 of current WTA TOP4 players:
#2 Serena Williams reach TOP5 already in XX century but when lose that status in 2004 she must to wait 2008 to back again in TOP5 and case of her older sister Venus is even more interesting because she has bigger TOP5 pause - between 2003 and 2009, but still come back to TOP5 this season at 29. Elena Dementieva (1981 born) reach TOP5 in 2004 and finally lose that status already next year till 2nd half of last year. For example during Australian Open 2007 Serena is ranked about #80 and sister Venus about #50...

If we not count still Young WTA stars Ana Ivanovic and Maria Sharapova, all XXI century WTA Grand Slam champions which is able to reach first Grand Slam final & TOP5 rankings before 22th birthday lose after that even WTA TOP15 status for at least several months (both Sisters, both Belgians and Capriati even lose TOP50 status at some point) already before 23/24 birthday, but than all of them not only back to TOP5 again, but also winning at least one slam after that "out of TOP15" crisis. Latest example is Svetlana Kuznetsova which reach career first slam final and TOP5 spot during 2004, finished next 2005 season at #18, but in upcoming years she spend many weeks in TOP5 again and won another GS title this year again! I dont think that Ana Ivanovic (or Maria Sharapova also) will be exception from this rules... especially I don't see any sense for opening this thread already in 2009 when Ana is still 21y old and still not even out of TOP15. :shrug:
