Re: Ana Ivanovic's Dramatic Weight Loss: Any One Concerned... Yet??

Bit of an exaggeration. Yes, she has lost weight, but it ain't that bad. Plus she has her former fitness trainer (Scott Byrnes) back and they're working on building her back up again.

I hope this is true.

I pose this question in the opening post

My only concern about her losing weight is that it might also affect her power.

Yes, that is a concern, but she displayed some power tennis last night.

But who knows what will happen next if she continues to lose weight.

I think she/her management are well aware of the potential problem, and if I remember correctly in her statement after splitting with Lojanica, Ana said she didn't like the fact that she had lost too much weight/muscle, and had been getting out of energy quickly during the matches... probably Scott Byrnes will work on this...

This makes more sense to me than those who think because she looks nice and not sickly, everything must be OK.

They probably did not hear Ana's own concerns.

Personnally it's not because I think she looks nice or not sick that I'm not concerned, it's because losing weight was something she needed to if she wanted to have a long carreer. NO need to carry extra weight. Yes the fact that she's not sickly thin is surely a good thing too. The problem when a player loses alot of weight it's that it needs an adaptation time. You can't expect to have good results instantly. You need to adjust your game, diet, pre and post match routine, your training etc. It takes alot of time to your body to adjust to all those changes so yes you can feel more tired and lack of energy. It is concerning for a player to feel all those changes but in the long run (if she does it correctly with good people following her) it should really pay off. Many players have done that change, Aleksandra WOzniak has slimmed down ALOT since her injury and she's been playing really well lately, but she has took the time to work hard in and off the gym. When she just got back people were saying she needed more muscles tone and i'm sure she's been workin on that. Ana just needs to yes being careful but also to trust her body and realise that this is a good thing for her career in the long run. I mean SHE has put all the work to slim down like that so she should know all the things she needs to do to make this change work. I'm much more concern by the fact she's concerned about it, she would have done this without really knowin what she was getting into??

As long as Ana's weight loss is not dramatic and her nutritional needs are met, it should help her movement on the court. The weight room should compensate for any weight loss and loss of power.

One way or another EVERY athlete continues this 'this exploratory process of trial-and-error' forever.

A thirty year old athlete is rare the same physically as at seventeen.

yah I think it's the problem of this thread, her weight loss has nothing dramatic, she no where as skinny as Alona Bondarenko or what Hantuchova used to be. Those are DRAMATICS, Ivanovic just looks like she's been putting some hard work to lose the fat.

Re: Ana Ivanovic's Dramatic Weight Loss: Any One Concerned... Yet??

She's got the same disease that Dani had: a perfect example of ''wannabeamodelitis''. Seriously what concerns me is that she's lost a lot of muscle mass and it's never a good sign when your collar bone is so prominent.
