Ana Ivanovic, born on November 6, 1987 in Belgrade, SFR Yugoslavia, is a Serbian tennis player famous for being the 2008’s rank no. 1. She is the daughter of Dragana and Miroslav. She started to play tennis at the age of five after watching professional tennis player Monica Seles on television. In 2004, she joined the Junior Wimbledon tournament and reached the finals but eventually lost to Kateryna Bondarenko. It was in the year 2005 when she earned her first career singles title and was qualified for the Canberra International in Australia when she defeated Melinda Czin. In 2006, she finished off as the 14th best ranked women tennis player in the world. Eventually in 2008, she won the Grand Slam singles title and won the French open, beating Dinara Safina.
When Ana was asked about her fitness routine, she said, “I’ve always thought it is important to have a lot of variety in your training, to keep things interesting. Although I am very motivated by my love of competing, of course there are some days when training might be more difficult than usual, but if you’re doing plenty of different and new activities it’s easier. Lately I’ve been doing some weights work in the gym, to improve my strength. That hasn’t been easy, because weights are not so much fun, but I just focused on the ultimate goal of improving my tennis, and that helped motivate me through.”
And what about her diet? Ana explained that she’s practicing a Gluten-free diet. “As much as I can, my diet is Gluten-free, but it’s not always possible, especially when travelling to places like Asia and South America; it’s easier to find Gluten-free products in the States and England,” she said.
