Ana Ivanovic is a former No. 1 player in the world in women’s tennis and I wouldn’t be surprised if you’ve never even heard of her before. If that’s the case, here’s some advice: Do better.
The 27-year-old Serbian is currently ranked fifth in the world as a winner of 15 WTA Tour singles titles. Want money? She’s made just over $13 million in her career. Even as the 2008 French Open champion has endured struggles dealing with the fame and attention that comes with major global success, she’s still become one of the biggest names in tennis. Why? Well…I think you can see for yourself.
Outside of her one-of-a-kind style and authenticity, Ivanovic is known for her aggressive style on the court, bringing the heat and dictating the play to her opponents with her almost unstoppable forehand. Competitors have often called it the best shot in the world.
With size — she’s 6-0 — Ivanovic really excels on the clay courts. Because of that height, she can handle high bounces and tough balls, smashing winners from awkward positions that most female players aren’t used to. That’s helped her turn in a resurgent 2014 year, which includes massive wins over both Williams sisters, Serena and Venus. After a few years of struggling, she’s right back on top.
But I can probably guess why you’re here. Her style is truly dope. One of a kind. Ana is out there beating back the comp, taking names, and looking good while doing it. Here are 8 Ana Ivanovic Instagram Pictures to Make the Fiends Go Crazy.
