Ana Ivanovic

Ana Ivanović (born November 6, 1987, in Belgrade, SR Serbia, Yugoslavia) is a former World No. 1 Serbian tennis player. She won the 2008 French Open and was the runner-up in singles at the 2007 French Open and the 2008 Australian Open.

Ivanović is an offensive baseliner who is notable for her aggressive play. In 2007 and 2008, Ivanović was regarded as one of the best competitors on the women's tour. After winning the 2008 French Open and becoming #1, Ivanović has endured a significant slump in form.

Ivanović's serve is a powerful weapon. She hit a 124.9 mph (201.0 km/h) serve at the French Open in 2007. As of late, however, her serve has become unreliable – mostly due to technical issues with her ball toss.

Another one of Ivanović's strengths is her powerful forehand. It has been considered to be one of the best forehands in the game. Its fluid motion enables Ivanović to score many winners. Her backhand, although not as big as her forehand, has improved over the years. Ivanović's movement and net play were once considered to be her weaknesses, but they have both improved over the years.
