Earlier on today, Ana Ivanovic sat down in-between practice sessions for a small Press Conference here at the Generali Ladies Linz event. She touched on a number of topics, including Caroline Wozniacki, a possible career in design, Serbia at the Davis Cup and more.
The video cuts out in the middle of the conference because I came in late, not having a clue where it was being held. As you can see, she was in a very chilled mood and answered every question (yes, even the ones about her private life), and she seemed genuinely happy to be at the event. If she was tired from 4 straight weeks on the road, she certainly didnâ€™t show it.
Though there wasnâ€™t much we havenâ€™t already heard, her answer to the question about jealousy around the lockerroom was pretty interesting. I remember around Wimbledon last year she was talking about how a lot of the girls on tour are jealous and she has been unable to form any attatchments with her fellow players. However, this year she seems to be singing a completely different tune. Maybe her reaching out to her fellow players a little more is a factor in her increasing form? However, there is a line, Ana, and you crossed it when you agreed to play doubles with Yanina Wickmayer at Luxembourg next week.
(Sorry about the sound, I was standing quite a distance away)
