Tennis - Former World No. 1 Ana Ivanovic says that if she had a choice of picking any doubles partner, dead or alive, the Serb says she would choose Roger Federer, the record holder for most Grand Slam titles won by any man.
In an interview to Sportsnet Canada, the 2008 French Open champion says, "Roger is obviously one of the greatest players of all time, maybe the best ever. Like everyone else, I am amazed by his beautiful style of play, and he’s a great person, too, so it would be a big honour to play doubles with him."
The Serbian beauty says that one of the reasons she has struggled after reaching the top spot was her desire to rush things. Ivanovic says, "It was hard not to panic: I so wanted to get back to the top, I was maybe rushing to do it and not realizing that it was going to be more of a process. I changed too many things when I should have been faithful to what got me to the top in the first place. And then the longer you go without showing your best form, the more confidence you lose. The way I was able to play my best tennis again was to be more relaxed and not put so much pressure on myself. I was able to stop thinking about the rankings."
