Former World No. 1 Ana Ivanovic and husband Bastian Schweinsteiger have posted a message on her social media account asking everyone to be responsible and safe as the world battles the COVID-19 outbreak. Ivanovic's message on her Instagram account read, “In these times it’s important to take care of yourself and your loved ones but also to have a respectful attitude towards your neighbors.
Keeping everyone safe has top priority. Therefore it‘s important to behave carefully and pay attention to the advice of experts. We are responsible for ensuring that the sick and the elderly do not have to expose themselves to additional danger.
The spread of the virus must be slowed down.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the many helpers and doctors who put themselves at risk to do everything they can to guide society through this difficult time. Stay healthy!” 32 year old Ivanovic was ranked No.
1 in the world in 2008, after she had defeated Dinara Safina to win the 2008 French Open. She was also the runner-up at the 2007 French Open and the 2008 Australian Open. She also won the year-end WTA Tournament of Champions twice, in 2010 and 2011.
