Yesterday Ana Ivanovic told us to tune in to her Facebook on Wednesday at 6 pm UK time for an important announcement. Most of us thought she would tell us she was pregnant or that she would retire from professional tennis, and the latter happened.
In a short live stream, Ivanovic announced that she's ending her tennis career and the decision is effective immediately. The 29-year-old, who got married in July this year, focused on the positive side, acknowledging her career peaks such as the 2008 Roland Garros title, No.1 ranking and 14 more WTA titles. Since injuries have prevented her from being able to perform at high standards, Ivanovic has decided to move on and focus on other things such being an ambassador of sport and healthy life, exploring opportunities in business, beauty and fashion, as well as continuing her philanthropic activities.
Let's celebrate Ana's career with this video from the golden era of the Serb's pro tennis days:
