Three-time Grand Slam champion and former world No.1 Lindsay Davenport expressed her appreciation of young Serbian tennis star Ana Ivanovic complimenting both Ivanovic’s physical appearance and her on and off court behavior.
Speaking during this week’s Pacific Life Open in Indian Wells, Davenport said: “I think that Ivanovic is one of the prettiest girls we have playing, and she’s sweet and competitive and graceful at the same time.”
When asked to comment on the rise of two Serbian players, Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, who are now both in the Top 5 and face each other tonight in Indian Wells semifinals, Davenport said: “I think they’re great, and they are two completely opposite girls. Ivanovic is a really super nice girl. I know her a little bit more, and I’m a big fan of hers.” (source: Ana Ivanovic’s website)
I love this story. So sweet and lovely when tennis players compliment one another like this. Really candid and true.
The sweetest tennis player EVER!!! Love you ANA!!!
