Smartasses Magazine Top 100 - Female EmpowermentAna Ivanovic Bio – Smartasses Magazine Ana Ivanovic (born November 6, 1987) is a Serbian professional tennis player. Her mother Dragana, is a lawyer, and her father Miroslav is a self employed businessman. In September 2014, Ivanovic began dating German professional footballer, Bastian Schweinsteiger. In her spare time, she studies finance at university in Belgrade, and the Spanish language.

Competing as a professional since 2003, Ivanovic first picked up a racket at age five after watching Monica Seles, a fellow Yugoslav, on television, and started her career after memorizing the telephone number of a local tennis clinic from an advertisement. During the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia, she was forced to train during the morning to avoid bombardments, and later admitted that she trained in an abandoned swimming pool during the winter, as no tennis facilities were available. After turning pro, by the age of eighteen, Ivanovic had already defeated well established players, such as Svetlana Kuznetsova, Nadia Petrova, Vera Zvonareva and Amélie Mauresmo. Over the course of her career, Ivanovic has also defeated many other top players including Maria Sharapova, Venus Williams, Serena Williams, Dinara Safina, Martina Hingis, Jelena Janković, Agnieszka Radwańska, Caroline Wozniacki, Petra Kvitová, Simona Halep and Victoria Azarenka. Ranked No. 1 in the world in 2008, Ivanovic beat Dinara Safina to win the 2008 French Open, was the runner-up at the 2007 French and 2008 Australian Opens, and also qualified for the WTA Tour Championships in 2007, 2008 and 2014, winning the year-end WTA Tournament of Champions in 2010 and 2011. In June 2011, she was named one of the 30 Legends of Women’s Tennis: Past, Present and Future by Time magazine, and was also included on the list of the Top 100 Greatest Players Ever by reporter Matthew Cronin. As of 2016, Ivanovic has career earnings of over $15 million.

Ivanovic is an offensive baseliner with an aggressive play. When on form, her serve has hit 124.9 mph, the fifth fastest serve of all time on the WTA Tour. Ivanovic’s forehand, a flat stroke hit with not a lot of topspin which gives it its power, is said to be one of the best forehands in the game. Conversely, her backhand is weaker, and is often targeted by players acquainted with her playing style. Her cross-court backhand generally lacks the depth required to throw her opponents off course as well. Ivanovic’s best surface is the clay court, where her height allows her to strike clean shots off high-bouncing balls.

On September 8, 2007, Ivanovic became a UNICEF National Ambassador for Serbia, taking special interest in the fields of education and child protection. She has appeared as a character in the video games Smash Court Tennis 3, Virtua Tennis, Grand Slam Tennis for Wii, Top Spin 4, Virtua Tennis 4 and Grand Slam Tennis 2. Ivanovic was the inspiration for the song Hurricane Ana, produced by Serbian rapper Filip Filipi and Collie Buddz.

Why we think she’s hot:

With her Scorpio passion and Adriana Lima good-looks, despite losing to her at the 2008 Australian Open, it’s no wonder how Ana Ivanovic was still able to usurp the coveted, media spawned Darling of Tennis title from leggy Maria Sharapova in the shadow of that defeat. Not only is Miss Ivanovic an absolute badass between the two baselines, fist-pumping her way into the hearts of men & women alike, her hair, eyes and skin tone are so positively perfect, she’s made the colors salmon, pink and aqua blue her bitch.
