:o :o :o

holy crap, how long has this thread been here? ana ivanovic is great, one of the young rising stars of womens tennis, i dont think shes even 18 yet, anyhow, she has a good game that seems to get better with every tournament she plays, when shes out playing on the tennis court she doesnt really look that great, but when she dresses up for photo shoots, she looks like a total fox!!!!!! :drool:

just if anyones cares, shes in the second round of wimbledon now, and she should beat her next opponent to advance to the 3rd round

her official web site is www.anaivanovic.com

She's gorgeous, in my opinion.

Does need a little cardio to lose the baby fat though ;)

I hope she doesn't implode, tennistically, like Anna Kournikova. I saw her beat Mauresmo (who, in all fairness, was somewhat sluggish that day) at the French Open, and I couldn't take my eyes off her gorgeous face. If I've ever seen anything exemplify "Beauty and the Beast", that match certainly did :blush:
