Ivanovic Wins French Open 2008



Last night, it was my first time to watch French Open Tennis Tournament and luckily, Anna Ivanovic, a twenty-year-old professional tennis player from Serbia was hailed as the overall champion in women's singles, beating Dinara Safina of Russia 6-4, 6-3.

Winning the French open for the first time, Ivanovic or rather be called as Anci her nickname, she was also proclaimed as the first Serbian woman to win a Grand Slam. Truth is, Safina-Ivanovic final match was really rough. There were lots of awesome edges and unforgettable tennis moves there. I don't really know Safina but what can I only say about her is, she was very meticulous in her hot-tempered moves and the way she hits the ball was surprisingly powerful. I hope I can see more of her in the next tournaments.

On the other hand, there's this super cool version of Safina- non other than Anna Ivanovic. I saw her played once with Maria Sharapova and from that moment on, I felt this Hey-You-Nailed-Baby! factor in her. Sharapova was nice but Ivanovic was different. She's hip and much cooler.

While watching the French Open finals last night, Ivanovic was a cool bomb, displaying a sanguine disposition throughout the game. Despite of the nerve-cracking nerves flooding in her, she still has this I-Am-Enjoying-This-Game-No-Matter-What smile on her face.


"I still can't believe what happened!,"
said a joyful Ana. "The crowd was amazing, they've been a great support. I've got no words to describe that. Last year's final was a great learning experience for me and I could make it this time (anaivanovic.com)"

This is the reason why Ivanovic is my tennis chick from now on. Just nail it, Ana!

I have to start out by saying that I appreciate reading a blog post about Ana Ivanovic that avoids the stereotypes of typecasting her as just another pretty tennis player. Your blog post recognizing her victory was very insightful. I also enjoyed the fact that you recognized her differences compared to Maria Sharapova, "Sharapova was nice but Ivanovic was different. She's hip and much cooler". My one request would be that the next time you discuss Ms. Ivanovic, that you possibly explore her potential both on and off the court. With her current success in the marketing and endorsement world, it seems as though there is an extremely bright future for her. With the success of her website because of the amounts of hits it receives as well as unique viewers, it appears it is a companies dream to align themselves with her brand. Having sponsors such as Rolex and Adidas will also help entice more company's to align themselves with her because it will create a total brand that is as or more valuable then those of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Her ability to draw in the average male sports fan not accustomed to watching women's tennis as well as appealing to women who are fans and those who are not is also a very valuable attribute. Often when fans hear an athlete speak they are turned off, but when Ana speaks, she is able to show her personality and appreciation to be in the position that she is. This was shown when you quoted her as saying, "I still can't believe what happened!," said a joyful Ana. "The crowd was amazing, they've been a great support. I've got no words to describe that. Last year's final was a great learning experience for me and I could make it this time (anaivanovic.com)". This quote is the epitome of what she offers both to fans as well as corporate sponsors. Thank you again for your very insightful post and I look forward to reading what you have to see in the future.
