Ana Ivanovic: Character

​”Fame and success and titles stay with you, but they wear out eventually. In the end, all that you are left with is your character.”

—Ana Ivanovic. 

Janko Tipsarevic: What he said, really meant and definitely did not

Janko Tipsarevic Is Gluten Tolerant

What he said:

I am not.  I did my food intolerance test, which I advise everyone on the tour should do, and I took out some, how you say, substances or, you know, some kind of ingredients that I thought were good for me but they’re actually not.  But I did the test, and, you know, I am gluten tolerant.  (Laughter.)  I can eat bread.

Janko Tipsarevic is not gluten intolerant unlike his compatriots, Novak Djokovic and Ana Ivanovic.

What he really meant:

“Gluten is not bad—for me or my glutes.”

What he definitely didn’t:

“I can eat cake.”

Ana Ivanovic Combusts

What she said:

“Well, I think Serbians actually have quite a combustible character.”

Ana Ivanovic feels that Serbians, as a whole, are quite passionate.

She added:

Maybe that’s good for tennis.  Maybe that’s something that drives us.  But sometimes we can have fired up emotions out there.

What she really meant:

“Serbians are like tinder. They just need a tiny spark to light up.”

What she definitely didn’t:

“Burn, Baby, Burn.”

What she said:

“I walk out there, do the Crip walk and try to intimidate them.”

Serena Williams jokes that she tries to be as formidable with her on-court behaviour as with her tennis. Williams was responding to Ana Ivanovic’s claim that she is intimidating to her opponents.

What she really meant:

“If Petkovic can dance, I can do the Crip walk. Which, do you think, is more scary?”

What she definitely didn’t:

“I’m cutting a rap album soon. It’s called ‘Gal Wars At Flushing Meadows’

“Yeah, I mean, they say that very quickly, so…

Let’s talk in six months again.”

What he really meant:

Don’t write off Rafa or me as yet.

What he definitely didn’t:

Yeah, Rafa and I are going to quit the sport in six months.
