Dubai: Ana Ivanovic reveals that she has never really been comfortable with the extra baggage that comes with being an international sportsperson.
The former world No. 1 won her first grand slam at 21 in 2008, but is currently ranked at 18 by the WTA.
“I have never really found myself comfortable in that kind of limelight. I like to have my privacy. I don’t like people knowing what I do in my free time,” Gulf News quoted her as saying.
“I am also a very shy person, but I understand that people want to know more. It’s all about the fine balance and accepting things as they are, because if you don’t accept it and fight it then it gets you down,” she said.
