Former World No 1 tennis ace says her busy schedule is no impediment in finding the right person to date

Tennis ace Ana Ivanovic may have disappointed her fans by withdrawing from the WTA Generali Ladies Linz tournament on Wednesday, but she has more than made up for it with a glamorous photoshoot that her legion of male followers will admire.

Hip injury
Ivanovic pulled out of the tournament in Austria due to a left hip injury a day after receiving medical treatment during her first-round win over Pauline Parmentier of France. Ivanovic beat Parmentier 6-3, 6-2 but asked for a medical timeout 1-2 down in the second set.

Having overcome that pain now, the Serbian beauty is all set to shine on the cover of American magazine Bella. The photoshoot showcases the tennis star’s fashion sense off the court.

The former World No 1 was reportedly in a relationship with Bayern Munich and Germany footballer Bastian Schweinsteiger recently, but it ended abruptly. The heartbreak notwithstanding, the pretty lady is not averse to love though. In an interview with the magazine, Ivanovic said that despite her busy schedule on the Tour, there is always time for love.

“I would say, yes there is always time (for love), if you meet the right person,” said Ivanovic, who rued the fact that she doesn’t find the time to meet too many guys.

Too much travelling
“One of the downsides of the job is that I am travelling so much, and I don’t have so much time to go out and socialise, as people, who have a more traditional job might do, so it’s hard. I don’t meet too many guys.”
