Ana Ivanovic showers praise on Serena Williams
Former French Open Winner Ana Ivanovic, who suffered a shock defeat in her second round match at the US Open came out in the press conference with words of praise for the World No. 1 and defending US Open Champion Serena Williams in New York on Thursday.

Eighth seed Ana Ivanovic was knocked out in the second round of the United States Open by Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic. The 22-year old made the most of the windy conditions as the Serbian committed a high number of unforced errors in the match, which helped Pliskova in registering a straight sets win over her with a 7-5, 6-4 scorecard. The 26-year-old Ivanovic served 7 double-faults and made 29 unforced errors in the 80-minutes long match.

"I am very disappointed obviously, especially losing this early. I was really hoping to make a good run this year at the US Open, I was hoping I could keep pushing. Still, I feel like I have had a good summer" Said Ivanovic. "I have to understand why it happens that I play great matches ahead of the Slams, but then fail to perform well in the major events. I don't know why, I really need to work on that."

When one of the American journalists questioned the Serbian about Serena Williams, the former World No. 1 lauded the American with words of respect."Serena trying to win her 18th Grand Slam here is a great achievement. To be honest, I believe she could even go on and break the record for more Slam wins in history. She has a big game. Her results just show how consistent she is, just simply how good she is,” says the Serbian.

"I think in women's tennis we are lucky to have someone like Serena, someone people can look up to and to be inspired by".
