I believe this threat was posted before, but I recently had opportunities to watch many matches Ana played. I've been her fan for a while and still am but for some reasons, her fist pump on each point she won really annoying. Is is just me or someone else would agree with me also? Thanks.

It's annoying for the sheer amount of time she keeps it up...

I find it most annoying when she does nothing to win the point. I can understand a fist pump when yo smash a winner but when you just push it back over and over and your opponent makes an unforced error then the fist pump is very uncalled for. I feel the same about Maria's fist pump.

well, different players have different ways of keeping themselves positive and pumped up...so I duno. I find it a lot less annoying than sharapova's screams though.

NOt to sound sexist, but she needed something to distract her a bit from the pressures of tennis pro life and there goes Verdasco. now Lets see if he's going to pull stepanek on her or Berdych on her ( remember all the girls dating those two, safarova, vaidisova, just dissapeared ) or wil we have an alltogether different outcome ? ;)

Well seems like it, but having in mind I live in Serbia, you can achieve all these things if you aproach them positivly and have enough energy to pull it off, and there's always going to be a question of priorities. Sometimes you just put some things aside in order to finish others which are more urgent at that moment, and then come back and pick up the pieces and make the most of it with the other thing ..

I am sure there are lots of guys doing a steady job and spending more time and effort than me. Two reasons, I like what I do, international trade as a steady and domestic marketing as a part time job ( just sign a contract and let your people control if it is being properly respected by our partners ), people at the army are very understanding about all of what I do ( I am a civil servant at the army - meaning I got a job from them since I am a pacifist and wanted to have nothing with weapons ) and so are the guys at my faculty, I get extra time if I need it, they reschedule my exams and so on. Girlfriend is only a backup and a help when needed so there you go. I doubt though Id manage to pull this off if I was 40.

fist pumps are always good to see and ANa's is no exception. i'd rather see fistpumps from an intense player than a zombie walking around.

even Ana's squeeky feet trick to distract the opponent's serve last year was entertaining :)

gully
01-19-2009, 05:09 AM
Poor technique: elbow too close to body, fist not properly clenched, upward thrust at uncomfortable oblique angle, no bicep definition, employed too frequently and predictably. Ivanovic's pump is the weakest part of her arsenal and the poorest on tour.

Suggestions: use closed stance/lunge, boxer-style fist, stronger bicep curl, forearm more horizontal, use only at critical junctures, with repetition or exclamation for emphasis.

Her tennis however didn't look that good!

janipyt05
01-19-2009, 08:00 AM
to me its a waste of energy, its more of a show for her opponent to show she is still fighting i guess it helps her but if she would put that fist pump into her game , she would be better off. Did you check that toss of the ball moving way to its right and had enless doubles. It was either behind her or way to the right that needs some looking at, it also seems she is to a step slow. TO be given such a hard time by her opponent just proves that she won't get far if she does i will be surprised. Some of her shots she didn't move onto the ball or get her feet going just swinging, but i have to give it too her when she gets her feet right, and her body right her shots are devastating, i hope she an get back to the play of 07/08

And that's why males will forgive her everything and anything... ;).
By the way, I do think she's hot, but she's also a bit overrated in the looks department (people saying she's the hottest on tour...she's NOT !).
She has a pretty face, but there are MANY better bodies on tour.

Exactly,I don't mind anything Ana does on court,all is forgiven in advance as far as I'm concerned.Heck I wouldn't mind even if she played naked(I actually wouldn't mind that at all :)).

Maybe,plenty of hot girls on tour,competition's tough.Kirilenko,Wozniacki,Dementieva,Vaidisova,Cib ulkova,Penneta etc. are all very good looking,tough to choose the hottest one.

Why,thank you :).

I've always found it to be affectation rather than spontaneous emotion, and that stuff has always made me cringe or look away.

But there's been so much of it.

Agassi's running to the chair on a changeover.

Hewitt's "c'mons" from the second point of the match.

Serena's act in general.

Sharapova's rituals.

A ton of Rafa's mannerisms, though to his credit he has toned it down.

What irks me more are the commentators who call attention to it with quotes like:
"What a fighter."

Which makes me think: what, the guy not emoting isn't fighting?

I love honest emotion expressed after an enormous point and that those are easy to identify, but this chronic nonsense is IMO disrespectful to the game and, more importantly the opponent on the other side of the net. Admittedly I'm old school in my beliefs, I just think that as professionals these guys/girls should act like they've won a point or two before the last one they just played.

The squeaky shoes really bugged me, too, but after the AO match against Dementieva, she apparently stopped that practice after some complaints were registered.

She needs to pump up every point? Even on her opponent's UE's? Does she have narcolepsy? I actually want to root for her, she seems like she is a nice kid in her interviews, but she needs to respect the game and her opponents a whole lot more than she does right now.

Unfortunately, that belief has resulted from few fans and many juniors, particularly a handful of those who went on to the upper echelon of the sport being unfamiliar with or so self absorbed that they have made a conscious choice to ignore The Code and have set a poor example for the former.
