In 2008, after winning her first and so far only major at Roland Garros, Ana Ivanovic became the first Serbian player to be ranked No. 1. But over the next year her confidence nosedived, as did her ranking, all the way out of the Top 20 by the end of 2009. A runner-up at the 2007 Roland Garros and 2008 Australian Open, Ivanovic has captured 11 career titles. She closed 2010 with titles in Linz and Bali and successfully defended her Bali title in 2011. Ivanovic reached the 2012 U.S. Open quarterfinal—her first Grand Slam quarterfinal since she won the 2008 Roland Garros—and finished 2012 ranked No. 13. Top-seeded Angelique Kerber beat Ivanovic, 6-4, 7-6 (6), in the Linz final in October, 2013. Ivanovic defeated Venus Williams to claim her 12th career title in Auckland in January, 2014. She upset world No. 1 Serena Williams at the Australian Open to reach the quarterfinals. In April, 2014, Ivanovic beat Jovana Jaksic in the all-Serbian Monterrey final for her second title of the year. On June 15, 2014, Ivanovic defeated Barbora Zahlavova Strycova to win her 14th career title and first career grass-court crown at Birmingham. The Premier-level title was her biggest since winning the 2008 French Open. On September 21, 2014, she beat Caroline Wozniacki, 6-2, 7-6 (2), to collect her fourth title of the season in Tokyo. It was Ivanovic's 52nd win of the season—the most wins she's ever posted in a single season. One of the most photographed female players in the world, Ivanovic has appeared in several fashion magazines. She has dated fellow player Fernando Verdasco and professional golfer Adam Scott. Ivanovic began playing tennis at age 5 after seeing Monica Seles play on TV.
