The guys form Tennis Warehouse Europe had the chance to catch up with former world No. 1 and 2008 French Open champion Ana Ivanovic. She retired from tennis at the end of 2016, and she filled us in on how she has kept busy post-tennis as an adidas brand ambassador and parent. She is living in Chicago right now with her husband Bastian Schweinsteiger and is a mother of tow kids.
Now that you aren’t competing, what are your favorite ways to stay in shape?
“As an athlete, staying fit will always be an important part of my life, with or without active competition. I love doing yoga, as it keeps me centered and balanced. I also enjoy running outside along the water at home in Chicago.”
How do you present a healthy body image, especially now that you are a parent?
“There is more to a healthy body image than just being in shape. It is important to live an active and balanced lifestyle. As parents, we try to set an example for our children by walking often, eating greens and proteins, and balancing it with some fries and ice cream too!”
