Ana nominated for U.S. State Department award


April 20, 2008 /

The U.S. State Department has nominated Ana for its 2008 International Women of Courage Award. The accolade was created by U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice in order to recognise exceptional women around the globe.

"This is a big surprise," said Ana. "It's a great honour and I'd like to thank them for paying me such a great compliment like this."

In addition to reaching No.2 in the world rankings and finishing runner-up at two Grand Slams, in the past year Ana became a UNICEF ambassador for Serbia. Since her inauguration in September 2007 she has not only donated a considerable sum that has enabled 15 schools to join the "Schools Without Violence" programme, she has raised awareness about child safety through her off-court activities, which included writing a newspaper column that benefited UNICEF during the Australian Open.

The nomination is the latest in a long line of honours bestowed upon the 20-year-old in recent weeks. Last month she scooped the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour's 2007 Karen Krantzcke Sponsmanship award and was simultaneously named the 2007 Most Improved Player.

Last week a postage stamp bearing her image was released in Serbia, while 2008 began with Ana being named the best-looking player in the history of tennis by The Age newspaper in Australia.

An ambition fulfilled
And is the sawdust jealous?
I worry about these things .

First Grand Slam title for him as well- surprising considering how good a player he is. Yeah he's number in the race now with Nestor and number 4 in the rankings, with Nestor now holding the top spot!

He hit an equivalent of the Federer against Roddick Basel shot in the last game, and also hit an amazing backhand on match point!

When I was watching that match and saw Zimonjic hit this shot I just sat there in amazement and couldn't stop smiling and marvelling at what an incredible shot and winner this was. I could watch this one 100 times over its that good  :king:

Illinois Governor Blagojevich isn't a really bad Serbian tennis player but an even worse governor.
