Ivanovic Leaves Verdasco Behind in Brisbane

Tomorrow, Spaniard Fernando Verdasco will be facing Radek Stepanek in the finals of the Brisbane International; but, his biggest fan won’t be there to cheer him on. The final tomorrow will be his first ATP final on a hard court and only the seventh of his career, as he tries to perfectly cap off what has been an impressive week for the 15th ranked player in the world.

His girlfriend Ana Ivanovic also played in the Brisbane International; but, she lost to Amelie Mauresmo on Thursday. Instead of sticking around Brisbane to watch Verdasco play, however, Ivanovic has been spotted arriving in Melbourne, which is the location of the first major tournament of the season, the Australian Open. With only a little over a week before the Aussie begins, Ivanovic has arrived so that she can train and prepare herself for the tournament.

    Makes sense, I guess at this level the only way two players could maintain a relationship would be to understand the others drive to be the best and stick to their individual preparation plans, even if it does mean missing a big occassional of their partner.
