According to media reports, Serbian tennis player Ana Ivanovic has decided not to play for her national team.

Ivanovic informed the Tennis Federation of Serbia about her decision while the federation tried unsuccessfully to dissuade her.

Serbian team coach Tatjana Jecmenica expressed her regret about the decision, acknowledging that the national team “is much stronger” with Ivanovic’s presence. She, however, made it clear that she will respect the world No 19’s decision, without giving further details.

Ivanovic, who is one of the best current players in the Serbian national team, has played 29 games for Serbia with 20 victories. Her best result with the national team was in the Federation Cup in 2012, when Serbia lost the final against the Czech Republic.
