Ana Ivanovic says Olympics has been a life long dream

Ana Ivanovic says representing Serbia at the Olympics has been a long-term dream of hers.

“I grew up watching our athletes at various Olympic Games and I was especially excited when the men’s basketball team won the silver medal at the 1996 Games in Atlanta,” she was quoted as saying by the Belgrade-based Beta news agency on Saturday.

Some tennis stars have previously stayed in hotels rather than at the Olympic village. Ivanovic says she will be staying in the village with other athletes.

“I am also looking forward to meeting other athletes in the Olympic village and watching different events such as volleyball and water polo.”

World number three Novak Djokovic is another favorite to win a medal for Serbia at the Olympics.
