Ana Ivanovic is one of the most popular female athletes in the world. The 21 year-old from Serbia has millions of fans thanks to her charming, gracious and fun-loving personality.

But when she’s not playing tennis, what interests Ana? I caught up with her earlier this summer to talk about her cooking, her hobbies, and what three items she would want if trapped on a deserted island.

Ana IvanovicIf you had the opportunity to cook the President of Serbia a meal of your preparing, what would you serve?
I’m not a very good cook, unfortunately. Or at least I don’t know many recipes. So I wouldn’t be very impressive! I would probably have to cook fajitas – they’re my specialty.

What three things would you bring along if you were stuck for a week on a deserted island?
My iPod, mobile phone (you never know: there could be reception!) and a fiction book.

What keeps you energized, on your toes, and motivated to play tennis?
I simply love to play tennis. I enjoy it the same way now as I did when I was a kid. I am very competitive, so I love the competition. My biggest motivation is to win Grand Slams.

What is an everyday item that you would not mind spending a lot of money on to purchase?
I listen to music a lot, so I like to have a reliable MP3 player. At the moment I use an iPod. Considering how much I use it, I would say it’s good value.
