Serbia’s top female tennis star, Ana Ivanovic, heaped praise on 17-time Grand Slam champion, Roger Federer, touting the latter a ‘great champion’ both on and off the court.

Ivanovic, who featured in the recently-concluded International Premier Tennis League (IPTL) alongside Federer, said that the Swiss is an impressive figure and a beautiful person.

“Roger Federer is truly a great champion. He is an impressive figure on and off court,” Ivanovic was quoted as saying by The Asian Age. “I also have to say that he is a very beautiful person, a true gentleman. He is a great man, I have no doubts about it,” she continued.

Talking about her experience of playing along with Federer at the IPTL, the Serb stated: “We had a chance to talk quite a bit while playing for the IPTL. We talked about family and how to cope with competing while having one.

“When you hear advice coming from such a champion, it is easy for you to accept it.”
