Ana has arrived in Moscow ahead of the Russia versus Serbia Fed Cup semi-final, which begins on Saturday. The draw for the two-day event takes place on Friday afternoon, although it is known that, if selected, Ana will be the No.1 seed for the visitors. World No.18 Jelena Jankovic is expected to be named as the No.2 seed, while Serbian No.3 Bojana Jovanovski, ranked 96th, and 19-year-old Alexandra Krunic complete the line-up. The Russian team comprises of world No.21 Maria Kirilenko, No.22 Anastasia Pavluychenkova, No.27 Svetlana Kuznetsova and No.78 Elena Vesnina.

“Being in Belgrade this week, I really felt the excitement before this Fed Cup tie. It’s an honour to be part of this historic moment for our country,” said Ana, referencing the fact that Serbia has never before competed in a Fed Cup semi-final. I think that the two teams are quite evenly matched, but of course Russia have a lot more experience than us. It’s our job to ensure that they can’t use that advantage.”

Russia has won the Fed Cup four times in the last eight years, virtually dominating the team event, and they also boast a 3-0 head-to-head record against Serbia. “We’re looking for some revenge after the last time we played Russia,” said Ana, referencing the 3-2 defeat in Belgrade two years ago. Defending champions the Czech Republic take on Italy in the other semi-final. The final takes place during 3-4 November.
