Tennis star Ana Ivanovic visits Packard Children's


Ana Ivanovic, the feisty Serb who's fighting her way up the brackets at the Bank of the West Classic, paid a visit to patients at the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital yesterday. Ivanovic, the former world No. 1 in tennis, said of her outing:

It was really nice to go to the Children’s Hospital [at] Stanford. After that outing I [realized] some things about my life and I have started appreciating what I have achieved more. Wins come and go, but what is forever important is your health. I was glad to see the smiles on the little ones’ faces.
