Ana Ivanovic took time out to relax in the spectacular Miracle Gardens in Dubai this week, ahead of the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships.

The 27-year-old admitted that she was amazed by the world’s biggest flower garden, which is home to 45 million blooms.

“It’s a very peaceful and beautiful location, with so many flowers. It’s a great way to relax,” said Ivanovic.

“I’ve seen the city grow so much since my first visit in 2006 and it always offers so much, there’s always things to do and this brings a lot of excitement to this event.
