Ana Ivanovic took to social media on Tuesday afternoon to post a pre-practice photo of herself as she begins her preparations for next week’s French Open.

The 27-year-old is aiming to improve her form on clay after she slumped to a three-set defeat by Daria Gavrilova in the second round of the Italian Open last week.

Ivanovic, who won her only Grand Slam title at Roland Garros in 2008, is in practice action in Mallorca this week as she works on her fitness ahead of next week’s tournament in Paris.

The Serb posted the picture above on her Instagram account and wrote: “Calm before the storm. #OnCourt #Training #Tennis #Fitness #AllAna #Palma #Mallorca #Spain.”

Ivanovic was the fifth seed at the Australian Open in January but was knocked out in the first round by qualifier Lucie Hradecka.
