Serbian tennis player Ana Ivanovic has decided not to play for her national team, Serbian media reported on Tuesday. Ivanovic informed the Tennis Federation of Serbia about her decision, while the federation tried unsuccessfully to dissuade her, according to TV channel B92, reports Efe.

Serbian team coach Tatjana Jecmenica expressed regret about the decision, acknowledging that the national team "is much stronger" with Ivanovic's presence. The coach noted that she will respect the world No.19's decision, without giving further details.

Ivanovic, who is one of the best current players in the Serbian national team, has played 29 games for Serbia with 20 victories.

The Serbian's best result with her national team was in the Federation Cup in 2012, when Serbia lost the final against the Czech Republic.
