The 20-year-old Serb and new world No 1 had played in three of the previous five Grand Slam finals and was being talked about as the next great superstar of women’s tennis.
Larry Scott, the then chief executive of the Women’s Tennis Association, pointedly referred to Ivanovic as a “very glamorous, stylish and personable figure”.
Indeed, between the Wimbledons of 20 Ivanovic never even reached another Grand Slam quarter-final.
There was to be only one more Grand Slam semi-final appearance in her career, at Roland Garros last year, when a glorious opportunity passed her by when she was beaten by Lucie Safarova.
In late December 2016, a few days out from the beginning of the 2017 tour, she announced her retirement, citing being no longer able to perform to a high standard as a major factor. Ivanovic's mother Dragana, a lawyer, has been court-side during most of her matches.
Her father Miroslav, a self-employed businessman, attended as many events as he possibly could.
I like open communication and a bit of spontaneity.
I prefer to meet face to face instead of chatting on here for an extended period of time.
In the circumstances, 29-year-old Ivanovic’s decision to quit is no great surprise.
In her retirement statement she said she had been “hampered by injury” and felt she could no longer “perform up to my own high standards”.
There was speculation that she might even supplant Maria Sharapova as the most marketable player on the women’s tour. Although Ivanovic has remained one of the WTA’s greatest attractions, her popular appeal has not been reflected in her results.
Following that French Open victory in 2008, Ivanovic played in the next 34 Grand Slam tournaments in succession but never reached another final.
A recurring wrist problem had already forced her to cut her 2016 season short, but even before the run of five successive defeats at the end of her year there were signs that Ivanovic was a fading force.
