Bastian Schweinsteiger is probably one of the most famous Bayern Munich players of all time. He served almost his entire career with the Reds until 2015 when he joined Manchester United for a two-year spell.
Bastian Schweinsteiger has won the Bundesliga eight times with Bayern, which is something fascinating and not many football players have achieved it. Schweinsteiger's professional career is something magnificent, but we decided to take a closer look into his wife's life as she is a sport legend as well.

Ana Ivanovic picked up a racket at a very young age, when she was 4-years-old to be exact. Ana was inspired by Monica Seles and she wanted to be like her, so she encouraged her parents to buy her a racket and send her to tennis school.
Ana started training in very dangerous times, during the NATO air strikes of the Kosovo War, but no matter the conditions Ivanovic loved what she was doing and she kept going.
The training facilities she used to train were very poor, so when she was 13-years-old Ana moved to Basel, Switzerland, as there the training facilities and coaching were better.
Dan Holzmann was her manager at the time, but he was on the verge of abandoning her, when he saw her crying after her first defeat, because he thought that she wasn't good enough. However, he decided to give her a second chance and that was the right decision as Ana became no. 1 in World.
Ana Ivanovic made her professional debut on August 17, 2003.
Ana reached the final of the Junior Wimbledon tournament, but she lost to Kateryna Bondarenko. But that did not stop her and only motivated her to be even better, so she went 26–0 on the ITF Women's Circuit, and managed to win all five events that she entered, two of them as a qualifier.

Ivanovic started the summer hard-court season in 2008 with a third-round loss at the Rogers Cup in Montreal to Tamira Paszek.
Ana withdrew from the East West Bank Classic in Los Angeles due to a sore thumb, which she sustained during her practice session two weeks before Montreal. That led to losing the world No. 1 ranking to Janković.
