Only a few days ago Aussie Scott was courtside at Wimbledon to see his stunning Serbian girlfriend takes on brave Aussie hopeful and fellow Queenslander Sam Stosur in the third round.

But today the sports shoe was on the other foot as Ivanovic watched Scott at work during the First Round of The Barclays Scottish Open at Loch Lomond Golf Club.

Accompanied by friends Ivanovic - an Australian crowd favourite - chatted with Ernie Els wife, Liezl as boyfriend Scott shot a bogey-free round of 66 - putting him two shots off the lead and firmly in contention after the opening day's play.

But Ivanovic, 22, said Australian Scott, 30, had encouraged her to persevere in the face of adversity.

"The biggest thing, professionally, he has taught me is patience," the Serbian tennis star said.

Patience is exactly what she needed during the most trying year of her career.

Ivanovic struggled with her form to the point of breaking down in tears, and has fallen from No.1 in June 2008 to No.21.

Yesterday, Scott was courtside as she practised ahead of this week's Brisbane International.

The Australian Open champion sat beside Ivanovic's parents, Miroslav and Dragana, and her brother, Milos, during the 60-minute workout.

"I'm just here for the tennis," he said, signing autographs.

Ivanovic battled injuries that kept her off the tour in April and July, and then prematurely ended her year in October.

Ivanovic will officially kick-start her campaign Down Under on Monday night when she plays her first-round match at the inaugural Brisbane International.

The tournament drawcard will face Czech teenager Petra Kvitova, the world No.50, at Pat Rafter Arena after the centre court was set aside for her in the opening night session almost a week ago.

Ivanovic has been training on the Sunshine Coast for the past fortnight to prepare herself for an assault on the Australian Open.

The statuesque 21 year old, currently world ranked No.5 after an injury-hit end to last year, is motivated by her 2008 final loss to Maria Sharapova at Melbourne Park.

“I really want to take it one step further this time and hopefully win it,” she said at the Queensland Tennis Centre on Saturday.

“But I think it’s important not to think too much about the final and take it step by step and enjoy every match.”

The No.1 ranking in the game, held by compatriot Jelena Jankovic, who is yet to win a Grand Slam event, is also at the top of her to-do list, and she is treating the Brisbane event as a key springboard.

“It’s very important to start well and get your confidence and I set some goals for myself this season but my main goal is to try to be very consistent and to perform well at the biggest tournaments and then rankings take care of themselves,” Ivanovic said.

“I’ve worked very hard and I believe I have the qualities to get back to No.1 position. It’s going to be tough for sure but I can do it.

“I think it’s very open. Especially in the last couple of months, women’s tennis has been so close with the race for No.1 position and I think it’s still in play.”
