Ivanovic began her season at the 2012 Brisbane International where she was defeated in the second round by fifth seed Kim Clijsters in three sets, 1–6, 6–1, 3–6 despite leading 3–0 in the final set. Ivanovic's next event was the Apia International Sydney but she lost in the first round to Lucie Šafářová in straight sets, 6–7(5) 2–6.

Ana then headed over to the 2012 Australian Open where she was seeded 21st.

Ana lost in straight sets to World No. 2 Petra Kvitová, 6–2, 7–6(2) in the fourth round. She cracked the Top 20 after her Round of 16 run.

Ivanovic's next tournament was the 2012 Qatar Total Open. Ana then went on unseeded in Dubai, where she upset Francesca Schiavone, and beat Maria Kirilenko.

 

Endorsements

 

Ivanovic then signed a lifetime contract with the Adidas. Ivanovic will become an Ambassador for the company once she retires from competitive tennis.

Since the beginning of 2008, Ivanovic has used Yonex racquets. She previously used the RQiS 1 Tour XL 95, but at the beginning of the Western and Southern Financial Group Women's Open 2010 in Cincinnati switched to a prototype version of a new Yonex racket. Ivanovic plays with the Yonex EZONE 100 model.
