Jelena Jankovic Can’t Catch a Break

In her first tournament since Wimbledon, where she retired with a back injury in the fourth round, Jelena Jankovic took another tumble at the Slovenia Open – literally.

Jankovic injured her ankle after winning the first set 6-1 and was leading 2-1 in the second set against Anastasiya Yakimova of Belarus. Jankovic received medical attention but eventually retired 0-1 in the third set (after losing the second set 6-3).

Jankovic had written on her Facebook page prior to her match: “I am just relaxing a little bit before tonight’s match. Just uploaded some new pictures, and also the new profile picture with my new dress :)! Thank you for all your support here in Portoroz!”

We are excited to see her new dress and wish we could have seen more! Hopefully Jankovic can recover quickly for the US Open Series and, more importantly, the US Open.
