Jelena Jankovic Reached the Quarter Final of French Open 2008

Serbian tennis star Jelena Jankovic is the current world no. 3 in women’s singles. She started participating in the grand slam tournaments since 2003, but she could not yet win any grand slam title. In fact, Jelena Jankovic never played any grand slam final yet in her career. However, the Serbian star has already set herself one of the toughest competitors in world tennis, given her mental strength and resilient physical fitness in evidence of her excellent ranking. She is often considered as injury-prone star because of her frequent injury problems. During Australian Open 2008, she had to play with various injury problems. The same thing continues in the ongoing French Open 2008 tournament too. Jankovic staved off the challenge of Polish rising star Agnieszka Radwanska in the fourth round winning in direct sets, despite facing some problems in her back.

Jelena Jankovic stalled 14th seed Agnieszka Radwanska 6-3, 7-6. However, Jankovic had to take one injury time out in order to take some treatment on her back and also needed to take a shoulder message at a changeover. So, you can see that winning over the Polish youngster was not that easy for Jankovic. However, her performance is so far in the tournament has been very impressive without dropping any set en route to quarter final in French Open 2008. Moreover, she came to play at Roland Garros with her Italian Open triumph fresh in mind. Actually, a heavier ball is being used in French Open 2008 and that is causing injury starting from her arm, extending to her shoulder and now on back. So, it is necessary to keep herself fit ahead of some of the big matches in the tournament. Jelena Jankovic is going to face Spanish qualifier Carla Suarez Navarro in the quarter final of French Open 2008. Now, let us see if Jelena Jankovic can win her first ever Grand Slam title in this tournament, despite the niggling injuries she is facing continuously.
