Jelena Jankovic is the New Number 1

Stuttgart. Jelena Jankovic is again the No 1 in women’s tennis. Though she will only start her Porsche Tennis Grand Prix campaign on Thursday she will head coming Monday’s rankings. The 23-year-old Serbian will replace Serena Williams (USA) at the top after the US Open winner surprisingly lost her opening match in the Porsche Arena against Na Li from China.

Jelena Jankovic has won more matches this year than any other player on the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour – and two tournaments: the Internazionali BNL d´Italia in Rom and last week’s China Open in Beijing. A finalist in Miami, she reached her first Grand Slam final of her career at the US open but was then defeated by Serena Williams. She reached the semifinals at two other Grand Slams and lost to the eventual winner on both occasions: in Melbourne to Maria Sharapova and in Paris to Ana Ivanovic.

The Serb was No. 1 for the first time on 11 August 2008 but relinquished the position one week later.
