Jelena Jankovic has made her way to Tokyo for the Toray Pan Pacific as the tourney's top seed. But the Serb is still reminiscing about her time at the US Open where she made her first Grand Slam final:
I think once the disappointment from the defeat sets in, I will look back with happy memories for how the last two weeks went. To reach my first Grand Slam final after 5 semi finals is another step in the right direction for me.JJ was also very busy with her sponsors during the fortnight including Reebok who made her custom dress with the help of a surprise designer:
Before the tournament started I was busy doing sponsor appearances and media. One of the highlights was a Reebok photo shoot at the top of the Empire Hotel. I was shot in my new Reebok dress and I got many compliments about it so I am happy for that! With my Mom I helped to design it so even if I didn't win the tournament people told me I was the best dressed player ;-)Wait - who are these freaks that keep telling JJ she's the best dressed lady baller? They're making her think she's going in the right direction with these style experiments.
I have one word for them: glitter.
