Here's a first look at top lady baller Jelena Jankovic and the new on-court fashion she's working at the JB Group Classic in Hong Kong. She paired up with Portuguese shrieker Michelle Larcher de Brito for some doubles action at the tourney today.
The rumor mill was buzzing after the slidin' Serb left Reebok recently and no announcement was made about her new sponsor.
Does anyone have an idea what brand JJ's wearing here?
UPDATE: Thanks to an anonymous commenter who wrote, "There are people saying it's LiNing..". So being the dutiful blogger I am, I did some research and, voila! It IS a Chinese brand called Li Ning and they have a pretty cool looking website though I can't read a lick of it (watch it.)
Here's more from another anonymous reader on the brand:
Li Ning is a Chinese brand, owned by a former Chinese world-record 400m runner of the same name. That's the guy who lit up the Olympic torch in Beijing while suspended high up above the stadium.
The brand is becoming huge, they've dressed several complete national teams during the Olympics (Spain comes to mind: red official suits for the opening ceremony and white track suits, plus various gears for all sports).
Remember when Rafa's bags got lost in flight at the beginning of the Olympics, so for the first couple of days he practiced in those yummy low-slung rainbow bermudas and white tee with tacky gold lettering? That was Li Ning (he borrowed those). Also, he wore their white track suit on the podium for his gold medal award.
JJ's outfit is not a dress, but very short shorts and baby-dollish top with criss-crossed back straps.
I wonder if this move to Li Ning is temporary and just for the JB Group Classic or it's a true sponsorship?
