Jelena Jankovic became the second consecutive top seed casualty on Arthur Ashe during second round play at the US Open today.
The Serb was all out of sorts getting out hit and out run by Yaroslava Shvedova during her 3-6, 7-6 (4), 6-7 (8) defeat. Unfortunately she'll be taking a big hit in the rankings since she made the final last year. Her match followed Elena Dementieva's shock loss to Melanie Oudin earlier this afternoon.
According to tennis scribe Doug Robson's tweet after the loss, the WTA mentioned JJ's maternal grandmother passed away last night which could explain some of her play today. So sad and thoughts go out to her.
But I wonder if another reason is the hairy situation she wore? Please see Exhibits A-D and you decide.
