PHOTO OP: JJ beaten by The Shvedor - is a hairy situation to blame?

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.

  1. hey rich i read on forty deuce that jj's grandma died yesterday so that could have been why, bless her

  2. They annouced that on tv so I guess her heart was not in it.

  3. Also her mom had to leave the day before so she could have been a little distracted, she had her chances, BUT her friggin dress was a MESS, too much going on, nice color but to me the fabric looks a little "cheap" and frills here and there, it just wasn't a good choice. I think she looks better in straight sillouetes like she did w/ rebok...too bad for her....
