Update on de Jenken
A couple of months ago, I reported on a rumor that umpire Sandra de Jenken had switched over the ATP. Apparently, that rumor has no basis: I saw her calling the Stuttgart semifinal match between Justine Henin and Jelena Jankovic. And she made an uncharacteristic bad call, too, after Henin challenged an out call on what she thought was a good first serve. Jankovic's racquet touched the ball, making it a let, but de Jenken called it as an ace.
