Jankovic injured in Portoroz

Top seed Jelena Jankovic turned her ankle today at the Slovenia Open, during her second round match against Anastasiya Yakimova. Jankovic retired during the third set.

Ksenia Pervak defeated her friend, Alexandra Panova, and Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and Johanna Larsson also advanced.

Have you heard from anywhere since you posted, how bad the injury is? I would hate for her not to be able to even defend her title in Cincinnati. She is no 2 now and she needs to take advantage of that situation. I just like to see people start to be consistent when they get in the top 10 or 20. I hope the ankle doesn't turn into a Wozniacki problem.

I was out all evening. A quick check gives me nothing new. Needless to say, I'm not very happy about this development.

I only saw that she had retired and I just automatically assumed that it was her back again, I didn't actually hear anything. It's very unfortunate for her, just when she finally seemed to be back to her old self again. Let's hope that it's not serious and definitely not to the same extent to what Vera Zvonareva suffered.
