Jankovic was treated by the physio, but the pain and swelling persisted. The problem, which is located in the ball of her foot, will be diagnosed tomorrow when she gets an MRI. She has never before experienced any pain in the ball of either foot.
Obviously disappointed, Jankovic, a crowd favorite in Charleston, said that she had been looking forward to playing her young protege, Danka Kovinic, on Billie Jean King Stadium Court tonight.
Jankovic won the Family Circle Cup in 2007 (in post-tornado winds, naturally) and was the runner-up in 2012. This year, she was on course to meet friend and defending champion Andrea Petkovic in the quarterfinals.
