CINCINNATI – Jelena Janković is doubling her pleasure and doubling her fun.
The former World No. 1 in singles has recently been competing in doubles as a way to improve her tennis skills.
She and Mirjana Lučić-Baroni reached the quarterfinals at Wimbledon this summer, after making it to the third round at the Australian Open and the French Open.
And last week at the Rogers Cup in Toronto, she and Katarina Srebotnik earned the championship trophy.
“I started playing doubles this year, and I reached my career high of 25 in the doubles, won the tournament last week in Toronto, which was amazing,” she said. “The reason I started playing doubles is because I want to improve my singles game and I really want to come in a lot.”
