Jelena Jankovic can console herself with Wimbledon mixed doubles crown

Jelena Jankovic and Jamie Murray with Wimbledon trophiesJelena Jankovic was stunned by Marion Bartoli’s fantastic performance at Wimbledon; the Serb was helpless in the fourth round match against the determined Frenchwoman (the eventual surprising finalist), and lost in singles earlier than planned.

However, by coincidence, Jankovic made best of bad situation — she paired with Jamie Murray, and I think completely unexpectedly for her, won mixed doubles on Sunday! They beat fifth seeds Jonas Bjorkman of Sweden and Australia's Alicia Molik 6-4 3-6 6-1.

Jelena Jankovic admitted that a first Grand Slam win was especially sweet.

"It's really an incredible feeling for me to be there and to hold the trophy," she said.

"It's something that I always dreamed of, and I would love one day to have that feeling with the singles trophy." (via BBC)
