Second seed Jelena Jankovic didn’t resist the curse of favorites for long as she was beaten at Wimbledon, just like top and third seed Ana Ivanovic and Maria Sharapova. World No.3 Jankovic lost to Thailand’s Tamarine Tanasugarn 6-3 6-2 it the fourth round.
Jankovic’s previous match was also a close affair, but today she couldn’t come back after losing the first set. Jankovic was invariably troubled by a knee injury she sustained in the match against Caroline Wozniacki.
Jankovic has never surpassed the fourth round at Wimbledon. With the victory over the Serb, world No.60 Tanasugarn made her best result at a Grand Slam, reaching the quarterfinals for the first time. At Wimbledon, after six exits in the fourth round, the Thai veteran finally went further.
