Jankovic overcomes Zheng, hair stays intact

Jelena JankovicSecond seed Jelena Jankovic advanced to the fourth round of the US Open with a hard-fought victory over Wimbledon semifinalist Jie Zheng of China, ranked 37th in the world. I’m joking about this "hair stays intact" part because of a recent funny statement of Jankovic (you can read it below).

As always, Jankovic had problems with holding her serve so being a break up wasn’t a big deal for the world No.2. You see, Jankovic converted eight break points, Zheng six. The Serb finished the match on her fifth match point with a final score 7-5 7-5. All those match points were in the final game of the second set which featured 11 deuces.

And here’s the part with Jankovic’s perfect hair. Haha, I read this quote yesterday. When asked what question she has never been asked but wants to answer Jankovic said: "They never ask me why my hair never moves. I use tons of hairspray because of my bangs. Even if I used 100 pins it would all fall out. So I wish they would ask me about my perfect hair!" Jelena, you’re a gem! :D

In the fourth round Jankovic will meet 14th seed Victoria Azarenka of Belarus or Caroline Wozniacki, the Danish 21st seed. (photo via AFP)

    Thanks, Diane.

    I feel the same as you. I sometimes think what I will do when Jankovic retires. Haha, I know she's still too young but whenever her retirement comes I'll miss her. She spices up the tennis world in a special way.
