Thanks to our reader, Zex, I am learning about this hilarious story involving who else than Jelena Jankovic. Hahaha this is the funniest tennis scandal!
Because of the funny faces JJ makes when playing tennis, the WTA star ended up in an advertisement for a sperm bank in Switzerland. Postcards with Jankovic and her full mouth were being sold in many Swiss cities for two francs. The text on the postcard translates as (according to Google): “Make a donation here”.
Jankovic ended up on these postcards without her knowledge and approval, and when it became a scandal, “Modern Times” from Germany, the company that made the postcard, said they did not know it was Jankovic in the picture and were sorry for the inconvenience.
The postcards have been withdrawn both from Swiss shops and from online stores. (source: Novosti)
