JELENA JANKOVIC TAKES INDIAN WELLS

It’s been a good two weeks of tennis at one my favorite tournaments of the year. It had many upsets in the women’s draw. The early exit of Justine Henin for example.  Tournament favorites were ousted in earlier rounds. Outsiders and underdogs surprisingly made it to the finals.  Ofcourse we are talking Jelena Jankovic and Caroline Wozniacki here.

Jelena Jankovic and Caroline Wozniacki both made it to the finals of the prestigious Indian Wells tournament. And Jelena Jankovic won the finals in only two sets 6-2, 6-4 and took home her first title since Cincinnati last August.

Jankovic is now expected to rise to the 8th place on the WTA Tour while the diligent Dane will reach a career high of No. 2.

Wozniacki has yet to beat Jelena Jankovic. She failed to do so in the past 3 meetings between the two.
