Andy Murray’s brother Jamie, the British doubles specialist, asked Jelena Jankovic to be his mixed doubles partner, and she agreed. However, the world No. 3 in singles believes that Jamie could have chosen someone else, since she’s not a good doubles player.
“I don’t think I’m going to be useful for him. He made a bad choice,” said Jankovic.
Of course, there were rumors that JJ was hoping for a love-match out of the association.
“It was the funniest thing that I’ve heard lately that I have a sweet spot for Jamie Murray. Where did that (come) from?,” she said.
“If I don’t really know the guy, how can I like him. I just want to confirm that it’s not true. His agent said I was first on his list to play so maybe he has a soft spot for me!”
