Jelena Jankovic has started mentoring Aleksandra Krunic, one of the biggest Serbian women’s tennis hopes.
“It is a great pleasure that Aleksandra chose me for her mentor. Even though I am still actively playing tennis, and I am planning to continue doing that in the next few years, I am glad to be having an opportunity to help a young woman with my experience,” said world No.8 Jankovic.
The 16-year-old Krunic started playing professionally in 2008 and is currently ranked 631st. So far, the 16-year-old has won one ITF singles and one ITF doubles title. (source in Serbian: vesti-online, photo: chascow)
interesting. i think serbia need some new blood. they are all amazing players, im jealous of the lack of australians 😀
ps; marija, is it to late to change my name for this blog? im tempted to change it to my middle name. does this work for you?
Jacob, of course you can change it. Just let us know it’s you. 🙂
Honestly I would have though JJ needs her own mentor – especially at the grand slams.
JJ as a mentor? Hmm,I wonder if she’ll have enough time for her mentee. Ah well, if she throws a few matches here and there… :0)
Wait a minute, since when did JJ become a Kung Fu Tennis master? I missed the graduation. Ms. Marija you wouldn’t happen to have any JJ’s graduation photos from grasshopper to master? Does this mean that Ms. Krunic is JJ’s grasshopper? I guess that the Kung Fu Tennis line is being pass down through the Serbs. 😛
I don’t have the photos, it was a private party. 😉
