Jelena Jankovic hasn’t played a tennis match in almost two years, since losing to Petra Kvitova in the first round of the 2017 US Open, and we don’t know what the former world No.1 is up to, but the still-not-officially-retired WTA star is keeping her body in shape and making sure it receives enough vitamin D by sunbathing in exotic locations.
Four days ago, JJ shared the above photo on Instagram, “complaining” about her “hard life”. Yes, we know, yacht rides can be stressful! 🙂 The Serb seems to be self-conscious about gaining some belly weight, as she used hashtag “please don’t mind my chubby belly”, but I’d say that she still has the best body of all top WTA players.
Yesterday, Jankovic got “lost on an island”, as her Instagram caption reads, and decided to use her time to the fullest by sunbathing her toned legs on seaside rocks.
About a week ago, Jankovic posted a beach photo from Forte dei Marmi, Tuscany, Italy, so we can speculate that these photos were also taken in the Mediterranean.
Travels, especially those in coastal regions, nurture our body and soul and it’s good to see Jankovic fulfilled and relaxed. She doesn’t seem to be missing the life on the WTA tour, so even though I’d love to see her on the tennis court at least a few more times, I guess she feels happier and healthier away from all the struggles of being a tennis pro. However, should she wish to come back, nothing is lost yet. The age of 34 is now a common sight on the WTA circuit. Not to mention that a lot of players reach their best results later in their careers, after the age of 30, although it would be unrealistic for Jankovic to be that case, as she’s already been at the very top.
