Jelena Jankovic is ranked 6th in the world as of Tuesday, September 14th.

Jelena came to the US Open as the 5th seeded player. After recovering from an ankle injury JJ came to New York with big hopes and a dream of winning a Grand Slam.

Jelena had to work hard in the early rounds, much harder than expected. She was very lucky and managed to advance to the 3rd round and encounter with Estonian Kaia Kanepi. Kanepi proved to be too strong for the former world number one. Jelena had to pack her bags, leave the town and face the facts about her poor game. Despite crashing out in the 3rd round, Jelena gained some points and went down only one place in the newest rankings. But what's more important, in the race for the year-end WTA Championships taking place in Doha, Jelena finished 8th! It means if JJ went down at least on place in the race, she would not qualify for the prestigious tournament consisting of 8 best players of the year.

Jelena will get another chance to improve with tournaments in Asia starting soon.
