those JJ bags: for now, only in serbia



(Off to enjoy my middle Sunday by taking in the Buena Vista Social Club and Goldfrapp at the Hollywood Bowl. Get some rest for that action-packed Monday!)

Jelena Jankovic is quietly through to the fourth round of this year’s Wimbledon. She had to face Robson, Wozniak, and only gave up three games against Alona Bondarenko. Jelena’s next opponent is Zvonareva and potentially a Belgian (it’s Henin vs. Clijsters) in the quarters. Draw: Women’s singles [pdf]

ANTA‘s been doing a good job outfitting their ladies (Janks and Zheng Jie) with some cute warm-ups, include this one with the cropped sleeve and oversized collar (it’s been done, but we’ll never tire of it). And like the rest of the top ladies, the ruffles on Jelena’s dress look wonderful and perform well during match play. They even look great when she’s sitting idle during a medical timeout.

For your eyes only: Jelena’s racquet and gym bags are from her line. We got to see another set — bedecked with bows — from earlier this year, at Indian Wells. (Check out the close-ups we took in the gallery below.) During one of Jelena’s matches, we spoke with Snezana, who was carrying a purse from the JJ line, and she mentioned that the bags are currently just available in Serbia (Marija, have you seen these around?). Oh wells, I’m sure the Floridians will eat this up when the Jankovics are ready to expand stateside.
