Jankovic jettisoned at Aussie Open
Jelena Jankovic was overmatched Sunday in Australia by Marion Bartoli. The Serb failed to achieve her first Grand Slam title and might lose her No. 1 ranking, to boot.
MELBOURNE, Australia -- Jelena Jankovic quite likely played away her world No. 1 ranking Sunday.
