Top 3 Tumble Trifecta Complete: Jankovic Loses

The Big Three in women’s tennis turned out to be big busts in Wimbledon. Unfortunately, we’re not talking about upper torsos here.

Jelena Jankovic

Jelena Jankovic became the latest high-ranking racket girl to be bounced from the English tourney, as the #2 player in the world lost in a 4th-round matchup against 60th-ranked Tamarine Tanasugarn of Thailand.

At least Jelena’s competition that was a little tougher than that of #3 Maria Sharapova (beaten by 154th-ranked Alla Kudryavtseva) and #1 Ana Ivanovic (beaten by 133rd-ranked Zheng Jie).

With Jankovic’s loss on Monday, this will be the first time in the Wimbledon women’s bracket that none of the top three ranked women in the world will have made it to the quarterfinals.

On the plus side, the upsets have cleared an easier path for Venus & Serena to potentially meet in an all-Williams sisters final. On the minus side, this would also mean more air time given to Richard Williams.
