Video: Jankovic Changes Underwear During Match

Jelena Jankovic is a busy woman. The Serbian tennis star not named Ana Ivanovic doesn’t have time to run to the locker room when she needs to change her underwear. And for that, we thank her:

But by further uncovering Jelena’s mid-match panty removal, we learn that this clip is actually an oldie but goodie.

This footage was from Jankovic’s 2nd round match against Marion Bartoli in the 2006 French Open. And Jelena’s on-court undie switch seemed to pay off. After losing the first set 2-6, Jankovic went on to beat Bartoli 6-4, 6-1 - and gain millions of new male fans in the panty-changing process.

But just because the clip is two years old, that doesn’t mean we can’t all discover a new found appreciation for Jankovic’s courtside performances.

And we applaud whichever TV station it was that kept committed to offering non-stop coverage of Jelena’s underwear uncovering & recovering.
