Jelena Jankovic

Jelena Janković finished 2013 ranked #8 in the world on the WTA Tour.  Janković became a member of the Prince team in 2006 using Prince’s new ground breaking technology “03”.  It clearly complimented her game and style as she would climb to #1 in the world on the WTA tour in 2008.  After a brief hiatus from Prince racquets, from 2011- 2012 Janković returned to the Prince team in May of 2012 and improved her ranking from #44 to the top 20 by the end of 2012.  She is very well liked on the tour by both the players and the fans and shows a true spirit for the love of the game of tennis.  She currently uses the new Prince LS Red 105 with Prince Natural Gut strings and will be carrying the Prince Tour Team bag on court this spring.  In her spare time, Janković is also recognized for her charity work with UNICEF. Janković became an ambassador of UNICEF for Serbia promoting the rights for children.
