Jelena Jankovic has been defeated by her countrywoman Vesna Dolonc in the second round of the Wimbledon Championships. Dolonc won the match in the straight sets by 7-5, 6-2.

It was a huge surprise. Jankovic had entered this competition in decent form and she was expected to get better of Dolonc with ease. But, that wasn’t the case to be. She got completely outfoxed and suffered the humiliation of straight set defeat against a player who is much lower in world rankings than her.

Dolonc didn’t need too much time to knock her compatriot out of the competition. She won the match in just one and half hours.

Dolonc hit a total of 17 winners in the match. Jankovic also hit 13 winners, but, with that, she also committed 26 unforced errors which neutralised the affect of those winners.

Dolonc didn’t have an impressive start in the opening set. In the second game, she gifted Jankovic a couple of break points. Jankovic capitalized on one of them and took a lead of 2-0.

However, Dolonc bounced back immediately and with a breakthrough in the very next game, she reduced Jankovic’s lead to 2-1. A serve hold for Dolonc in the next game equalized the scores.

Dolonc dropped her serve again in the 6th game to get trailed by 2-4. The next two games went with the serve and when the 8th game finished, the score was 5-3 in the favour of Jankovic.

Jankovic just needed to serve out the 9th game to seal the opener, but, she couldn’t do that. Dolonc broke her serve twice successively (in the 9th and the 11th game) and won the next 4 games on the trot to clinch the set by 7-5.

In the second set, Dolonc came all guns blazing. She got a breakthrough in the very first game and was off to a lead of 2-0.

There were no breakthroughs in the next 4 games and at the end of the 6th game; Dolonc was leading by 4-2.

Jankovic dropped her serve again in the 7th game which took Dolonc ahead by 5-2. The 23 years old just had to serve out the next game to pull off the win and she made no mistake in doing that.

In the third round, Dolonc will take on the Belgian player Kirsten Flipkens who defeated Bojana Jovanovski in the second round.
