Jelena Jankovic Appoints New Coaching Staff

In an effort to improve her performances and go back to the form that saw her become the number one tennis player in the world, Jelena Jankovic has completely overhauled her coaching staff, hiring Henner Nehles as her new coach and Korey Goodwin as her new fitness instructor.
