Jelena Jankovic was topping the world rankings in the singles category of females

Jelena Jankovic was topping the world rankings in the singles category of females back in 2008, but, she lost her consistency quickly thereafter and slipped down.

The Serbian, however, reckons she is starting to play her best game again and if she continues her form, she might be able to get back to that top position in the coming months.

Jankovic can’t say she had a perfect Season this year. That wasn’t the case at all. She couldn’t jump much in the rankings either. She remained at the 22nd position at the end, but, with some really good displays in patches, she sent a message to her rivals that she was on the right track and they should be wary of her going into 2016.

Jankovic was particularly impressive in the last quarter of 2015 in Asia where she beat some really good players to win a couple of events and boost her overall winning percentage in the season.

In an interview recently, Jankovic said, “The main problem for me was the fact that I was getting injured on a regular basis and it not only affects you on physical fronts, but, psychologically as well. Each time you return to the tour, you have to begin fresh and you need a bit of time to settle down. It’s very difficult and frustrating to have to be in that position again and again.”

“Of late, I feel I am getting more and more consistent. The rhythm is getting better gradually and the confidence is coming back. So, it’s a positive sign and hopefully, I continue like this.”

Jankovic, who is now slowly getting into the league of veterans with her age getting past 30, is yet to win a Grand Slam. She just has one final appearance to her name; that is in the US Open of 2008.
