"My Career is at Risk" - Jankovic

Jelena Jankovic claims she is risking her career by playing with an injured leg but says she is determined to help Serbia win the Hopman Cup.

Jankovic was forced to retire in the second set of her singles match on Thursday but returned for the mixed doubles as Serbia beat Argentina 2-1.

"I shouldn't be here, I am really risking my career," Jankovic said.

"I shouldn't be playing but I love playing for my country and I will just try the best I can."

The world number three, who strained her right thigh on Wednesday, could not complete her singles match against Gisela Dulko as Argentina went 1-0 up in the mixed team competition.

But she came back for the doubles to help compatriot Novak Djokovic beat Gisela Dulko and Juan Ignacio Chela 6-1 3-6 7-6.

Serbia will meet the USA in the final on Friday where Jankovic, 22, is set to play former world number one Serena Williams in the singles.

"I'm having a hard time on the court," admitted Jankovic. "I don't know why I am still here, I really don't, but I want Serbia to win."

It's her own fault for playing after getting the injury against Golovin.

She is either being overly dramatic or is being ridiculously careless about her future...I hope its not going to turn into an injury plagued year.

Re: "My Career is at Risk" - Jankovic

She's exagerating, I think.I don't believe she's risking her whole career by playing just one game at the Hopman Cup.She will be fine.
