I was thinking the same thing the other day. Confuses me as to why someone with her profile cannot seal a racquet sponsor.

Re: Jelena Jankovic still has no racket sponsor?

Switching racquets now may put some more money in Jankovic's pocket, but it would be detrimental to her on-court results. Novak Djokovic struggled mightily earlier this year when he switched sticks, and Ivan Ljubicic went from the top 10 to the Tennis Witness Protection Program when he switched sticks. Those guys thought the reward ($$$$) outweighed the risk (poor results for a few months or years). Jelena Jankovic doesn't.

It's not that she can't; it's more like she doesn't want to, because she would have to switch racquets in the middle of the year. No amount of paint or lead tape can make a Prince Speedport look like another brand.

I'm sure it's a case of holding out until someone pays her what her agent is requesting, rather than nobody wants to sign her...

Jelena's Prince contract expired in December 2008. She clearly likes that bat, but they cannot come to terms about money.

Jelena did have the "P" on her strings in Toronto. Either they had a tentative deal and it fell through, or the stringer made a mistake.
