Who is youngster Jelena Jankovic? I noticed that she has advanced to the Quarterfinals in Sanford as a Wildcard. With some research I see that she is Yugoslavia's second ranked player, next to who else but Jelena Dokic.

She's got to have talent, but how much? Could we be seeing two Yugoslavian Jelena inside the top 100 soon? She won the Aussie Open Girls in 2000, and seemed to have a very successful career as a junior? What is her game style? It's always great to see new players from different countries come up in the rankings, so it would be great to see her crack the top 100 or something...

Any info on Jelena?

BTW, what happened to Sandra Nacuk?

She has a great junior record - people have been talking about her for a while. Plenty of good juniors don't make it in pros, but she's had steadily improving results & I think she should make top 30 within a year or two at least.
