Jelena Jankovic, does she has some Asian blood in her?

She's from Yugoslavia, or they called it Serbia and Montenegro nowadays, but she looked Asian to me,

She is not Asian. A lot of people from Yugoslavia look just like that. Weird Al Yankovich looks like that, too. (He is of Yugoslavian heritage.)

The one European player who has a little bit Asian blood is Myskina. One of her grandmothers is Asian or partly Asian. (Note, however, that "Asians" in Russia do not mean *East Asians* like Chinese, Korean, or Japanese. Instead they are most likely the Central Asian nomad like Khazaks, or one of the Siberian tribes, Mongolians, Eskimos, etc.)

OK. I have to concede that I am not 100% sure. I haven't met the Jankovic families. But what I can say is that a lot of people from Russia and Eastern Europe I have met have this "Asian" look yet they would tell you that they do not have an Asian in their family.

Yes but aren't there many 'Eskimos' in Syberia? They probably are just selling you wolf tickets...

It's her eyes - she has Mongolian eye folds. It's more prevelant in the Chinese, Indigenous "Indians," Eskimoes, Siberians and the Mongol people of Northern Asia. Combine that with the fact that she has black hair and she does look a little bit Asian.

Well, I live in Eastern Europe and I have met really, really few people who look Asian.
Jankovic does look a bit Asian, but she is not related to Asia in any way.

Hungarian, Turkish, Finnish, Japanese are connected through Mongolian...
We have some similar words... similar physical characters...

Some Russian (former Soviet Unions) are also the same.
I am 1/8 Russian...
And in Siberia, there are many "native" people who look like Eskimo/Native Americans, or Japanese called "Ainu", they all look like Asians... Some South Americans natives too.

she's not asian, it just happens she has a bit strange position if eyes, but asians don't have long thick noses like she does, she has a very strange eyes, nose which is going a bit on the left side and it looks very long, but not an asian, maybe some serbian "country" blood
