The occasionally gloomy Jelena Jankovic is headed to her first Grand Slam final after defeating Elena Dementieva 6-4, 6-4, in a sloppy, nervous match. In total, there were 8 breaks of serve and 66 unforced errors.
Jelena Jankovic calmly strolled to the locker room after the match–generally a moment heavy in emotions–like it was an easy third-round win. Dinara Safina, who is about to play Serena Williams for the other spot in the finals, was in the hallway and tried to stop Jankovic and congratulate her, but Jelena was too spaced out to notice. Then, just as she was entering the women’s locker room door, Jankovic screamed to no one in particular: "Get me one of those protein drinks!"
Someone mumbled something back.
"No, I’ll be out soon!" she replied.
The lady knows what she wants.
