Jelena Jankovic: Melbourne heat no match for new shoes
Jelena Jankovic unexpectedly lost her 4 round match at Australian Open in two straight sets against Marion Bartoli (France).This is something of a big surprise because Jelena Jankovic is symbol for consistency on WTA tour. According to reports Jelena Jankovic was forced to step lively on court as the soles of her new Anta shoes failed to protect her feet from the Melbourne heat. The soles of her feet got so hot she was putting them on ice during the break. Despite the hot weather and hard court the shoes failed to provide the comfort the champion needs and so it may be ack to the drawing board for Chinese, Anta.
