Jelena Jankovic may have to pull out of the Olympics with a calf injury she sustained on Friday.
The Serbian said a sore right calf may prevent her from taking the court Sunday against Cara Black of Zimbabwe.
Regardless of whether Jankovic plays, she's assured of climbing from No. 2 to No. 1 in the new rankings Monday. She'll move ahead of another Serb, Ana Ivanovic, who has led the rankings since winning the French Open in June.
"Hopefully I will somehow be healthy and ready to play my best tennis," Jankovic said Saturday. "I don't know. I will see Sunday how everything will go. If I will not be able to do my best on the court, I will not go. I will not risk that."
Jankovic said the sore calf has forced her to curtail her practice routine. She said the injury stemmed from a torn meniscus in her left knee that bothered her at Wimbledon, where she lost in the fourth round.
"Because I had an injury on my left knee, my right leg was working so much harder," she said. "It was compensating. I was forcing the other muscles to work harder.
"I'm not in the best shape in the moment."
Let's make sure I understand this. When #1 was on the line, she played both LA and Montreal with a relatively severe knee injury. Now, she's assured of the #1 ranking on Sunday but she's thinking about withdrawing from the Olympics?
This is BS. I don't know what's going on in JJ's head. If she wants to stop the sound of screaming lambs, she needs to stop doing this crap and make rational, logical, sound decisions.
