Director Tanja Brzakovic said the documentary was borne out of her fascination with Jankovic, the charismatic Serb who secured the year-ending women’s number one ranking with three successive titles in recent months.
“I am fascinated, above all, by Jelena’s energy and her being a real fighter: even when it seems a match is lost, she never gives up,” Brzakovic was quoted as saying in the Belgrade daily Blic.
The film starts with Jankovic beginning her day as any other ordinary girl, but soon switches to her strict daily regime, packed with training sessions and calls with the press and fans.
The outfits—made of silk, leather and lace—were designed for “young women who like to be noticed, feminine and unusual,” she was quoted as telling Blic.
“So far I have designed dresses, skirts and bags, but I would also like to do a swimwear line,” said Jankovic, who herself modelled several dresses at the show.
The biggest hit with the audience was a golden wedding dress, but Jankovic brushed off questions whether she would soon marry her boyfriend, Montenegrin waterpolo player Mladjan Janovic.
“The dress is in this colour since I end this year as a golden number one... but I am still too young and have no intention to marry,” said the 23-year old who is yet to claim a Grand Slam title.
