Jelena Jankovic has found herself involved in another online video controversy. Just days after being part of Serena Williams’s “I’m Not Justine” comment at the Italian Open, Jankovic, after winning her match today over Ana Ivanovic at the Madrid Open, was caught by cameras off-court apparently mocking Ivanovic’s now trademark fist pumps.
From the looks of the video, Jankovic appears to be talking to her team and her mother Snezana Jankovic who earlier in the month criticized Ivanovic for not playing in Serbia’s Fed Cup tie versus Slovakia. Whether or not you approve of Jankovic’s actions, the fact that she seems to ignore being on camera is what interests me the most as it appears she doesn’t care. Players have to know their every move on court is being taped. But how they choose to act, even if not in the most appropriate way, is their choice.
