Jankovic thinks Murray has made a mistake

LONDON (Reuters) - Andy Murray’s brother Jamie must have thought he had pulled off a coup when Jelena Jankovic agreed to play mixed doubles with him at Wimbledon.

The women’s world number three, however, thinks the British doubles specialist has made a huge mistake.

“It’s not my thing. I‘m not a good doubles player. I don’t think I‘m going to be useful for him. He made a bad choice,” said the French Open semi-finalist.

The Serb also scotched rumours that she was hoping for a love-match out of the association.

“It was the funniest thing that I’ve heard lately that I have a sweet spot for Jamie Murray. Where did that (come) from?,” she said.

“If I don’t really know the guy, how can I like him. I just want to confirm that it’s not true. His agent said I was first on his list to play so maybe he has a soft spot for me!”
