Jankovic crashes out

Jelena Jankovic became the latest big name to crash out of Wimbledon after slumping to a straight-sets defeat to Tamarine Tanasugarn this afternoon.

The number two seed was simply not at the races on Court 18, losing 6-3 6-2 to the veteran world number 60, who finally reached the quarter-finals after six previous fourth-round exits.

Tanasugarn could hardly have wished for an easier passage against a truly out-of-sorts Jankovic, who delivered an error-strewn display to all-but gift her opponent victory.
