The world’s tennis number one Jelena Jankovic has been in Mexico for the past ten days, working on the physical aspect of her game for the forthcoming WTA season. The Serb has been working with her fitness coach Pat Etcheberry, while she is to continue practicing her tennis elements in Florida.
Given the fact she will be defending her number one WTA rankings position in 2009, Jankovic will need to be in pristine physical condition. To aid her in the process, Jelena is accompanied in San Luis by former Mexican marathon runner German Silva.
– “The training process is rigorous and it contains many different exercises which are devised to increase strength, stamina and speed. I run a few kilometres every day and since I find it the most difficult of all tests, the coach has found me company – marathon runner German Silva.
Jankovic is looking forward to the final stage of her pre-season preparations, which will be conducted near her home in Bradenton, Florida.
