Former world number 1 Serbian player Jelena Jankovic was interviewed by Serbian newspaper Kurir, where she mainly talked about why she decided to stop playing for the Serbian Fed Cup team, but she also answered one question about our champion Rafael Nadal. Here is what she said about Rafa.

Q. On Twitter, photos showed up in which you play billiards with Rafael Nadal. Who won in that duel?

JELENA JANKOVIC: Partly, I was watching Nadal while he was playing billiards with my friend (it was a girl, not a boy) because at the same time I was watching what’s was going on the court on which I was to play later. He is a great guy, amazing tennis player and person. Few years ago when I was hurt in Indian Wells he let me see his physio.


P.S. Has anyone seen those photos of Rafa and Jelena playing billiards? Seems like we missed them.
