Leggings prove unlucky for Jankovic

Following on from her trendsetting wardrobe choice on Monday, Jelena Jankovic continued with the leggings theme on day three of Wimbledon.

However, the number 16 seed became one of the many casualties of a tumultuous day out of the courts of the All England Club.

Jankovic crashed out in her second round match in straight sets losing to compatriot Vesna Dolonc 5-7, 2-6.

The white leggings, which saw her safely through against Britain's Johanna Konta, failed to prove a lucky charm against the world 97.

Jankovic wasn't the only high ranking player to crash out in the second round on Wednesday, with number two and three seeds, Victoria Azarenka and Maria Sharapova, both suffering early exits.

Ana Ivanovich and Caroline Wozniacki also saw their quest for Wimbledon glory cut short, losing convincingly to unseeded challengers.

With Jankovic and Azarenka's exits, the mantel of top leggings wearer falls on the shoulders of Eva Birnerova, who will play Puerto Rico's Monica Puig in Friday's third round match.
