WTA Bogota - Jelena Jankovic dumped out of doubles first round

The singles stars are not able to execute their skills in doubles matches, it seems, which is apparent from Jelena Jankovic's first-round loss at the Claro Open Colsanitas in Bogota, Colombia. Jankovic, the singles defending champion here, joined forces with Montenegrin Danka Kovinic, just to crash out of the event, following their 1-6, 6-3, 10-6 loss to Chieh-Yu Hsu and Elitsa Kostova.

Earlier, American Sloane Stephens was also trapped by an upset bug, as she went down in the first round of the doubles event, and subsequently lost in the singles category as well.
