When Tennis Players Ride The Crimson Tide

Lost in yesterday's huge win for American teenage Melanie Oudin was the loser, former world number one Jelena Jankovic. Turns out she was suffering from a malady you don't normally see on injury reports.

Asked if he she had been suffering from heat stroke or dehydration, Jankovic told reporters "I don't know. It's some woman problems as well. It's not easy being a woman, you know sometimes. All these things happen. What can I do?"

Questioned about whether her monthly cycle had ever affected her so dramatically before in a match, she said: "No, I never had a problem like that in the past. It was my first time experience."

Ahem.
