Jankovic Survives, Williams Sisters Friday at French Open

“Overall it was very difficult because of the conditions,” said Jankovic of the rain. “I came here around 9 in the morning. To be waiting around in the locker room, it’s really not easy. Then you go on the court, and I started pretty well…the conditions were much more different than in the first round when I played, because the court was much slower, the balls were heavier. So overall the play was much, much slower.”
