Former world number one Jelena Jankovic has given birth to a baby girl according to reports in the Serbian media. She has been romantically involved with Serbian doctor Branko Barać.
Jankovic first met Barać at the Adria Tour tennis tournament organized by Novak Djokovic. Many players including Novak Djokovic tested positive for COVID-19 during the Adria tour.
Jankovic went to a private clinic for a COVID-19 test and again ran into Barać. Soon thereafter, the couple started dating. The couple then spent their vacation together in Montenegro.
