Tennis: Fly-girl Jelena hopes to take control over Melbourne
( dpa )- Jelena Jankovic is hoping to alleviate her various aches and pains with a shot of adrenaline with a helicopter run over Melbourne on Wednesday's day off at the Australian Open. But it might not be just a simple pleasure flight for the smiling Serb who upset defending champion Serena Williams in Tuesday's quarter-finals. Instead, Jankovic is planning a possible hand-on approach, actually taking control of the chopper. "I did it last year in Auckland and I drove (flew) my mom and some friends in the back," explained Jankovic . " They turned so pale, they were so scared. They couldn't wait until they landed. "But it's so much fun. I love doing that, and I want to see Melbourne from the top. It will be a nice experience, but I don't know if I do it now or when I end the tournament." Upon contemplation, Jankovic might have been stretching the truth just a touch about her piloting skills. "I have a lot of friends here, and they keep telling me they want to take me on a helicopter, and they want me to drive (fly) them.
"I don't know how safe is that ."
