In strange news Bojana Jovanovski has been getting a lot of great press for her level of play, but now also because of stupidity! Bojan’s agent booked her ticket to play the tournament at Carlsbad (San Diego County), California, however he accidently booked a ticket to Carlsbad, New Mexico.
“They said they’d be there in 15 minutes,” she said. “So when they didn’t come. I called them back and they said we are here looking for you. I said what do you mean, I’m the only person [outside]? Who else do you see?”
Eventually, they worked out that Jovanovski was in the wrong place and she went back into the airport to get the next flight back to Albuquerque, which didn’t leave until 5:30 AM, and then caught another to San Diego. Bojan Jovanovski had to stay up all night and then pretty much go straight to the venue to play her match, which she only just lost in three sets to Roberta Vinci.
