Default Poor Jelena Jankovic... can't even get a racquet sponsor?

I really like Jelena Jankovic, but was shocked watching last night's match against Ivanovic that Jelena was playing with a blacked out racquet with no logo on her strings. Has she fallen so far that she can't even get a racquet sponsor?

For the uninitiated, if a racquet maker won't pay the player using their racquet, players will spray the frame black and will not stencil the logo on the strings. They don't want to give the manufacturer free advertising.
