It’s taken more than a couple of years, but it looks like former No. 1 Jelena Jankovic will finally be moving into the home she had constructed in ritzy Santa Fe, a part of San Diego County in California.

Jankovic visited the house last week, which she says has eight bedrooms, a tennis court, a pool and an unspecified number of bathrooms.

“The furniture is not there yet. When I was entering [the gate community] I was saying,’ I’m the owner.’ They were looking at me like, you’re the owner? You’re only like 27 years old,’” she said with a laugh. “They were looking at me like, Get out of here. You don’t belong here. I had on like a cap and some sunglasses. No wonder. I don’t think even my mom could recognize me dressed up like that. But it was funny. Then I got to my house and it was nice to see the improvement. I’m always on the road, so my dad is spending a lot time here helping out, helping with the work. Looks great so far. I am quite excited.”

The Serbian, who spent much of her youth training in Florida, is hoping to move in during the off-season and spend part of post-career life there.

“It’s just so beautiful,” she said. “Just traveling around here is amazing. I really love it, so I cannot wait. While I’m playing I’m going to be all over the place. I’m traveling all the time. But when I stop, when I finish my career, probably going to spend a lot of time here.”
