Tennis pro Jelena Jankovic serves up Rancho Santa Fe mansion at $13.5 million


Serbian tennis player Jelena Jankovic has put her custom-built home in Rancho Santa Fe in play at $13.5 million.

The Mediterranean mansion, designed by Mark Radford, sits on about two acres in a guard-gated community with a tennis court and a swimming pool. The more than 15,000-square-foot house has a home theater, a billiards room, five fireplaces and a 12-car subterranean garage.

Eye-catching details include walnut woodwork, Swarovski crystal chandeliers and travertine stone walls. Rich wood detailing fills the vaulted-ceiling office, and the wine cellar has storage for 1,200 bottles. In the family room, there’s a wet bar.


Including two master suites, the house has eight bedrooms and 11 bathrooms. A lower level holds a gym, a massage room, a dry sauna and a steam shower.

“It’s too big for my own good,” the tennis player said of the home in 2012. “The good thing is if I have guests, I don’t have to see them. We’ll need walkie-talkies.”

Jankovic, 33, is a former Women’s Tennis Assn. No. 1-ranked singles player. In addition to more than a dozen WTA singles titles, she won the Wimbledon mixed doubles title in 2007 with Jamie Murray.

She has twice been named Sportswoman of the Year by Serbia’s National Olympic Committee.
