Jelena Jankovic, a 25-year-old Serbian who is the sixth-seeded player at the BNP Paribas Open, is hoping to be moved in to her 20,000-square-foot new-construction home in Rancho Santa Fe sometime this year.

"It's on a hill," Jankovic said of the lot where her new house is being built. "It's one of the best spots." She said she can see the ocean "a little bit" from one of her balconies. The house will have three levels and a 10-car garage. "I have five cars for now," she said. She also raved about all the closet space and that there are two master bedrooms. "One for woman, one for man," she said.

Would she would have a man to share all this space? "I have a boyfriend for now, but I don't know," she said. And of course the new home will have a tennis court.
