Katie Spellman to work with Jovana Jaksic
Katie Spellman has joined forces with up and coming Serbian Jovana Jaksic.
Jovana started the year ranked No. 420 and this week is sitting on a ranking of No.162. She has won 5 ITF titles in 2013 and also qualified to make her WTA debut in Monterrey (she won her first round match vs Dushevina before losing in three tight sets to Maria Kirilenko). She also just qualified for the main draw in Guangzhou, China and will face Britain’s Laura Robson in the first round today.
Katie will provide PR support to Jovana as she climbs the WTA ladder, with a focus on media training, proactive PR, brand building, and promotional activities. Katie is also overseeing her new official player website, providing social media support and developing Jovana’s international sponsorship portfolio.
“Jovana is a breath of fresh air. I am excited to work with someone who is new to the WTA and ready to listen and develop her brand. Her personality shines through and I can’t wait for the international press to learn more about her.”
