Tennis star Jelena Janković served up her massive spec mansion in San Diego for $13.5 million.

Janković purchased the two-acre property in Rancho Santa Fe for $1.53 million in 2008 – the same year she was the top-ranked women’s player in the world. The 15,100 square-foot custom estate was completed in 2011, Mansion Global reported.

Listing agent Ryan Dalzell with Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty said Janković spent more than $10 million on the three-story home as well as landscaping.

The Mediterranean-style mansion was designed includes a home theater, eight bedrooms and 11 bathrooms. The gated property on Top O Morning Way features a tennis court, infinity pool, private gym, 12-car garage and views of the Crosby Estates golf course community.

Dalzell said Janković plans to buy a slightly smaller home in San Diego. She is from Serbia and primarily lives in Dubai.

Janković held the world No. 1 title in singles in 2008 and is a Wimbledon mixed doubles champion. She has twice been named Sportswoman of the Year by Serbia’s National Olympic Committee.

According to a survey last summer by real estate data firm LendingTree, 11 percent of all homes in San Diego were valued at over $1 million – putting it in the top five cities in that category. But along with the rest of Southern California, it saw some of the slowest periods for home and condo sale in over a decade last year. [Mansion Global] – Gregory Cornfield
