Well, your Spin keeper thought this was the photo of the week, the day and night when the lights went out in Montreal. (Kudos to you if you get the pop-culture reference there.) Turns out that was just a dimly-lit warmup act for the main event: Jelena Jankovic breaking a sports bra strap midmatch, and a woman courtside helping her remedy the function-meets-fashion conundrum.

Jankovic would go on to defeat Sloane Stephens by the that's-so-them score of 6-7 (7), 6-4, 7-6 (4). Here's the match's tense third-set replay:

The real would-be winner here: Jankovic's clothing sponsor, if a logo actually adorned her bright-yellow dress. In lieu of that, I guess the WTA tour wins. But back to what matters most here: Got a great caption for this image?
