Jankovic next for Ana

Jankovic next for Ana

Ana’s quarter-final encounter with Jelena Jankovic will take place sometime after 1.30pm local time today (10.30pm Central European Time). It is scheduled as the second match on the Stadium Court.

The pair have met once before, in Zurich last year when Ana won 6-2, 6-1. However, Jankovic was in the midst of a slump then that saw her lose 13 out of 14 matches and slide down the rankings.

She is very much back and currently resides at No.28. Like Ana, she is yet to drop a set in three matches here. She beat defending champion Venus Williams at Wimbledon last month.

Ana will also be in doubles action today alongside Maria Kirilenko. The teenagers face third seeds Daniela Hantuchova and Ai Sugiyama in a second round match that is a repeat of last week’s showdown in San Diego. The elder team triumphed 6-7, 6-1, 6-3 on that occasion.

The match is scheduled as the fourth on the Stadium Court and is expected to start sometime after 5pm local time (2am Saturday Central European Time).
