Jankovic made to work to reach French Open fourth round

Paris: Fourth seed Jelena Jankovic secured her place in the fourth round of the French Open with a 6-4 7-6 win over Ukraine’s Alona Bondarenko on Saturday.

The Serbian, twice a semi-finalist in Paris, kept her cool in the key moments although she made 33 unforced errors in fading light on Suzanne Lenglen court.

Bondarenko, the 27th seed, fought back from a break down in the decider, but made a hash of the tiebreak, losing it 7-3 after one hour and 46 minutes when she netted a routine backhand.
Jankovic will next face Slovakian 23rd seed Daniela Hantuchova for a quarter-final spot.
