Jankovic strolls into French Open last eight

Paris: Serbian fourth seed Jelena Jankovic eased past Slovakia`s Daniela Hantuchova 6-4, 6-2 to reach the quarter-finals of the French Open.

Jankovic, a semi-finalist in Paris in 2007 and 2008, was rarely troubled by the 23rd seed during her one-hour and 25-minute stroll on Centre Court.

The former world number one, looking to clinch her maiden grand slam tournament, wrapped up the win on her first match point when Hantuchova misfired a service return.

Jankovic will next face either Australia`s Jarmila Groth or Kazakh Yaroslava Shvedova.
