Instead, Jankovic felt fortunate to move to the quarter-finals when so many other competitors will likely have to play twice yesterday.
“At the end of the day, I was lucky,” she said. “I came out and played quite well.”
In the doubles quarter-finals, top seeds Andrea Hlavackova of the Czech Republic and Liezel Huber of the US defeated Taiwan’s Chan Hao-ching and Olga Govortsova of Belarus 6-3, 6-3.
