Jelena Jankovic was the last player to move into the semifinals of the China Open. She defeated Daniela Hantuchova 7-5, 6-1 in today quarterfinal. Jelena was last year's Beijing runner-up to Hungarian Agnes Szavay.
"In the first set Daniela gave me trouble, and I had a tough time getting into the match,"
Jankovic said, "but in the second set I got my rhythm and was able to close it out. I'm happy to be in the semifinals."
Jankovic's semifinal opponent on Saturday will be fifth-seeded Russian Vera Zvonareva, while Zheng will take on fourth-seeded Russian Svetlana Kuznetsova.
