Sony Ericsson Championships: Jelena Jankovic reaches semifinals in Doha after beating Caroline Wozniacki
Jelena Jankovic defeated Caroline Wozniacki 62 62 to advance to the semifinals of the WTA Sony Ericsson Championships.
Jankovic broke twice in the first set and then took a 4-0 lead in the second. Wozniacki looked very tired after winning her two previous matches on Wednesday (she beat Victoria Azarenka) and Thursday (she beat Zvonareva) and often a step slow and failing to chase down balls.
Caroline can still advance if Victoria Azarenka loses to alternate Agnieszka Radwanska, who replaced Verz Zvonareva, later Friday.
Jankovic lost to Azarenka in her first match, then won her second when the injured Dinara Safina retired in the third game.
