US Open Tennis: Yaroslava Shvedova upset Jelena Jankovic in New York
Yaroslava Shvedova upset Jelena Jankovic 6-3, 6-7 (4), 7-6 (6) in the second round of the U.S. Open in New York.
Jankovic and Shvedova exchanged 14 breaks of serve in a battle that ended when Jankovic sent consecutive forehands long to squander two match points and Shvedova, a Russian until last year, won with a forehand smash and an ace.
Jankovic lost in the finals at the U.S. Open last year but the former top-ranked player has not advanced past the fourth round at a Grand Slam this year.
Shvedova also reached the third round at the French Open this year.
