Top seed Jelena Jankovic loses to Yan Zi in Bangalore Open quarterfinals


World No.4 Jelena Jankovic lost in the quarterfinals of the Bangalore Open in India as Yan Zi of China defeated her 6-3 3-6 6-3. Jankovic struggled with a shoulder injury during the third set of the match.

Top-seeded Jankovic suffered her second career loss to world No.54 Yan, who has now improved to 2-0 in career against the Serb. Jankovic’s previous loss to Yan was in Bangkok last year, where she was also top-seeded but had to retire because she couldn’t stand the heat.

Yan, looking for her second career title, will take on fourth-seed Patty Schnyder of Switzerland in Saturday’s semifinal.
