Jelena Jankovic v Maria Sharapova Live
Second seeded Maria Sharapova of Russia will be up against Serbian 18th seed Jelena Jankovic in the French Open 2013 quarter-finals.
Sharapova is yet to drop a set in this tournament so far and will look to continue building on her good form. In her fourth round match, she was against a tough opponent in Sloane Stephens and yet she managed to steamroll her in straight sets. Earlier she beat Jie Zheng, Eugenie Bouchard and S Hsieh in straight sets too to make it this far.
Jankovic is a former world number one and has reached the semi-finals at the French Open on three previous occasions. This time around it will be tough for her given that her opponent is a tough, world number two Sharapova, an opponent she’s beaten only once before this - way back in 2007.
However, what Jankovic has behind her back is good form and that’s something she will look to unleash on Sharapova who looked a tad ruffled in her recent matches.
Jankovic crushed Jamie Hampton in her fourth round match, dropping only two games on her way to the last-eight stage after having stunned Samantha Stosur in her previous encounter.
