Davenport stuns Jankovic in Bali
September 15th, 2007

Top-seeded Serbian Jelena Jankovic was upset by new mom and former world No. 1 American Lindsay Davenport in Friday’s quarterfinal action at the $225,000 Commonwealth Bank Tennis Classic.

Playing her first singles tennis since last September, the unseeded 31-year- old Davenport is now 3-0 this week after stunning the world No. 3 Jankovic 6-4, 2-6, 6-2. The 22-year-old Jankovic was fresh off her quarterfinal appearance at the U.S. Open last week.

The three-time major titlist Davenport is now a perfect 4-0 lifetime against Jankovic, who has been one of the top players on the WTA Tour this season, with four of her five career titles coming in 2007.

The 2005 Bali titlist Davenport, who gave birth to her first child, a son named Jagger, in June of this year, will meet little-known Italian Sara Errani in Saturday’s semifinals.

Second-seeded Slovakian Daniela Hantuchova avoided an upset on Day 5, as she whipped Japanese qualifier Ayumi Morita 6-2, 6-1 on the hardcourt at the beautiful Grand Hyatt Bali.

A mild upset occurred when Errani erased seventh-seeded Japanese Aiko Nakamura 6-1, 6-2, while one other quarterfinal saw Sorana Cirstea overcome her fellow Romanian Edina Gallovits 3-6, 6-4, 7-6 (7-3). The qualifier Cirstea will meet Hantuchova in Saturday’s other semi.

This week’s winner will collect $32,340.
