Bouchard topples no. 2 seed Jankovic to make Family Circle Cup semi

Bouchard topples no. 2 seed Jankovic to make Family Circle Cup semi

By Callum Ng

Canada’s top woman Eugenie Bouchard has qualified for the semifinal of the Family Circle Cup, beating tournament no. 2 seed and former World no 1., Serbian Jelena Jankovic.

The 20-year-old, seeded no. 6 in the tournament won in three sets, 6-3, 4-6, 6-3. She served two aces and broke Jankovic six times in the two hour and two minute match. Jankovic is the WTA no. 8 at the moment.

Just yesterday Bouchard, WTA-ranked no. 20, knocked off Venus Williams in three sets to qualify for the quarters.

She is having a stellar year so far, reaching the semis of the Australian Open in January, eventually falling to China’s Li Na.

Bouchard’s match was the first quarterfinal of the day, with the rest, and ultimately her next opponent, playing later.
