Jelena Jankovic coasts through in Hong Kong Open

Fourth seed Jelena Jankovic wasted no time in dumping Anastasia Rodionova out of the Hong Kong Open, losing just two games.

Jelena Jankovic took less than an hour to beat Anastasia Rodionova and secure her place in the quarter-finals of the Hong Kong Open on Wednesday.

The former world number one suffered a first-round defeat against Dominika Cibulkova at the China Open earlier this month, but has responded with two straight-sets victories in Hong Kong.
Fourth seed Jankovic, given a wildcard place in the tournament, needed only 59 minutes to see off outsider Rodionova 6-0 6-2.

The Serb punished the world number 255 from Australia by winning five of six break points on the Rodionova serve and did not lose a game on her own serve in a clinical display.
Jankovic will come up against Daria Gavrilova in the last eight after the sixth seed ousted Lara Arruabarrena 7-6 (7-4) 6-1.

Arruabarrena toiled on serve as Gavrilova earned 13 break points, with the Russian bossing the second set after being edged out in a tie-break in the first.
Elsewhere, Samantha Stosur and Heather Watson will meet in the last eight after wins over Monica Puig and Lee Ya-hsuan respectively.
