Wild card entrant and seven time Grand Slam champion Justine Henin looked like her old self today when she took out fourth seed and Indian Wells champion Jelena Jankovic in a charismatic display of high quality tennis, winning 3-6, 7-6(4), 6-3 to secure her place in the semifinals of the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix, a WTA Premier event being held in Stuttgart, Germany.
"Jelena was really aggressive today. Slowly but surely I stayed focused and fought," Henin said. "It was a long time since we had played but a lot of them have been close. I just tried to stay calm and do my job the best I could."
Henin was later joined by surprise semifinalist Shahar Peer, who took out former world number one Dinara Safina 6-3, 6-2. Chinese Na Li's run also came to an end when an in-form Samantha Stosur edged past the Aussie Open semifinalist 6-3, 6-3 to reach the last four.
"Any match you can go through and not lose serve is a good day. I'm not sure what my percentage was but I saw at the end of the first set it was pretty hot. I knew I was doing the right things and I was able to continue that in the second set," Stosur said.
In one of the most shocking results from the day, Russian qualifier Anna Lapushchenkova emerged victorious against Paris Indoors finalist Lucie Safarova, winning 7-6(1), 1-6, 6-1 to enter the semifinals.
