Jankovic opened the match on a great note and broke Stosur's serve early on to pocket the first set 6-3. The second set saw a shift in momentum when Stosur came back from a break deficit to take the matters into her own hand by reeling off five games in a row for a 3-0 final set lead.

It was then that Jankovic regrouped herself and brought the inner fighter to the fore to not only level the match but also hold a considerable lead in the tie-break which she consolidated and completed the two hour 50 minute match with a 6-3, 5-7, 7-6(4) scoreline.
