Jelena Jankovic vs. Francesca Schiavone- 2011 Cincinnati Open Match Preview
Now here's a contest many of us had been waiting for. Both Jelena Jankovic and Francesca Schiavone understand each other's eagerness to return to winner's circle as both of them are hungry for silverware for more than 12 months now. How will this nail-biter unfold? Read here.

 

Former World No. Jelena Jankovic takes on 2011 French Open finalist Francesca Schiavone for a place in the quarterfinals of the 2011 Western and Southern Open, a WTA premier event being played here in Cincinnati, USA.

Serbian star Jelena Jankovic shot to super stardom in 2008 when she claimed three titles in a row in Beijing, Stuttgart and Moscow to claim the top spot in WTA rankings. With a final finish at the US Open to Serena Williams, she successfully ended the year ranked No.1 in the world. However, its been more than a year that Jankovic has laid her hands on the winner's trophy with her last triumph coming in Indian Wells in 2010.

At 31, Italian Francesca Schiavone's court movement and power play is worthy of outclassing a teenager on a rise. After winning her maiden Grand Slam title at the 2010 French Open, Francesca Schiavone achieved new heights in her career with big wins over some of the best players in the business. However, in the absence of another title, the Italian star hasnt really been able to prove her mettle on circuit. Schiavone's best run this year came once again at Roland Garros where she reached her second consecutive final.

Both players have contested five matches already and Jankovic has a slight edge in the head-to-head at 3-2. In the pair's most recent meeting at Roland Garros, Jankovic lost a three setter to Schiavone who went all the way to the finals before losing to Na Li.

Schiavone is definitely a hard nut to crack on the claycourt but like Jankovic, she is an accompolished hardcourt player as well. The Italian is expected to utilise her experience to the fullest to score a three sets win in today's match up.

TennisEarth.com's Pick - Francesca Schiavone in three sets.
