Rome: Petrova's retirement sends Dementieva to QF against Jankovic
Unfortunately, the match between Elena Dementieva and Nadia Petrova was never finished. Petrova retired from the match while Dementieva was leading and up a break at 4-3 due to a back injury. This retirement from Petrova sends Dementieva to her first quarterfinal appearance since her rib injury and she will face new Top 5-er Jelena Jankovic.

Jelena Jankovic has been in great form since the late last season and is tearing up the ranks real fast. She has already won a clay tournament this season at Tier 1 Charleston. Interestingly, Dementieva and Jankovic split all their previous matches in half. Who could forget their final 2 meetings? Just before last year's US Open, Elena Dementieva defeated Jelena Jankovic in a thrilling 3-set final in Los Angeles where she won her 6th career title. A few weeks later, they met at the quarterfinals of the US Open where Jankovic pulled an upset and cruised past Dementieva.

As I said earlier, Jankovic is in terrific form and is oozing with confidence. If Elena can manage to serve really well and trim down her errors, she can very well upset Jelena. Both women are not the toughest mentally but their baseline games are both good so Dementieva should be very aggressive and take charge to win this. I can't remember the last time Elena has beaten a Top 10 player so I hope she does it tomorrow.

Davai Elena!!!
