Jankovic through to 3rd round at Wimbledon

4th seed Jelena Jankovic had trouble today with her second serve--and with Aleksandra Wozniak, her opponent. She dropped the first set, but wound up with a 4-6, 6-2, 6-4 victory. She also hit 50 winners. In the third round, Jankovic will play Alona Bondarenko--again. They played each other in the third round of the Australian Open (Bondarenko won), and in the third round of the French Open (Jankovic won).

13th seed Shahar Peer was upset 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 by Angelique Kerber. Jarmila Groth defeated Melanie Oudin 6-4, 6-3. And Regina Kulikova upset Yaroslava Shvedova, 6-2, 6-4.

Yanina Wickmayer defeated Kirsten Flipkens 7-6, 6-4. Flipkens had several set points in the first set, and couldn't convert them for one reason or another. She also had some bad line calls, none of which was overruled by the umpire (no surprise, considering it was Kramer).

Kim Clijsters, Justine Henin and Venus Willliams won their matches. Williams defeated Eastbourne champion Ekaterina Makarova, who failed to win a single game in the first set. She did win four games in the second, but her serve failed her in the end. Williams, on the other hand, did a great job of serving throughout the match.
