Top seed Jankovic upset in San Diego

1st seed Jelena Jankovic, playing in San Diego after a short break to rest a sprained ankle, led 4-0 last night in her first set against Alisa Kleybanova. But despite having set points, Jankovic lost both that set and the next one. Kleybanova's 7-56-2 upset of Jankovic puts her into the quarterfinals.

Dinara Safina's first round win gave fans hope, but yesterday, she, too, went out in the second round. 4th seed Agnieszka Radwanska defeated Safina 6-1, 6-3.

7th seed Shahar Peer fought off a challenge from Yaroslava Shvedova and defeated her 7-5, 6-4, and 2nd seed Sam Stosur defeated Melanie Oudin 6-4, 6-4.

I love Shahar but she needs to make the step up to the next level. She has no problem beating these middle of the range players ranked 10-30 but she can't lay a glove on either Williams, Cjisters or Henin. If Stosur can do it why can't she?

I like Shahar, too, and she often wins by wearing her opponent down. But she comes up against a wall when she plays someone who isn't troubled by all her retrieving and fighting. I haven't seen her play lately, so I don't know what she needs to add.
