Top-seeded Jelena Jankovic of Serbia defeated the Ukranian eighth seed Alona Bondarenko 6-2 6-1. Due to rain, the match was suspended for a few hours in the second set, with Jankovic leading 4-1. “It is not easy to wait for a few hours. Fortunately I could focus again from the start,” world No. 3 Jankovic said.

This was the seventh time Jankovic and Bondarenko faced each other, and Jankovic has increased her lead to 7-0.

Number four seed Dinara Safina beat Italy’s Flavia Pennetta 6-1 7-5.

FIRST SEMIFINAL: Jankovic vs. Safina >> Head-to-head 1-1, never played against each other on grass.

Third seed Anna Chakvetadze beat Angelique Kerber of Germany 6-2, 6-2.

Fifth-seeded Daniela Hantuchova overcame second-seeded Ana Ivanovic in straight sets 6-3 6-1. Ivanovic was broken in the seventh game and thereafter never performed to anything like her usual standard.
