This is something that Jelena Jankovic waits long ago. Too long I would say. The last time when she was in WTA final was in Indian Well three years ago. So, very long without significant result for someone who was world No.1 in the past. But now she has great chance to reach WTA final. For all these years while Jankovic was in bad shape, there were some moments when we thought she is on right way to come back to world top. But as by the rule after couple good matches followed unexpected defeat. And so on again and again. But this time I doubt it will be like that. After all, this time Jelena is competing on one WTA tour of much lower quality. Even now in SF she will face opponent who is far away from Top 100. Karin Knapp is only on 133rd place on WTA standings. Jelena Jankovic was set for first seeded player on this tournament and so far she confirmed the role of biggest favorite. The way to the first trophy in three years is much easier after two Italian girls Francesca Schiavone and Flavia Pennetta dropped from the draw earlier.
I believe in Jankovic this time. In so far rounds played, Jankovic lost only one set (in opening match against Julia Cohen). But even back then she managed to cover this handicap line of (-3.5) games. Also it should be mentioned that Jankovic lost in SF of doubles, so her fully focus will be only this competition in single. This tournament worth 280 WTA points. For Jankovic this is great chance to make couple steps up and to enter again into top 20 (at this point she is 24th). Serbian player has not played here in last season so in case of success, Jankovic would add all 280 points on hers current 1690.
