Bouchard ousts Jankovic to reach Charleston semis
Charleston, SC (SportsNetwork.com) - Rising Canadian Eugenie Bouchard took out former champion Jelena Jankovic in Friday's quarterfinal action at the Family Circle Cup tennis event.
The 20-year-old sixth-seeded Australian Open semifinalist Bouchard toppled the second-seeded former world No. 1 Jankovic 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 on the green clay at Family Circle Tennis Center, where Jankovic titled in 2007 and was last year's runner-up to the great Serena Williams.
Bouchard is now 2-1 lifetime against Jankovic, who beat the Canadian in straight sets in the quarterfinals here a year ago.
The 2014 Charleston champ will earn $120,000.
