Former World No. 1 Jelena Jankovic beat 2010 French Open champion Francesca Schiavone 6-3, 5-7, 6-4 in front of an equally filled Grandstand. The Serbian fell to the ground in relief after a Schiavone shot sailed long, receiving a standing ovation to cap off the close victory.
Jankovic, a Cincinnati champion in ’09, now meets World No. 15 Shuai Peng in the quarterfinals.

Australia’s Samantha Stosur defeated 2011 French Open champion Li Na of China 6-4, 3-6, 6-4. Stosur, last year’s French Open runner-up and a finalist in Toronto this year, has now defeated Li three times this year. Up next for the Australian is three-time Grand Slam champion Maria Sharapova, who advanced to the quarterfinals by beating World No. 13 Svetlana Kuznetsova.
Meanwhile, World No. 2 Vera Zvonareva also advanced to the quarterfinals, defeating Petra Martic 6-2, 6-2.
Zvonareva, a two-time Cincinnati finalist, defeated the qualifier Martic in just over an hour. She next faces World No. 23 Daniela Hantuchova, who defeated 2011 Eastbourne champion Marion Bartoli 6-3, 5-7, 6-3.
In other results from Thursday’s completed matches, the No. 8 seed Tomas Berdych beat Nicholas Almagro 6-2, 6-2, while World No. 4 Andy Murray took out American Alex Bogomolov Jr. 6-2, 7-5.
For the women, Nadia Petrova defeated American teenager Christina McHale, who upset World No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki on Wednesday.
