Jelena Jankovic of Serbia advanced to the quarterfinals of the Toray Pan Pacific Open on Wednesday when Russia's Elena Vesnina was forced to retire with a left thigh injury.
Jankovic was leading 6-1, 3-0 when the match was stopped.

The former world No. 1 is the highest seeded player remaining in the $2 million tournament.

"I don't really think about that," said Jankovic, seeded seventh.
"I just think about my game and what I have to do on the court. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself."

Jankovic will meet France's Marion Bartoli in the quarterfinals on Thursday.
Bartoli, seeded 14th, recovered from a set down to defeat Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova of Russia, 4-6, 6-2, 7-5.
Jankovic has lost to Bartoli twice this year, at the Australian Open and at Stanford.

Jelena's statistics in match against Vesnina:
