Jelena advanced to the semifinals of the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells after defeating Russian
Alisa Kleybanova.

Jelena Jankovic rallied from a 2-4 second-set deficit to beat Alisa Kleybanova 6-4, 6-4 and reach
the women's semifinals.

Jankovic won the final four games of the match, twice breaking Kleybanova, to extend her best
showing of the year. Jankovic made the semifinals at Indian Wells in 2008, and went on to finish
the year ranked No. 1 in the world.

But she struggled last year, prompting changes. She's pared down her playing schedule, lost
 weight, and dropped her coach earlier this month.

"I haven't been playing well," she said. "So it's nice to get that feeling back and to be winning
again and be in the end of the tournament again."

At the start of the two-week event, the locker room was so crowded Jankovic could barely set
her racket bag down. She arrived Thursday and found plenty of room.

"I like that feeling," she said. "I want to be at the end of the tournament where there's no one and
there's only a couple of us standing. That means I'm doing well."
