Serbian fourth seed Jelena Jankovic eased past Slovakia's Daniela Hantuchova 6-4 6-2 to reach the quarter-finals of the French Open on Monday.

Jankovic, a semi-finalist in Paris in 2007 and 2008, was rarely troubled by the 23rd seed during her one-hour and 25-minute stroll on Centre Court. Jelena and Daniela played a very tense first set, Jelena had lots of chances for break which she didn't use, but in the key moments she kept her cool and closed the first set out with 6:4. In the second set was all about Jelena, who improved her serve and movement drastically to win the match in straight sets, 6:4, 6:2.

The former world number one, looking to clinch her maiden grand slam tournament, wrapped up the win on her first match point when Hantuchova misfired a service return.

In the quarterfinals Jelena will meet with Yaroslava Shvedova of Kazakhstan. The match will be played on Wednesday.
