Two-time champion Jelena Jankovic rolled to a surprisingly easy 6-0, 6-1 win Thursday over Venus Williams and prevented an all-Williams semifinal at the Italian Open.

Williams struggled with her serve and never really threatened on a cool evening at the Foro Italico.

Top-ranked Serena is up next for Jankovic.

"When you play against a Williams you can't relax at all, you just have to go out there and it give it your best," the Serb said.

Serena had been out with a left knee injury since winning the Australian Open in January.

"My knee is feeling good so far," she said. "I can't believe I'm still in the tournament - it's weird."

Serena leads 4:3 in previous meeting with Jelena, but they never played a match on clay against each other. Jelena will be the favourite again.

Jelena and Serena are scheduled to play first match tomorrow, 4pm local time.
