World number 4 Jelena Jankovic successfully overcame Alicia Molik to advance to the second round of the French Open.

Until this first round match in Paris Alicia Molik was leading 4:2 in previous encounters with Jelena. Alicia was never a fantastic clay-court player and due to her low ranking Jelena was the favorite in this match. In the first set it was all about Jelena as she served well, returned well and moved fantastically. Jelena was dictating points and left no chance for Molik. Jelena won the first set decisively- 6:0.

In the second set Jelena seemed less concentrated, but still she managed to break Molik's great serve and lead 3:2. At 4:2 for Jelena, Molik served a fantastic game closing it out with an ace. At 5:4 Jelena served for the match wining the game to-love. After just 62 minutes Jelena won 6:0, 6:4 and set up a clash with Kaia Kanepi from Estonia. Kaia Kanepi leads 1:0 in encounters with Jelena. Their played their one and only match this year in Dubai, where Jelena was 3rd seed and lost in straight sets.

After the match Jelena said: "I think I played well overall. First matches are always tough, and especially after waiting all day, I had get myself going and have the focus from the start and Alicia has a good serve. So I had to really concentrate on that to get a good return and start dictating the points. So overall, I'm happy with the first set how I played. Second set, I had some ups and downs, but overall was a good first round match for me."

Jelena also debuted her new dress made by ANTA. The dress is yellow, very bright and sexy. At the bottom of it, it has several layers, which look like a lace. Check out Jelena's dress in off-court gallery.
