Jelena Jankovic, 4th seed, didn't manage to advance to her first Roland Garros Finale despite being the highest seeded player in the semifinals. Jelena lost to Aussie Samantha Stosur in straight sets, 6:1, 6:3.

The French Open 2010 will have an unecspected finale after Dementieva retired in the first semifinal, and after Jelena won only 3 games against the 7th seeded Sam Stosur.


Samantha was luckier with the coin so she decided to serve first. Sam had problems in the opening game, but managed to win it. Jelena also held serve and leveled the score to 1:1. After it, it was all about the Australian. Jelena moved slow on the court and missed lots of chances and was punished by losing the set 6:1.

In the second set Jelena started wonderfully. Jelena held serve, then she broke opponent's serve and had 40:15 in the third game, trying to go 3:0 up. Jelena made some wrong choices and handed a game to Samantha. After it  Jelena let to be broken again and after Sam held her serve, went 4:2 up. Jelena was unable to find court with her forehand while her backhand was solid. Sam had some unbelievable shots, just along the lines and closed the match out after under one hour of play.

The Iron Lady is the nickname given to JJ a couple of seasons ago, but this time the Iron Lady melted like an ice cube in front of Sam's strength and marvelous play.

Despite losing this match, Jelena showed that she regrouped and is ready to have another fantastic season, and also after improving her serve JJ showed a hope to pass the 4th round at Wimbledon for the 1st time.
