Tennis - Two time former champion Jelena Jankovic continued her resurgence of form this season by pulling off a stunning upset win over world no.5 Li Na in the third round of the WTA Italian Open in Rome.

The former world no. 1, who won in Rome in 2007 and 2008, needed more than two and a half hours to defeat the former French Open champion Li Na 7-6. 7-5 to advance to the quarter finals where she will meet Romanian Simona Halep.

The second set itself lasted 90 minutes.

Li Na commented, "I felt like I wasn't playing so badly today, it was just a really long, tough match between me and JJ,. I was trying a lot of things out there on the court today. Sometimes it was working, sometimes it didn't - but I'm still happy I was trying those things. I still have some work to do. 

"We showed a pretty good match out there. Congratulations to her for the win today."

Halep scored an upset win over 13th seed Roberta Vinci 6-2, 6-4 to reach her biggest quarter final event yet.

Jankovic and Halep have split their two career meetings so far.
