Bouchard upsets Jankovic at Family Circle

By PETE IACOBELLIAP Sports Writer

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Eugenie Bouchard won five of the final six games for a 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 victory Friday over second-seeded Jelena Jankovic to reach the semifinals of the Family Circle Cup.

The 20-year-old Canadian played a strong opening set, but trailed Jankovic 2-1 in the decisive set. Then she won the next three games to take control and advance to the semifinal round for a second tournament this season and fifth time in her WTA career.

Jankovic reached the Family Circle semifinal in two of the past three years. As the highest-ranked player remaining in the field, she seemed a good bet for another.

Instead, the Serbian couldn't fight off the sixth-seeded Bouchard's late rally.
