GUANGZHOU, China (AP) - Defending champion Jelena Jankovic will have another shot at the title after defeating Ana Konjuh of Croatia 7-5, 7-6 (7) in the Guangzhou Open semifinals on Friday.

The second-seeded Serb has yet to drop a set this week.

Jankovic will take on Ukraine’s Lesia Tsurenko, who was into her first final since her maiden title in Istanbul in July last year.

Tsurenko defeated Anett Kontaveit of Estonia 6-4, 6-2 in the other semifinal.
