Defending champion Serena Williams
is out at the Australian Open after a 6-3, 6-4 quarterfinal loss to
third-ranked Jelena Jankovic.
Williams was ranked Number-81 when she won here last year for
her eighth Grand Slam title. But she struggled with her serve and
made 36 unforced errors against Jankovic.
Williams had not dropped a set in her four previous matches.
Jankovic dropped her first service game of the match but rallied to
win the next four games to take control.
