Jankovic to face Chang in Nanchang final

Former world number one Jelena Jankovic will be expected to win her first WTA title for two years when she faces Chang Kai-chen in Nanchang.

Jelena Jankovic was once again a class apart as she beat Han Xinyun in straight sets to set up a Jiangxi Open final against Chang Kai-chen.

Top seed Jankovic is the star attraction in her first appearance at the WTA 125 hard-court event in Nanchang and again lived up to her billing with a 6-1 6-2 victory on Saturday.

The former world number one has not dropped a set this week and Han was the latest player to be given a lesson by the impressive Serb, who was the only seeded player in the last four.

Jankovic, given a wildcard entry into the tournament, won half of the 10 break points which she earned and saved the one and only break point on her serve to move into the final.

Chang ensured there will be no home representative in the showpiece by fighting back to beat China's Lu Jia-Jing 3-6 7-6 (7-3) 7-6 (7-3).

Taiwanese world number 191 Chang racked up eight double faults, but was able to advance to her first final in three years at the expense of Li.

Jankovic will be a huge favourite to add to her tally of six WTA singles titles - and her first for five years - in Sunday's final.
