This was undoubtedly the best opportunity that world number 1 Jelena Jankovic has had to silence her critics. Jankovic has been criticized because of the fact that she has yet to win a grand slam tournamen and yet, she is ranked number 1 in the world. Serena Williams, for example, was among those who were not convinved that Jankovic was the best player in the world.

Jankovic, however, was unable to seize the opportunity, as she was trounced by 16th seed Marion Bartoli 6-1,6-4. This is a big win for Bartoli and is, by far, her best showing at the first major of the season. For Jankovic, however, this is a definite setback, as she surely had high hopes being that she is fitter than she has ever been.

Bartoli will next face the winner of the Nadia Petrova-Vera Zvonareva match, which will be played later today.
