Rain disrupts play on Day 5

Text by News Wires

Latest update : 2010-05-27

Play is once more under way at the French Open after multiple rain delays. On Court Philippe Chatrier, Serbian fourth seed Jelena Jankovic battled her way to the third round but home favourite Gael Monfils crashed out in five sets.

REUTERS - Serbian Jelena Jankovic ran into a spot of bother as she reached the third round of the French Open with a 6-2 3-6 6-4 win over Estonia's Kaia Kanepi on a soggy day at Roland Garros Thursday.

The fourth seed, twice a semi-finalist at Roland Garros, breezed through the first set in a buttercup yellow dress but she withered in the second set as Kanepi levelled the match.

Rain returned early in the third set, causing a 55-minutedelay, but Jankovic managed to wrap up the win after two hours and four minutes when Kanepi sent a forehand long just before the tarpaulins were dragged back on to centre court.

Jankovic will next face either Ukrainian 27th seed Alona Bondarenko or Slovakia's Magdalena Rybarikova.
