Bulgarian qualifier Tsvetana Pironkova beat top-seeded Vera Zvonareva of Russia 6-0, 6-2 Thursday in the second round of the Kremlin Cup, sending Jelena Jankovic to next week's season-ending WTA Championships.

Jankovic, who is five points ahead of Zvonareva, will fill the final berth at the tournament in Doha, Qatar, regardless of how she does at the Kremlin Cup.

Serena and Venus Williams, Dinara Safina, Svetlana Kuznetsova, Elena Dementieva, Caroline Wozniacki and Victoria Azarenka have already qualified for the championships and are skipping the event in Moscow. Zvonareva and Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland will go to Doha as alternates.
