Jelena Jankovic did not expend any unnecessary energy on a sweltering day at Wimbledon as she stifled Ukrainian Alona Bondarenko 6-0 6-3 to reach the fourth round on Friday.

While fans and officials were seen grabbing programmes and any scraps of paper to fan themselves on a sun-baked Court Two, Jankovic had no problem turning up the heat on Bondarenko who succumbed to her 11th defeat in 12 meetings with the Serb.

The fourth seed, who turned up on her day off at Wimbledon for a royal appointment with Queen Elizabeth on Thursday, will be hoping to produce another regal performance when she faces either Vera Zvonareva or Yanina Wickmayer on Monday.
