Henin-Hardenne defeats 10th seeded Jelena Jankovic

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- Former Family Circle Cup champion Justine Henin-Hardenne put her health to the test Monday and passed when she upset 10th-seeded Jelena Jankovic.

Henin-Hardenne is playing in just her second event this season after a knee fracture and virus kept her off the court for seven months. She beat Jankovic 5-7, 6-4, 6-3 in the opening round.

The problems started at last year's tournament, from which Henin-Hardenne withdrew without playing a match because she had contracted a virus similar to chickenpox and mononucleosis.

Henin-Hardenne blew a 4-1 lead in the first set of Monday's two-hour match, but rallied back with the same graceful backhand volley that befuddled opponents when she won the title here in 2003.

In another upset Klara Koukalova beat No. 16 Elena Likhovtseva 6-3, 6-4.

Two seeded players won. No. 16 Fabiola Zuluaga beat Severine Beltrame in 6-3, 6-4, and No. 11 Ai Sugiyama ousted qualifier Yuliana Fedak 6-3, 4-6, 6-4.
