    snow Tennis: Jankovic, Roddick into China Open finals

    BEIJING: Andy Roddick was forced to dig deep to beat his unfancied opponent in his China Open semi-final Saturday as women's top seed Jelena Jankovic continued her march towards the title.

    The big-serving American battled to a 6-2, 6-7 (4-7), 6-1 win against 137-ranked Bjorn Phau while Jankovic staved off a spirited fight back from Vera Zvonareva on the women's side.

    Germany's Phau ranked 129 places below Roddick came into this tournament without a single win on the ATP tour this season but frustrated the second seed with a battling performance.

    Roddick hurled his racket to the ground in frustration after losing the second set tie-break but broke Phau's serve three times in the decider.

    In the final, Roddick will meet Israel's Dudi Sela, who reached his first ATP final with a 6-3, 6-3 win over seventh seed and Wimbledon semi-finalist Rainer Schuettler.

    Sela, who earlier dumped world number five David Ferrer and sixth seed Tommy Robredo from the Beijing tournament, was quickly into his stride, breaking the error-prone Schuettler three times in the opening set.

    The 23-year-old kept up his intensity in the second set, forcing what proved to be a decisive break in the sixth game.

    In the women's draw, Jankovic, last year's losing finalist here, beat Zvonareva 6-4, 2-6, 6-4. The Serbian world number two took the first set against Zvonareva but powerful hitting from the Russian brought her level.

    The players swapped breaks at the beginning of the deciding set but Jankovic forced a further break and sealed the match, which lasted two hours 22 minutes.
