BOGOTA, Feb. 21 (UPI) -- No. 1 seed Jelena Jankovic coasted into the quarterfinals of the Copa Claro Colsanitas Thursday while Francesca Schiavone fell in her second-round match.

Alexandra Cadantu will face Jankovic in the quarterfinals after rallying past Tereza Mrdeza 4-6, 6-3, 6-4.

Schiavone's match against Paula Ormaechea was suspended on Wednesday because of rain, and when they resumed Thursday it was Ormaechea who prevailed 2-6, 6-3, 7-6 (7-3).
