A former world number one stands in the way of qualifier Marina Erakovic reaching the third round at Wimbledon overnight.

Erakovic plays Serbian Jelena Jankovic, who won their only previous encounter at the 2008 French Open.

She says Jankovic is a solid player who likes to dictate with her backhand, but it's not as easy for her on the grass.
