Second-seeded Vera Zvonareva overcame a shaky start to beat Bojana Jovanovski of Serbia 2-6, 6-3, 6-1 on Thursday and advance to the third round of the Australian Open.

Zvonareva started off against Jovanovski like she had no hope of getting that far here.

A series of unforced errors gave her Serbian opponent an easy first set win before Zvonareva kicked into gear in the second, then got an early break to win the deciding set in 30 minutes.
