PARIS (AP) - Maria Sharapova lost the first six games, then won the last four to reach the French Open semifinals.

The defending champion overcame a miserable start in the quarterfinals Wednesday to beat Jelena Jankovic, 0-6, 6-4, 6-3.

It was the first victory of Sharapova's career after losing an opening set 6-0. Her opponent Friday will be two-time Australian Open champion Victoria Azarenka, who reached her first Roland Garros semifinal by beating Maria Kirilenko 7-6 (3), 6-2.

Sharapova won her first French Open title a year ago to complete a career Grand Slam. She's 42-9 at the French Open, best among active women.
