Bulgarian qualifier Tsvetana Pironkova crushed top seed Vera Zvonareva 6-0 6-2 in the second round of the Kremlin Cup, eliminating the Russian from the season-ending tournament in Doha.

Defeat for the world number seven enabled Serbia's Jelena Jankovic to clinch the last remaining spot in next week's WTA championships regardless of her own progress in Moscow.

Last year's Kremlin Cup champion Jankovic takes on Czech Lucie Safarova in second-round action later on Thursday.

Zvonareva's loss continued the cull of seeds at the annual indoor tournament, celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.

For world number 126 Pironkova it was only her fourth win of the year on the main tour and the first since April.

The 22-year-old will now contest her first quarter-final of the season, where she will meet Ukraine's Alona Bondarenko who knocked out Russia's fifth seed Nadia Petrova on Wednesday.

Jankovic stayed on course to defend her Kremlin Cup title with a 7-6 6-3 victory over Czech Lucie Safarova to reach the quarter-finals where she will meet unseeded Russian Alisa Kleybanova.

Zvonareva's loss continued the cull of seeds at the annual indoor tournament, celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.
