Ivanovic, the 2008 French Open champion, was a break down at 2-1 in the first set when the blackout occurred. In the second set, she reeled off five straight games to win 6-1.
Ivanovic blew a 3-2 lead in the third but broke in 11th game. She will play fifth-seeded Roberta Vinci, who beat Zhang Shuai 7-5, 6-1.
"It was tough, especially mentally, in the end," Ivanovic said. "I was happy to pull off that victory."
Kirilenko led 6-1, 5-2 and served for the match at 5-4, 40-0. She built a 3-1 lead in the third set and again failed to capitalize.
"I wasn't in the match at all until I was down 3-0 in the second set," Voskoboeva said. "But I started to play better. When you are down match point at 4-5, 0-40, you need luck as well. But I didn't think about that. I just played point by point."
