Doha, Qatar (SportsNetwork.com) - Second seed Agnieszka Radwanska eased into
the semifinals, while former world No. 1 Jelena Jankovic upended former
Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova in Friday's quarterfinal action at the
$2.44 million Qatar Open tennis event.
The former Wimbledon finalist Radwanska routed Belgian Yanina Wickmayer 6-2,
6-1, while the fifth-seeded former U.S. Open runner-up Jankovic subdued the
third-seeded Kvitova 6-1, 6-3 on the hardcourts at Khalifa International
"I've had easy scores until now, but it doesn't mean I've had easy matches,"
Radwanska said after pasting Wickmayer. "I played great tennis, especially
today, and Yanina was a tough opponent -- every time we play I have to really
push myself 100 percent to beat her. I think I just played really, really good
tennis out there tonight."
Jankovic's semifinal opponent on Saturday will be sixth-seeded German left-
hander Angelique Kerber, who drilled Thursday's big upset winner Petra
Cetkovska, 6-1, 6-0. The qualifier Cetkovska stunned top-seeded Australian
Open champ Li Na in the round of 16.
Also on Friday, seventh-seeded Romanian Simona Halep upended fourth-seeded
former French Open runner-up Sara Errani, of Italy, 6-2, 6-0. Halep's final-
four opponent will be Radwanska.
All four of Saturday's combatants are ranked inside the WTA's top 10.
