Bacsinszky advances to Prague semifinals

Today in Prague, qualifier Timea Bacsinszky upset 4th seed Carla Suarez Navarro 6-4, 6-4 to advance to the semifinals of the ECM Prague Open. In the second round, Bacsinszky defeated Stefanie Voegele, and in the first round, she upset 6th seed Magdalena Rybarikova.

Bacsinszky, who is coached by Melanie Molitor, was the top qualifying seed. She has yet to drop a set in the tournament, though she may find her next job a bit harder: Bacsinszky plays top seed Francesca Schiavone in the next round.
