Sharapova to play in Toronto semifinals
Late last night, Maria Sharapova became the fourth Rogers Cup semifinalist when she defeated Agnieszka Radwanska 6-2, 7-6. Sharapova had a rather easy first set. Then Radwanska went up a break in the second set, but was broken back. She then broke again to go up 5-2. Sharapova brought the score to 5-all, broke Radwanska, but then was broken back. She prevailed, however, in the tiebreak, and will play countrywoman Alisa Kleybanova in the semifinals.
