Here is the semifinal draw for Acapulco:
Venus Williams vs. Edina Gallovits
Carla Suarez Navarro vs. Polona Hercog
Williams had to work for almost two hours and twenty minutes to obtain her 4-6, 6-3, 7-5 score against Laura Pos Tio, who is making somewhat of a statement in her return to the tour. Pous Tio, in fact, was up 5-1 in the third set. She failed to hold when she served for the match at 5-3, and was finally broken in a very long game at 5-all.
Agnes Szavay had to retire during her quarterfinal match against Hercog because of a left adductor strain.
