Semifinals set in Beijing

Top seed Jelena Jankovic will play Vera Zvonareva in tomorrow's China Open semifinals. Also coming out of the quarterfinals is Svetlana Kuznetsova, who will play Zheng Jie. Zheng is no longer to be a considered a "threat on grass," but rather, a threat on every surface but clay...and give her time.

Kuznetsova has yet to win a tournament this year, but will most likely get quite a fight from Zheng, who is playing in her home country, and who is just good at putting up quite a fight.

Jankovic def. Hantuchova, 7-5, 6-1
Zvonareva def. Medina Garrigues, 6-0, 6-1
Kuznetsova def. Cibulkova, 6-2, 6-4
Zheng def. Ivanovic, 7-6, 2-6, 6-4

Ivanovic was the 2nd seed.
