Rezai makes it to Dallas semifinals

It feels odd to make a big deal out of Aravane Rezai's run to the semifinals in Dallas, but she has had such a long and terrible slump that her success at the Texas Tennis Open is a big deal. Rezai, who had to qualify to get into the main draw, defeated Elena Baltacha 6-2, 6-2 today. She'll play qualifier Angelique Kerber in the semifinals; Kerber defeated Johanna Larsson 6-0, 6-1 in the quarterfinals.

In the other semifinal, Irina-Camelia Begu will play Sabine Lisicki; they are seeded 8th and 5th, respectively.
