Russian sports star Anastasia Myskina entered semifinals WTA Tour's Sunfeast Open

Top-seeded Anastasia Myskina of Russia and Croatia's seventh-seeded Karolina Sprem on Friday entered the semifinals the WTA Tour's US$170,000 (Ђ140,000) Sunfeast Open.

Myskina defeated India's Shikha Uberoi 6-4, 6-2, while Sprem raced to a 6-3, 6-1 victory in the quarterfinal against Hungary's Melinda Czink.

Myskina's opponent in Saturday's semifinal will be unseeded Kaia Kanepi of Estonia, who overcame the higher-ranked Sybille Bammer of Austria 7-5, 6-3.

Kanepi, ranked 172nd in the world, made her first entry into the semifinals of a WTA Tour event by outplaying the 97th-ranked Bammer.

"I'm delighted after managing to reach the semifinal of a WTA tournament for the first time," said Kanepi. "It did not bother me before the match that I was playing a player ranked higher than me."

An avid reader of mine, he 'had something urgent to tell me', after finding out that our paths were going to be crossing in this destroyed and hopelessly polluted Indonesian capital.
