STUTTGART, Germany (AP) Qualifier Laura Siegemund upset top-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska 6-4, 6-2 on Saturday to set up an all-German Porsche Grand Prix final with defending champion Angelique Kerber.
The 71st-ranked Siegemund caused her biggest upset yet at the indoor clay-court tournament by defeating the second-ranked Radwanska in 1 hour, 23 minutes. She had already seen off the fourth-seeded Simona Halep and sixth-seeded Roberta Vinci to reach her first semifinal.
Siegemund converted five of her 13 break opportunities to make Sunday’s final in her hometown.
Kerber earlier defeated Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic 6-4, 4-6, 6-2 to reach her second successive final.
Second-seeded Kerber saved 10 of the 13 break points she faced and converted five of her 10 opportunities to beat the fifth-seeded Czech on her first match point.
TOKYO — Wimbledon champion Garbine Muguruza advanced to the semifinals of the Pan Pacific Open by beating Caroline Garcia 6-2, 6-4 Friday.
A rare double-fault by the top-seeded Muguruza allowed Garcia to pull even at 3-3 in the second set, but the Spaniard broke back in the next game.
Playing in her first tournament since earning the No. 1 ranking, Muguruza will next face Caroline Wozniacki. The former top-ranked Dane advanced when Dominika Cibulkova was forced to retire with a right thigh injury while trailing 3-6, 7-6 (5), 3-1.
Also, Angelique Kerber upset second-seeded Karolina Pliskova 7-6 (5), 7-5. The seventh-seeded Kerber took advantage of several unforced errors by the Czech player and won with a powerful cross-court shot on her fifth match point.
Kerber will face Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in the semifinals. The Russian beat Barbora Strycova 5-7, 6-3, 6-1.
METZ, France — French player Benoit Paire came out on top of a tight battle with David Goffin to reach the semifinals of the Moselle Open on Friday after saving one match point.
Paire edged the 2014 champion 7-6 (3), 5-7, 7-6 (7) after nearly 2 1/2 hours at the indoor tournament.
Goffin led 4-2 in the decider and failed to convert a match point at 6-5 in the tiebreaker.
Paire will next be up against Nikoloz Basilashvili of Georgia.
The other semifinal will pit Mischa Zverev against qualifier Peter Gojowczyk.
The fifth-seeded Zverev defeated lucky loser Kenny de Schepper 7-5, 7-6 (4) while the 95th-ranked Gojowczyk needed less than one hour to beat Marius Copil 6-2, 6-4.
