UMAG, Croatia, July 19 (UPI) -- Defending champion Carlos Moya, the second seed from Spain, rallied past compatriot Fernando Vicente, the fifth seed, 3-6, 6-1, 6-0, on Friday to advance to the semifinals of the $381,000 Croatia Open.
The 1998 French Open champion, Moya won his eighth straight match, including a title in Bastad last week. Moya has lost just two sets during that span.
The 25-year-old Moya is trying to capture his third Croatia Open title, having won his first trophy in 1996.
In an all-Croatian quarterfinal matchup, wild card Zeljko Krajan upset fourth seed Ivan Ljubicic, 7-6 (7-2), 7-5. Krajan, 23, is looking to became the first home-grown champion in 12 years. Goran Prpic defeated Goran Ivansevic in the all-Croatian final in 1990.
