AUCKLAND, New Zealand, Jan. 15 (UPI) -- Top-seeded Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina topped Serbia's Viktor Troicki 6-3, 6-2 Thursday, moving on to the semifinals of the Heineken Open in New Zealand.

Del Potro next plays Swede Robin Soderling, who beat American qualifier John Isner, 6-4, 6-4. Soderling had 11 aces during the match.

Second-seeded David Ferrer and American Sam Querrey, the No. 6 seed, will clash in the other semifinal.

Ferrer advanced when his quarterfinal opponent, Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany, pulled out because of a shoulder injury.

Querrey was a 6-3, 6-2 winner over Nicolas Almagro of Spain, the No. 4 seed.
