NEW HAVEN, Conn., Aug. 22 (UPI) -- Petra Kvitova and Caroline Wozniacki, the event's third and fourth seeds, both reached the semifinals Thursday at the New Haven Open.

Kvitova dispatched Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 2-6, 6-2, 7-5 to create a semifinal meeting with Klara Zakopalova. Wozniacki defeated Sloane Stephens 7-6 (8-6) 6-2 and will meet Simona Halep in the semifinals.

Zakopalova rallied past Elena Vesnina in the quarterfinals 4-6, 6-0, 6-4 and Halep won over Ekaterina Makarova 6-1, 7-6 (8-6).
