GUANGZHOU, China, Sept. 17 (UPI) -- No. 1-seeded Jarmila Groth dropped just two games Friday en route to a semifinals berth at the Guangzhou International Women's open tennis tournament in China.
Groth swept by Maria Elena Camerin 6-0, 6-2 in 70 minutes. Groth dropped serve once but also broke Camerin's serve six times and won 63 percent of the points in the match.
She'll face Edina Gallovits in Saturday's semifinals. Gallovits advanced with a tight 3-6, 6-2, 6-4 decision over local favorite Han Xinyun, a wild-card entrant. Gallovits won more points than Han (42-41) off Han's serve but had to overcome five service breaks.
Alla Kudryavtseva took 60 percent of the points in a 6-3, 6-1 win over Ksenia Pervak. She had five service breaks and lost only seven points on serve -- all in the same game -- in the second set.
Zhang Shuai, the final Chinese player left in the draw, toughed out a 6-4, 1-6, 6-4 win over Sania Mirza in claiming the fourth semifinal berth.
Saturday's semifinals winners will meet Sunday for the tournament title, with a first-place check for $37,000 at stake.
