Home favourite Andrea Petkovic eased into the semi-finals of the Nurnberger Gastein Ladies after defeating Stefanie Voegele of Switzerland 6-3 6-2.

The fourth-seeded German, who won this event back in 2009, broke her opponent no fewer than eight times on her way to a one-sided victory.

She needed less than an hour of court time to book her place in the last four, although it actually took a good deal longer than that as the match was interrupted by rain for three and a half hours with the score at 1-1 in the second set.

Petkovic, who reached the semi-finals at the French Open earlier this season, will now face America’s Grace Min on Saturday.

The 20-year-old from Atlanta progressed to her first WTA semi-final after a comprehensive 6-2 6-1 victory over Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic.
