Top seed Bojana Jovanovski was given a scare by Russia's Galina Voskoboeva before claiming her place in the semi-finals of the Tashkent Open.

Seventh-seeded Voskoboeva raced through the first set in Uzbekistan and her dominance saw her clinch a convincing 6-1 lead.

But world No 58 Jovanovski regrouped and levelled the match after taking the second set 6-4 before taking the decider on a tie-break - the Serbian eventually advancing to the final four with a 1-6 6-4 7-6 (7-5) victory.

She will next take on Maria-Teresa Torro-Flor for a place in the final after the Spaniard took little time in overcoming third seed Yvonne Meusburger from Austria, winning 6-3 6-0 in just 51 minutes.

Olga Govortsova of Belarus will challenge Mandy Minella in the other semi-final after both players secured comfortable quarter-final victories.

Luxembourg's Minella beat Nastassja Burnett of Italy 7-6 (6-4) 7-5 to set up a meeting with Govortsova, who saw off fifth seed Alexandra Cadantu 6-3 6-2.
