Japanese veteran Kimiko Date-Krumm continued her run at the Monterrey Open as she advanced to the semi-finals with victory over Monica Puig.

The 43-year-old won the first set but her Puerto Rican opponent claimed the second on a tie break before Date-Krumm closed out a 6-4 6-7 (7/2) 6-4 win.

She will next face Serbian Jovana Jaksic who was a 6-3 6-0 winner over American qualifier Julia Boserup.

Third seed Caroline Wozniacki will be her opponent in the semis after the Dane produced a battling performance to beat Karolina Pliskova 6-7 (7/3) 6-3 6-3.
