WTA Hobart: Mertens and Tsurenko Into Semis

Second seed Elise Mertens from Belgium went through to tomorrow’s semi finals courtesy of a walkover against Romania’s Monica Niculescu. She will face British qualifier Heather Watson who beat Croatia’s Donna Vekic in a rather one-sided straight sets defeat - including a first set bagel - 6-0, 6-4.

On the other side of the draw Ukrainian number five seed Lesia Tsurenko beat Belarus’ Aryna Sabalenka in another rather unbalanced affair 6-1, 6-1. In the late match, Romania’s Mihaela Buzarnescu beat USA’s Alison Riske in another straight sets victory - although Riske missed chances in the first set tie-break - 7-6, 6-1.
