Fourth-seeded Victoria Azarenka beat Tamira Paszek 6-3, 6-1 on Tuesday at Wimbledon to reach the semi-finals at a Grand Slam tournament for the first time.
The match began on Court 1 but play was suspended after one game because of the damp conditions. They completed the match under the roof on Centre Court.
Azarenka, the highest-ranked player left in the quarter-finals, raced into a 5-1 lead in the first set and broke for a third time for the set when the unseeded Paszek netted a forehand.
The Belarussian broke serve twice more to come through the second set and set up a semifinal against eighth-seeded Petra Kvitova.
