Top seed Kim Clijsters downed Italy's Francesca Schiavone 6-4, 7-5 to advance to the semifinals of the Fortis Championships on Friday. The Belgian is seeking her fifth title in Luxembourg, and will now meet fourth-seeded Nathalie Dechy of France, who beat fifth-seeded Daniela Hantuchova of Slovakia 6-1, 6-4 in their quarterfinal. With top-ranked Maria Sharapova and No. 2 Lindsay Davenport not playing this week due to injuries, Clijsters could reclaim the No. 1 spot on the WTA Tour. (AP)
