Anastasia Myskina of Russia and Anna-Lena Groenefeld of Germany advanced to the semifinals of the Istanbul Cup on Thursday. The second-seeded Groenefeld defeated Karolina Sprem of Croatia 6-4, 6-4. Top-seeded Myskina beat sixth-seeded Catalina Castano of Colombia 6-4, 7-6 (3). Myskina said she found Castano's style difficult to respond to. "She threw balls that were high and low. I could not serve the way I wanted to," Myskina said. Groenefeld said she was happy with her game. "I am happy with the way I played," Groenefeld said. "I had a problem with my arm but served really well against Sprem. I tried to play aggressively". Myskina will face ninth-seeded Michaella Krajicek of the Netherlands, who beat Anastasiya Yakimova of Belarus 6-1, 6-0. (AP)
