Sara Errani of Italy beat second-seeded Julia Goerges of Germany 6-2, 6-3 on Friday to reach the Barcelona Open semifinals.

The seventh-seeded Errani took advantage of Goerges' erratic serve to break five times on the outdoor clay. The Italian will face Carla Suarez Navarro, who beat Simona Halep of Romania 6-4, 6-1.

Suarez Navarro managed to break Halep eight times in nine service games and rallied from a 3-1 first-set deficit to become the only Spanish player to reach the semifinals.

Olga Govortsova of Belarus played Sorana Cirstea of Romania and Slovakia's Dominika Cibulkova faced Ukraine's Yuliya Beygelzimer in Friday's other quarterfinal matchups.
