MASON --- Serena Williams
advanced to the semifinals of a
tournament she has never won.
Given her history in Cincinnati,
she ll avoid thinking about the
Williams needed only 58 minutes
to beat Jelena Jankovic 6-1, 6-3 yes-
terday in the Western & Southern
Open, a dominating performance
that left her feeling good about her
chances the rest of the way. One
caveat: She s felt this way before and
"Sure, I d love to win here,"
Williams said. "But at the same time,
I don t want to put that pressure on
myself. I m trying to stay pressure-
She advanced a day after Novak
Djokovic was upset in straight sets
by Tommy Robredo, ending his quest
for the only Masters title that has
eluded him. Djokovic wanted to win
the title this week and become the
first player to take all nine Masters
Instead, it s Williams who has the
chance to go for an elusive title. She
lost in the final last year to Victoria
Azarenka, dropping a third-set
tiebreaker. She has reached the semi-
finals only one other time (2006).
Williams overall performance yes-
terday was one of the best of her
six Cincinnati appearances.
The eighth-seeded Jankovic never
pressured her. Jankovic didn t serve
an ace and hit only five winners.
Williams will face Caroline Woz-
niacki, who beat Agnieszka Rad-
wanska 6-4, 7-6 (5) to reach the
semifinals in Cincinnati for the first
time in seven tries.
Wozniacki made her WTA debut
as a 15-year-old wild card in Cincin-
nati in 2005. She thinks about that
moment whenever she returns,
though it hasn t helped her very
much on the court.
Radwanska won her 14th career
singles title in Montreal on Sunday
and had beaten Wozniacki the last
three times they played, all on hard
In the men s bracket, Julien Ben-
neteau upset Australian Open cham-
pion Stan Wawrinka 1-6, 6-1, 6-2.
The third-seeded Wawrinka needed
only 20 minutes to win the first set,
then unraveled with unforced errors.
He had 18 in the third set alone,
while Benneteau had just five.
Benneteau reached the semifinals
in Cincinnati for the first time by
taking advantage of Wawrinka s
Sixth-seeded David Ferrer
knocked off Robredo 6-4, 3-6, 6-
3, reaching the semifinals for the
first time in 11 appearances in
Cincinnati. Fifth-seeded Milos
Raonic beat 15th-seeded Fabio Fogni-
ni 6-1, 6-0 in 57 minutes.
ZURICH --- Suddenly, Europe again has a star sprinter
who can compete with the best of the Americans
Her name is Dafne Schippers. The 22-year-old is
from the Netherlands and on a cold, wet and windy
Friday night she ran the fastest 200 metres this year
by far to clinch a sprint double at the European Cham-
The thing is --- she is a top heptathlete with world
championship bronze to show for it, now trying out
a summer of sprinting because a training camp in
Florida showed she had amazing speed this year.
Schippers blew away all opposition once she hit the
home straight and won in 22.03 seconds running into
a slight headwind and on a wet Letzigrund track.
Britain s Jodie Williams took silver ahead of France s
Schippers put up one finger in the air as she crossed
the line before clenching both fists in celebration.
Headstrong right up to the medal podium when she
finally broke down with tears hearing the Wilhelmus
anthem. "Two gold medals, it feels so good," she said.
In the 1,500, Sifan Hassan, a transferee from Ethiopia,
added a second gold on the night for the Dutch, sweep-
ing past Sweden s Abeba Aregawi in the finishing
straight. Hassan also goes for a double, competing in
the 5,000 today.
In the men s 400, Martyn Rooney led a British one-
two across the line with teenager Matthew Hudson-
Smith taking silver. It was another double in the 800,
a Polish one at that, where Adam Kszczot won ahead
of Artur Kuciapski. And Adam Gemili won the men s
200 for a second British gold.
France also got two gold --- and a world record.
Yohann Diniz fought through stomach pains throughout
the race and still set a world record in the 50-kilometre
walk to win the European title for a third time.
With Schippers sprinting, the heptathlon was wide
open, and Antoinette Nana Djimou profited to take
gold ahead of Dutch backup Nadine Broersen.
The biggest cheer of the night was for Kariem Hus-
sein, who gave the host nation its first gold of the com-
petition by winning the 400 hurdles. (AP)
