Giorgi cruises into semi-finals, teenager McNally awaits
Camila Giorgi cruised into the last four at the Citi Open, where no seeds made the semi-finals.
Camila Giorgi charged into the Citi Open semi-finals as Hsieh Su-wei became the final seed to fall on Friday.
Giorgi has put together a fine run in Washington and the Italian brushed past Zarina Diyas 6-3 6-2 in their quarter-final at the WTA International event.
The 27-year-old is into her first semi-final of the year after needing just 72 minutes to dispose of Diyas.
Awaiting Giorgi in the last four is American wildcard Caty McNally, who upset fourth seed Hsieh.
