Frenchwoman Alize Cornet, the No 8 seed, advanced to the last four of the Tennis in the Land by winning against Chinese Shuai Zhang 6-4, 6-2 at Cleveland’s iconic Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica in Flats West Bank on Thursday evening.

Zhang, ranked No 35, defeated Czech Katerina Siniakova (6-2, 6-1) and Italian Martina Trevisan, the second seed (W/O) earlier in the tournament.
