Angelique kerber needed an hour and twenty-three minutes to see off the defending champion Heather Watson in straight sets and book her spot into the semifinals of the Abierto BNP Seguros, 6-4, 6-4.
"I think it was a good match, especially at the end," Kerber assessed in her post-match press conference.
"We both struggled a little bit but I'm happy to be in the semis right now.
"I tried to play my game aggressive, and it's always tough to play against Heather, especially because she was the defending champion here. But I'm happy I'm through it."
