Diyas springs upset to reach semis in Japan

Diyas springs upset to reach semis in Japan”

Defending champion McHale faced surprisingly little resistance from the third seed before Zarina Diyas came from a set down to beat fellow Kazakh Yulia Putintseva 4-6, 6-1, 6-3 in the day's second quarter-final.

Japanese qualifier Miyu Kato breezed into the semifinals as well with a 6-1, 6-3 triumph over Serbia's Aleksandra Krunic. Diyas, who underwent wrist surgery a year ago, would not be beaten, however, and regained her composure to force her way back into the match at the start of the third set.

McHale converted on five of six break point chances and won 71 percent of the points on her serve to win the straight-sets match in one hour and six minutes.

Kato will next face Croatia's Jana Fett, who held her nerve to see off Wang Qiang of China 6-3 4-6 6-3.
