11:04 am on 20 August 2011

China's Peng Shuai pulled out of the Cincinnati Tennis Open shortly before she was due to face Serbia's Jelena Jankovic in their quarter-final match.

Peng withdrew because of a left hip injury, giving Jankovic a walkover into tomorrow's semi-final against German Andrea Petkovic.

The other semi-final is an all-Russian affair between Maria Sharapova and Vera Zvonareva.
