Wickmayer into US Open semi-finals

9:38 am on 10 September 2009

There are two Belgian players into the semi-finals of the women's singles at the US tennis Open with Yanina Wickmayer beating another unseeded player Kataryna Bondarenko of the Ukraine in straight sets in their quarter-final.

A day after Kim Clijsters booked a last-four date with Serena Williams, Wickmayer sparked further celebrations in the European country when she made it through to her first major semi.

The Belgian's triumph guaranteed an all-teen semi-final as she will either face 17-year-old American darling Melanie Oudin or 19-year-old Dane Caroline Wozniacki... they meet later .
