Pliskova through to the semis

Karolina Pliskova continued her fine start to 2017 as she beat Garbine Muguruza to reach the semi-finals of the BNP Paribas Open.

The world number three was too strong for her Spanish opponent and secured a 7-6 7-6 victory.

Pliskova has enjoyed a great start to the season, winning two titles already, but was pushed all the way in her quarter-final match.

Both players struggled with their serves but Pliskova dominated the first-set tie-break.

She then served for the match on two occasions in the second set but Muguruza dug deep to force the match into another tie-break.

Pliskova eventually held on and claimed the victory on her third match point and the 24-year-old will now take on Svetlana Kuznetsova.

The Russian beat Anastasia Pavlyuchenko 6-3 6-2 to reach the final four at Indian Wells for the first time since 2008.
