Williams, Capriati reach semifinals at German Open
May 7, 2004

BERLIN (Ticker) - Venus Williams had to dig deep to keep her winning streak alive Friday in the quarterfinals of the Ladies German Open.

The third-seeded Williams won her 14th straight match, a 7-6 (7-5), 5-7, 6-2 triumph over No. 11 Paola Suarez of Argentina.

Williams has won titles in Charleston and Warsaw in her last two tournaments and also won a pair of matches in the Federation Cup last month.

Croatian Karolina Sprem will face Williams after dispatching Colombian Fabiola Zuluaga, 6-3, 6-2. Sprem, who reached the quarterfinals after top seed Kim Clijsters was forced to withdraw with left wrist tendinitis, moved into her third semifinal of the season.

No. 2 Amelie Mauresmo of France, the 2001 German Open champion, battled past No. 10 Svetlana Kuznetsova, 6-7 (5-7), 6-3, 6-1. Mauresmo is seeking her first title of the year.

Sixth-seeded American Jennifer Capriati beat No. 4 Anastasia Myskina, 6-3, 6-2, for her first victory over a top-10 player this year. Capriati is playing in only her fifth event this season due to injuries. Mauresmo and Capriati will square off in Saturday's semifinal. First prize at this Tier I French Open tuneup is $189,000.
