Memphis, TN (Sports Network) - Seeded Americans Lisa Raymond and Alexandra Stevenson were among Thursday's quarterfinal winners at the $170,000 Kroger St. Jude tennis tournament.

The second-seeded Raymond got past fellow American Jill Craybas, 6-4, 6-4, while the fourth-seeded Stevenson overcame Croatian Silvija Talaja, 6-1, 4-6, 6-2.

Thursday's other quarterfinal winners were No. 3 seed Ai Sugiyama of Japan and unseeded Russian Alina Jidkova. Sugiyama shut down fifth-seeded Italian Adriana Serra-Zanetti, 6-0, 6-4, while Jidkova dismissed Canadian Jana Nejedly, 7-6 (7-5), 6-2, at the Racquet Club of Memphis.

Friday's semis will pit Raymond against Sugiyama and Stevenson versus Jidkova.

All four semifinalists are seeking their first title of the year. Stevenson and Jidkova have never titled on the WTA circuit.

This week's indoor-hardcourt winner will claim $27,000.
