Tesni Evans is on course to reach her first final of the year after reaching the semi-finals of the Women’s Cleveland Classic in Ohio.
The 26-year-old recovered from losing the first game against Mayar Hany to come through in four games against the Egyptian.
No 2 seed Evans won 8-11, 11-9, 11-8, 11-5 in 50 minutes at the Cleveland Racquet Club in the $51,250 tournament.
The Rhyl-based player faces Luton’s Canada-based Victoria Lust in the semi-final on Sunday.
Lust is ranked 15 in the world four places lower than Evans on the current list.
Egypt’s No 1 seed Nour El Tayeb faces England’s Alison Waters, seeded three, in the other semi-final.
Waters beat Evans in a five-set battle at the Tournament of Champions in New York last month.
Waters then lost to El Tayeb in the quarter-finals.
