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.
