NUREMBERG, Germany (AP)—Top-seeded Jelena Jankovic cruised past sixth-seeded Lourdes Dominguez Lino 6-4, 6-0 Thursday to set up a semifinal against Andrea Petkovic in the inaugural WTA Nurnberger Versicherungscup.

Petkovic rallied from set down to beat eighth-seeded Annika Beck 4-6, 6-3, 7-5. Petkovic returned after a series of injuries and received a wild card into the tournament.
