LUXEMBOURG (AP)—Top-seeded Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark defeated Bojana Jovanovski of Serbia 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 Friday to reach the semifinals of the Luxembourg Open.

On a day full of three-setters, Stefanie Voegele of Switzerland beat second-seeded Sloane Stephens of the United States 6-3, 3-6, 6-2, and will face Annika Beck of Germany in Saturday's semifinals.
