CHENNAI, India (AP)—Stanislas Wawrinka earned his 300th win on the ATP tour on Friday as he breezed past Slovenian Aljaz Bedene 6-2, 6-1 to reach the semifinals of the Chennai Open.

Wawrinka became only the fourth Swiss player to reach the milestone after Roger Federer (923), Marc Rosset (433) and Jakob Hlasek (432).

The top-seeded Wawrinka needed little more than an hour to beat Bedene, who had ousted the Swiss player in the quarterfinals here last year in their only previous meeting on the tour.

Wawrinka will next play fifth-seeded Vasek Pospisil of Canada, who beat local favorite Yuki Bhambria 6-3, 6-3.

Edouard Roger-Vasselin of France and Marcel Granollers of Spain also reached the semifinals.
