In tennis, two Czechs are through to the semi-finals of the WTA tournament in Acapulco. The country’s number one women’s tennis player, Iveta Benešová, beat France’s Mathilde Johansson in straight sets on Friday and now goes on to meet the tournament’s number two seed, Flavia Penetta, in the semi-finals. The Czech Republic’s Barbora Záhlavová Strycová, meanwhile, is set to meet tournament favourite Venus Williams after beating Maret Ani 4:6, 7:5, 6:1. Fellow Czech Petra Cetkovská is out of the tournament, however, after losing to Italy’s Pennetta at the quarter-final stage.
