Cornet, Bouchard reach Strasbourg semifinals

Third-seeded Alize Cornet and Canadian teenager Eugenie Bouchard won in straight sets Thursday to reach the semifinals of the Strasbourg International.
A runner-up last year, Cornet beat Chanelle Scheepers of South Africa 6-3, 6-1, while Bouchard move into the semifinals of a tournament for the first time by defeating Anna Tatishvili of Georgia 6-3, 6-2.
Rain interrupted play at 5-1 in the second set of Cornet's match. But the Frenchwoman picked up where she left off, firing a backhand pass to clinch the victory and next play Bouchard.
Bouchard, who entered the top 100 last month, broke Tatishvili twice in each set.
The Strasbourg International is a warm-up tournament for the French Open, which starts Sunday.
