Wozniacki, Radwanska through to Eastbourne semifinals

EASTBOURNE, England (AP) -- Caroline Wozniacki reached the semifinals at Eastbourne for the third consecutive year by beating Andrea Petkovic in straight sets Thursday, while Agnieszka Radwanska also won easily in the quarterfinals of the Wimbledon warm-up event.

The second-seeded Wozniacki won 7-5, 6-1 on a hot day on the south coast and will next play Switzerland's Belinda Bencic, who ended Johanna Konta's superb run in her home tournament with a 2-6, 6-0, 6-3 victory.

Wozniacki lost in the Eastbourne semifinals in 2013 and '14 -- and lost to Bencic in their last meeting, in the last 32 at Indian Wells in March.

Radwanska, a former Wimbledon finalist, beat Tzvetana Pironkova 6-2, 6-2 to set up a semifinal match against Sloane Stephens, who advanced after opponent Daria Gavrilova pulled out with a stomach injury.
