The sixth-seeded and world 12th-ranked Sabalenka advances to a semifinal against Dayana Yastremska, who earlier Thursday beat Donna Vekic 6-4, 6-3.

There was no immediate news about whether the 31-year-old German's injury will prevent her from participating in the Australian Open, which she won in 2016.

Barty advanced to a Friday semi-final against American Danielle Collins, a 6-3, 6-1 victor over Swiss fourth seed Belinda Bencic.

It was a commanding performance by the World No.24, who has yet to lose a set again Vekic, as she served seven aces and tallied 23 winners in just 68 minutes on court.

A late break in each set helped Yastremska book her place in the final four, as she never faced a break point herself after losing serve at 2-0 in the opener.

"It's important that I have mental confidence", he said.
