Nuremberg - Top-seeded Jelena Jankovic cruised past sixth-seeded Lourdes Dominguez Lino 6-4, 6-0 on Thursday to set up a semi-final against Andrea Petkovic in the inaugural WTA Nurnberger Versicherungscup.

Petkovic is coming back from a series of injuries and got a wild card into the tournament, like Jankovic. Petkovic came from a set down to beat eighth-seeded Annika Beck 4-6, 6-3, 7-5.

In the other semi-final Friday, fifth-seeded Lucie Safarova will play No. 7 Simona Halep.

Safarova needed three sets to edge Polona Hercog 7-6 (5), 3-6, 6-4, while Halep defeated Galina Voskoboeva 6-4, 6-1.
