Krejcikova will take on either American wildcard Coco Gauff or Jil Teichmann of Switzerland, in the last four

Barbora Krejcikova of the Czech Republic made it to the third semifinals of her career with a commanding victory over Russian wildcard Anastasia Potapova in the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships on Thursday.

The world No.63 was dominant as she eased past the 19-year-old 6-0, 6-2 in the quarterfinals on Centre Court at the Aviation Club Tennis Centre.

Krejcikova broke Potapova in the first, third and the fifth games to take the first set 6-0 in 25 minute.

And although they traded breaks in the third and fourth games, Krejcikova broke Potapova in the fifth and seventh games and then served out for the set and the match. The 25-year-old closed it out with an inch perfect ace down the middle, her only one of the match. Krejcikova won 60 points to Potapova’s 34.

Krejcikova will take on either American wildcard Coco Gauff or Jil Teichmann of Switzerland, in the last four.
