Taiwan’s Hsieh Su-wei and Monica Niculescu of Romania advanced to the semi-finals of the doubles at the Biel Ladies Open in Switzerland on Thursday, while top seed Barbora Strycova won through to the singles quarter-finals.

Second seeds Hsieh and Niculescu took just 58 minutes to see off Lenka Kuncikova of the Czech Republic and Cornelia Lister of Sweden 6-2, 6-2 in their doubles quarter-final.

The duo saved one of the two break points they faced and converted five of 10, winning 59 of the 85 points contested to advance to a semi-final against either third seeds Raluca Olaru and Olga Savchuk or Viktorija Golubic and Kristyna Pliskova.
