Cornet knocks out Muguruza to reach Berlin semi-finals
France's Alize Cornet reacts after winning a point against Spain's Garbine Muguruza during their quarter-final women's singles match.
Cornet, currently 63rd in the world, dug deep to seal a 4-6, 6-3, 7-6 (7/5) victory over Spain's two-time Grand Slam winner Muguruza, now ranked 13th, after almost three hours on court.
This is the 31-year-old Cornet's first appearance in the semi-finals of a WTA tournament for nearly two years.
She will play Switzerland's Belinda Bencic, ranked 12th in the world, on Saturday for a place in the final.
Bencic, the fifth seed, booked her semi-final slot with a 6-4, 4-6, 7-6 (7/4) win over Russia's Ekaterina Alexandrova.
