ACAPULCO, Mexico (AP) Top-seeded Maria Sharapova of Russia withdrew Friday before her Mexico Open semifinal against Caroline Garcia because of a stomach virus.

The third-seeded Garcia will face fifth-seeded Timea Bacsinszky of Switzerland in the hard-court event at The Fairmont Acapulco Princess. Bacsinszky beat Bulgaria's Sesil Karatantcheva 6-2, 6-4.

In the men's semifinals, top-seeded Kei Nishikori of Japan faced fourth-seeded Kevin Anderson of South Africa, and second-seeded David Ferrer of Spain played Ryan Harrison of the United States.
