Friday October 14th, 2016

LINZ, Austria (AP) Madison Keys advanced to her fifth semifinal of the season by beating Oceane Dodin of France 6-3, 6-3 at the Generali Ladies on Friday.

The seventh-ranked American will play either top-seeded Garbine Muguruza, the French Open champion, or Viktorija Golubic of Switzerland for a place in Sunday's final.

Fourth-seeded Carla Suarez Navarro of Spain also reached the semifinals after defeating Denisa Allertova of the Czech Republic 6-4, 4-6, 6-2.

The third-seeded Keys converted all three of her break points on Dodin's serve and the French qualifier double-faulted on match point.

Keys, who hasn't dropped a set in the tournament, is 3-1 in semifinals this season. She won her second career title in Birmingham in June.
