Local favourite Robin Soderling eased into the semi-finals of the Swedish Open with a 6-3 6-4 victory over number eight seed Potito Starace. The top-seeded Swede lost just 10 points on serve all match, and will now face third-seed Tomas Berdych for a place in Sunday’s final. 2010 Wimbledon runner up Berdych enjoyed an equally-comfortable passage into the last four as he ousted Slovenia’s Blaz Kavcic 6-1 6-4.

World number six David Ferrer also advanced by beating Austria’s Andreas Haider-Maurer 6-1 6-1. The Spanish right-hander will meet compatriot Nicolas Almagro for a place in the final after he defeated Sweden’s Andreas Ryderstedt 6-4 7-6 (7-4). Defending champion Almagro and Ryderstedt both had to complete their second-round matches earlier on Friday after they were suspended because of rain. Ryderstedt beat Spain’s Ruben Ramirez Hidalgo 6-4 6-2 and Almagro defeated fellow Spaniard Guillermo Olaso 6-2 6-3.
