Top seed Caroline Wozniacki cruised into the semi-finals of the Korea Open with a straight sets victory over Klara Zakopalova of the Czech Republic.
Wozniacki's serene progress at the Seoul hard-court event continued as she breezed to a 6-2 6-3 win against her seventh-seeded rival.
Next up for the Dane will be the eighth seed, Ekaterina Makarova, who recorded an even more facile triumph.
The Russian completely overpowered Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez of Spain, dropping only two games as she recorded a 6-1 6-1 success.
In the other semi-final clash, third seed Kaia Kanepi of Estonia will take on sixth-seeded American Varvara Lepchenko.
Kanepi progressed after a straight sets win of her own, beating Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands 6-4 6-4, but Lepchenko had to work much harder before emerging a 4-6 7-6 (7/3) 6-4 victor over Austria's Tamira Paszek.
