Angelique Kerber continued to delight her home fans by reaching the semi-finals of the Nurnberger Versicherungscup on Thursday.

The second-seeded German needed just 66 minutes to dispatch Japan's Misaki Doi and book a last four meeting with Italian fourth seed Roberta Vinci.

Vinci endured a tougher than expected test against another Japanese player, Kurumi Nara, recovering from a poor second set to move through 6-1 1-6 6-4.
