PALERMO, Italy —

British teenager Laura Robson continued her winning run at the Italiacom Open on Friday, beating fifth-seeded Carla Suarez Navarro of Spain 6-4, 2-6, 6-3 to reach her first ever semifinals.

Robson won the Junior Wimbledon title four years ago when she was 14, but this is the furthest she has advanced in a WTA event.

She will meet eighth-seeded Barbora Zahlavova Strycova, who beat third-seed Julia Georges 7-6 (4), 6-7 (4), 6-1.

Top-seeded Sara Errani eased through to the last four, requiring just over an hour to defeat Alexandra Cadantu 6-2, 6-2.

Runner-up at the French Open last month, the Italian will meet 75th-ranked Irina-Camelia Begu. Begu defeated Estrella Cabeza Candela 5-7, 6-4, 6-4.
