The Spanish third seed, who reached the Rome semi-finals past year before going on to win her sole career grand slam, will next face eighth seeded Ukrainian Elina Svitolina, who earlier upset Czech second seed Karolina Pliskova 6-2 7-6 (9).

Muguruza bolted to an early 4-0 lead on her way to winning the first set as the ninth-seeded Williams committed numerous errors. However the Spaniard player won four games in a row to win the match after an hour and 43 minutes. "Especially in the tiebreak, the way I handled everything". I was just trying to stay in the zone and not think about what's going to happen. "I'm proud of how I handled the pressure".

The favorite in the other semifinal will be No. 6 seed Simona Halep, who on Friday stopped the run of Estonian qualifier Anett Kontaveit 6-2, 6-4.

The 21-year-old Kontaveit has beaten Angelique Kerber and Mirjana Lucic-Baroni this week, but could not get past the sixth-seeded Romanian.

"Today was special because this was the first match where I was really calm", Bertens said. "It's gonna be a tough match, but I'm ready for it, ready for a big fight. I think that worked well today, and it wasn't too long".
