NANCHANG, China (AP) - Duan Yingying continued her surprise run at the Jiangxi Open when she upset second-seeded Kurumi Nara of Japan 6-1, 7-5 Friday in the quarterfinals.

The 163rd-ranked Chinese beat eighth-seeded Han Xinyun in the second round.

Duan plays Misa Eguchi in the semifinals after the Japanese defeated Liu Fangzhou 6-1, 6-2.
