SAO PAULO (AP) - Top-seeded Pablo Carreno Busta of Spain has reached the semifinal of the clay-court Brazil Open, defeating Fabio Fognini of Italy 6-0, 7-6 (1).

The Friday match was delayed starting by several hours because on an intense rain storm.

Carreno Busta reached the finals on clay last weekend in Rio, losing to Dominic Thiem of Austria.

Second-seeded Albert Ramos-Vinolas of Spain also reached the semifinals with a 6-4, 3-6, 6-4 win against Guido Pella of Argentina.

He next faces Joao Sousa of Portugal, who advanced to the last four after beating seventh-seeded Federico Delbonis of Argentina 6-3, 6-1.
