Tipsarevic rolls into semis in Austrian Open

Serbian Janko Tipsarevic, still jet-lagged from playing in Shanghai last week, enjoyed a swift 6-2, 4-2 passage to the semi-finals of the ATP Austrian Open yesterday after Slovenia's Aljaz Bedene quit with a thigh injury.

The 63-minute result was welcomed by the second seed, who had played both singles and doubles the day before while still feeling the residual effects of a flight from Shanghai. “I had an easy day and I really needed it,” said Tipsarevic, who is fighting to book one of three remaining spots in the season wrap-up World Tour Finals next month in London.
