NOTTINGHAM, England (AP) Top-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska kept up her serene progress at the Nottingham Open by beating Lauren Davis in straight sets to reach the semifinals of the Wimbledon warm-up tournament on Friday.

Finding some form after a disappointing first half of the year, the 13th-ranked Radwanska won 6-2, 6-2 for her third straight easy victory in central England this week and will play Monica Niculescu in the last four.

''Winning another title is always great - I am going to do everything in my power to get it,'' said Radwanska, a Wimbledon finalist in 2012. ''Every match helps. Now I really feel the grass and I'm comfortable on it.''

Radwanska has not dropped more than three games in a set this week.


Niculescu, who is unseeded, beat Johanna Konta 6-2, 2-6, 6-2 to end British hopes of a home winner.

Fifth-seeded Alison Riske of the United States advanced from the quarterfinals after Belgian opponent Yanina Wickmayer retired because of food poisoning when losing 6-2, 2-0.

Play was then suspended for the day because of rain, meaning the fourth quarterfinal between Ana Konjuh and Sachia Vickery will be played Saturday.
