Top-seeded Thierry Tulasne of France and third-seeded Jimmy Arias won their quarterfinal matches Friday in the U.S. Open Clay Courts tennis championships at Indianapolis and will meet today in the semifinals.
In the other semifinal, second-seeded Andres Gomez of Ecuador will face fourth-seeded Martin Jaite of Argentina.
Tulasne eliminated 15th-seeded Brian Teacher of Los Angeles, 6-0, 6-2, then beat Eduardo Bengoechea of Argentina, 6-0, 6-4, in a quarterfinal match.
All of the quarterfinalists played two matches because of rainouts earlier in the week.
Arias defeated American Davis Cup teammate Aaron Krickstein, 6-4, 6-0, in the quarterfinals. Gomez beat Sweden's Mikael Pernfors, 6-3, 7-5, and Jaite downed Jakob Hlasek of Switzerland, 6-2, 6-4.
Pernfors, two-time NCAA champion at the University of Georgia, earlier defeated 10th-seeded Guillermo Vilas of Argentina, 6-7, 7-6, 6-4, in a 3 1/2-hour match.
