SIMONA SURVIVES SLIP TO STORM INTO SEMIS; TENNIS.

SIMONA HALEP overcame a second-set lapse to secure a 6-4 7-5 Miami Open quarter-final victory over China's Wang Qiang.

The result put the Romanian one win away from reclaiming the world's top ranking.

Second seed Halep stormed back from 5-1 down in the second set and saved three set points before wrapping up the win over 18th-seeded Wang in 89 minutes. She said: "Playing again in the semi-finals is going to be a big challenge. And maybe I can achieve my best result here and play in the final."

Up next for Halep will be the winner of the all-Czech quarter-final between Karolina Pliskova and Marketa Vondrousova.
