Greet Minnen (WTA 113) failed to qualify for the semi-finals of the WTA tournament in Lyon on Friday (hard / $ 235,238). The 23-year-old Minnen lost after one hour and 43 minutes of tennis in two sets (6-3 and 7-6 (7/0)) to the Swiss Viktorija Golubic (WTA 129). It was the first game between both players.
Golubic takes on the French Fiona Ferro (WTA 46), the second seed in the semi-final battle, who took the measure of her compatriot Clara Burel (WTA 218).
Minnen was, after the cancellation of Kirsten Flipkens (WTA 92), the only Belgian on the table in Lyon. (belga)
