Retirement aids Riske

Alison Riske eased into the Nottingham Open semi-finals, and a showdown with Croatia’s Ana Konjuh or American Sachia Vickery, after Yanina Wickmayer retired through illness.

The American #5 seed was in command from the start, powering down three aces and twice breaking Wickmayer to seal the opening set 6-2 after only 33 minutes.

French ace Wickmayer collected just two points, one in each game, before she threw in the towel and retired ill after 13 minutes as she was still suffering from the effects of this week’s food poisoning.
