Canada’s Christina Popescu reached the semifinals of ITF Young Seniors World Individual Championships on Tuesday in Cape Town. The No. 1 seed in the women’s over-35 division recorded a 6-3, 7-6(9) win over Alina Camelia Stroiu of Romania. The win sets up Popescu, from Repentigny, Que., for a semifinal showdown with Germany’s Andrea Fischer on Wednesday.

In addition to singles, Popescu remains alive in women’s over-35 doubles with compatriot Leigh Bradwell. The pair are the top seeds in the draw, and defeated Great Britain’s Michaela Bruce and Tessa Van Der Walt of South Africa 6-3, 1-6, 12-10 in Tuesday’s quarter-finals. Popescu and Bradwell next meet the all-German team of Manon Kruse and Gitte Moeller in the semis.

Popescu also finds herself in the semifinals of the over-35 mixed draw. Partnering with Montreal’s Mathieu Giguere, the Canadians claimed a 6-1, 6-2 win over South African No. 3 seeds Victoria Goodall and Peter Allnutt. They face Latvia’s Vlada Kirlovska and Mike Scheidewiler of Luxembourg for a chance to the final.

A Canadian has also reached the final eight of the men’s over-45 singles draw. Taras Beyko, of Montreal, captured a 6-2, 6-2 win over Samuel Journet of Caledonia on Tuesday.  The No. 3 seed prepares to face Great Britain’s Sebastian Jackson on Wednesday.

Also on Tuesday, Giguere fell in his third-round match versus Steve Noblecourt of France 6-4, 6-0, ending his run in the over-35 singles draw.
