Bernard reaches Bogota semifinals

Bernard Tomic has recorded an impressive straight-sets victory over No.3 seed Vasek Pospisil to reach the semifinals of the Claro Open Colombia in Bogota.

Tomic beat the reigning Wimbledon doubles champion 6-4 6-4 in just 70 minutes, his third consecutive straight-sets win in the Colombian capital.

The victory sets up a semifinal with Dominican Victor Estrella Burgos, who upset top seed Richard Gasquet in straight sets.

Tomic, a wildcard into the ATP 250 event, slammed eight aces and won 82 per cent of points on his first serve, and saved the one and only break point he faced.

It is the first time in his career that Tomic has reached a tour-level semifinal outside of Australia.

It is expected that he will return to the world’s top 100 following this week’s result.
