    Safina ends Clijsters' hopes
    World number one sees off Clijsters to reach last four

    Dinara Safina ended Kim Clijsters' hopes of a dream comeback as the Russian triumphed 6-2 7-5 to reach the semi-finals of the Cincinnati Open.

    Clijsters, who is making her return to the sport after a two-year absence, had raised hopes of success at the tournament after she performed impressively in the earlier rounds.

    But despite breaking early on as she took a 2-0 lead against the world number one on Friday, she failed to win another game in the opening set.

    The Belgian then went 4-1 up in the second set, but again Safina came out on top to win the match despite some late resistance.

    The powerful Russian will meet Italian 14th seed Flavia Pennetta for a place in the final after she beat unseeded Daniela Hantuchova 6-3 6-3.
