World number one Iga Swiatek continued her bid for a third straight Qatar Open title, while Japan’s Naomi Osaka was knocked out in Doha.

Swiatek needed just 74 minutes to beat Belarusian former world number one Victoria Azarenka 6-4 6-0.

The Pole, who is on an 11-match winning run in Doha, will play an in-form Karolina Pliskova in the semi-finals. Czech Pliskova ended Osaka’s best run in nearly two years with a 7-6 (8-6) 7-6 (7-5) win.
