Ukraine’s No.1 and world No.6 Elina Svitolina moved into the semifinals of the Brisbane International with a prize fund of $894,700.

Elina Svitolina moved into the semifinals when Johanna Konta retired with a hip problem in the third set of their quarterfinal, AP reports.

Third-seeded Svitolina had just held for a 3-2 lead in the third set when Konta walked to the net and said she could no longer continue, two games after receiving treatment for a right hip problem. Konta dominated the first set after saving four break points early but Svitolina rallied to win the next in a tiebreak and advance with a score of 1-6, 7-6 (6), 3-2, retired.

Svitolina will play either defending champion Karolina Pliskova or 2012 winner Kaia Kanepi for a place in Saturday's final.
