Reuters: Fourth seed Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland withdrew from the Western and Southern Open for personal reasons on Thursday, sending defending champion Li Na of China through to the semi-finals. Radwanska had earlier beaten Russian Elena Vesnina 6-0 6-2 to advance to the quarter-finals but withdrew from the tournament to attend her grandfather’s funeral. “I’m very sorry that I have to withdraw from the tournament. Unfortunately, my grand-dad passed away last Sunday,” said Radwanska in a statement. “The funeral is going to be Saturday and I need to be there. “I am disappointed to not continue with the tournament, especially because of my form so far this week.” “It was a difficult decision, but I need to go home and be with my family.”
