There were no major upsets at the Israel national tennis championships in Ra’anana on Tuesday, with Julia Glushko the first to book her place in the semifinals.

Glushko, ranked No. 154 in the world, received a bye into the last eight and wasn’t at her best in a 6-3, 7-6 (5) win over Fed Cup teammate Keren Shlomo (1,079).

Glushko awaits the winner of Wednesday’s quarterfinal between Deniz Khazaniuk (380) and Alona Pushkarevsky.

“When I woke up this morning I felt a little pressure because I hadn’t taken part in a tournament in two months,” said Glushko, who is targeting her third title in four years in Ra’anana. “I have no idea who I can play in the semis, but this is a good preparation for Australia. It is a fun way to begin the season and prepares you for tougher competition.”
