A triumphant Eleni Daniilidou following Tuesday’s 6-1, 6-3 win against Croatian Karolina Sprem, ranked 39th, for a place at the semis at the NASDAQ-100 Open in Florida. Daniilidou, ranked 35th, will now meet Serena Williams, the event’s top seed and world No. 6 who is currently rebounding from injury. Daniilidou, 21, has yet to beat Williams in two meetings, both in 2003, at the Australian Open and Paris Indoors. ‘She’s a top player again. I will try my best and try to enjoy,’ said Daniilidou. ‘This is very important to me.’
