VINA DEL MAR, Chile -- Top-seeded Fabio Fognini of Italy defeated fifth-seeded Jeremy Chardy of France 6-4, 3-6, 6-2 on Friday to reach the semifinals of the Royal Guard Open clay-court tournament in Chile.

Fognini will face either Nicolas Almagro of Spain or Daniel Taro of Japan in one of Saturday's semifinals. They played late Friday.

Almagro has won 12 ATP events -- all on clay -- and six in Latin America. He is looking for his first title in Chile.

In two other quarterfinals, Santiago Giraldo of Colombia won over Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain 3-6, 6-4, 6-2, and Leonardo Mayer of Argentina beat Daniel Gimeno-Traver of Spain 3-6, 7-5, 6-3.
