Angelique Kerber has secured a place in the semi-finals of the Toray Pan Pacific Open following a 6-3 6-0 win over Dominika Cibulkova.

Both players lost their opening service games in the first set, but Kerber was able to bounce back with a break to take the edge in the early stages of the contest.
