MUNICH — Philipp Petzschner upset defending champion Tomas Berdych 1-6, 6-3, 6-4 Friday and reach the semifinals of the BMW Open.
Two-time runner-up Mikhail Youzhny of Russia, who lost last year's final to Berdych, eased into the last four by defeating Jiri Hajek 6-1, 6-3.
Marcos Baghdatis reached his second semifinal of the year by stopping Philip Kohlschreiber of Germany 6-3, 6-4. Kohlschreiber won the tournament in 2007.
Baghdatis saved three break points before serving out the match.
