With her Canadian partner Bianca Andreescu, the 32-year-old from Berlin surprised the number three seeded American-Japanese duo of Asia Muhammad and Ena Shibahara 7-6 (7-4), 1-6, 10-7.

Lisicki/Andreescu will face top seeds Storm Sanders/Katerina Siniakova in the semi-finals of the €790,000 event. The Australian-Czech duo had earlier won 3-6, 7-6 (7-5), 12-10 against Nicole Melchiar-Martinez of the USA and Ellen Perez of Australia.

In the singles competition, Olympic tennis champion Belinda Bencic had previously reached the quarter-finals.
