The world No.1 beat the big-serving American 6-4 7-6 (7-0) to reach the last four where he will face third seed Grigor Dimitrov.

Victor edges Halep closer to taking the world number one ranking held by Spain's GarbiƱe Muguruza, who bowed out of the tournament in the first round with a virus.

She smiled broadly, then cried and was presented with a flower arrangement in the figure "1" - which she hugged tightly - to celebrate the landmark moment.

'It was not important, but I am still feeling it a little bit'.

"Maybe first time on court (to cry) nice tears..." I'm happy for him that he's having a good year.

"I think Grigor is a player always with a great attitude, with a positive character". I don't know how many I had. "But if you add that he is playing very well now from the baseline, he is one of the toughest opponents you can meet". He'll face Dimitrov in the semi-final after the Bulgarian battled to a three-set win over Bautista Agut.

Goffin, chasing his second consecutive title after winning in Shenzhen last week, saw off Richard Gasquet 7-5 6-2 and Schwartzman was a 6-0 7-5 victor over Steve Johnson.

Also, third-seeded Sorana Cirstea defeated fourth-seeded Karolina Pliskova 6-1, 7-5, Caroline Garcia beat Alize Cornet 6-2, 6-1, and Petra Kvitova beat former No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki 6-1, 6-4.

There's a reason he's world number one.

A year ago the 22-year-old was suspended by tennis authorities for his behaviour in a defeat in Shanghai during which he appeared to give up and argued with the crowd.

An omnious warning of intent was sent by Rafael Nadal (31), as the 16-time Grand Slam victor and the Spanish world number one, bulldozed his way into the quarter-finals of the China Open on Thursday. But back to the match, I think I also had too many chances at some point.
