Croatian teen Ana Konjuh has enjoyed a free pass to the ASB Classic semi-finals after opponent Naomi Osaka retired with injury.

In the battle of the tournament's young guns, Konjuh was ahead 2-0 in the first set when Osaka withdrew with a wrist complaint.

The 19-year-old will now face either Julia Goerges or Danish star Caroline Wozniacki in the semi-finals.
