Top seed King beat seventh-seeded French rival Coline Aumard 11-6 11-8 11-9 to set up a semi-final against Australian third seed Donna Urquhart.

World No.11 King can expect a sterner challenge from 18th-ranked Urquhart who, at 18th in the world, is 14 spots higher than Aumard.

The New Zealander opened the tournament with a straight-games defeat of unseeded Belgian Nele Gilis.
