Ferrer stays on course in Auckland

AUCKLAND, New Zealand-- David Ferrer may be heading into the twilight of his career but the 35-year-old rolled back the years as he beat Hyeon Chung to cruise into the ATP Auckland Classic semi-finals on Thursday.
Spain's Ferrer, a four-time Auckland champion, disposed of the young Korean 6-3, 6-2 in their quarter final to set up a showdown with Juan Martin del Potro in the final four.
Del Potro beat Russian Karen Khachanov 7-6 (7/4), 6-3 in his quarter-final.
Chung had been a surprise package in the tournament, particularly with the way he outlasted fourth-seed John Isner in a three-set classic on Wednesday.
In a battle between the 2016 and 2015 winners, the more recent champion Roberto Bautista Agut proved too good for Jiri Vesely with a 7-6, 7-2 victory to enter the semi-finals where he will play Robin Haase of the Netherlands on Friday.
