Maria Sharapova overcame problems with her new service motion to outlast Urszula Radwanska on Friday and book a place in the semifinals of the L.A. Women's Tennis Championships.

Sharapova beat the eighth-seeded Pole 6-4, 7-5 to set up a semi against either second-seeded Russian compatriot Vera Zvonareva or tenth-seeded Flavia Pennetta of Italy, who were to play later Friday.

Sharapova who was sideline for several months because of her injury, is trying to work on an abbreviated service motion to take pressure off the joint.

Sharapova who is currently ranked 61 has yet to win the title in Carson.
