STUTTGART, Germany — Top-ranked Iga Swiatek rallied to beat Karolina Pliskova 4-6, 6-1, 6-2 on Friday for a place in the Porsche Grand Prix semifinals.

Swiatek hadn’t played since last month in the Indian Wells semifinals because of a rib injury but began her clay season Thursday with a convincing win over Qinwen Zweng.

Next, Swiatek next faces third-seeded Ons Jabeur, who eased into the semifinals against Beatriz Haddad Maia by 6-3, 6-0 in their quarterfinal.

Also, second-seeded Aryna Sabalenka rallied to defeat Spain’s Paula Badosa 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 to reach the semis for a third straight year. The Belarusian next faces Anastasia Potapova, who also came from a set down to upset fourth-seeded Caroline Garcia 4-6, 6-3, 6-3.
