SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) — Three of the four semifinalists at the Chile Open are South American players.

Spain’s Jaume Munar will be the only exception in the clay court tournament after beating Brazil’s Thiago Monteiro on Friday 6-3, 3-6, 6-2. Munar’s next rival will be home-crowd favorite Nicolas Jarry, who beat Yannick Hanfmann of Germany 3-6, 6-3, 6-4.

Two Argentine players will face off in the other semifinal on Saturday — third-seeded Sebastian Baez will take on Tomas Martin Etcheverry.

Baez overcame Laslo Djere 7-6 (4), 6-4. Etcheverry eliminated another Serbian player, Dusan Lajovic, 6-1, 6-2.
