Anne Keothavong's bid to reach a first Tour final ended disappointingly as she lost 6-4 6-2 to Italian Roberta Vinci in the Luxembourg Open semi-final.

The British number two, who is ranked 143rd in the world, beat Patty Schnyder and Iveta Benesova to reach the semis.

Keothavong, 27, was broken three times in each set and won 54% of points on her first serve and 35% on her second.

Vinci will meet German Julia Goerges in the final after she beat compatriot Angelique Kerber 6-4 3-6 6-1.

Keothavong said on Twitter: "Been a good week despite today's performance. Yesterday was a long day with singles and doubles and it took a lot out of me which showed."
