DOHA, Qatar (AP) _ Fifth-seeded Bohdan Ulihrach defeated Fernando Vicente 6-1, 6-1 Thursday to advance to the semifinals of the Qatar Open.

``I never expected it to be such an easy match,″ said the Czech, who lost in last year’s final ``I felt that Fernando did not want to win this quarterfinal.″

Ulihrach will meet No. 8 Felix Mantilla, who beat qualifier Radek Stepanek 6-3, 6-3. On Wednesday, Stepanek upset No. 2 Goran Ivansevic.
