The Cana­dian and part­ner Yi­fan Xu of China, seeded sixth, lost 6-3, 4-6, 7-5 to No. 12 seeds Ni­cole Melichar of the U.S., and Kveta Peschke of the Czech

Repub­lic in the Wimbledon semi­fi­nals on Fri­day.

The match saw Dabrowski and Xu fight off three match points be­fore

ty­ing it at 5-5 in the third set. Melichar and Peschke won the next two games.
