Guy Forget, bidding for a Wimbledon seeding, withstood 17 aces to upset Goran Ivanisevic 6-3, 7-6 (7-3) Friday to advance to the semifinals of the $625,000 Queen’s Club tournament.

Forget will meet second-seeded Boris Becker, who stayed on a roll with a 6-4, 6-1 victory over Australian Jason Stoltenberg.

Top-seeded Pete Sampras also looked impressive, beating Sandon Stolle 6-2, 6-3 to earn a semifinal berth against Marc Goellner of Germany.
