Caroline Wozniacki survives Carla Suarez Navarro test
Caroline Wozniacki is into the Australian Open semi-finals for the first time since 2011 after a three-set win over Carla Suarez Navarro.
The second seed looked set for an easy victory after she won the opening set to love, but Suarez Navarro hit back to level things with a second-set tie-breaker to take it to a decider.
However, Wozniacki prevailed as she won 6-0, 6-7 (3-7), 6-2 in two hours and 11 minutes on Rod Laver Arena.
