Caroline Wozniacki progresses after late finish at Australian Open

Caroline Wozniacki celebrates her quarterfinal win last night at the Australian Open Caroline Wozniacki vs Carla Suarez Navarro: Australian Open women's quarter-final live scores

They are the night match on Rod Laver Arena with Wozniacki taking on Spain's Carla Suarez Navarro immediately afterwards as the stakes are raised in quarter-final action.

The Spanish world number 39 came from a set and 4-1 down to register a 4-6, 6-4, 8-6 win over Anett Kontaveit with a delightful display of her old-school tennis she says is inspired by Justine Henin. It looked like it might prove very costly when Suarez Navarro claimed the tie-break but Wozniacki was the stronger in the decider. The world No. 2 rediscovered her game again in the third set. Navarro simply needs to keep girding and not let a sloppy game here or there impact her performance overall.

Suarez Navarro has reached the quarterfinals at a major five times, but is yet to make the semifinals.

Caroline Wozniacki almost had to book a flight home last week.

Angelique Kerber, the 2016 champ, routed Maria Sharapova 6-1, 6-3 in a third-round win that showcased her credentials as a title contender and ensured she'll be the only Grand Slam champion playing in the second week in the women's draw.

The world number 37 has similarly enjoyed an unbeaten start to 2018, winning the warm-up Hobart International, and Svitolina is not surprised to meet her in the last eight.

"She improved and made me step behind the baseline", said Wozniacki.

The Dane has been in 10 previous Australian Opens but has rarely lived up to the hype, only reaching the semi-final once in 2011. Wozniacki is 6-3 in her career in grand slam semifinal appearances.

"Obviously hard courts is a little different", said Wozniacki.

She has won two of their seven career head-to-heads, which date back to a match on a lower-tier tour in 2006. The most recent match was in the 2017 Madrid Masters, a match Navarro won in three sets.

Kontaviet failed to cope with the unusual problems created by Suarez Navarro's clever shot-making, changes of pace and spin.

Wozniacki dominated from the off in the first set to take it by a bagel. It doesn't get much better than this for her. Navarro is always a tough pro and puts up a fight, but Wozniacki's defense and ability to cover ground is always the difference maker.

"But we've had a lot of tough encounters on hard courts as well".

Wozniacki rolls to the semis. "I have a long way to go".
