Caroline Wozniacki mocks opponent Monica Niculescu's grunts at Qatar Open

Bennie Garza | 16 February, 2018, 20:22

Though the umpire disagreed with her claims, Wozniacki continued to lambast her opponent after the match in Doha.

'It says in the rule book that you're not allowed to grunt when your opponent's about to hit.

'Obviously she's a player that tried to get into your head, ' Wozniacki added in her post-match press conference.

She then mimicked the grunts.

Bellis looked fairly comfortable against her Czech opponent's powerful serve, breaking her five times on her way to victory in an hour and 37 minutes.

Asked if she thought her opponent was grunting deliberately, Wozniacki responded: "I think that she didn't do it in the second set, so".

At 27-years-old, one of the finest tennis players of her generation finally managed to secure a Grand Slam win; overcoming Simona Halep in an incredibly tight Australian Open final.

Wozniacki and Halep are on opposite sides of the draw and they remain on course for a rematch of last month's Australian Open final after a pair of last-16 wins.

Elsewhere, two-time grand slam victor Angelique Kerber came back from a set down to defeat Johanna Konta 1-6, 6-1, 6-3 while former French Open champion Garbine Muguruza was too strong for Sorana-Mihaela Cirstea, winning 6-0, 6-4.

She will face Angelique Kerber who beat Johanna Konta for the third time on hardcourt.

Halep's triumph was much more straightforward, although she too faced a tricky opponent in Sevastova and had to show her class to emerge 6-4 6-3.

The world number two will play 18-year-old American qualifier Catherine Bellis in the last eight, who beat defending champion and world number five Karolina Pliskova 7-6 (7/4), 6-3.

"I think it's definitely a milestone".

'That was very bad from her, I have never heard a No. 1 to talk like that, ' the Romanian said.

Garbine Muguruza, the world No. 4, breezed through beating Sorana Cirstea 6-0, 6-4 and was due to play France's Caroline Garcia.

In the second round of the doubles, seventh seeds Chan Hao-ching of Taiwan and Yang Zhaoxuan of China fell to a 3-6, 6-4, 10-6 loss to Kateryna Bondarenko of Ukraine and Aleksandra Krunic of Serbia.
