After four deuces, the 27-year-old held with a thumping forehand then raced away with the ensuing tiebreak to seal a title-decider against either Simona Halep or Angelique Kerber. Wozniacki has yet to win a grand slam title despite spending 67 weeks as world No 1 and is the only player to have won more than 25 WTA titles without claiming a major title. She lost six successive tour finals in 2017 but showed a more aggressive edge to her game when she saved two match points to battle back from 5-1 down in the third set to win her second round match against Jana Fett last week. Victory over Halep or Kerber Saturday would take her back to the top of the world ranking but, having lost both her previous grand slam final at the U.S Open, clearly finally landing a major title would mean far more.
