The 20-year-old Kontaveit made her second quarter-final of the year with a 6-7 (5/7), 6-3, 7-5 win over the third-seeded Dane who missed the clay court season to nurse a right ankle injury.

Wozniacki said she was happy her ankle stood up to a three-set examination with Wimbledon just over two weeks away.

"The match was up and down, but she played well, so hats off to her," Wozniacki said.
