Second seed Caroline Wozniacki withstood a fightback from Spain's unseeded Carla Suarez Navarro to stutter into the semi-finals of the Australian Open 6-0, 6-7, 6-2 yesterday. "I knew it was going to be tough against her because in the first set a lot of games were very close," said the Dane, who is into a second semi-final at Melbourne.

"Another semi-final here, I'm excited," she added. Wozniacki will face another unseeded player, Elise Mertens of Belgium tomorrow for a place in the final. The former world number has often failed to live up to the hype in the majors, but in the opening set she outplayed Suarez Navarro who was trying to become the first Spaniard to make the last four since Conchita Martinez in 2000. "She improved and made me step behind the baseline. That made the difference," said Wozniacki.
