She did however, comes from a set down to beat Ekaterina Makarova in the quarter-finals.

The fifth seed Wozniacki dropped the first set against the Russian 6-4 but won the next 6-0 despite the foot fault incident.

She took the final set 6-3 to set up a semi-final meeting with American surprise package Jamie Hampton.
