Live Comments

  1. - - Wozniacki: "I played her one time before in the Fed Cup last year and knew she is a tough opponent. She can play hard and slow the balls down a bit - it's tough to get rhythm against her, but I pulled through and am in the quarter-finals. We're in the second week now so there are no easy matches."

  2. - - Match stats: (Wozniacki/Sevastova): 1st Serve % 67/65; Aces 1/3; Double Faults 4/3; Unforced Errors 14/36; Winners 16/26; Total Points Won 72/57.

  3. - - Set stats: (Wozniacki/Sevastova): 1st Serve % 59/67; Aces 1/2; Double Faults 1/0; Unforced Errors 8/16; Winners 9/16; Total Points Won 37/31

  4. - - WOZNIACKI 6-3 6-4 - GAME, SET AND MATCH - At 30-15 up Sevastova pushes her rival back and advances to fire a missile into the corner. Thankfully it is within the boundaries of the court. However match point follows and it is all over as Wozniacki reaches the net in time to swipe home a winner.

  5. - - WOZNIACKI 6-3 5-4 - BREAK - Brilliant from Sevastova on the first point, firing a wonderful winner and going on to win game point. However while in position at the net with Wozniacki hareing all over the place behind the baseline, she smashes too centrally - and the Dane hits it back so hard that she can only find the net. The 46-ranked Latvian slumps on deuce to hand her opponent the chance to serve for the match.

  6. - - WOZNIACKI 6-3 4-4 - BREAK - Wobble from Wozniacki. Two points gifted to Sevastova then a third to go 15-40 down... the No.1 seed chops a shot just wide and fails with a challenge to find herself broken back!

  7. - - WOZNIACKI 6-3 4-3 - Sevastova fires her way to 40-0, to the delight of the crowd, before an error brings Wozniacki into play. The lower-ranked player seems to have won the game but Caroline challenges the in-call and it did not quite catch the corner. However Anastasija wrongfoots Wozniacki, whose footwork is not the best, to remain in contention in this set.

  8. - - WOZNIACKI 6-3 4-2 - Sevastova's best showing at a Slam before this year was the second round at the US Open in both 2009 and 2010. She gets to deuce on the Wozniacki serve here - and is unlucky to see an overhead drive from a bouncing ball on the baseline come back off the netcord - then is unable to convert a break point. The Dane serves an ace and takes the hold from there.

  9. - - WOZNIACKI 6-3 3-2 - The Latvian strikes the ball so it bounces uncomfortably close to the baseline - but is also capable of the sublime, two awesome forehands to opposite corners putting her within touching distance of a vital hold - and a long Wozniacki return seals it.

  10. - - WOZNIACKI 6-3 3-1 - Sevastova has won 27 of her 52 career matches, whereas Wozniacki has won 198 and lost 83. Caroline looks strong again, whipping a pair of cross-court winners to hold while dropping just the one point.

  11. - - WOZNIACKI 6-3 2-1 - BREAK - Wozniacki defending furiously against the flat groundstrokes of Sevastova. She keeps them up until hitting one too centrally with more of a dip... and is punished by a winner to the corner. Wozniacki wins two break points - but an ace down the middle and winner saves them! However the Dr Jekyll side of Sevastova's game comes back out to ruin her chances of a hold.

  12. - - WOZNIACKI 6-3 1-1 - BREAK - Sevastova getting desperate, challenging a Wozniacki winner that clearly landed on the baseline. However she goes on to refind her forehand and win a break back point when Wozniacki defends unsuccessfully... and with both players at the net, the break is hers! Suddenly confident.

  13. - - WOZNIACKI 6-3 1-0 - BREAK - Disaster for Sevastova as she is broken to love. Errors aplenty while Wozniacki looks confident - the first error is a simple volley which she sends well wide across the court.

  16. - - Set stats: (Wozniacki/Sevastova): 1st Serve % 74/63; Aces 0/1; Double Faults 3/3; Unforced Errors 6/20; Winners 7/10; Total Points Won 35/26.

  17. - - WOZNIACKI 6-3 - FIRST SET TO THE DANE - A fabulous backhand on the line gives Wozniacki the edge and two set points follow a Sevastova mis-hit... she chops a drop into the net and that is set Wozniacki. Five games in a row for her.

  18. - - WOZNIACKI 5-3 - BREAK - Wozniacki has a break chance thanks to more errors - the last hit into the net - and it is converted following a shocking sliced backhand which drops wide and long. The match has turned right around now. The Dane to serve for the opening set.

  19. - - WOZNIACKI 4-3 - On this occasion Sevastova's lob pays dividends, an attempted backhand smash leaving the court open for her... two long shots from Wozniacki then gift her two break points! A pair of long backhands sees them melt away then a relieved Caroline seals the hold by leaving alone another long backhand then dropping one short which Anastasija can only hit into the net.

  20. - - WOZNIACKI 3-3 - BREAK - Famously Wozniacki is No.1 despite not having won a Grand Slam. Her best showing is runner-up at the 2009 US Open. Sevastova with a double fault and wide forehand to give her a sterling chance to break back in this set... two break points follow another double fault, but the Dane cannot convert either of them. However errors are creeping into her opponent's game - and Wozniacki does indeed break back.

  21. - - WOZNIACKI 2-3 - The Dane is struggling a little to dominate her service games as the returns come back so quickly. She looks better when she comes in close - Sevastova tries to lob in those instances and a smash duly follows. When the lower-ranked player attacks here, she stretches to defend with a volley and finds the net to lose the game.

  22. - - WOZNIACKI 1-3 - Excellent winner from Sevastova, backed up on the subsequent points to go 40-15 up... however Wozniacki finds her mojo to take the game to deuce. A top winner sees the server go advantage up... and a quite brilliant 19-stroke rally sees her manoeuvre the No.1 seed into a position where she can fire another to seal the game.

  23. - - WOZNIACKI 1-2 - The 20-year-old Latvian, ranked 46 in the world, has a wobble while her illustrious rival - also only 20 - improves her serve to take a love game and get on the board.

  24. - - WOZNIACKI 0-2 - The double fault curse strikes the Latvian at the start of the next game. She rallies well to level then takes the lead when Wozniacki hits long... and more excellent baseline shots, especially on the backhand, cements the hold and a two-game lead.

  25. - - WOZNIACKI 0-1 - BREAK - A few shots in the first rally, won with a great backhand to the corner by Sevastova. Wozniacki fights back to 30-15 before more clean hitting by the Latvian sees her pull level. Wozniacki comes out on top in another long rally before a double fault takes the game to deuce... cheeky backspin drop gives Sevastova break point - and another double fault sees the world No.1 broken!

  26. - - Time is called and the players have a last sit down and drink of water before the start of this fourth-round match. Next up a quarter-final against either Svetlana Kuznetsova or Francesca Schiavone - they play later. Australian Open order of play

  27. - - Wozniacki is proving to be the star of the Australian Open - and not just in terms of her performances on the court. Wozniacki not boring, backs Dalglish
