In the quarterfinals of the Medibank International Sydney, top seed Serena Williams was pushed to the limit by Denmark’s Caroline Wozniacki, who had three match points but failed to convert them.
The world No.12 Wozniacki was on a good way to beat Williams, when she broke the American to lead 6-5 in the final set. However, Wozniacki failed to serve out, wasting three match points in the process and Williams eventually won the match 6-7 6-3 7-6.
Remember, Williams also saved four match points in her first-round encounter with Australia’s Samantha Stosur.
In the other quarterfinals, Svetlana Kuznetsova pulled out of the match with Ai Sugiyama with a stomach problem, Elena Dementieva scored her eighth straight win this season beating Agniezska Radwanska 6-2 5-7 6-4, while Dinara Safina, who will meet Sugiyama in the semis, defeated Alize Cornet 6-3 6-4.
