Caroline Wozniacki lands in Charleston quarterfinals after two tiebreaks


World No.1 Caroline Wozniacki had an easy second-round match at the Family Circle Cup in Charleston, but the third round against the tricky opponent of Barbora Zahlavova Strycova was a big challenge for the Dane, who eventually prevailed with a 7-6(6) 7-6(9) score.

The match lasted more than two hours and a half. In the first set, despite establishing a 4-1 lead, Wozniacki played a tiebreak and saved a set point then. The second tiebreak was difficult too, as Wozniacki squandered four match points before defeating the 48th-ranked Zahlavova Strycova, seeded 15th at the Premier-level tournament.
