    Last night Caroline Wozniacki stayed on course for a second grand slam final appearance with a rout of Sara Errani in the quarter-finals of the US Open. After beating Maria Sharapova on Sunday for one of the best victories of her career, Wozniacki picked up where she left off to defeat 13th seed Errani 6-0 6-1.


    It was a great match. It was really tricky conditions with the wind but I stayed aggressive and it really paid off today. The first game was very important. I was a little bit nervous but I served really well after that. To be in the semi-finals means so much to me. It's been an up and down year but it's an incredible feeling and it shows that hard work pays off."

    [markpetchey] "One of the big factors at night from Andy's perspective is the pace of the court is the same. I was speaking to him last night and he said the ball doesn't jump up as much. It stays in the hit zone for both guys, so I think that changes it to some degree,. You can't just bail out with a high ball because it's still going to stay in sort of the hit zone for Novak and the same can be said for Andy as well. There are a number of factors, but it's one of those matches that they live for but we also live for as well."

  • VIKA SUFFERS FOOD POISONING
    Victoria Azarenka's press representative revealed after her defeat to Ekaterina Makarova that the Belarusian had been unable to practice on Tuesday because of food poisoning. Azarenka said:


    I don't really want to talk about it. I just want to give  credit to my opponent. She played really well today. Am I disappointed? Yes, I'm  disappointed.  But I feel like I tried my best with whatever I had. I just want to wish her  good luck. That's it. I'm out of the tournament."

    Azarenka could nevertheless take encouragement from the fact she reached the quarter-finals against most people's expectations given her struggles this season.


    It's the first time since the Australian Open where I was able to play five matches during the tournament. Whatever I have done on and off the court during practice, I never give up on every single day.



    AZARENKA SUFFERED FOOD POISONING
