Six years ago a 21-year-old Dane named Caroline Wozniacki was ridiculed as a paper No.1, a pretender to the throne of Serena Williams, sitting atop the WTA Rankings without ever having won a Grand Slam title.

Thereafter followed a downward spiral as the young Dane battled challenges on and off the court and slowly made the climb back up the rankings to be in a position to challenge for titles. However, she never really looked close to breaking her duck on the stages that really matter, and her trip down under appeared to be more of the same as she was a point away from crashing out in the second round at the hands of unheralded Croatian Jana Fett in the second round.

Former world no.1 Caroline Wozniacki and British rising star Johanna Konta will battle it out for the Miami Open title after registering contrasting wins in their respective semi-final encounters on Thursday.

Wozniacki was the first to advance, reaching her first ever Miami Open final with a come-from-behind 5-7, 6-1, 6-1 victory over Czech Karolina Pliskova. The match seemed to be going Pliskova's way after she saved three set points in the 10th game and went on to take the first set, but the contest then took a surprising turn.

Danish superstar Caroline Wozniacki defeated Japanese teenager Naomi Osaka 7-5, 6-3 in the final of the Toray Pan Pacific Open in Tokyo on Sunday.

26-year-old Wozniacki, a former World No.1, needed an hour and 45 minutes to beat the tenacious Osaka, who enjoyed the support of the home fans. Wozniacki, currently ranked no.28 in the world, used her experience to get the edge on the 18-year-old Osaka, who failed to convert on break opportunities, at key points in the match.

New World No.1 Angelique Kerber marked her rise to the top of the rankings with a commanding 6-4, 6-3 win over Caroline Wozniacki to reach her first US Open final and her third major final of the year.

With Serena Williams stunned in the semi-finals earlier on Thursday by Karolina Pliskova, Kerber stepped onto Arthur Ashe Stadium as the provisional World No.1 - she will assume the top spot when the new rankings are released on Monday.

Germany's Angelique Kerber powered to a 7-5, 6-0 victory over Italy's Roberta Vinci, advancing to the US Open women's singles semi-finals where she will take on former world no.1 Caroline Wozniacki.

The 28-year-old German player took control over the proceedings on Tuesday in the second set, dominating Vinci with a strong baseline game and preventing the Italian from holding serve.

Vinci, the world bo.8, was unable to match her 2015 dream run at this year's US Open, having made the final last year, losing to compatriot Flavia Pennetta.

Last month, Kerber won the silver medal in singles at the Olympic tennis tournament in Rio de Janeiro. Losing to Puerto Rico's Monica Puig in the women's gold medal match. The German is enjoying a dream year, winning the 2016 Australian Open title, whilst also making the final at Wimbledon.

The German is on the verge of overtaking Serena Williams for the world no.1 ranking, and will look to continue her march towards the title here at Flushing Meadows, New York when she takes on two-time former runner-up Caroline Wozniacki in the semi-finals.

Denmark's Wozniacki was in irrepressible form on Tuesday, routing Latvia's Anastasija Sevastova 6-0, 6-2 in the quarter-finals. In fairness to Sevastova, she was hampered for the best part of the contest by an ankle injury she picked up early in the contest.

A delighted Wozniacki shared after her win, "I think I was just extra focused, because I saw her fall in that second game. She stood up, and I knew if she can still walk and still put weight on it and stuff then she's going to go obviously more for her shots and stuff like that. But I thought, cool. I kept serving well and made her run. I'm pleased with how I managed to keep composed."


American qualifier Ryan Harrison has pulled off the biggest upset so far at the ongoing US Open, stunning fifth-seeded Canadian Milos Raonic 6-7 (4-7), 7-5, 7-5, 6-1 in second-round tennis action.

Raonic appeared to be in total control when he went up a break in the third set, but leg cramps began severely hampering his movement and allowed Harrison to climb back into the match on Wednesday.
