Former world number one Amelie Mauresmo and soon-to-become a Top 10 member Caroline Wozniacki will meet in the semifinals of the Mutua Madrilena Madrid Open.
Mauresmo advanced to the final four after fighting back from a set down to beat Agnes Szavay 5-7 6-1 6-1. In the third set, Mauresmo broke Szavay’s serve in the first, third and seventh game.
Earlier on Friday, ninth seed Caroline Wozniacki, who will become the first Danish woman to crack the Top 10, defeated Vera Dushevina 6-0 6-4.
Mauresmo and Wozniacki have never clashed so far, so we’ll watch their first career meeting.
In the other semifinal, world No.1 Dinara Safina, who beat Alona Bondarenko 6-4 6-3, will face the winner of the quarterfinal between fourth seed Jelena Jankovic and Patty Schnyder. (photo: Ralf Reinecke)
