World No.1 Caroline Wozniacki lost just two games in the Qatar Ladies Open quarterfinal against 15th-ranked Flavia Pennetta – the first two games, in particular, before winning 12 straight games. Wozniacki hit 35 winners to Pennetta’s 33, but the real difference came in unforced errors, where Wozniacki had three times less – 7 to Pennetta’s 21.
Even though the score is so dominantly on Wozniacki’s side, the match was not as easy. Actually, there were two long games (about 13 minutes each), one featuring nine deuces, and the other one seven.
Marion Bartoli will be Wozniacki’s opponent in the semis. The Frenchwoman earlier defeated Peng Shuai 6-2 6-2. (photo: Johan Rivera)
