Wozniacki survives second set scare to roll into Doha semi finals

WTA DOHA- Wozniacki sweet 18 in Doha

An irritated world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki on Thursday progressed to the Qatar Open quarter-finals in a feisty match where she complained and apparently mocked her opponent Monica Niculescu's grunting.

This year's Australian Open champion from Denmark defeated her German opponent 7-6 (7/4) 1-6 6-3 in a match that lasted two hours and 20 minutes.

The umpire said he thought everything was "regular", but Wozniacki added: "It's the only way she can win."She then mimicked the grunts.Afterwards she complained that her opponent was "a player that tries to get into your head".

The World No.2 led by a set and a break after winning the first seven games of the match, but Bellis rebounded to keep the second set close, winning a pair of games to take her first lead. It is clear in the rule book.

She then broke Garcia early in the third set and held on to clinch the victory in almost two hours.

Making sixth appearance at Qatar Total Open, she was self-assured and quick to use her forehand to put pressure on the higher ranked opponent off the backhand side.

"I'm sure she'll have a great year going forward, but I'm happy I got the win today".

"I just tried to let him [the umpire] know to pay attention to her grunting because she'll hit the ball and two seconds later when the ball is on my side and I'm right about to hit, she'll start grunting and make a noise, and she'll change the grunt according to what she feels like".

"It's disturbing. It's one thing if you hit the ball and you start grunting straightaway, then you can grunt a little longer - I don't have a problem with that".

She told Romanian TV channel Digi Sport: "That was very bad from her; I have never heard a number one talk like that". He said that I didn't have enough time to recover. This is how I play'.

The Czech star battled back from a set down to beat Poland's Agnieszka Radwanska 6-7 (3/7), 6-3, 6-4.
