Top-ranked Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark has been upset by Kaia Kanepi from Estonia at the Pan Pacific Open, 7-5, 1-6, 6-4. Kanepi, who is ranked 43rd in the world, rallied from three games down in the third set and won the match when she broke Wozniacki with a forehand down the line. Kanepi advances to face Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland in the quarterfinals who defeated the eighth-seeded Jelena Jankovic of Serbia 2-6, 6-4, 6-0.
“I played some good tennis in the second set and the first half of the third but then I couldn’t get my serve in,” Wozniacki said. “Kaia played a good match today. I’ll try to do better next time.”
Also advancing to the quarterfinals is the number two seed, Russian Maria Sharapova, a 7-6 (4), 7-6 (4) winner over Germany's Julia Goerges. Sharapova will face the number five seed, Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic, in a rematch of this year’s Wimbledon final. Kvitova advanced with a win over American Vania King 6-1, 7-6 (4).
