Caroline Wozniacki continued her blistering start to the 2017 season by fighting back from a set down to upend second-seed Karolina Pliskova 5-7, 6-1, 6-1 to reach the Miami Open final.

Pliskova came out firing in the opening set, ripping 24 winners and earning a late break point to take the early advantage.

To open up the second set, Wozniacki needed nine minutes to hold her in the first service game and carried that momentum to break Pliskova in the next game and consolidate with a hold to build a 3-0 lead.

Wozniacki made good on her break, saving all three of the break points she faced in the set and converting on Pliskova’s serve one more time to win the second and force a deciding third set.

As Pliskova’s serve abandoned her, Wozniacki made sure to take advantage. She broke the Czech in the third set’s opening game and won 82 percent of her first serve points to steamroll in the third set and reach the Miami final for the first time in her career.

The 12th seeded Dane moves on to play the winner of Venus Williams and Johanna Konta.
