You got fight
The match was full of momentum swings as the pair took turns in playing well. With Kerber serving down 4-5 in the third both decided they would give it their best at playing well at the same time and the result was some great point play from both players and great rallies for the crowd to enjoy, which unfortunately was just a handful of people as it has been always in Copenhagen unless Wozniacki is on court.
Kerber's opponent in her semi final will be former world number one Jelena Jankovic who bounced back losing the first set against Kaia Kaneppi 4-6 to eventually win 4-6 6-1 6-3. Jankovic seems to be picking her game in time for the clay season, where she has found consistent success in the past years.
In the quarter final between the two unseeded players, Bojana Jovanovski and Petra Matic. Both young emerging talents on the tour split the first two sets 6-4 while in the third set Matic got the advantage and prevailed 6-4 4-6 6-3.
The only quarter final not to go the distance featured top seed and twice defending champion, Caroline Wozniacki and she breezed passed Alize cornet 6-0 6-3 to improve to 14-0 in Copenhagen.
